Photofacials are an ideal treatment for skin care concerns ranging from sun spots and hyper pigmentation, to rosacea and broken capillaries. Having regular photofacials is a great way to keep the skin glowing, fresh, even-toned and beautiful throughout the year. With adequate skin aftercare, the results often last for years. Photofacials can be performed on the face, neck, hands, arms, back, legs and other areas exposed to the sun.
Photofacial therapy is a unique skin treatment that involves the use of pulses of light to penetrate deep into the skin. The therapy is used to treat various types of skin conditions in a non-invasive manner. The most important use of photofacial therapy is to reduce the signs of aging from the facial skin. Skin’s natural collagen may disintegrate due to aging, sun exposure, medications, hereditary factors or other causes.
This results in the skin losing its structure and elasticity, which causes wrinkles and folds. Photofacial therapy boosts natural collagen production to restore the skin volume and elasticity. The therapy is also used to treat certain types of acne conditions, broken blood vessels and enlarged pores. It is a safe and conservative procedure, and involves little or no discomfort and no downtime.
Photofacial therapy is usually performed using an IPL laser. If the skin’s capillaries have broken and skin appears reddish and parched, IPL photofacial therapy can help to improve the condition. The therapy delivers a bright and intense beam of light deep into the skin.
After the IPL laser treatment, skin imperfections will gradually disappear. Collagen stimulation also takes place with the same process, which helps to reduce irregularities of the texture, reduce large pores, and treat mild acne scars.
The doctor may choose photofacial therapy to treat a particularly type of acne condition. During the treatment, the laser beam is aimed over the target area, which helps to shrink the sebaceous glands underneath the skin. Ablative or non-ablative therapy may be used to treat acne, depending on the skin condition. Recent advances in acne photofacial treatments have significantly improved the ability to treat acne and acne scars.
