Congested skin is one of the most common skin complaints and as a result there are a range of treatment options available, both over the counter, and professionally. However, there is no other treatment that can match the performance and results of the illumiFacial®. So what are the advantages of illumiFacial® treatment for congested skin, and why should you choose this treatment option?
What is congested skin?
Congested skin is a term used to describe skin and pores that have become blocked with dead skin cells, impurities, sebum and sweat. These blockages leave skin pores open and the skin will feel rough and bumpy to the touch. Congested skin may also have a dull complexion and an uneven texture, and this can also become more prone to acne and infections as well as blackheads.
What is an illumiFacial® treatment?
An illumiFacial® treatment is an innovative treatment option that combines specialist serums with state of the art IPL technology, to ensure the best possible results for your facial skin. This treatment works through a number of different stages, as follows:
Cleaning the surface of the skin in preparation
Applying a fruit acid chemical peel to cleanse the outer layer of the skin, opening the pores and removing blockages.
An IPL treatment will then be used. This involves using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to target imperfections within the skin, including patches of discolouration or even blockages under the pores.
Applying a hydrating serum to protect, regenerate and soothe the skin.
What are the advantages of illumiFacial® treatment for congested skin?
An illumiFacial® treatment can be a very effective option for a wide range of skin related issues, including thread veins, lines and wrinkles and skin complexion issues. For congested skin, this is also a highly effective treatment option that can bring a number of benefits and advantages. These include:
Targeting acne and blocked pores at every level- when you opt for an illumiFacial® treatment you can target blocked pores at the surface of the skin, as well as glands that may be overworking and producing too much oil which then blocks pores. This treatment can even target cystic acne by reaching the fluid-filled cysts inside the skin. This is because of the different treatment options that work together. Firstly, the acid peel will help to unblock pores and start cell rejuvenation at a surface level. When this is followed with professional IPL treatment, the glands under the skin, and any acne cysts, can be directly targeted with the light rays. These will turn into heat energy inside the skin, damaging and destroying acne cysts, as well as overactive sebaceous glands. As a result, your skin will feel smoother and fresher, and in time the acne or congestion is unlikely to return, because of the skin rejuvenation and regeneration.
Fast acting with noticeable results- A professional illumiFacial® treatment has almost instant results, with the smooth skin texture and healthy nature of the skin surface being noticeable as soon as the treatment is completed. There is no other treatment option that acts so quickly, especially when dealing with skin congestion.
Skin healing and regeneration- illumiFacial® treatment is a fantastic option for regenerating the skin cells and improving skin health. This treatment, through the various stages, can stimulate the production and growth of new collagen cells, which can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of red or brown skin discolouration associated with acne scars and breakouts.
