If your skin has imperfections including pigmentation problems, blotchy skin tone, and poor texture, you may benefit from a procedure available at the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas called the fotofacial. A fotofacial, sometimes referred to as photo rejuvenation, is a treatment provided by Dr. Rachel Walker to enhance the skin’s texture and tone while ensuring a smooth, youthful, and healthier appearance. Fotofacials are a wonderful option for individuals who want to combat sun exposure, fine lines and wrinkles, and even reduce active acne in one powerful treatment.
What is a fotofacial?
Fotofacials are treatments that utilize IPL, or “intense pulsed light” to penetrate deep into the skin to improve it. These treatments are performed right in our practice under the care of our experienced and highly trained team of professionals for safety and efficiency. This light can help patients who want to treat a myriad of issues, including:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Large pore sizes
- Visible blood vessels
- Brown/sun spots
- Redness of the skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Active acne
What can I expect during my fotofacial treatment?
The fotofacial treatment performed at our practice is done to achieve noticeable rejuvenation of the skin’s appearance. It may take several treatment sessions to obtain the desired results, and this is discussed thoroughly before starting the procedure. Fotofacials deliver pulses of light that often results in a “snapping” sound, and there may be mild discomfort. Most patients find that the discomfort is well-tolerated while others may request a topical anesthesia to reduce the sensation of the light bursts. The entire area is treated using the IPL device, and patients are given aftercare instructions to follow until their next appointment, often scheduled weeks apart. The results of treatment are gradual, but highly noticeable after several sessions have been performed.
