If you are ready to reverse sun damage and reclaim a youthful, glowing complexion, a photofacial in Houston may be the skin rejuvenation you need. Brown spots, broken capillaries, redness, and other signs of sun damage do not have to be an inevitable part of the aging process. Photofacials use Broadband Light to repair pigmentation irregularities caused by too much sun and reveal a brighter, revitalized complexion with minimal to no downtime.
A photofacial, or fotofacial, also known as photorejuvenation, is a treatment touted to reverse sun damage, even out facial color, as well as improve tone and texture in the process. In other words, photofacial treatments reportedly: tighten pores and reduce the severity of acne.
Revitalizing BBL photofacial is also used to turn back time on your skin with the Forever Young BBL™ photofacial in Houston. Forever Young BBL is a specially designed type of photofacial that combines a specific BBL intensity and pattern of treatment with skin tightening to reveal dramatically younger-looking skin. Forever Young BBL is clinically proven to change the molecular structure of your skin cells to behave like younger skin cells. A Stamford University study showed that patients who received periodic Forever Young photofacials over the long term had skin that appeared to be up to 10 years younger than its actual age. Call now to learn more about your photofacial options.
Photofacials use precisely targeted laser energy to penetrate your skin’s outer layer, stimulating new collagen and elastin growth for a wide range of benefits. Photofacials help your skin to renew itself, revealing a refreshed and more evenly-toned complexion.
The Forever Young BBL photofacial was invented by Dr. Patrick Bitter, a renowned board-certified dermatologist. This age-defying treatment involves applying the BBL light to your skin numerous times, or with numerous passes, to intensely stimulate your skin. The intensity of the Forever Young BBL treatment is quite comfortable. Forever Young BBL also administers SkinTyte™ infrared energy to help improve the texture and tightness of your skin.
Our photofacial will last for approximately 30 minutes.
You will begin to see results from your photofacial in the days following your treatment as your dark spots and freckles darken before gradually turning into a coffee grind-like texture and sloughing off.
Patients sometimes compare a photofacial to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. This sensation is not constant and will end as soon as the treatment is over. Depending on your skin type, you may also feel a slight sunburn sensation after your treatment, which will subside in the hours after treatment.
Your side effects will depend on your unique skin concerns. If you are correcting pigmentation irregularities, such as age spots, brown spots, or freckles, your dark spots will darken and turn into a coffee-grind-like texture before gradually sloughing off within a week. Some people experience minor redness for a few hours to a day.
Photofacials are non-invasive treatments with little to no downtime. The most important thing to remember after your treatment is to avoid the sun for several days and to always use sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
We recommend periodic or seasonal photofacials to help maintain your skin’s optimal health and vibrancy.
