The majority of people in modern society are concerned about the way they look, and this concern is very understandable. Modern society places a lot of emphasis on how a person looks. This is thanks in part to technology that allows us to share our image with millions of people at the same time. Thanks to social media, a photograph that you take of yourself can be shared an infinite amount of times. People can edit that photograph, and they can add words to the photograph that could make fun of your appearance.
Due to all of these pressures, people are taking advantage of every cosmetic procedure available to make themselves look youthful, happy and healthy. A photofacial is one of these treatments. It is a skin treatment that uses light technology to help increase the amount of collagen you have in your skin. A photofacial can be used to treat everything from brown spots on your skin to broken capillaries.
A photofacial can treat facial redness, spider veins, as well as many other skin conditions. During the procedure, your skin is hit with a bright blast of light, which has a high energy level. Most patients report only minimal discomfort during the treatment.
Before you have the procedure done, you will talk to our medical professionals to explain what your goals are. Some people have the procedure because they want to increase their facial volume. Others have it because they want to make their skin look younger. For some, the end goal is to minimize the appearance of facial redness or other blemishes.
The number of treatments that you will receive will depend on the condition you are addressing as well as the results you want. Since different skin types respond differently, you may need more or fewer treatments, depending on your circumstance. For the best results, it is good to mix a photofacial with a diligent skin care routine. When you talk to our experts, they can help you create a skin care regimen that is right for you.
To get the best results from a photofacial, you need to be educated on what the procedure does. You also need to have realistic expectations. Since it is a non-invasive procedure, it may not provide the dramatic effects you will get from plastic surgery; however, it is gentler, less expensive and provides powerful results you will be happy with.
