How Does PhotoFacial Work?
PhotoFacial is different from regular ablative skin treatments that stress the skin mechanically. Instead, the technique relies on sending short pulses of visible light onto the surface, designed to kick-start skin cells’ internal reparatory processes. Repeated often enough, this technique could make the skin appear younger and help you combat a range of skin conditions. However, results vary from patient to patient.
What Skin Problems Can Be Treated?
PhotoFacial is ideal for treating a range of common skin problems, including:
- Excessive pigmentation of the skin resulting from UV exposure or the natural aging process
- Rosacea and other inflammatory conditions that affect the surface of the skin and alter its appearance
- Aged skin, including dryness, wrinkles, and peeling
- Flushing – a common problem in a range of pro-inflammatory conditions
PhotoFacial uses “non-ablative” methods, meaning that it does not remove or damage any existing skin tissue to generate the rejuvenating effect. The system is wholly non-invasive and applied with a light wand.
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
While a single treatment may be useful, most patients opt for multiple sessions over several weeks, as this tends to yield the best results. Typically, patients require between three and five treatments, separated by three-week intervals. The more severe the pigmentation or inflammation of the skin, the more procedures are needed.
This type of skin treatment offers a host of benefits over ablative and invasive alternatives. With BBL PhotoFacial, there is no downtime. There’s also much less discomfort compared to some other skin rejuvenation techniques. The system relies entirely on the use of light pulses to deliver the desired effect.
Why is Our PhotoFacial System the Best?
Here are some of the reasons why you should consider treatments using the Sciton BBL system:
At our practice, we use a highly advanced PhotoFacial system made by Sciton BBL. The kit uses a unique cooling tip that helps to make the treatment more comfortable and enhances safety. The system has proven benefits in helping to reduce skin aging, cutting down on age-related spots and reducing redness caused by inflammatory conditions.
Gemini Laser Treatment
Some unwanted skin features, such as spider veins and pigmented lesions, can be a challenge to remove with standard PhotoFacial techniques. We, therefore, can use a Gemini Laser to remove any resistant redness or blemishes. Over the years, we have found that the combination of the two techniques oftentimes yields superior results than either does individually.
Levulan is a treatment for mild and moderate sun damage, and it’s especially beneficial for those with precancerous lesions. We can combine it with your therapy for maximum effects.
