Understanding Fotofacial treatment
Fotofacial treatments are utilized to reduce or diminish fine lines and wrinkles using broadband light technology. It also helps to repair skin that has been damaged by active lifestyle, harmful habits such as smoking, and from excessive exposure to the sun. This therapy is used by dermatologists to treat wrinkles, age spots, small facial veins, and several other skin blemishes with accurate precision. One of its most important functions is that Fotofacial treatments stimulate new collagen, which gives your skin strength; and elastin, which enables your skin to stretch and bounce back. Patients who have received Fotofacial treatment notice a brighter face, diminished red lines, and a more even skin tone within a few weeks of treatment.
Before the procedure
We highly recommend that you consult with a board-certified dermatologist. She or he will review your medical history and conduct a comprehensive physical exam. The next step is to thoroughly discuss realistic expectations, the potential risks, and expected outcomes of the procedure with your dermatologist. Once you decide to undergo Broad Band Light therapy, it is important to take care to avoid sunbathing, tanning beds, body waxing, chemical peels, or any other skin treatments for at least two weeks prior to the procedure. You will need to discontinue the use of aspirin, anti-coagulants, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements to decrease your risk of bleeding. Fotofacial therapy is an ideal procedure for the treatment of the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Facial redness
- Injury scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Unwanted hair
After the procedure
You should not expect see any significant changes until weeks after the procedure. For the first four to eight hours after your procedure, it is normal to experience a slight stinging sensation accompanied with redness. If this is your experience, the affected areas can be soothed and relieved by application of cool packs or moist cloths. Your dermatologist may recommend that you apply a moisturizing lotion to the treated area twice daily, for at least three months after the final treatment.
