If you suffer from hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage and other skin problems, you’ll know that how your skin looks can really get you down. But you’re not alone, and there are things you can do – and, there’s a new laser treatment that YOU can benefit from. The Intense Pulsed Light photofacial procedure allows you to rejuvenate your skin in an easy-to-handle way. It’s an advanced dermatology technique which can transform red and blotchy skin into a glowing complexion.
What is photofacial technology?
The procedure only takes half an hour, and it uses intense light pulses to deeply penetrate the skin. Photorejuvenation, done with an IPL device, breaks down the blood vessel walls and fragments the melanin which is then absorbed by the body, making age lines and redness less visible. There is only minimal discomfort, and although your skin may swell and redden after the procedure, this doesn’t last long and the benefits will soon become clear.
Who can have a photofacial?
If your skin has wrinkles, freckles or large pores, or your skin is discolored, sun-damaged or blotchy, you are a good candidate for a photofacial. There is no downtime after the procedure and, as mentioned, it only takes half an hour – this means even the busiest people can fit a photofacial into their schedule. Photofacial treatments work best on white skin, and if your skin is tanned or dark there may be some complications – always make sure you do your research and ensure you consult with people who hold the correct qualifications!
Who can’t have a photofacial?
As mentioned, if you’re tanned or dark there could be complications such as unwanted skin lightning and melanin or pigment loss. If you’re taking Accutane medication or any variations, you will need to wait half a year after taking the drug before you try photofacial treatment. It’s also advised that pregnant women avoid photofacial treatments, and other laser procedures.
How much does a photofacial cost?
An IPL photofacial is more expensive than other skin procedures such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. On the other hand, it does cost less than laser skin treatment and cosmetic surgery – so it’s up to you to decide what’s best for your budget. The cost of your treatment will be determined by how severe your facial skin condition is, and how many treatments are required to heal your skin.
