IPL/FotoFacial in Lafayette -
The Light that Reveals Healthy Skin
It’s everyone’s worst nightmare: that first fine line…not quite a wrinkle, but there nonetheless. Aging happens, but, that does NOT mean you cannot make your skin as healthy and as youthful as possible. Turning back the clock doesn’t work, but many of the treatments and services we offer at youbaby do!
Our techniques, technology, and products can reduce redness, fade or completely erase age spots, dark spots, blotchy patches or other skin imperfections.
One in particular that we use all the time to great success is a FotoFacial®.
A FotoFacial®, also known as IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, uses combined light energies and bi-polar radio frequency to effectively and gently restore and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.
The best thing about a FotoFacial® – in addition to the fact there is little to no downtime – is that it is a less invasive alternative to other options for skin resurfacing. Essentially, the light works to increase the skin’s collagen production and to constrict blood vessels.
FotoFacials® are perfect for treating
- Flushed Skin
- Fine Lines
- Age spots and discoloration
- Sun Damage
Here’s how the procedure works: A topical numbing cream is first applied to clean skin for 45 minutes. Once the skin is feeling numb, we remove the cream, cover your eyes with protective covers and apply an ultrasonic gel to a specific treatment area. Then, the handpiece crystal is gently placed on the skin and a pulse is released (you may see an indirect flash of light). Some clients experience a slight heat sensation that only lasts for a second or two. We remove the gel apply skin calming agent and sunscreen. A bit of redness and swelling is expected after the treatment, but should resolve in a matter of hours.
Each treatment takes approximately an hour.
Almost immediately, your skin will feel firmer. Over the next seven to ten days, you may notice pigmentation in the skin will become more visible, looks like coffee grounds or tiny freckles, and will slightly scab and fake off. Over the next few weeks, redness and flushed skin will also begin to appear lighter (multiple treatments are highly recommended).
We always recommend a three to four treatment regimen over the course of several months.
The results are quite dramatic. You will see:
- Plumper skin
- A more even tone to your complexion
- Fine lines are diminished
- Redness fades
- An improved overall texture to your skin
