What To Expect From A Photofacial
A photofacial or IPL, is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. Photofacial then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment
DAY OF THE PROCEDURE
Before the procedure begins, make sure your skin is free of any tanning products or makeup. Avoid prolong sun exposure and any topical retinoids. Your skin will be cleansed and a cool gel will be applied to the treatment area, both to lubricate the handpiece and cool the skin. You will be given eye protection to protect your eyes from the bright flashes of light.
DURING THE PROCEDURE
During the IPL/photofacial procedure, you will feel a warm sensation caused by the handpiece. Some patients describe the sensation to a light “snap” from a rubber band. The number of pulses you receive will depend on the size of the area being treated. Following the procedure, your skin care specialist may help you in icing down the treatment area to help soothe any discomfort from the procedure. This is often unnecessary, however, as IPL/photofacial treatment causes very little pain.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
The recovery time from an IPL skin procedure is often very short, as there is very little damage done to the skin during treatment. Depending on the skin condition you are seeking to remedy as well as your skin type, the redness that is present following the procedure may persist for a longer or shorter period of time. The side effects of IPL/photofacial treatment dissipate within a few hours for many patients. For some patients, however, the redness or dark spots may take a week to fade. Patients treated for severe acne sometimes experience longer recovery times, though they are often amazed by the results when the side effects wear off.

So we’ve all heard of Microdermabrasion , it has been around for many years. Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliation for the skin improving texture and tone. Now we’re hearing a lot of buzz about the Hydrafacial. It is a more advanced version sometimes referred to as ‘Wet Microdermabrasion’ treatment. This treatment is a new type of facial that provides deep pore cleansing, exfoliation of dead skin cells, extraction and skin hydration all at once. Unlike regular microdermabrasion, it can be done on all skin types, including very sensitive ones, and does not cause any redness. It’s especially great for rosacea and skin types with broken capillaries.
Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. The HydraFacial MD is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment that also decreases inflammation which is another leading cause of skin disorders.
The unique Vortex-Fusion serum delivery system is what sets the HydraFacial MD apart from the Microdermabrasion. The multi-step treatment cleanses, evenly exfoliates and extracts to remove impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishing vital nutrients including Antioxidants, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid. Thanks to the devices’ superior delivery system, these performing ingredients are able to more effectively help improve environmental damage, reduce fine lines & wrinkles, and plump & firm skin for long-term results you can see and feel instantly. Microdermabrasion simply uses suction to help clean out pores but does not infuse the skin with these beneficial ingredients.
Also unlike the Microdermabrasion the HydraFacial MD can be tailored to safely & effectively address your specific  skin concerns. The targeted problem/solution protocols were developed to help mitigate some of the most universal skin concerns,  but your trained HydraFacial MD professional can always further tailor your treatment to make it most exacting to your unique needs.  Your skin isn’t like everyone else’s and your treatment shouldn’t have to be either.
