Photo Facial or Photo facial Treatment as it is generally called as an advanced Medi facial treatment. It uses light based technology to get the desired results on the skin.
Photo Facial generally uses IPL Technology ( Intense Pulsed Light ) that involves devices that use broad spectrum light. This light when comes in contact with the skin repairs blood vessels, treats pigmentation and boosts collagen.
IPL photofacial light is soaked up by the hemoglobin (red blood cells) and melanin (pigmentation) in the skin, intentionally damaging these areas. The damaged melanin breaks up and is absorbed by the skin, decreasing its appearance on the skin’s surface. The damaged hemoglobin stimulates blood flow, causing the melanin to be absorbed more efficiently.
