When it comes to facials, there are many variations that can involve different ingredients and techniques to treat your skin. But have you heard about having your skin improved through the use of light? With a Scottsdale photofacial, you can benefit from light-based technology designed to boost collagen or treat a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, pigmentations, large pores, age spots, and wrinkles. Types Photofacials can be administered using two different types of light technology: LED or IPL. Though your technician should be able to work with you to figure out which treatment is best for you, it’s worthwhile to know a bit about the differences between these two forms of light technology. LED (light emitting diode) is primarily used to boost collagen production and generally results in plumper, younger-looking skin. It can also be an effective acne treatment because it can kill breakout-causing bacteria. This type of Scottsdale photofacial is painless and can be used in a relaxing setting, though results are generally best after multiple treatments. Many patients champion LED photofacials because they can significantly improve the appearance of the skin when used in conjunction with other skincare treatments, including microdermabrasion or chemical peels, particularly if you are looking for an effective anti-aging treatment. IPL (intense-pulsed light) photofacials are generally used in medical spas because this type of Scottsdale photofacial can treat a variety of skin conditions, including rosacea, facial redness, brown spots, and broken capillaries. IPL photofacial treatments can be tailored to meet your individual skincare needs, resulting in superior cosmetic results and outstanding patient satisfaction. During this treatment, the tip of the IPL device delivers a warm flash of bright light energy to about one square inch of skin. The flash lasts for about one second and is delivered every two to four seconds as an intense light pulse, destroying unsightly spider veins, bacteria and other microorganisms, and damaged skin cells. Studies also show that IPL treatments heat the outer layer of skin to above 65 degrees Celsius, which activates the skin to produce more winkle-filling collagen over the course of 12 weeks. What can I Expect? After a Scottsdale photofacial treatment, many patients experience reddened skin that generally subsides on its own after a few hours or about a day. The benefits of your Scottsdale photofacial treatment will begin to become apparent gradually in the weeks following your treatment, with some patients reporting an improvement in their skin in as little as two weeks following treatment. You can expect little to no down time and, with the right amount of sun protection, you can resume regular activities immediately.
