There are benefits and drawbacks to getting older. What’s the biggest disadvantage? Most people would say it has to do with the way getting older affects your appearance. Thankfully, you can do some things to fight the way the aging process is changing your appearance. Photofacial treatments are a great way to help you reverse the toll aging is taking on your face and skin.
A Photofacial is not some form of a laser treatment. A lot of people have this misconception. What does it consist of? It uses extremely bright, broad spectrum light in order to improve the appearance of your skin. This light is generated from a special device that is passed over the surface of your skin. It is a non-invasive treatment. This means that no incisions will be made, no injections will be given and you will not experience any intense discomfort.
This treatment involves using gentle light pulses in order to penetrate the skin and then be absorbed by small blood vessels or unwanted pigmentation. This absorbed energy will cause the pigmented areas or the damaged vessels to start healing on their own. Eventually, the pigmented lesions will diminish.
So, what is a Photofacial treatment like? The treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. While you may see some results after the first treatment, most individuals need to have a series of treatments that are spaced a set amount of time apart. You can resume most all of your normal activities right after the treatment is given. There is absolutely no downtime involved with a Photofacial.
A Photofacial is a great option for individuals who are tired of covering up an uneven skin tone, pigmented lesions, blood vessels and other skin issues on their face and in other parts of their body. Instead of covering up your skin, use a Photofacial to make your own skin beautiful.
There’s nothing that can be done to completely stop the aging process. But Photofacial treatments can definitely help you to reverse some of the effects the aging process is having on your skin.
