Photo facial is an advancement on regular facial. Sometimes it is also called photorejuvenation. It is a skin treatment procedure. It focuses on reducing age spots, freckles, and red blemishes or broken capillaries. Photo facial over a period of time reduces these effects of UV damage on your skin.
While IPL™ photorejuvenation is generally more costly than procedures like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, it is less expensive than most cosmetic surgery and laser skin treatment. Still, the price for a single photofacial/fotofacial session can be as high as $500 or $600.
The effects lasts a few years. There are usually 5-8 treatments which take between 15 minutes to 30 minutes to complete. They span out one treatment every 3 weeks or so depending on what treatment that you get. This varies depending on what you are going in for and the extent of the condition that you have.
Photofacials are safe for all skin types and complexions. The IPL process, or intense pulsed light therapy, works to zap fine lines and wrinkles, and minimize hyperpigmentation, acne, large pores, and vascular lesions like broken capillaries to improve a patient’s appearance.
