How does Laser Photo Facial Treatment Work
Photo facial is a skin treatment which uses some kind of light-based technology. It has a number of different uses, but is mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen.
The two main types of technology used for photo facials are IPL (intense-pulsed light) and LED (light-emitting diode). They are completely different from each other, so it's extremely important to understand which photo facial technology is being used.
An LED photo facial is a very gentle treatment which uses narrow spectrum light to boost collagen, which creates plumper, younger-looking skin, or even to kill the bacteria that causes acne. This Kind of photo facial is mainly used in a day spa with a serious focus on esthetics.
Does a Laser Photo Facial Hurt?
LED photo facials are painless, cool and relaxing, and carry no risk of burning. The best results come after a series of photo facial treatments. To begin, a series of six treatments with one-to two weeks between is recommended. After that, maintain with a treatment every month or two. It can be part of a facial or a stand-alone treatment.
LED photo facials are the best choice for people who want to boost collagen or treat acne. Their collagen-boosting, facial rejuvenation properties have been proven to be very effective with medical research. The results are not as dramatic as plastic surgery, however it's more gentler, more natural, and less expensive way to go.
Some medical spas call intense-pulsed light or IPL, which is a type of laser treatment, or a photo facial. An IPL photo facial can treat a variety of skin conditions which includes brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and facial redness. An IPL photo facial produces a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through a hand-held device. While some IPLs have cooling devices, it can be uncomfortable, or sometimes even painful.
An IPL photo facial is the better choice if you have broken capillaries, brown spots, or overall redness, called diffused facial redness. The number of sittings for an IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition of your skin and also the problem that you're treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds. Photo facials work best in conjunction with a regular skin care routine that you develop with your esthetician.
