Photofacials: Why an Even Skin Tone Is the New ‘Youthful Glow’

If you asked someone to make a list of things that make a person look older, wrinkles would probably be at the top of that list. However, a 2006 study showed that a person’s skin tone has such an impact on perceived age that it can add or remove up to 20 years from their appearance.

Hyperpigmentation, more commonly known as ‘age spots’ or ‘sun spots,’ is the main cause of an uneven skin tone. It occurs when the sun’s UV rays trigger the body’s cells to produce excess melanin, the pigment responsible for freckles and age spots.

What Is a Photofacial?

A Photofacial is a noninvasive procedure that uses Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, to target those excess melanin deposits, breaking them up and allowing the skin’s natural shedding process to slough them away.

What Issues Can Photofacials Treat?

Photofacials aren’t just for hyperpigmentation. They can also help reduce the appearance of:

– Broken capillaries: Sometimes referred to as ‘spider veins,’ these are the tiny blood vessels that appear near the surface of the skin.

– Redness: A number of things can be responsible for facial redness, including scars, acne, lupus, and hormonal changes.

– Rosacea: This is a redness of the face that, if left untreated, can cause broken capillaries and pimples and can even affect the eyes.

Are Photofacials Only for Use on the Face?

Although the treatment is called a ‘Photofacial,’ the procedure can also be performed on the neck, chest, and backs of hands.

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

The most common sensation felt during a treatment is a mild stinging similar to the snapping of a small rubber band against the skin. There may be a slight pinkness to your skin immediately following a treatment, but it can easily be covered with makeup. The procedure takes mere minutes, and with no downtime, you can immediately return to your daily activities.

Facelift Client

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Doctor explaining what he was going to do before the procedure step by step and also how I was going to feel after the procedure overall was a good experience. I cant express enough how amazing my results look and how much confidence I have gained.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
