- Are noninvasive, nonsurgical, effective, and safe
- Require no recovery time
The Science of Photo Facials
Broad-spectrum light penetrates multiple layers of skin, targeting primarily the lower layers (dermis) while leaving the top layers (epidermis) unaffected. Heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating various dermatological issues.
Photo facials come as two kinds:
- Light-emitting diode (LED): Narrow-spectrum light boosts collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin. They also help control acne flare-ups by killing harmful bacteria
- Intense pulsed light (IPL): Broad-spectrum light treats brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, uneven pigmentation, and redness
Photo facials are speedy and convenient. They let you get back your life right away. And they address pigmentation challenges and other dermatological issues that chemical peels can’t.
You may see results from your photo facial right away. They’ll become more noticeable seven to 14 days after treatment. Ideal results tend to require one to six treatments. Multiple treatments should be spaced two to four weeks apart.
The Photo Facial Experience
Before your IPL treatment your medical professional will apply a cold gel to the target area and give you eye protection to wear.
The treatment lasts around 20 minutes. During it your medical professional will gently apply the IPL hand piece to your skin. It delivers healing light in precise pulses.
Those clients who have felt any discomfort describe the feeling as similar to a rubber band snapped against their skin.
Extremely gentle and painless, your LED photo facial will require that you remove all makeup and wear protective eyewear. Your medical professional will position the LED light close to the treatment area for about 20 minutes. No heat is involved. This means you can go about your normal activities directly after your treatment.
Photo facials typically require little to no recovery time. More intense IPL treatments, however, may produce sunburn-like symptoms for up to two weeks.
You can expect outstanding results with both LED and IPL photo facials, if you’re diligent about scheduling treatments. Optimal results from IPL and LED photo facials usually require one to six treatments. Multiple treatments must happen in two- to four-week intervals.
Though LED results can be subtle at first, they continue to improve after each successive treatment. You’ll likely notice a big change in your appearance after undergoing LED photo facials for three months or longer.
The Photo Facial Decision
IPL photo facials’ broad-spectrum light penetrates multiple layers of skin. It may be ideal for you if you have:
- Fair, untanned skin
- Shallow acne scars or large pores
- Age-related fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular pigmentation caused by sun exposure, age, or medication
- Brown spots or facial redness
- Broken capillaries and spider veins
LED photo facials’ narrow-spectrum light boosts collagen production, harmonizes uneven pigmentation, and kills acne-causing bacteria. Effective on most skin tones, it may be right for you if you have:
- Mild-to-moderate acne or rosacea
- Mild wrinkles
- Dull or uneven skin
- Sun-distressed skin
- Increased collagen production
