*Terms and Conditions Applied
As the name suggests, Photofacials are light-based facial treatments used for pigmentation issues and skin blemishes.
Photofacials are easily done on any body part with an exception of eyelids and area above the eyes. These procedures should be performed by a medical professional.
Types of Photofacials Procedures
The two most common photo facial procedures are:-
- Intense pulsed light (IPL) or Pulsed light therapy
- Light emitting diode (LED).
IPL is done with a handheld device which emits pulses of broad spectrum light. These pulse of light when in direct contact with the skin, acts on the deeper layers. This makes IPL an ideal method to treat broken capillaries, heal sun damage and other impurities.
LED photo facials are done with handheld devices or lamps which emit a range of colors of the LED light. The color of the light influences the effects. For example, red light is the one that stimulates collagen production and treats fine lines and wrinkles. The blue light treats acne by killing bacteria that cause acne. Greenlight works by breaking up melanin for easier absorption. This thus lightens the skin.
LED photo facials act on the outer layer of skin or epidermis, making it the preferred procedure for treating surface blemishes like acne.
Who does LED facials?
LED facials are done at licensed medical facilities, spas and even at home. However, it is advisable to do this procedure under a qualified medical practitioner.
Mode of action of IPL Photofacial
The hemoglobin (red blood cells) and melanin (pigmentation) soak up the IPL photo facial light, intentionally damaging these areas. The melanin breaks upon damage and is absorbed by the skin. Thus the level of melanin is decreased on the skin’s surface, leading to a lighter shade skin. The hemoglobin on damage increases blood flow. This increased blood flow removes melanin more efficiently.
