A Photo-facial treatment can treat a wide variety of skin problems as it penetrates slightly deeper into the layers of the skin and stimulates collagen growth by stimulating minor dermal injuries, thereby helping to improve skin texture.
Reduction of Telangiectasis – these are tiny blood vessels that have enlarged and appear as threadlike red lines .These are commonly seen on sun-exposed areas such as lips, nose, eyes and cheeks and are especially visible on fair skin.
Skin lightening by breaking down the melanin on the skin’s surface. This will give you an instant lighter look
Pore tightening, by stimulating the skin’s natural collagen production, particularly useful on oily skin
Active acne helps kill the bacteria on the skin that leads to acne
Painless and no downtime
One treatment is usually sufficient however best results are achieved with several sessions spaced three weeks apart.
Photo-facial refers to facial treatments based upon a common principle: heating and stimulating the dermis (the inner layer of the skin) while cooling and protecting the epidermis (the outer layer). There are a wide variety of technologies and procedures available for this type of treatment, however, and each works in a slightly different way.
EDEN's Photo-facial skin procedure involves the use of an intense beam of broad-spectrum light (as opposed to lasers, which operate within a very specific wavelength) that targets the dermis, the lower layer of the skin. The procedure simultaneously removes damaged and photo-aged skin while stimulating collagen growth. IPL Photo-facial therapy can improve the color, consistency, and texture of the skin all at once.
The heat generated by light causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a Photo-facial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment.
People who have blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored skin, or whose skin is affected by large pores, freckles, or wrinkles, may benefit from a Photo-facial.
The Photo-facial is non-ablative, meaning no skin is removed during the procedure. The procedure is also quick and involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules. Those with dark or deeply tanned skin sometimes experience complications following Photo-facial treatment. Patients should discuss such issues with a trained dermatologist before undergoing treatment.
People with white, untanned skin that is still somewhat elastic are the best candidates for a photofacial. It is also important for patients to have a realistic understanding about what the procedure can do. When performed on the right person, it effectively improves skin texture, eliminating discolorations, reducing pore size, and minimizing wrinkles and fine lines. If you have rosacea, a condition that causes blotchy redness in the face, you may also benefit from a photofacial. With each treatment, the results of photofacial become more pronounced. Three full-face photofacial sessions spaced three weeks apart are normally required for optimal results.
Depending on the skin malady you are seeking to remedy as well as your skin type, the redness that is present following the procedure may persist for a longer or shorter period of time.
LONG LASTING RESULTS
Intense pulsed light therapy can give you excellent results for a year or more, but you must take care to ensure your skin is protected for the first few weeks after treatment. It is crucial to avoid the sun completely for at least several days following your treatment and to wear plenty of sunblock for at least two weeks.
