When it comes to combat the signs of aging there are a number of different treatments that people will consider using. The latest of these is known as Photo Facial Laser Treatment. This is a treatment that is claimed to be able to reverse all things that result in the skin looking dull and lifeless and also to look old.
This particular type of treatment uses light to help reverse the damage caused to our skin by all kinds of environmental factors including sunlight. However, it does take more than one course of treatment for the desired results to be achieved.
The device that is used in Photo Facial Laser Treatment emits a gently pulsing light onto the area of skin that is damaged. This light instead of attacking the top layers of damaged skin instead penetrates right under to the epidermis instead. As this means that far less damage is being caused to the outer layers of the skin the area being treated doesn’t need as long to heal.
So as a result normally a course of around 5 or more treatments undertaken over a 3 week period can get the person’s skin looking wonderful once more. Whereas should you undergo conventional laser treatment to repair damaged skin then the course of treatment undertaken is done over an 8 to 12 week period allowing time between each course of treatment normally around 3 or 4 for the skin to heal.
Although you may feel some side effects from this form of treatment to reduce the signs of aging they are not as considerable as with say a face lift or other forms of laser skin rejuvenation treatments. The most common effect that people may suffer from immediately following this kind of treatment is redness to the skin and in most cases will only last for around a day.
So what does this treatment feel like? Some people who have undergone a course of this type of treatment before describe the feeling of the light touching the skin as similar to the feeling when a rubber band is being snapped against it. It isn’t uncommon that along with the redness mentioned above some people may experience a small amount of discomfort as well. But this discomfort can easily be controlled through the use of conventional pain medication such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. However, if any of the symptoms do persist then one should seek medical assistance as soon as one can.
Although far fewer treatments are required to achieve the desired results one needs to be aware that this new treatment is relatively expensive but not when compared with undergoing cosmetic surgery.
