How can Westlake Village patients address discoloration of the skin?
Many conditions can result in the discoloration of the skin. Some patients experience skin problems such as rosacea, which can cause unwanted redness on the surface, as well as tiny bumps that negatively affect the texture. Others may have age spots, sun spots, or sun damage that may cause brown areas or hyperpigmentation. When this discoloration occurs, it detracts from one’s beautiful face. Thankfully, patients can undergo treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light photofacials to reduce these discolorations and improve the texture and tone of their skin.
Dr. Panagotacos of the Skin Care Centre in Westlake Village offers technologically advanced treatments such as IPL and photofacials for patients who are looking for a gentler alternative to laser therapy and resurfacing. IPL uses light to address imperfections in the skin and drastically improve the skin’s texture and tone. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated to improve elasticity of the skin and provide a firmer, more youthful appearance. At the same time, the intense pulsed light can target skin conditions and improve them drastically in just one appointment, though many patients continue to have treatments done for optimum results.
IPL is much less aggressive than laser therapy. Patients find that this treatment is gentler yet just as effective on discoloration. Those who have had microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials may have found that they are not strong enough to address stubborn issues of the skin. IPL photofacials may be the perfect alternative to provide noticeable results. During a patient’s initial consultation appointment, Dr. Panagotacos will examine the skin to determine what level of treatment may be required to successfully address the problem while improving the skin at the same time.
