Get Younger Skin With Photofacial Treatments
As we age, it is normal for our skin tone to become uneven. Dark, irregular spots appear, and our complexions become mottled and aged. Broken capillaries blossom into spidery veins across the nose and cheeks, and the skin begins to sag. It seems like there are more “miracle” cures available over the counter, by mail, or by prescription every day, but do they work? We know that facelifts can help with wrinkles and sagging skin, but they do nothing for skin color and tone. Skin rejuvenation photofacials are the most promising treatments weve found for this problem.
Photofacials work by applying concentrated light in a certain spectrum to the skin to fade away dark brown spots and burst capillaries, and to increase blood flow to the surface of the skin and boost collagen production for softer, more elastic skin. If you’re looking for photofacials treatment in Fort Worth and Southlake, you should know that there are two basic types of procedures that differ greatly from one another. You’ll need to know which one youre looking for if you want to achieve the best results for your skin.
First, theres the LED photofacial. LED photofacials use a limited spectrum light to kill acne-causing bacteria and to boost collagen production. Its a totally painless and relaxing process, and a lot of people look forward to their treatments on spa day. If youve never had LED treatment for skin rejuvenation before, its usually recommended that you start out with about six treatments over a 6-12 week period. After that, skin care professionals, recommend going back about twice a year. You wont get dramatic results from LED skin treatments the way you would with surgery, but you also wont have any down time, and your visits will be enjoyable and relaxing.
The other photofacial treatment process is called intense-pulse light (IPL) treatment. The results of IPL treatments are much more visible and dramatic than LED treatments. This treatment is performed by exposing the skin to a high-intensity blast of laser light through a hand-held device. IPL equipment will sometimes have a cooling device built in to help with discomfort, but this is not always the case. If youre looking for dramatic differences without surgery, IPL is the way to go, though the process is not always painless.
When looking for a skin rejuvenation photofacials treatment that is right for you, be sure to ask about LED and IPL treatments. You can discuss your expectations and which treatment will be best to meet them during your free consultation. Call us today at 817-427-3700 to schedule today!
