A Photo Facial is a skin treatment that uses light-based technology. Photo facials (sometimes called foto facials) have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for treating brown spots, broken capillaries, and boosting collagen in your face.
The two main types of technology used for photo facials are LED (light-emitting diode) and IPL (intense-pulsed light).
A LED photo facial is a tender treatment that uses tight range light to help collagen, which makes plumper, more youthful looking skin, or to eliminate the microscopic organisms that causes skin break out (acne).
Photo facials are easy going, cool and unwinding, and (not at all like IPL or laser medications) convey no risk of burning. The best results come after a progression of photograph facial treatments. To start, a progression of six treatments with one-to-two weeks between is suggested. After that, maintenance is required with a treatment consistently every month or two.
LED photo facials are a good choice for people who want to boost collagen or treat acne. Their collagen-boosting, facial rejuvenation properties have been proven with medical research. The results won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, but it’s a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go.
An IPL photo facial is the better choice if you have brown spots, broken capillaries or overall redness, that you want to treat. The number of IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you’re treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds.
