The Main Goal Of Photofacial
Frequently Asked Questions
How To Prepare for a Photofacial?
Because a Photofacial involves the application of intense light waves, you will be asked to make certain preparations prior to treatment. The goal is to ensure that your Photofacial treatment is as productive and effective as possible. To prepare, you will be required to avoid self-tanners or excessive sun exposure for two to four weeks. “Excessive sun” includes beach and pool time, laying out in the sun, or being exposed to strong rays in activities such as boating, sports, running, or other outdoor activity.
Am I a Good Candidate for Photofacials?
IPL treatments are safe and effective for virtually anyone with skin abnormalities such as skin texture issues, uneven tone, sun damage, rosacea. However, there are exceptions. Those who are prone to developing raised keloid or other types of excessive scarring or hyperpigmentation might not make ideal candidates. Individuals with chronic skin conditions or infection may not react well to IPL treatments.
What to Expect After a Photofacial Treatment?
Be proactive with your application of ice packs, using them at 15-minute intervals every hour. You’ll want to use aloe vera gel to soothe the area or a Hydrocortisone cream.The treated area may have redness and be tender to the touch, but this typically resolves itself within 2-24 hours, although it can last up to 72 hours.You can shower or bathe as usual, although cooler temperatures for these will likely feel better on your skin.
What To Expect After A Photofacial Treatment?
A Photofacial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), or brown spots. Light brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment. Immediately following the treatment, superficial spots will begin to darken. Over the course of the next one to two weeks, the darkened spots will fade and flake off, revealing the newer, younger, lighter skin beneath.
Can Photofacials Help With Sun Damaged Skin?
Sun damage is a primary cause of many signs of aging and definitely leads to premature aging symptoms. UV rays trigger and speed degeneration of skin function, leading to loss of skin elasticity, moisture, and an overall aged appearance.Those who have spent a lot of time in the sun will often find irregular brown and red discoloration of the skin. These sunspots and broken capillaries are at the surface level of the skin. Although common, age spots can prematurely age your appearance. IPL eliminates discoloration and makes the skin tone brighter and even. Through a process called Selective photothermolysis, IPL instantaneously heats up the chromophore responsible for the skin’s color, and leaves surrounding skin tissue unharmed.
What to Avoid After a Photofacial Treatment?
After treatment, you also want to avoid harsh exfoliants, brushes, and sponges until your skin has healed. It’s also best to avoid the following for a period just after treatment:
-Saunas hot tubs, and Jacuzzis
-Anything that will cause excessive perspiration
-Activities that cause excessive perspiration
