Your Essential Guide to Skincare Products

Whether you want to reduce wrinkles, alleviate inflammation caused by acne, or moisturize dry skin, a skincare center can help you create a personalized skin care treatment plan that is right for your skin’s needs. Some skin care products are essential for achieving healthy, youthful skin, regardless of your age and skin type. Keep reading to find out why exfoliating, moisturizing, and protecting your skin from the sun is important for men and women of all ages.

Light Moisturizer
Whether you have naturally oily skin, combination skin, or dry skin, moisturizing is important for maintaining hydration. Each time you wash your face or are exposed to sunlight, your skin loses some of its natural moisture. Without protective oils, your skin can become irritated and vulnerable to damage. Oily skin types should use water-based moisturizers, while people with dry skin should rely on moisturizers with plant lipids like sunflower oil or jojoba.

Gentle Exfoliator
An exfoliator is vital for skin care regardless of your skin type. Without exfoliating, dead skin cells accumulate, causing the skin to look dull. Dead skin cells also clog the pores, contributing to breakouts and acne. For a gentle way to exfoliate even sensitive skin, look for
products containing citric, lactic, and malic acids. The larger molecules in these compounds penetrate the skin more slowly and cause less irritation.

Protective Sunscreen
Exposure to the sun causes the skin to age prematurely, leading to wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin tone. A visit to a medical spa reveals that protecting against UVA and UVB rays is the foundation of a skin care plan for men and women of all ages. Even sun exposure at a very young age can lead to wrinkles later on, so it is best to start using a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher as soon as possible.

When you love your body, you want to show it off. Unfortunately, unsightly hair can prevent you from feeling confident about yourself. Both men and women can take advantage of IPL hair removal in Colorado Springs to remove their unwanted hair and gain back their confidence. If you are considering saying goodbye to razors and the amount of time it takes to shave regularly, read on to learn the answers to your questions about IPL hair removal.

What is IPL Hair Removal?

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) hair removal is a hair removal treatment that uses light therapy technology. Our IPL hair removal transfers light energy into heat energy to target your hair’s pigment. Using specific wavelengths, IPL removes the unwanted hair on your body.

How is IPL Hair Removal Different than Laser Hair Removal?
Other laser hair removal treatments only utilize a single wavelength to rid your body of unsightly hair. However, during the IPL hair removal process, a full spectrum of wavelengths are used. Sometimes your dermatologist will use an IPL laser that has combined radio frequencies to help your skin radiate. These frequencies can help your skin’s texture, as well as help complexions that need a bit of freshening. The IPL not only has the ability to remove unwanted hair, but can also potentially beautify the skin—all at once.

Is an IPL Hair Removal Treatment Painful?

Depending on how much melanin, or pigment, you have in your skin and how dense your hair is, discomfort will vary. If your skin is categorized as darker or if you have hair that is considered dense, you may have more discomfort than those who have less melanin and less concentrated hair. However, there is no need for anesthesia during the treatment and most people report that the discomfort is minimal.

Benefits of IPL Hair Removal:

  • IPL Hair Removal is precise. It only targets pigmented areas on the skin, such as the hair follicle. This is why only the hair follicle is affected and not the skin surrounding the area.
  • IPL has been proven to be extremely effective and safe.
  • IPL Hair Removal services can take anywhere from 5 minutes to a half hour for larger body areas.
  • There’s no downtime after the service.
  • IPL hair removal is an effective treatment for ingrown hairs. No more irritating skin and red bumps caused by those nasty ingrown hairs.
  • The procedure is virtually painless. Some patients have mild discomfort, but compared to other methods, IPL Hair Removal involves less pain.
  • Save money and time. Think of the money and time you will save by not having to remove hair the rest of your life.

If you are looking to remove your unwanted hair with the IPL hair removal treatment, contact BodyBrite Colorado Springs at 719-548-4991. Our expert staff provides the Southern Colorado community with affordable hair, skin and body treatments. We look forward to talking with you about helping you improve your life by providing you with greater confidence.

If you’re interested in using IPL skin rejuvenation for reduced wrinkles and blemishes, keep reading to find out if you’re a good candidate for intense pulsed light therapy.

Do You Have Wrinkles, Fine Lines, or Skin Discoloration?
IPL skin rejuvenation skin treatments are highly effective at reducing or eliminating the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and minor sun damage, such as freckles and sun spots. If the signs of aging have made you self conscious about your appearance, IPL skin rejuvenation treatments can help. IPL is also beneficial to those who suffer from rosacea, or who have blemishes, blotchy skin, or skin discoloration.

Has Your Busy Schedule Discouraged You From Pursuing Skin Treatments?
Many people shy away from visiting a med spa because they feel that they don’t have the time to indulge in skin treatments. IPL skin rejuvenation treatments are very quick, and require minimal downtime. This makes IPL one of the most convenient skin treatments for people with a busy schedule. Get started with our complimentary consultation today.

Do You Have a Fair Complexion? 
Intense pulsed light therapy is primarily effective on people who have a fair complexion. If you have pale skin that isn’t highly tanned, IPL skin rejuvenation can be incredibly successful at improving the overall appearance and texture of your skin. If you have a pale skin that suffers from rosacea, blotches, or blemishes, IPL skin rejuvenation can restore your skin to its original, uniform skin tone. IPL skin rejuvenation is not as effective for those who have tanned skin or darker complexions.

If you’re interested in IPL skin rejuvenation in Colorado Springs, come see us at BodyBrite. We offer a number of safe, effective skin treatments and spa treatments that can reduce wrinkles and blemishes, and leave your skin restored and refreshed.
