Fortunately with new treatments for your skin, you can easily slow down the aging process on your skin and stop some of the effects of growing old. A new form therapy using light treatment called intense pulsed light (IPL) has shown great results in reducing the aging effects in the skin.

IPL is used to remove unwanted hair follicles and skin pigmentation on any part of your body. This will help create a smooth and even skin. Intense pulse light treatment makes use of a light ray administered through a robotic arm. Using a computerized system, they are able to precisely position the arm over the affected area and administer a light pulse. The intensity of the pulsing light makes it easy for it to reach deep under the skin. As a result, the concentrated light ray can reach hair roots and effectively remove them with long lasting effects.

Many patients have seen their desired result in as few as just 2 sessions of treatment. Normally effective treatments will take about 2 -8 sessions over a 2 month period.

With proper protection with sun block and moisturizer, you can protect your skin. There are now many spas that offer IPL in Fayetteville at an affordable rate.
