Photo facial is a generic term for a skin treatment that uses some kind of light-based technology. Photo facials (sometimes called foto facials) have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen.
An IPL photo facial can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and facial redness. An IPL photo facial delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through a hand-held device.
An IPL photo facial is the better choice is you have brown spots, broken capillaries or overall redness, called diffused facial redness. The number of IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you’re treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds. The typical IPL Photo facial treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and they are typically scheduled across three week intervals. Most patients need between 5-8 total treatments to get the best results.
The actual Photo facial session itself can be somewhat painful for some, as the feeling of the laser beam on the skin is usually akin to that of a snapped rubber band. However, the pain usually subsides very quickly after treatment, as is rarely anything more than mild. Skin Tightening is a noninvasive, completely natural-looking alternative to invasive treatments or surgery. By stimulating healthy collagen, the Skin Tightening process firms sagging skin and fills in wrinkles at your jaw line, eye area, mouth and cheeks, jumpstarting organic cell growth – making your skin look and act more like the way it used to.
