A PhotoFacial is a unique facial that doesn’t use water, products, or cleansing and exfoliation techniques to perfect the skin. Instead, it uses IPL technology, which stands for intense pulsed light. This powerful light increases collagen and elastin production while also speeding cellular turnover. The body responds to the treatment with a healing reaction and replaces old, damaged skin cells with healthier and younger cells to restore youth in life to your skin.
PhotoFacials can address a variety of different skin concerns. Patients with completely different skincare goals can both schedule this treatment and reach their goals. The results are long-lasting and can make a significant difference in the health and appearance of your skin, especially if you suffer from noticeable problematic skin conditions.
IPL vs Laser
Unlike most laser treatments, PhotoFacials use intense pulsed light. During the treatment, literal pulses of intense light will penetrate your skin’s surface and reach beyond the surface into the deeper layers.
What Can It Treat?
A PhotoFacial is a versatile treatment that can address many different skin concerns. It can eliminate the many different types of hyperpigmentation, including melasma, brown spots, age spots, sun spots, and sun damage. It also addresses the many signs of aging.
It can reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and facial folds and improve skin elasticity which will, by default, correct sagging or drooping skin. We can also use it to create a more even skin tone, address textural irregularities, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and brighten the complexion.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
A PhotoFacial delivers many benefits and can help patients improve their skin after just one session. Patients with acne can benefit from this treatment since the IPL light can destroy acne-causing bacteria within the pores to create a clear complexion. This treatment also encourages cellular renewal, which can help on multiple levels, specifically improving the appearance of acne, surgical scars, and textural irregularities.
Patients who have been using topical products or other solutions to eradicate stubborn pigmentation from the skin can finally achieve a uniform complexion by scheduling this powerful IPL treatment. Additionally, patients with visible blood vessels and chronic inflammation or redness can benefit from this treatment as it will calm the skin.
A Quick, Safe, and Effective Treatment
Unlike many cosmetic treatments, PhotoFacials are quick, minimally invasive, and affordable. These results-driven treatments take 30 minutes or less to complete, and we can schedule them to address skin concerns on the face and the body. They are safe and initiate a natural response within the body that will help you achieve an improved complexion.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see some immediate results following your first PhotoFacial, and your results will continue to improve in the weeks following treatment as the body responds to the intense pulsed light with new collagen and elastin. It can take several weeks for the body to grow these anti-aging proteins, but when it does, you’ll see a noticeable difference in the appearance of your skin.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Once you experience this treatment, you can enjoy visible results for six to 12 months. PhotoFacials don’t have to be one-time treatments, although a single treatment will produce dramatic results. You can schedule them as maintenance treatments after you complete your treatment plan to address your specific concerns, maintain your results, or target additional concerns later on.
Can I Combine IPL Treatments With Other Skin Care Treatments?
A PhotoFacial can be combined with other cosmetic treatments to achieve your ideal appearance. Depending on which cosmetic treatments you want to add to your skincare routine, you may need to wait a certain amount of time after your IPL treatment to ensure optimal results. We can evaluate your skin and make treatment and product recommendations so that you can take a well-rounded approach to perfect your complexion.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for this IPL treatment are patients interested in addressing different skin concerns through a safe and minimally invasive treatment process. Patients of various ages with diverse skin concerns who want to improve their skin and target specific imperfections and concerns that aren’t responding to product use or regular facials make good candidates for this treatment.
Specifically, patients with acne, sun damage, and the signs of aging can benefit from this treatment. Patients who are pregnant, nursing, or currently taking Accutane may not qualify for the treatment. A pre-treatment consultation is important in determining your eligibility and ensuring that a PhotoFacial is the right choice for your skin. Once we learn more about your skin, concerns, and ultimate goals, we can confirm your candidacy and schedule your first appointment.
