Fotofacial Skin Rejuvenation

A fotofacial is a skin treatment using some light based technologies. These types of facials have many different uses but are more commonly used to boost your collagen levels in you skin as well as treat some skin conditions such as broken capillaries, acne and dark skin spots.

There are two types of technology that is used for fotofacial skin treatments. These are LED and IPL, or light-emitting diode and intense-pulsed light. Though they are used in common procedures, that are very different and it is important to know the difference between the two to get the type of results that you want to achieve. The IPL technology uses intense light to gradually lighten the skin where dark spots may be. The LED treatment uses a gentle narrow spectrum of light to help boost collagen and also is used to kill the bacteria that can cause acne. Both treatments are minimally invasive and are not very painful but can sometimes be uncomfortable to receive.

Most people think that these treatments are only for use on the face, but can actually be used on various parts of your body. The face and the upper area on the chest are the most common areas treated, though. These procedures usually require a few treatments before the desired results are achieved. Because no surgery or incisions are made, this is a great option for many people.

Though treatments of any kind have some sort of risk, Austin fotofacial skin treatments are generally safe. It is very important to speak with a dermatologist to determine which treatment options are best for you and for you to be able to ask any questions that you might have regarding the procedure, the risks as well as the benefits. Overall, these treatments are a great way to improve your skin’s appearance and enhance the overall texture and firmness of the skin giving you a healthier and more youthful look and feel.
