What is Photofacial Treatment?

What is Photofacial Treatment

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished you could get rid of sunspots, freckles, or redness on your skin? You’re not alone! Many people have problems with their skin that make them feel bad about themselves and look bad overall. 

But there’s good news: there is a way to fix this problem. It’s called photofacial treatment. Today, Revive Med Aesthetics is here to help you understand what Photofacial Treatment is all about. 

What is PhotoFacial Treatment?

Photofacial treatment, also called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, is a non-invasive method of skin rejuvenation that uses a special light to target and fix different skin problems. 

Photofacial treatment can help fix many skin problems, from sunspots and freckles to redness and broken blood vessels. It’s very effective if you wish to improve your skin and look young again. But how does it work? 

How Does This The Treatment Work?

In General, during a photofacial, a special kind of light is used to target the pigments and blood vessels in the skin that make it look bad. The stains and blood vessels take in the light energy, which breaks them down so the body can take them in. 

The treatment also helps the body make more collagen, which can help make the skin look and feel better overall. Talk to your provider to understand how it works and what plan is best for you.

Photofacial at Revive Med Aesthetics

At Revive, we use the top-of-the-line Alexandrite laser in the Gentle Max Pro or Lumecca IPL to give our clients the best results possible from their photo facials! Among the benefits of this treatment are the following:

  • Eliminates brown spots caused by the sun
  • Removes Freckes 
  • Get rid of the age spots
  • Targets Fine lines/Wrinkles
  • Eliminates Bigger Pores

How We Work PhotoFacial at Revive Med Aesthetics

The laser can treat sun damage, age spots, and freckles. It makes the unwanted pigment hotter, which helps to break it apart. At Revive Med Aesthetics, depending on the size of the areas that need to be treated, a photofacial can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. 

There is no downtime with this treatment. But the broken melanin will rise to the surface of the skin. Giving the skin’s surface the look of coffee grounds or pepper. 

Your body’s “cleaning” system removes the small pieces of pigmented melanin and removes them. This can be covered up easily with a foundation. The face, chest, backs of the hands, arms, tops of the shoulders, and back are often targeted.

Best Advantages To Get For a PhotoFacial Treatment

Like most treatments, there are many valid reasons to try PhotoFacial. Here are those that you can expect. 

Reduced Appearance of Pigment Imperfections 

Photofacial treatment can help reduce the look of sunspots, freckles, and other pigment imperfections by targeting the pigments in the skin that cause these problems. Again, 

Photofacial treatments use a special kind of light energy absorbed by the pigments.

This breaks them up so that the body can take them in naturally. This can help make the skin look better and even out its tone.

You can also use this treatment for the redness and broken capillaries to look better by targeting the blood vessels in the skin that cause them. The light energy is taken in by the blood vessels, which breaks them down so they can be taken in by the body on their own. 

Stimulated Collagen Production

Photofacial treatment also helps the skin make more collagen, which can help improve the texture and look of the skin as a whole. Collagen is an essential protein that gives structure and elasticity to the skin and keeps it looking firm and young. 

Non-invasive and Convenient

Unlike other treatments for skin rejuvenation, photofacial treatment is non-invasive. It doesn’t require downtime, making it a good choice for busy people. The treatment is done in the doctor’s office and usually only takes 30–60 minutes to finish. After that, you can go back to your routine right away.

Safe and Effective

Getting a photofacial is a safe and effective way to improve the look of your skin, with very few side effects. It uses a special kind of light that is carefully set up to ensure it is safe on the skin. 

The treatment is done by highly trained people with a lot of experience. Also, photofacial treatment has been studied extensively. It is a very effective way to fix the look of many different skin problems.


There are instances in that photofacial treatment can be changed to meet the needs and goals of each person. This makes it possible to create a treatment plan that works best for each person. 

Photofacial treatment can also be customized to fit your needs and goals, whether you want to get rid of sunspots, freckles, redness, or broken blood vessels.

In the end, photofacial treatment is a very effective and non-invasive way for people to improve the way their skin looks. It is a great way to get smooth, glowing skin because it reduces the look of pigmented flaws.

Photofacial also makes the redness and broken capillaries look better, increases collagen production, is non-invasive, safe, and effective, and can be tailored to each person.

The Ideal Candidate

Photofacial treatment is a flexible method that can help many different kinds of people. But it works best for people with mild to moderate skin flaws like sunspots, freckles, redness, and broken capillaries. 

It is also a good choice for people who want to improve the overall feel and look of their skin and those who want a non-invasive solution with no downtime.
