Photofacial treatment is an effective skin rejuvenation procedure that uses intense pulses of light to treat various skin conditions like Acne & Acne Scars, Sun spots, Freckles, Broken capillaries, Rosacea, Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, Open pores, Flushing, Dark circles under eyes, etc.

How does Photofacial work?

During this non-ablative skin rejuvenation treatment for sun damaged skin, a laser/IPL (Intense Pulse Light) device is used that emits a range of light waves at the targeted skin region. The light beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by hemoglobin (red blood cells) or melanin (brown pigment in freckles and age spots), 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, making them less visible. The IPL light also boosts the production of collagen which results in a smoother and elegant skin.

What happens during the treatment?

You are asked to wear protective eyewear before the procedure begins to make it safe and effective. A cool gel is applied on the area to be treated, so as to lubricate the handpiece and cool the epidermis during this laser therapy. The doctor will apply short pulses of bright light to the targeted skin through the handpiece. This will give you the feel of a warm sensation. Some feel it like a light “snap” from a rubber band.

What happens after this procedure?

Photofacial laser therapy is an instant treatment and does not have any downtime. The procedure involves minimal discomfort, with temporary side effects like redness, crusting, small superficial blisters & swelling. Just after the treatment, sun damage spots and age spots get somewhat darken, but flake off and fade after some time, leaving a clear & glowing skin behind.

You can observe some prominent difference in your face & skin with each sitting of IPL Photofacial laser treatment, but the overall results can be seen after 3-5 months of the whole.

How many sessions are required?

The number of sessions required depends on the skin condition and the desired results. Usually 3-5 Photofacial laser treatments are given to people with age spots.

Who can get Photofacial treatment?

You are the right candidate for Photofacial laser therapy, if:

  • You have sun-damaged or discolored skin,
  • You are suffering from Rosacea,
  • Your skin is affected by large pores, freckles or wrinkles
  • You are not pregnant.
  • You are not taking the medication Accutane® for at least six months.

Is it same as Laser Resurfacing treatment?

Some people think IPL Photofacial and Laser skin resurfacing is same, but it is not so. Unlike laser resurfacing, IPL Photofacial laser treatment does not involve removing extremely fine skin layers to get fresh & glowing skin. Moreover, the laser skin resurfacing involves a longer recovery time than the IPL laser therapy.
