The Best IPL Photofacial in Houston TX

Photorejuvenation Treatment

26 YEARS OF COSMETIC EXCELLENCE
P

hotofacial, also known as IPL, phototherapy and photorejuvenation, is a highly effective cosmetology procedure. It utilizes the power of intense pulsed light that is significantly less traumatic than laser. This light has the ability to penetrate skin gently, causing minimal damage to its inner layers. By that, it stimulates regeneration, activating natural wound-healing mechanisms and improving collagen production. After a short post-procedure period, the result becomes obvious. It refreshes skin, making it younger-looking and resilient, as well as reduces various imperfections, including hyperpigmentation, black and white spots, acne, enlarged pores, and wrinkles.

Facial Skin Rejuvenation Procedure

P

hotofacial is a very multi-purpose procedure, aimed at wide range of skin issues and characterized by powerful anti-aging effect. First of all, due to the mechanics of intense pulsed light’s effect on skin, it boosts natural collagen and elastin levels. These are proteins, responsible for skin’s elasticity, tightness, ability to recover, and, basically, its youth. This means photorejuvenation is able to reverse sun damage, make signs of aging less visible, and improve facial contour.

On top of more general purposes like rejuvenation and skin care, peculiar issues IPL photofacial may address include hyperpigmentation, red and brown spots, enlarged pores, and freckles. This procedure has an advantageous constricting effect on vessels, so it provides a nice solution for broken capillaries, rosacea, and even undesired flushing. It is able to reduce wrinkles and scars. And at last, it is a powerful acne and post-acne treatment as it reduces sebaceous glands’ activity and stimulates regeneration.

T

he whole photofacial procedure lasts for about half an hour. It begins by setting the IPL machine for the customer’s skin tone (note that this treatment is not meant for tan or dark skin), then the professional covers the area of exposure with gel, tests how the skin reacts to the IPL on the less visible spot, and if everything is alright in several minutes, proceeds to the rest of the face. IPL is usually not applied to eyelids and they are covered by special goggles.

The frequency and number of IPL procedures are determined individually, but the pauses in between them should last for at least a month. The result is best seen in about a week after each session. The IPL treatment itself is painless; the worst sensation you may expect is minor discomfort. After visiting a cosmetologist, you will need to adhere to a certain post-procedure skin care routine and precautions, including intense moisturizing and avoiding sunlight for a couple of days.

T

he IPL’s main benefit is its comprehensive action. While the device the procedure is performed with may be calibrated to address specific problems more heavily, the intense pulsed light is always delivering the whole range of its promises to some extent. This means that even if you are doing the procedure to get rid of hyperpigmentation, you will still get tighter and smoother skin and other facial improvements. What is more, though multiple sessions are usually recommended, visible result is achieved soon after the first one.

Convenience and comfort are two more great advantages of IPL that complement its effectiveness. This is non-invasive, non-traumatic, and painless proсedure that almost won’t interrupt your usual way of life. It is performed quickly and it requires no downtime, only some simple precautions. If you follow all the rules, it is not associated with any risks and side effects. At last, this treatment is meant not only for the face but works well on any other part of the body too.

I have purchased numerous photo facials, threading and eye treatments at Sousan Med Spa. It's the best place I've ever been to - I really notice the luminosity of my skin after each treatment increases so much that I barely have to apply foundation. It really does make a difference what machines and people do photo facials and I've been to other places where it's almost like nothing was done. Not the case here - the difference is night and day. Treatments at Sousan Med Spa are now a big part of my skin care and overall plan to look & feel my best. Thanks Sousan & the whole sweet team there at The Spa!

Thank the heavens I found Sousan Med Spa! From the first moment I went to the gorgeous spa, I felt relaxed and was treated to best in class treatments, technology and service. Sousan herself is an amazing woman with such talent, knowledge and passion for health, beauty and wellness. I have had quite a few photo facials with a fantastic eye treatment and won't go anywhere else. You definitely get more than what you pay for - high quality machines and great attention to service. I had gone to Costa Rica and had freckles all over my face and was so worried that I was going to have to use foundations/cover up to hide all of the freckles. With one treatment since I've been back, my make-up routine has been reduced to a few dots of eye brightener, eye shadow and lipstick. I was just glowing after every procedure I've ever had at this spa. Staff are very attentive and you know they want you to have a spa experience while you're at Sousan Med Spa. Thanks soooo much & I will be back as often as possible :)
