IPL, as mentioned, is noninvasive and stimulates the skin with light. It’s helpful for repairing visible blood vessels (such as under the eyes or neck), fading sun spots, and taking care of pigmentation issues. Many people with acne or scars from past acne challenges use IPL as a way to diminish scarring, large pores, and discoloration.
Radio Frequency (RF)
Another type of resurfacing can now be done with Radio Frequency technology. This unique process sends RF waves under the skin’s surface. It cleans the skin of any oil, dirt, and excess skin. Then it targets deep collagen production, giving an instant glow and overal smoothed skin tone.
Get Your Age Rejuvenating Facial with Skin Resurfacing
These treatments can be used on any area of the body, which is great if you are seeking multiple treatments for problem areas. The most frequently requested skin resurfacing treatments, by far, are done on the face, neck, and décolletage (chest).
At Wake Up Beautiful Spa we use the Venus Viva for Venus Versa for nonlaser resurfacing treatments. Both of these machines work wonders for our clients. They offer IPL, RF, and MP2 technology, which means it can be customized to treat a long list of skin concerns– even cellulite.
What we at Wake Up Beautiful Spa love about the Venus machines for resurfacing is that unlike intense lasers, it gives you the option to perform skin procedures that are safe and effective for all skin times. Lasers are not often safe for darker skin tones. But thankfully, growing technology allows aestheticians to use the benefits of FR and IPL to the advantage of any patient.
