3 Reasons To Get An IPL This Season

If you grew up on the coast of California, it’s most likely that you’ve spent a lot of your time in the sun during the summer months. Soaking in the rays at the beach, hiking along the coast, or even kayaking in the bay, your skin has seen its fair share of sun. Now, years later, you might be seeing the effects of that sun exposure in the form of sunspots, wrinkles, or skin laxity.


IPL, or intense pulsed light treatment, can help you achieve a smooth, even complexion and a fresh start for your skin. IPL can effectively treat a wide range of skin issues, and Dr. Sarah Vakkalanka and the skincare experts at Allure Anti-Aging and Aesthetics can help you decide whether IPL therapy is right for you.


Here are just three reasons why you should consider IPL treatments this season.

1. Improve the Appearance of Sun Damage and Discoloration

IPL is known for treating many skin issues, but one of its primary uses is addressing the effects of sun damage, including wrinkles, textured skin, sunspots, and enlarged pores. The Lumecca IPL treatments at Allure Anti-Aging & Aesthetics operates by using photothermolysis, delivering a photo facial comfortably through light. Lumecca delivers energy deep into the dermis, breaking the melanin clusters in the skin and evens out your skin tone.


If you’re developing tiny spider veins on your face or if you suffer from generalized redness, also known as rosacea, our IPL treatments can help target these issues. The light energy closes off and destroys these pesky veins to leave your skin more even and less red.

2. Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Our IPL photo facial can not only break apart blemishes beneath the skin’s surface, but the light energy can also stimulate fibroblasts, which will help boost your body’s natural production of collagen. Collagen is the primary protein responsible for keeping your skin’s structure strong and supple. With age, your collagen fibers begin to break apart, and your collagen production slows down, resulting in wrinkles, lines, and skin laxity.

By stimulating the body’s collagen production, we can create new structural support for your skin, firming your skin from below to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Little Pain, Long-Lasting Results

Before your treatment, we will make you as comfortable as possible by first applying a topical anesthetic gel onto your skin. During your treatment, you may feel a slight pinching sensation, but any discomfort is generally short-lived. Because we’re tapping into your body’s own resources to rebuild healthy skin, your results are long-lasting.
