January is a great month to get started on this non-invasive treatment because you need to spend limited time in the sun between appointments (which is easy to do on the west coast!). Photofacials, or photorejuvenation, uses light technology that minimizes brown spots, sun damage, fine wrinkles, and enlarged pores. It significantly improves redness caused by rosacea and acne scarring while simultaneously smoothing skin’s texture. Plus photorejuvenation significantly reduces signs of aging. In fact, a study conducted at Stanford University proved that BBL light therapy can change the structure of DNA and actually reverse the signs of aging!
That’s what makes this treatment so unique; it not only erases skin damage, but it also improves your skin tone and overall feel.
An individual treatment takes about 15 minutes and usually requires four to six treatments in three-week increments. When you arrive, our medical estheticians will apply a cool gel to the surface of your skin and then move the light therapy device across the treatment area. Most people compare it to a warming sensation, like a light snap of a rubber band. The best part is that you can pop in on your lunch break and then get back to your busy day immediately after the treatment.
Many patients who suffer from acne have turned to photofacials and experienced incredible results. From mild to severe, BBL phototherapy can significantly reduce the redness associated with moderate and cystic conditions.
