The benefits of Fotofacial treatment

Fotofacial treatments is an innovative and effective way to revitalize your face without resorting to invasive procedures that require downtime. Your friends and family will be amazed and full of compliments once your skin and face is rejuvenated and appealing. Fotofacial, or Broadband light therapy is an advanced technology that allows dermatologists to revitalize their patients’ faces and skin without the need for surgery.

Our skin consists of three layers, and as we age, the top layers lose their cohesiveness, and elasticity. Even the bottom layer begins to detach from the supporting muscles beneath the skin. Gradually for some, and more quickly for others, our skin wrinkles and develops pigment issues. Fortunately, dermatologists have a number of therapies and procedures to treat these skin issues.

How it is used

Fotofacial treatments uses heat and intense light energy to pulse gently on the skin. The light and energy targets problem areas on the face, neck, back, chest, and hands. The treatments stimulate the production of your own collagen, and encourages the growth of new cells in the upper layer of skin, restoring some of its strength and elasticity. A skillful dermatologist can tell you if you are a candidate for Fotofacial therapy, and if you get started soon, you can have your face rejuvenated and healthy looking for the holiday season.

How it works

Your dermatologist will use Fotofacial therapy to heat up the upper layers of the skin. The heat is absorbed by the targeted areas, stimulating your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will:

  • Help restore your skin to its natural beauty
  • Blend your skin’s natural colors
  • Make you skin smoother, vibrant, and younger looking
  • Target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness
  • Reduce unwanted melanin, which is responsible for pigmented lesions

Your clinician may decide to use complimentary creams or medications that will improve skin tone and texture, resulting in a youthful bright face. He or she may also choose to use dermal fillers or laser therapy to minimize sagging skin.
