An intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment is a versatile, non-invasive way to tackle your top skin concerns! From improving pigmentation issues such as age spots and rosacea, to reducing unwanted hair, IPL treatments at The Office of Robert S. Feins can do it all.

If you’ve been thinking about getting an IPL treatment, now is a great time to schedule your first session! There are many benefits to receiving IPL treatments from our experienced esthetician, especially during the fall. Here are four reasons why this season is the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin.

1. Autumn is a great time to treat summer skin damage.

With summer behind us, now is a great time to address any skin damage that may have occurred over the past few months. While we all love being in the sun, it can take a toll on our skin.  IPL treatments can help to reverse damage and restore the health of your skin.

Sun exposure can cause a variety of skin concerns, such as:

  • Spider veins  
  • Sun spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines

IPL session can improve the appearance of these issues, helping you enter the new season with a more even and youthful complexion! This advanced method of skin rejuvenation can effectively treat discoloration while encouraging collagen production.

2. It’s easier to protect your skin from the sun during the colder months.

IPL treatments temporarily make your skin more sensitive to the sun. You will need to protect the treatment area with clothing or sunscreen to avoid potential sun damage after an IPL session, and many people find this easier to do in the fall.

For example, if you have IPL hair removal performed on your legs or arms, you can easily wear a longer layer to protect the area. In the summer, you would probably leave the treated area exposed and need to diligently re-apply sunscreen.

If you have IPL performed on your face, you’ll need to wear sunscreen no matter what the season is.

3. Fall is the perfect time to start getting ready for the holidays.

All of the big, glamorous holidays are right around the corner! If achieving even, smooth, youthful skin is on your to-do list, then IPL treatments might be right for you.

To look your best for any upcoming family gatherings or festive parties, start receiving your IPL treatments soon. Most people need several sessions, spaced roughly a month apart, to see the most dramatic results.

4. There is no downtime, so you won’t need to interrupt your busy schedule.

Fall is a busy time of the year for everyone! You might not have time to dedicate to recovering from a procedure right now, and that’s fine.

There is no downtime after an IPL treatment, so you can immediately get back to your normal routine. You may notice some redness, which usually fades shortly after a session.
