As a woman, you would typically opt for a skin care treatment that is easier and gentler on your skin than more aggressive ones. More woman are likely to choose a photofacial over an intensive chemical peel such as a Trichloroacetic acid peel (TCA). Although highly effective, a deep chemical peel requires some downtime for post-treatment recuperation which can take a number of days. The beauty of a photofacial is that it is equally effective for less severe conditions and there is virtually no downtime. You do not have to take time off and can usually return to work the same day.
What is a Photofacial?
A photofacial treatment, also called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is a procedure that uses a laser beam of high intensity and multiple wavelengths. This light works to remove excess skin pigmentation such as brown spots and vascular lesions resulting from broken capillaries in your facial skin.
Where do these Brown Spots and Broken Capillaries come from?
Ultraviolet rays are harmful to the skin. To protect itself, the skin produces excess pigmentation which over time, turns the skin darker in localized areas. The sun also damages the blood capillaries directly exposed to it. New capillaries are subsequently regenerated to replace the broken ones. A photofacial is the best-placed skin treatment procedure to treat these two conditions.
