Improve your skin with Photofacials in Cleveland
For many years, laser technology has helped patients visibly reduce the signs of aging and improve certain skin conditions. Dermatology, like many other medical fields, is continually advancing. Technology advancements have paved the way for treatments that are similar to laser therapies, but with fewer side effects and no discomfort. Photfacial treatments use intense pulsed light to improve skin conditions.
Broadband light (BBL) photofacial is effective at treating a variety of skin issues, including:
- Age spots
- Sun pots
- Spider veins
- Lines and wrinkles
Photofacial treatments are more gentle than laser treatments of the past and do not require down time like deep chemical peels. They work by using light energy to heat the outermost layer of skin. This helps stimulate collagen growth and regeneration which can improve skin texture and tone. Patients will end up with skin that looks more youthful and radiant for months after their treatment.
BBL photofacials can be used on nearly anywhere on the body. The most commonly treated areas are those that are exposed most to sunlight including the face, neck, hands, arms, and shoulders. Several sessions are typically required for maximum results. Many patients will end up with around five sessions scheduled every 3 to 4 weeks apart. Each session is about an hour.
Photofacial treatments are non-invasive but may have some minor side effects such as mild redness. This will typically go away quickly, but can always be covered with makeup. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after BBL photofacials, so it is very important to avoid sun exposure at peak times and apply plenty of sunscreen. Patients who receive photofacials for pigmentation issues may notices that the areas darken before they fade away, this is completely normal.
