Not Just for Women: How Men Can Benefit From IPL Treatments

Intense Pulsed Light treat­ment (IPL) is a tech­nol­ogy in the beauty world that has been gar­ner­ing much atten­tion lately for its abil­ity to remove and heal blem­ishes. Though some­times viewed as a treat­ment designed specif­i­cally for women, IPL has a wide vari­ety of appli­ca­tions and is equally use­ful for men’s needs. Many men ben­e­fit from Intense Pulsed Light and are now able to cor­rect cer­tain aspects of their phys­i­cal appear­ance, which were pre­vi­ously thought to be per­ma­nent. Some of these include acne, scars or lesions and hair growth.

IPL Can Help Clear Up Acne

Many men are turn­ing to IPL to help in clear­ing up their acne issues. Espe­cially for adults, acne can be embar­rass­ing and frus­trat­ing. Though viewed as a some­what teenage ail­ment, many adults includ­ing adult men, face acne well beyond their teenage years. Try­ing many dif­fer­ent lotions, soaps and pills to cure acne can be dis­cour­ag­ing and time con­sum­ing. Intense Pulsed Light ther­apy has pre­sented a quick and con­sid­er­ably eas­ier alter­na­tive to all of these meth­ods and is a great way for men to tackle chest, face and back acne.

Reduce Unsightly Scars or Lesions

Despite the pop­u­lar anec­dote that says, “Chicks dig scars,” many men feel they have unsightly scars, par­tic­u­larly facial scars caused by acne. In addi­tion to this, pig­mented lesions caused by bro­ken blood ves­sels close to the sur­face of the skin can leave unsightly and confidence-stealing blem­ishes for men. Intense Pulsed Light ther­apy helps to heal these scars and lesions by reduc­ing the amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pig­ment that makes the lesion or scar vis­i­ble, and when reduced, the treated area will even­tu­ally fade.

Avoid Unwanted Hair Growth

Many men also have unwanted hair growth on their shoul­ders, chest and back, or else very course hair on their face that causes ingrown hairs. Intense Pulsed Light can help reduce these prob­lem areas in much the same way that it helps with scars. The light reduces the amount of pig­ment in the hair. When the light is absorbed, it turns into heat; this actu­ally serves to destroy the hair fol­li­cle so that regrowth will even­tu­ally cease to occur. Many men have found that this is an effec­tive way to fight unwanted areas of hair growth.

These three sig­nif­i­cant areas of per­sonal care are all areas that men have con­cerns with. Intense Pulsed Light ther­apy has proven to be an excel­lent way for men to address these con­cerns eas­ily and with lit­tle has­sle. Though IPL ther­apy has in the past been tar­geted as a beauty tech­nique, it is really focused on per­sonal care and can help peo­ple of both gen­ders achieve the look and body that they want. By clear­ing up acne, reduc­ing scars and dis­cour­ag­ing unwanted hair growth, IPL helps men gain the con­fi­dence in their appear­ance they need and desire. Many men have turned to Intense Pulsed Light as a way to improve their looks. If you are look­ing for a way to over­come some aspects of your phys­i­cal­ity, IPL might be an excel­lent option for you.
