Ultraviolet light can cause signs of aging like sunspots and fine lines to appear on the skin. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) works on your face’s skin cells to improve its texture and tone. The energy impacts your collagen, elastin, and blood vessels to reduce spider veins, wrinkles, and more.
One Agora Integrative Health uses Venus Versa™ TriBella to deliver IPL. With quick sessions and proper aftercare, patients can experience a younger-looking appearance with no downtime. You can see the results in weeks.
Our One Agora specialists work with each patient to construct a personalized plan, walking them through the process to help them achieve their desired results.
Performed with the Venus Versa™ device, IPL Facial Rejuvenation uses Intense Pulsed Light to reduce the appearance of aging on the face, such as:
Ultraviolet (UV) light is responsible for many signs of aging. Infrared light from IPL, on the other hand, constricts and blood vessels and collagen while also stimulating the creation of elastin and collagen. This helps to improve your complexion.
IPL Facials are most effective on individuals with light or medium skin tones. Skin pigment absorbs IPL, so the more of it you have, the less successful the protocol is.
To prepare for your Facial Rejuvenation, avoid all forms of tanning for a month beforehand. Your One Agora specialist will tell you what types of skin products to avoid using before your appointment as well.
On the day of your IPL Facial:
You’ll wear eye protection during the treatment. Cool gel will be applied to your face as well.
How Facial Rejuvenation feels will depend on the sensitivity of the specific facial area being treated. Generally, you may experience a snapping-like sensation against your skin from the applicator. The built-in cooling system prevents discomfort and damage.
Your photofacial will last about 15-30 minutes. There is no downtime.
You may need to receive 4-5 treatments per area for optimal results. Return to One Agora in three weeks to receive your next session.
Temporary tingling, redness, warmth, and swelling skin might occur. Use cold compresses within the first day after your treatment to reduce warmth and swelling. Aloe vera, vitamin E, and oral pain medication may provide relief.
Avoid picking and scratching your skin. It is normal for sunspots and similar blemishes to darken and then fall away within two weeks. Call One Agora if your skin crusts, breaks, or blisters.
If there is no blistering, you may wear makeup after your session. Important aftercare tips include but are not limited to:
Your One Agora specialist will discuss your custom aftercare in further detail, such as what kinds of skincare products and chemicals to avoid, when you can shave, and when you can perform activities that make you sweat.
You’ll begin to see results in the following weeks. For the next 3-6 months, you may experience:
Sun protection will lengthen your results.
