Welcome to Beso

Seeking a radiant, rejuvenated skin tone? The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial at Beso Wellness & Beauty might be your solution. Serving Phoenix, Glendale, and Scottsdale areas, we bring this advanced non-surgical treatment to revitalize your skin and address a myriad of skin issues.

What is IPL Photofacial?

An IPL Photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of light to improve the appearance of skin. Unlike lasers, which use one wavelength, IPL uses multiple wavelengths to target various skin issues without damaging the skin’s surface.

Benefits of IPL Photofacial in Phoenix and Scottsdale

IPL Photofacial offers a range of benefits that not only rejuvenate the skin but also address various skin imperfections. Some of the notable advantages include:

  • Versatility in Treatment: While IPL Photofacial is commonly known for facial treatment, its efficacy extends to other parts of the body, including the neck, arms, legs, and shoulders.
  • Acne Management: Say goodbye to prolonged acne treatments. The IPL Photofacial works wonders in reducing acne and minimizing the appearance of large pores, giving your skin a smoother texture.
  • Reduced Signs of Aging: The treatment targets the deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin growth. This process effectively diminishes wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots, revealing a younger-looking skin.

Conditions Treated with IPL Photofacial

The IPL Photofacial is renowned for treating a variety of skin conditions. Among its numerous benefits:

  • Reduction of Sunspots and Age Spots: Years of sun exposure can lead to unsightly spots. IPL directly targets pigment-producing cells without affecting surrounding tissue.
  • Diminishing the Appearance of Rosacea: Rosacea’s red facial flushing and visible blood vessels can be treated effectively.
  • Treating Spider Veins: These small, unsightly veins can be reduced or even eliminated.
  • Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles: By promoting collagen production, IPL can help restore youthful elasticity.
  • Addressing Hyperpigmentation: Uneven skin tones or dark patches are no match for IPL.
  • Rejuvenating Skin: Achieve brighter, more vibrant skin.
  • Reducing Pore Size: Achieve a smoother complexion.

Ideal Candidates in Phoenix and Scottsdale

Not everyone might be a suitable candidate for the IPL Photofacial treatment. The ideal candidates usually are:

  • Individuals with light to medium skin tones.
  • Those aiming to treat sun-damaged, blotchy, or discolored skin.
  • Individuals looking to address minimal to moderate skin issues.
  • Those who have not been exposed to sun-tanning or sunburn recently.
  • Individuals not currently on medication like Accutane and not pregnant or breastfeeding.

Preparing for IPL Photofacial

To ensure the effectiveness of the IPL Photofacial treatment and minimize potential side effects, patients are recommended to:

  • Avoid direct UV exposure and always protect the skin with a sunscreen of at least SPF 30.
  • Refrain from smoking and taking anti-inflammatory medications a few weeks before the treatment.
  • Discontinue skincare products that contain minocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline, or retinol.
  • Stay hydrated and ensure the face is thoroughly cleaned before the appointment.

The Procedure in Phoenix

During the treatment, a handheld device will emit pulses of broad-spectrum light to your skin. These pulses target deep layers of the skin to correct pigmentation issues and stimulate collagen production. The process typically takes about 30-90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

Aftercare

Post-treatment, expect mild redness, similar to a sunburn, which subsides within a day or two. Sun protection is crucial after an IPL Photofacial. It’s recommended to use a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30. You should also avoid heat treatments, like saunas, and rigorous exercises for 24-48 hours post-procedure.
