How does Photo facial work?
An Intense Pulsed Light or IPL is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation. The heat causes damage to the vessel or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process. The lesion will darken before it flakes off or the body absorbs it. Treatment can be given as frequently as every 3 weeks.
For optimal results, a series of 3 to 5 treatments are recommended. Follow-up treatments may be desired one to two times a year to maintain optimal results.
Treatment improves sun spots, age spots, dull complexions, uneven pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, and early signs of aging. Treatment also improves red flushing skin, Rosacea, and broken capillaries. Enjoy smoother skin and more even tone with minimal discomfort during treatment.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown-pigmented spots may appear darker, and capillaries may be more visible.
What improvement will I see?
Patients have a high degree of satisfaction with their results. Expect to see a gradual decrease in redness, broken capillaries, flushing, irregular pigmentation, and fine lines. After each treatment, the skin will feel smoother and appear to have a more even tone.
