If you suffer from red blotchy skin (rosacea), freckles, age spots, sun damage, uneven skin tone due to acne scars, or you feel that your skin is no longer radiant, don’t lose hope. Our photofacial treatment is a gentle skin rejuvenation solution to get an even, glowing complexion in just a 30-minute treatment!
Here are 5 reasons why you should consider getting a photofacial today and never look back.
1. We are living in a virtual deep freeze, NO ONE has a tan!!
Did you know that a Photofacial has to be done on totally natural skin? That means no spray tan, no bronzing moisturizer, and no passive tan.
Because our Photofacial treatments temporarily make your skin more sensitive to the sun, you will need to protect the treatment area with clothing or sunscreen to avoid potential sun damage after an IPL session, and many people find this easier to do in the winter.
2. Brown blotches aren’t cute!
Those tiny little freckles may have been cute at one point in your life, but as time goes by, they start to meld together and become blotches. For women who enjoy flawless skin, these dark spots can start to become very unappealing. They are also a stark reminder of the aging process and can make you look older and less attractive. Additionally, if left untreated, there is a potential risk that those blotches can turn into precancerous lesions, liver spots or solar lentigines…not so cute!
3. Myth: Nose veins are a result of alcohol consumption.
The red veins you see on your nose and across your cheeks are due to a weakening of the capillary, not a hot flash and not too much alcohol.
If you find them unsightly, photofacials are the perfect solution because they won’t go away on their own, and will progressively worsen over time. Our photofacial procedure treats these red veins by heating and damaging the walls of the blood vessel. This causes them to collapse and disappear over time. IPL is most effective on small veins close to the surface of the skin.
4. We have yet to meet someone that has too much collagen and elastin.
Photofacials deposit heat into the tissue, which helps to stimulate our body’s natural healing response resulting in a stimulation of collagen and elastin that maintains the firmness and tightness of the skin. Both of these fibers are plentiful in young skin and start to break down with natural aging and as a result of sun exposure. Our photofacial helps reverse the signs of aging by increasing collagen production to help create healthy and resilient skin.
5. Head to head study on which looks younger.
Did you know that studies show that it is discoloration of the skin, not necessarily wrinkles that lead to your perceived age to be older? Of course, we all want smooth, pore-free, wrinkle-free skin, but if your skin is full of pink and brown blotches, you are doing yourself a disservice. Our photofacial treatments give you a more smooth, youthful, even-toned appearance, and reduce pores.
