As we age and our skin is exposed to the sun, it can very easily result in the skin being damaged and developing sun spots amongst other things. There are many ways to combat the common signs of aging and sun damage on the face. These include creams, lotions, injectable treatments and surgery. Although these treatments can be very effective, an increasingly popular way to rejuvenate the skin on the face is by getting a photofacial.
A photofacial is a type of laser treatment where pulsed light is used to treat the skin to improve the overall skin tone.

The benefits of a photofacial

  • Get younger looking skin –
    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacials can be used to treat fine lines around the eyes and mouth as well as improving the tone of the skin. This results in a more naturally youthful appearance and means photofacials are a great alternative to treatments such as Botox.
  • Treat a number of common skin conditions –
    Photofacials are often used to generally improve the tone of the skin but they are very effective at treating common skin issues, such as brown spots, dark circles under the eyes, mild acne scars and rosacea. If you have one or more of these skin complaints then a photofacial could be the perfect way to get rid of them.
  • Non-invasive treatment –
    A photofacial is a non-invasive treatment, meaning no incisions are made in your body. This is very beneficial since it means that there is no downtime and that you will not be left with any scars, as is the case with surgical options.
