Summer 2017 has been one of the best summers to date in Central Kentucky. Whether you took a boat out on Herrington Lake, rented a pedal-boat at Jacobson Park, enjoyed one of Lexington’s many public pools, or just visited your neighborhood (or neighbor’s) pool, the hot summer weather combined with beautiful sunshine makes Central Kentucky ideal for outdoor summer recreation. We all know that the sun’s rays wreak havoc on our skin, but it’s so hard to resist the sparkling water and the endless fun.
Summer is a glorious time, but it doesn’t always leave our skin equally glorious. While you were basking in the sun, did you always remember to reapply your sunscreen? While you were planting your flower beds or gardens, did you wear your sunhat? Unfortunately, sun exposure can speed up the aging process, create fine lines and wrinkles, discolor our skin, and generally leave us looking older than we want. After a summer of sun exposure, your skin needs a revitalization.
Towards the end of summer, photofacials, also known as IPL (intense pulsed light) are great for undoing some of the damage caused by soaking in the sun’s rays. During photofacials, broad spectrum light flashes are used to transmit energy to the skin to combat the effects of aging and treat fine line and wrinkles, age and sun spots, and skin redness. Your Be Medispa medical spa professional will place a small, smooth handpiece over your skin’s surface that will delivery high-intensity pulses of light into the lower layers of your skin. The light is changed to heat energy which immediately begins repairing damaged skin by stimulating collagen production. IPL works to rejuvenate damaged skin leaving you with a healthier, younger-looking appearance. For more information about photofacials, please visit our page here.
IPL photofacial treatments are quick and convenient, generally taking around 20 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. In general, a series of 3 to 5 treatments scheduled at 4-week intervals is recommended to address most skin concerns. IPL is a gentle laser treatment and side effects are minimal. In fact, many patients schedule IPL photofacials during lunch breaks and return to work immediately after. IPL is the perfect solution for end-of-summer skin rejuvenation.
