Photofacial, also known as photo rejuvenation, is a popular light-based technology skin treatment process that addresses a number of skin issues like age spots, sun damage, open pores, wrinkles, fine lines, and skin pigmentation. It is a common skincare treatment chosen by many celebrities and Hollywood actresses and is performed by skin care experts in medical spas, skin clinics, and holistic care centres.
The photofacial treatment in Patna provided at our clinic are two types, namely IPL (intense pulsed light) and LED (light emitting diode). The IPL treatment is targeted at deeper layers of the skin to treat a variety of common skin issues, starting from wrinkles, brown spots, spider veins, broken capillaries, and sun damage, which are a result of pollution, aging, excessive sun exposure, and other biological factors. The intense pulse penetrates the deeper layer of the skin without harming the top layer and rejuvenates the skin by enhancing the light absorption by the pigments like haemoglobin and melanin. It is suggested that the sessions be spaced at a minimum interval of 3 to 4 weeks depending on the skin condition and the goal of restoring the youthfulness of the skin.
The LED treatment is performed using a handheld device that emits various bands of LED light. The procedure is very simplistic and painless and aims to boost collagen production and results in plumper, younger looking skin. It also gets rid of the bacteria that causes acne. One can go for the LED photofacial as an add-on to the regular facial sessions for a brighter, plumper skin.
The different colours of LED work wonders on the skin as it targets different aspects. The Red Light is known to accelerate cell activity, boost collagen production, lighten blemishes, repair skin damage due to free radicals, reduce enlarged open pores, and tenderise skin wrinkles. The blue light targets inflammation and kills the acne-causing bacteria, removes the skin sores and repairs the skin. The Green Light helps in reducing excess skin oil secretion and balancing the skin hydration levels. It facilitates lymphatic drainage and detoxifies the skin. The Yellow Light improves cell oxygen exchange, reduces excess skin pigmentation, improves rough skin texture, reduces wrinkles and boosts skin immunity.
People who have uneven skin tone, rough blemished skin, blotchy and patchy skin, and enlarged skin pores should definitely consider photofacial treatment for effective results.Photofacial is a realistic skin treatment. Photofacial is a non-intrusive treatment that requires no downtime. The recovery time after the treatment is roughly a day or two. With the photofacial treatment in Patna done at our clinic, one can expect younger, plumper-looking skin without any discomfort.It is effective in treating face contours and skin imperfections near the face, chest, or neck. It can visibly improve the appearance of large pores and acne scars.
A single session of photofacial will roughly take an hour at maximum and is extremely cost-effective since the effect of the treatment lasts longer than other expensive skin-rejuvenating procedures.
During the procedure, the skin area to be treated is first cleaned with mild cleansers. The protective eye gear is provided to protect the eyes from the bright flashes of light. A cooling gel and numbing cream are applied thereafter to cool the epidermis and help manage any discomfort that may arise due to this treatment. The skin care expert then uses the handheld device to emit light pulses on the targeted area to address the skin issue. After the treatment, one may notice some redness, which vanishes within a day or two. Pre and post photofacial treatment, heavy cosmetics, scented soaps, and abrasive scrubs should be avoided.
Wrinkles, acne scars, and even blemishes are markedly reduced with photofacial therapy. It tightens your skin pores and improves the skin tone and texture. Photofacial is effective in treating rosacea (a typical enlarged facial blood vessel condition that causes redness), melasma (a very common skin problem of dark and discoloured patches on the skin) and broken capillaries. Using the photofacial treatment in Patna at our clinic hyperpigmentation, freckles, dark patches under the eyes, and sunspots are all common skin issues that can be easily treated.
After the photofacial treatment, one must avoid direct sun exposure or use heavy chemicals for a day or two for the effect of post-photofacial redness or mild swelling to go away. This treatment is not recommended before vacation since UV exposure might irritate the sensitive skin. Pregnant women should also avoid the treatment. Application of products containing glycolic acid, retinoic acid, and alpha-hydroxy acids after the photofacial treatment is strictly prohibited by skin experts. Rubbing or scratching the skin during the recovery period should be avoided. One can use a gentle cleanser twice a day to keep the skin fresh. Opting for mild skin moisturiser and gentle products is ideal post-photofacial. Heavy cosmetics and makeup can irritate the mild skin and cause redness and swelling within 2 to 3 days of the treatment. Aftercare is as essential as photofacial therapy itself, since the aftercare recovery phase is essentially a cooling period for the skin.
