You may have been considering a skincare treatment procedure to help revitalize the look and feel of your skin. Whether dealing with the effects of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, or several other skin issues or just wanting to firm and strengthen your skin to keep it healthy and vibrant, a skin rejuvenation/FotoFacial treatment could be exactly what you need.
Photorejuvenation procedures are the latest advancement in modern dermatology and they let you transform red or blotchy skin into healthy vibrant skin that is more radiant and firmer.
Let’s take a look at how this treatment works and how it can improve the look of your skin in ways that are gentle yet effective.
So What Exactly Is A Skin Rejuvenation/FotoFacial Treatment?
FotoFacial treatment is a quick procedure with very minimal discomfort and fast recovery time. The procedure itself involves a series of intense light pulses that deeply penetrate into the skin and combines them with radio frequency pulses. This then causes a reaction within the skin that makes the collagen and blood vessels below the skin to constrict. This can drastically reduce the appearance of redness, age lines, and wrinkles. The light pulses and radio frequencies break down areas of UV damage and destroy damaged skin cells and allow for new healthy skin. This is delivered with the Eclipse Micropen San Antonio.
This method of stimulating the body’s natural healing responses to encourage your skin to rejuvenate itself is a new take on other skincare treatments such as microdermabrasion. With a skin rejuvenation/FotoFacial treatment, the source of stimulation is an intense penetrating light pulse and is combined with radio waves delivered into the skin.
Treatments typically last about 30 minutes. Most benefits are seen most strongly in the weeks after your treatments. They are usually delivered in a series of 3 to 6 appointments but spaced out over about 18 weeks.
What Can You Treat With A Skin Rejuvenation/FotoFacial?
FotoFacial treatments offer relief from redness, blotchy skin, sun damage, enlarged pores, age spots, blemishes, fine lines, and freckling. Rosacea and acne scarring can also be treated with the Eclipse Micropen San Antonio.
How Can You Tell If This Is The Right Option For You?
Ideal candidates are those with untanned skin, that still retains some of its elasticity. There are limits to the effects and those with more severe facial scarring or deeper facial lines may want to consider a more aggressive treatment option. Those with deeply tanned skin can sometimes experience complications and you should discuss your specific treatment with a trained and certified dermatologist before booking your treatments. Those with a darker skin tone should discuss possible complications and alterations in skin pigmentation. Those who have undergone acne treatment using the medication Accutane® should not use these treatments for at least 6 months after they cease taking this medication. Additionally, pregnant women should refrain until after they have given birth.
