The effects of skin damage and aging affect all layers of the skin. Photofacials can work to repair this damage and restore all layers of the skin by using specialized technology that targets the skin’s deeper layers and fixes skin problems from the inside-out. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacials work by using a device that emits a powerful source of light which targets the middle layer of the skin. By controlling the way the light is emitted, providers can avoid damage to the top, visible layer of skin while still targeting the source of many common skin issues. Your practitioner can filter the wavelength of the light emitted onto the skin to treat different issues more effectively.
Photofacials Chicago can be used to treat a wide variety of skin issues in different areas including the face, neck, back, hands, legs, and chest. Patients suffering from issues such as age spots, sun spots, spider veins, redness, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea can benefit from the procedure.
Other benefits of the treatment include increased collagen production, tightening of the skin, and renewed skin texture and tone, as the procedure works to repair the underlying causes of damage and degeneration.
During the procedure, one of our staff members will apply a gel to the area that you are getting treated and will use a special device to pulsate waves of light into the deeper layers of the skin. During the procedure, your practitioner will provide you with goggles to protect your eyes from the light source. Procedures take as little as twenty minutes and require little aftercare. Many patients report that the procedure is painless and have compared the experience to a warming sensation across the area being treated.
No. Unlike other skin rejuvenating procedures, photofacials Chicago is noninvasive, as the process does not require any incisions or injections. Many patients are able to return to work or go out immediately after the procedure. Potential side effects of the treatment can include swelling, increased sensitivity, redness, and temporary discomfort or discoloration, but these symptoms generally resolve themselves within a few hours. Compared to other options like chemical peels or laser resurfacing procedures, photofacials do not have as many uncomfortable side effects and they can lessen recovery time.
Because photofacials target the middle layer of skin, patients can expect to see results within three to nine weeks following the procedure, depending on your skin type and the treated area. Patients will see the best results after four to six photofacials and can undergo treatment every four weeks. Many patients undergo repeated procedures until they attain their desired results and then do the procedure once a year as upkeep.
