Everybody is clamoring for supple and youthful-looking skin with no blemishes and scars. Photofacial or photorejuvenation is the latest light based beauty enhancement trend that can remove fine lines, marks, and other issues, and it does all of this without any needles or surgery. You can undergo this procedure at Medical Aesthetics of New England.
What Are Photofacial Treatments?
These are dedicated to enhancing your skin pigmentation by employing light to affect the skin at a molecular level. There are no injections or incisions required in this light-based therapy. There are two different types of treatment–the XPL (xenon pulse laser) and the Prolite II IPL (intense pulse light) laser. The right option for you will depend on a number of factors.
How Does Photofacial Work?
Photofacial treatments involve light that is absorbed by the skin. IPL treatment lights are absorbed by the red blood cells present in the skin as well as melanin that form the root cause of maximum blemishes. Damaged hemoglobin promotes blood circulation while damaged melanin gets absorbed in the skin and fades away.
There are many specific blemishes and pigmentation problems that can be treated by getting Photofacial treatments. These include issues such as rosacea, liver spots, broken capillaries, hyperpigmentation, freckles, and sun damage, among others. IPL treatments can also be used to treat vascular lesions and port wine stains.
What Is The Process Like?
Photofacials are performed in the comfort of our office. You will be given protective eye-wear. A typical session can take anywhere from minutes to an hour. Usually, patients require a series of treatments that are spaced apart by a set amount of time.
