If you are looking for a way to improve the look and feel of your skin, Photofacial therapy may be the perfect solution. It is a great option for those who want to reverse sun damage; eliminate age spots, freckles, and mild scarring; treat redness, roscacea, and hyperpigmentation; reduce large pores; or even out the skin tone. The treatment is non-invasive, gentle, and very quick. No recovery time is required and the results are almost instantaneous.
How does a PhotoFacial treatment work?
Photofacial treatment works by the application of gently-pulsed, intense light (IPL) on the surface of the skin. The heat and energy that the light creates is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels that cause redness as well as by the pigmentation in damaged skin cells. As it absorbs the light and energy, collagen production is stimulated and the skin begins a natural healing process that reduces problems like sun damage, mild scarring, and age spots while it restores a healthy and youthful tone to your skin.
Who is a good candidate for Photofacial treatment?
Photofacial is an ideal option for those who want a non-invasive, gentle, and easy way to erase freckles, age spots, redness, sun damage, and the appearance of visible capillaries and mild scarring.
Is Photofacial treatment safe?
Photofacial is a non-invasive, gentle treatment utilizing advanced light therapy technology. Unlike some laser and facial peel treatments, which are more aggressive and may burn the surface layer of skin, Photofacial relies on the energy and heat of the light therapy to penetrate the surface of the skin, destroying unwanted pigmented lesions and visible capillaries while stimulating the body’s natural healing process thereby reversing skin damage and discoloration from within.
There is little or no risk of serious complications from Photofacial treatment. In very rare cases, some may experience temporary bruising, swelling, and/or blistering. The most common side effects experienced by our clients are temporary redness and darkening of the pigmentation in treated areas. Patients should limit sun and UV exposure for several weeks before and after treatments in order to reduce their risk of complications and ensure the best possible results.
