A photofacial, also referred to as an IPL (intense pulsed light) facial or a fotofacial, is a popular procedure that many people use to reduce the signs of aging and improve their skin’s overall appearance. At Simply Medspa, we are proud to provide our clients with high-quality photofacials that help them achieve younger-looking skin.
Photofacials utilize intense pulses of light in order to penetrate deep into the skin, targeting sun damage, age spots, wrinkles, and other common signs of aging. The process works by using light energy which is absorbed by the targeted areas of the skin while avoiding healthy cells nearby. This helps stimulate collagen production and gives the skin a more youthful and radiant appearance. Photofacials can be done on the face, neck, chest, and other areas of the body in order to eliminate any unwanted pigmentation or discoloration.
The process itself is quite simple. First, you will meet with one of our experienced technicians for a brief consultation at which time we will examine your skin and determine if photofacials are right for you. Once that’s been determined, we may apply a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort during the procedure and then begin administering short pulses of light to the affected areas. In some cases, multiple treatments may be necessary in order to achieve optimal results but typically most patients only need 1-3 treatments depending on their individual needs.
At Simply Medspa, we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible results through the use of photofacials. This procedure is perfect for individuals who want to reduce wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of aging without having to go through a surgical process. In addition to being non-invasive, it has been proven to be quite effective in achieving younger-looking skin and can even help improve skin tone and texture overall.
If you’re interested in learning more about how photofacials can help you achieve youthful looking skin or if you have any questions about the procedure itself, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Simply Medspa today!
