Photo facial (also known as Foto Facial) or Laser Rejuvenation is a break thru skin treatment that uses light-based technology. Photo facials are mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen.
Like touching up a face in Photoshop – only for real! One of the main advantages of these treatments is that you can achieve significant improvement of sun damage skin with no healing or downtime. The best results come after a series of photo facial treatments.
Results will vary but you should expect your skin to appear reddened. You can expect to return to your normal activities immediately with minimal precautions such as sunscreen.
Unlike those cosmetic skin care treatments that remove the outer skin and require significant healing time, an IPL (intense-pulsed light) photo facial gently penetrate the skin without damaging it and destroy the blood vessels and brown pigment that are the cause of the problem. It also boosts collagen, which creates plumper, younger-looking skin. IPL photo facials are a good choice for people who want to boost collagen or treat rosacea.acne. The results won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, but it’s a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go.
A photo rejuvenation session is best for fine lines,open pores, shallow acne scars, age spots, broken blood vessels, Rosacea and sun damage. It also can be used to treat sun damage and weathered areas on the neck, arms and chest, as well as the back of hands.
The number of photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you’re treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds. For optimum results atleast 5-6 sessions are required. Photo facials work best in conjunction with a regular skin care routine that you can develop with Dr.Meghna.
