Age and sun exposure are not particularly friendly to your skin. The sensitive skin on your face is vulnerable to discoloration, rosacea, sun spots, freckles, and more, and this vulnerability only increases with age. Consequently, the older you get, the less comfortable you probably feel when people take photos of you. However, with the right tools, you can combat these negative effects so that your face regains and retains a more youthful appearance. Depending on your skin’s condition you can do a couple of photofacials and be ready for your close up!
What is a Photofacial?
Photofacial treatment is a way of targeting and eliminating facial discoloration, redness, and facial veins. This non-invasive treatment is FDA-approved and proven effective at reducing the signs of aging. The best photofacial treatment candidates are in overall good health and have realistic expectations. Photofacial treatment is an outpatient procedure that takes less than one hour to complete and requires no anesthesia. Although there will be noticeable improvements even after just one photofacial treatment, multiple treatments will achieve optimal results. The patient may have some redness and swelling, which will feel similar to a sunburn for a few hours or so after the treatment. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Benefits of Photofacial Treatments
Photofacial treatments can improve the signs of aging and sun damage. This procedure effectively treats and improves the appearance of age spots, sun spots, acne scars, spider veins, dilated capillaries, rosacea, birthmarks, fine lines, texture problems, and other skin imperfections and signs of aging. You’ll leave the facility with youthful, glowing skin and a renewed sense of confidence about your appearance that will eliminate any former desire to shy away from close-ups or selfies!
