Fotofacial is a revolutionary new skin youthening procedure that is available for those who wish to have younger looking skin. It’s reasonable to have questions about a dermatological procedure, which is why we’ve put together this guide to answer all of the questions you may have. Reading up on Fotofacial is a great way to learn more about it, however all those who are interested in this treatment should schedule an appointment with their dermatologist to discuss whether or not it is right for them.
How does best Fotofacial make your skin look younger?
Best Fotofacial involves using radiofrequency energy beams to selectively target blood vessels and pigment that is located underneath the surface of the skin. The wonderful thing about this technology is that it doesn’t touch any skin cells that are on top of the skin, on the outermost layer. This means that it causes the least amount of damage possible, all while removing or lightening sun spots, rosacea, brown spots and busted blood vessels.
Who would make a good candidate for a Fotofacial treatment?
Fotofacial treatments can help a wide variety of patients. Those who have discolored skin, whether from sun damage or a skin condition, people with large pores, and those who have skin that is poorly textured can all benefit from Fotofacial. The best way to determine if you would be a good candidate for best Fotofacial would be to have a consultation with your dermatologist.
Will I experience pain during the Fotofacial procedure?
Since it uses radiofrequency technology, best Fotofacial treatments should not cause discomfort, or should cause very minimal discomfort. A cooling, numbing gel will be added to the treatment area before the procedure, ensuring that the patient will feel only minimal discomfort.
How long does it take to see results?
3-5 Fotofacial treatments will be needed before a patient can visibly see results. All of the treatments are done at one month intervals to give the skin time to heal between appointments. Since this treatment is minimally invasive, patients do not typically need much downtime after the procedure is completed.
Will my results last a long time?
The amount of time your results will last depends on the amount of sun you expose your skin to. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the sun after your Fotofacial treatment, you will see a return of all of the discoloration that was removed by the procedure. (Which is why it’s so important to stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen!) If you take proper care of your skin, then you will see long-lasting results.
