Everyone has experienced using a product and discovering that it did not perform as promised. Or maybe your product doesn’t work as well as it should eliminate skin imperfections. When all else fails, perhaps it’s time to try one of our skin resurfacing procedures, the Photofacial procedure.
A skin treatment called photofacial, also referred to as photo rejuvenation, uses light-based technology to address various skin problems. However, it would be best if you first understood how the treatment could benefit you. So here are some benefits:
1.) Photofacial Is Simple And Quick For Anyone
Photofacial is a procedure that involves the skin being treated with a high-intensity light. While the treatment will be administered in an inpatient facility, the appointment will only take a few minutes to complete.
During the procedure, a Photofacial machine will be used, directing several LED lights at the patient’s skin. The light energy is taken in by the skin, where it is converted into heat, which then causes the body to reach its natural healing state and begin the process.
No needless instruments will be used to pierce the skin; only simple, concentrated light will make contact with your skin. Thanks to this feature, it is a method that does not involve any invasive procedure, which explains why it is so simple and quick to carry out.
2.) Avoid the Signs of Early Aging
Sun exposure is the primary contributor to premature aging, but other contributing factors exist. The aging process can be accelerated by many factors, including genetics, smoking, and environmental factors.
By undergoing Photofacial treatment, you can prevent premature aging or even delay its onset, in addition to fixing some signs of aging in general.
The skin is heated during a photofacial, resulting in more serious superficial damage than the surface. The fact of the matter is that they are not damages but rather micro-injuries. Although the body treats them as wounds, they are only minor wounds that occur on the surface.
After this, the skin will make an effort to repair itself, and as it does so, it will make room for new growth and reinforce the existing structure with new cells. While it technically causes damage but clears space for new cells, preventing premature aging.
3.) Addresses Acne Breakouts
Photofacial can help reduce the effects of acne by eliminating the bacteria responsible for its outbreaks. High intense light pulses from photofacial can eliminate most bacteria, if not all of it, after only a few sessions. In addition, it assists in the healing process of scars left behind by acne.
However, you shouldn’t anticipate seeing any results right away. It will be some time before the acne is completely gone and your skin is completely healthy again.
4.) Repairs Sun-Damaged Skin
Even though you might not personally experience any unfavorable experiences from not using sunscreen, your skin will. The vast majority of us do not find the absence of sunscreen to be problematic.
Sun exposure is directly responsible for most of the alterations in skin conditions typically associated with aging. An unhealthy amount of sun exposure can cause the collagen in the skin to break down, making us more prone to developing sagging skin, fine lines, age spots, and sagging skin.
Similarly, the pigmentation of the skin becomes more uneven. The UV light from the sun can also break down elastin, causing it to lose its hydration and become crusty.
UV light causes the DNA fabrics in our skin to become damaged, leading to premature aging. This does not happen overnight but rather throughout a lifetime of spending excessive time outside without any protection from the sun.
You will be relieved to know that by undergoing photofacial treatment, you can significantly lessen the effects of these damages. It does this by increasing the skin’s collagen stores, which in turn helps the skin repair the damage it has sustained.
5.) Removes Dilated Veins And Capillaries.
The accumulation in your veins and capillaries is the cause of their enlargement, which can be seen as a bulging appearance. Therefore, when we target that accumulation of blood with Photofacial light, it will heat up, leading to an increase in blood flow. When the body temperature rises, the size of the veins and capillaries also increases.
As a result of the accumulation being removed, the walls of the veins and capillaries will start to decrease. The treatment enables the patient to undergo light therapy of progressively increasing intensity at predetermined intervals until their symptoms improve.
6.) Reduces Stretchmarks
Stretchmarks are a common skin issue that you might notice on your body. They are brought on by the constant pulling and stretching of the skin. Having stretch marks can be very discouraging because they make you appear older.
Fortunately, Photofacial can help reduce stretch marks. It accomplishes its goals by concentrating on the collagen found in the dermis and then treating that collagen with a high-intensity light to lessen the appearance of stretch marks. Since the collagen has been restructured from the bottom up, the surface layers have an even consistency.
7.) Photofacial Can Perform Hair Removal
When the appropriate adjustments are made, photofacial can also be utilized to remove facial hair. This is accomplished by directing pulses of light toward the roots of the hair. This will cause the hair to enter its resting phase, ultimately resulting in its falling out.
It will be quite some time before the hair begins to regrow. So you can forget about shaving or waxing your hair to maintain a low level of hair.
8.) Photofacial Is Applicable In Any Body Part
The device that administers the Photofacial treatment resembles a futuristic handgun and fires light in a focused direction. Your healthcare provider will have no trouble using the device because it is easy to manipulate and access virtually any body part.
Whatever flaws need to be addressed, the Photofacial tool is sure to be able to get there. All that is directed of you is to point out areas with room for improvement. When you come to our clinic for a consultation, we will discuss whether or not the repair of a specific area is appropriate for the problem you are experiencing.
