Everyone loves a flawless skin texture, appearance and looks. However, it gets hard to maintain the beauty and escape the wrath of blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines with aging skin. The damage to the skin not only reduces the charm of a person, but also end up hampering self-confidence.
The demand for beauty procedures, including invasive and non- invasive, has drastically increased in the last few years. For the same reason, several major technological advancements have taken place in the aesthetic industry and in the field of cosmetology to provide skin rejuvenation services to people.
One such latest technology in the field of cosmetology is intense pulsed technology (IPL). This technology uses different wavelengths of light to treat targeted skin conditions such as pigmentation, red and brown spots, blotches, wrinkles and spider veins. IPL therapy is alternatively known as photo rejuvenation, photofacial or facial rejuvenation.
Photofacial is a popular procedure conducted by Dr. Harmandeep Sidhu at Athena Skin & Laser Clinic in Chandigarh. Each year, thousands of people opt for this procedure for the treatment of facial redness and skin discoloration.
What type of skin problems can photofacial treat?
Photofacial using IPL therapy can help treat the following problems associated with the skin:
- Enlarged pores and acne
- Small blood vessels visible on the face
- Broken capillaries
- Sun spots
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Skin redness
Photofacial also helps stimulate collagen growth, which, in turn, results in skin texture improvement and cures minor dermal injuries.
What happens during photofacial?
A photo facial is a half-an hour procedure in which intense pulses of light are allowed to penetrate deep into the skin causing stimulation of collagen production and blood vessel constriction. This helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles and redness. The skin becomes healthier and smoother giving a youthful appearance to the skin.
What are the advantages of photofacial treatment?
People with busy schedules who suffer from skin problems such as enlarged pores, wrinkles, sun tan, discolored and blotchy skin often opt for a skin therapy that can clear out their skin without any down time. Photofacial is one such skin therapy which is convenient, less painful and enables people return back to their normal routine almost immediately.
In addition, photofacial is completely non-invasive and painless procedure that results in minimal discomfort as compared to their procedures.
How much does photofacial treatment cost?
This treatment is economical and affordable as compared to most cosmetic surgery and laser skin treatment. However, it is a bit costlier than treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peel.
The cost photofacial treatment depends upon:
- The area of skin being treated
- Experience of the professional
- The medical facility or clinic
- Number of treatments required
- Severity of the condition
How many sittings are required to see effective results?
Effective results can only be achieved in multiple sittings, ranging between 3 and 5. In addition, some maintenance treatments are also required once or twice in a year. These treatments should be backed with a daily skin care regime that is developed based on advice given by the doctor at the cosmetic clinic.
