Photofacials are quickly becoming a favorite of celebrities as an all-natural way to maintain a beautiful, youthful glow year-round.
Photofacials are a great and safe way to treat pigmentation, sun spots, rosacea, broken capillaries, uneven skin tone/complexion and rough skin texture. It has been shown that women with uneven skin complexions can look years older than they are even if they are not showing other signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Photorejuvenation (IPL – Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatments are most commonly used for:
The laser/IPL device emits a range of light waves that are then tuned and targeted, depending on the desired outcome, at hemoglobin (the red blood cells in the blood vessels) or melanin (the brown pigment in freckles and age spots). The light beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by either hemoglobin or melanin resulting in damage to the vessel wall or fragmenting of melanin pigment. These tiny vessels and the melanin pigment are then absorbed by the body, rendering them less visible.
IPL photofacials are very comfortable for the most part. A slight “zap” may be felt as the laser passes over dark pigmentation or blood vessels, however, at Beautique Med Spa we only use the most up to date technology that includes a handpiece chilled to -8 degrees Celsius to ensure the patient has the most comfortable experience possible. No numbing or Anesthesia is required.
