When it comes to aesthetic treatments focused on skin rejuvenation and maintaining a youthful appearance, there are a wide range of options available. One option that is rising in popularity is the illumiFacial®. This innovative procedure combines a fruit acid peel with intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. But what does this achieve? And what are the important aftercare steps for illumiFacial® treatment?
What is the illumiFacial®?
The illumiFacial® is a cutting-edge facial treatment that targets various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
As a non-invasive treatment, the process will begin with a chemical peel. Specially formulated to complement the following IPL treatment, this is a fruit acid peel that will thoroughly cleanse your skin, while also nourishing and priming the skin.
Following this, the IPL treatment will begin. This advanced technology uses controlled bursts of broad-spectrum light to target specific areas of the skin. The light is able to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating collagen production and promoting cell renewal and regeneration.
During the IPL treatment you may feel a warm but mild sensation on the skin. The treatment will take around 45 minutes.
What can you expect from an illumiFacial® treatment?
When you opt for this type of aesthetic treatment, you can be sure of healthy glowing skin. Because an illumiFacial® treatment combines a chemical peel with IPL treatment, this means that different layers of the skin can be targeted specifically, achieving improved skin health and appearance.
In addition, the signs of ageing can also be reduced with an illumiFacial® treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles can be visibly reduced because this treatment increases the production of collagen firming the skin and replacing lost volume.
What are the important aftercare steps for illumiFacial® treatment?
After completing the illumiFacial®, it is crucial to follow a proper after care routine to maintain the results and also to support the skin’s healing process. Some important aftercare steps include:
- Sun protection: After an illumiFacial® treatment, the skin becomes more sensitive. As such, it is important to shield it from harmful UV rays. For this, you should consider using a high SPF, broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin even on cloudy days.
- Moisturise regularly: Hydration is essential for healthy skin and to help the skin recover. As a result, you should use a gentle, nourishing moisturiser twice each day to lock in moisture and to help keep your skin supple and fresh.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals: for a couple of days after the treatment you should try to avoid using makeup and skin care products that have harsh chemicals or exfoliants. These chemicals can irritate and even damage the skin while it is healing. As a result, you should instead opt for gentle and soothing skincare products.
