Generally, how we look affects our confidence. If we look good, we feel confident. And to look good, we use cosmetics that promise skin lightening, anti aging, dark spots removal, skin tightening. But, we forget that every cosmetic is made for a specific skin type and might not suit your skin. A lot of clients who visit us for Photo facial agree with the fact that products who claim to improve your skin might not always be the best product for your skin type. Hence, it is important to know your skin type and we suggest that you do not try any kind of skin products without consulting your dermatologist. The effects of photo facial are not immediate but become visible within a few weeks of the treatment.
Fotofacial is another technique which uses Radio waves with intense pulse light. It works better than photo facial, though it is only recommended in severe cases. Therefore, it is advised that before undergoing any kind of facial treatments your dermatologist should know and inspect the problem thoroughly.
So, you must be thinking that it could be a solution to all your skin problems, which is not true. This treatment only heals a few skin conditions as mentioned earlier. People who have dark skin tone may not get the best benefits out of it. Also, if somebody is taking some kind of medication, it is not advisable to get this treatment done, not until it has been more than 6 months since they stopped taking that medicine. Pregnant women should also not undergo this process as it uses IPL and radio waves, which can be harmful for the baby.
Photo facial treatment is little painful and you need to take care of your skin after the treatment. Dermatologists recommend that you avoid going in sun at least for two weeks or apply a good amount of sunscreen lotion which your doctor prescribes. The results of a photo facial treatment can last as long as one year but you need to be very careful and follow the instructions of your dermatologist post treatment.
