A Beginners Guide to Photo Facials
Want flawless looking skin? You aren’t alone! Every day at our Dee Why clinic, we hear from men and women who are looking to create a more even skin tone and turn back the clock. More than just a dream, this beautiful look can be achieved with a photo facial.
Photo facials use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat sun damage, age spots and rosacea to make your skin look radiant and youthful on your face, neck, shoulders, décolletage, back and hands.
Are you looking to rejuvenate your look? Here is everything that you need to know about photo facials, also known as photo rejuvenation.
What Is a Photo Facial?
Using IPL, a photo facial targets red and brown spots of discolouration. Different wavelengths are used to target different pigmentation, making it an equally effective for hemoglobin-caused redness or melanin-induced sun damage.
What Does a Photo Facial Do?
A photo facial can be a great choice for a range of different skin types. Your customisable facial can restore volume, reduce broken capillaries, fade brown spots, and get rid of facial redness.
Want to fix broken capillaries, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage, vascular lesions, or an uneven skin tone? There’s a photo facial treatment for you.
What’s It Like to Get a Photo Facial?
When you arrive at our Medispa Institute in Dee Why, you’ll lie back in a chair to relax. Our skincare professional will use the handheld IPL device to treat targeted areas. You’ll feel a mild sensation as the light therapy goes to work.
Unlike a laser, IPL systems have a larger treatment window for quicker coverage and shorter sessions.
During the photo facial treatment, the pigmented cells of your treatment area will absorb the light as heat. This heat will destroy damaged cells, which will push your body’s natural healing system into overdrive. After a few days, these dead skins will slough off. After around ten to 14 days, you’ll see the full results.
If you are ready to transform your skin, talk to us! In addition to photo facials, there are countless options that can treat any and every type of skin issue. At the Medispa Institute in Dee Why, we offer professional skin assessments.
