How Does a Photofacial Work?
Photofacial utilize Intense Pulsed Light, also known as Broad Band Light (BBL.,) to refresh and repair damaged skin. During the procedure, a highly trained laser specialist directs pulsated blasts of intense light at a specific skin area or imperfection. The energy from the light pulses safely penetrates the layers of skin, heating the tissue to stimulate a variety of biological responses that repair and rejuvenate the skin.
Some of the therapeutic benefits of the Photofacial include:
Skin Rejuvenation: The process of ND Yag energy penetrating the skin and heating the upper layers of the dermis results in instant rejuvenation of the skin, making the face look more radiant. The heat also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps the skin remain firm, taut, and free of wrinkles. New collagen production also helps to further restore the skin and improve its texture, skin tone and Corrects
The same ND Yag energy that triggers the production of new collagen can also be used to target areas where sun damage has caused melanin to accumulate, resulting in uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmented skin, such as freckles and brown spots. During the Photofacial procedure, the darker pigment in the melanin absorbs the energy. This intense thermal energy causes the melanin to safely fracture and break apart into smaller pieces. The fragmented melanin is then small enough to be absorbed by the body, causing the hyperpigmentation to fade gradually.
Is Photofacial Only for The Face?
Don’t let the name fool you. The Photofacial can effectively treat all of the same skin issues such as sun-damaged, redness and rosacea, and hyperpigmentation, and deliver overall skin rejuvenation on the areas of the neck, chest, and shoulders. It is also a beneficial therapy for hand rejuvenation.
Do Photofacial Hurt?
The procedure is fast and non-invasive. Individual experiences do vary, but some patients experience minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. The sensation is sometimes compared to the snapping feeling of a rubber band or a warm sensation.
