Sun spots, wrinkles, scarring, and other blemishes on the skin can be troubling and frustrating. Though many over the counter creams may claim to be able to clear the skin from these types of blemishes, they often provide little to no results. Photo facials are a cosmetic procedure that can be used to help improve the appearance and texture of the skin for a younger, more rejuvenated look. Unlike expensive and invasive surgical procedures, photo facials are a gentle procedure can dramatically improve the skin at a fraction of the cost.
During a photo facial, a handheld device is moved across the skin and a narrow beam of laser light works to boost collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. As the production of collagen increases, skin becomes firmer, plumper and smoother, meaning less visible fine lines and wrinkles. Resurfaced skin also means less dark spots and a more even skin tone. This procedure has also been found to reduce problematic acne.
Photo facials in East Lansing can be performed at Michigan Plastic Surgery. It is a completely non-invasive procedure that takes between 30 to 45 minutes to perform. Other than a slight warming or tingling sensation, it is a gentle, pain free treatment with no recovery or downtime required. After a photo facial, patients are free to return to work and all of their other normal daily activities.
The results of a photo facial are instant, but for optimal results, three to six treatments spread out over several weeks is usually recommended. For more information on photo facials in East Lansing, contact Dr. Colony today.
