Eventually, your skin becomes damaged due to aging and exposure to the harmful sun’s UV radiation. Signs of skin damage often include stretch marks, uneven texture, spider veins, loss of elasticity, wrinkling, change in complexion, and dark patches. If you have a skin problem, IPL Cypress is one possible treatment solution. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) utilizes a blend of light pulses and concentrates them to reach the internal covering of your skin. Heating skin layers eliminates dead cells, increasing collagen production. Therefore you will have healthier, vibrant-looking skin.
Subsequently, below are some alternatives to IPL.
Fraxel laser treatment
The laser treatment enables the resurfacing of the skin to achieve a vibrant, even-toned appearance. Fraxel triggers the heating of tissues deep in your skin, leading to more collagen production.
Collagen is a protein that strengthens, hydrates, and provides elasticity to your skin. Since collagen creation happens, the skin becomes firmer.
Fraxel laser treatment is suitable if you want a treatment that reduces aging effects on the entire face and not just eliminates age spots. The procedure solves almost every sign of aging covering your face.
Like IPL, Fraxel laser treatment concentrates on the inner layers of your skin, has a shorter recovery period because it is not painful, and has long-lasting effects. Because the positive impact of the treatment stays with you for a relatively long period, you do not need to go to many treatment sessions.
Because the treatment involves laser light, skin spoiling or overheating may occur and cause complications like pigmentary alterations. The good news, though, is that your treatment specialist can diminish the appearance of potential complications by controlling the parameters of the laser after examining your health history.
Also known as microdermabrasion, the treatment design ensures the delivery of a comprehensive facial skin resurfacing solution. The medical procedure focuses on eliminating your skin’s external, unwanted layers. While other treatments focus on peeling the outer skin, dermal peeling action reaches deeper.
Moreover, dermal peeling assists in long-term skin rejuvenation by triggering the internal healing mechanism, including collagen production. That is why it is possible to consider this treatment an effective alternative to Intense Pulsed Light Therapy. Additionally, it is less demanding and costs relatively less.
Nonetheless, light therapy (IPL) still proves slightly better due to intensive penetration into the skin and faster stimulation of the skin’s healing mechanism. Microdermabrasion is not as powerful as IPL in encouraging the creation of collagen.
Well known as chemical peeling, the treatment involves using chemical agents or solutions to remove external skin layers and expose the youthful, vibrant-looking layers. Your dermatologist will determine whether you require light, medium, or deep chemical peel. Deep chemical peeling generates the most desired effect because of penetration into the deeper tissues of the skin.
Before you go for a chemical peel, avoid exposure a few weeks to treatment, do not use topical solutions for the skin, and ensure the areas for peeling do not have open cuts or wounds.
