Bloomfield Hills, MI – If you are unhappy with your skin’s complexion or you have a skin ailment that has been bothering you for some time, there is a revolutionary new cosmetic surgery treatment you’ll certainly want to know about.
The treatment that can give you more youthful, radiant, and blemish-free skin is known as the “Photofacial,” also referred to photorejuvenation, and uses the power of mere light to help you look your very best.
Here is all you need to know about photofacial treatments so you can start planning the procedure that can give you the smooth, even-textured you’ve always wanted.
What Does Photofacial Treatment Consist Of?
When you go to the office of top Detroit plastic surgeon Dr. M. Azhar Ali for a photofacial treatment, you can expect to experience Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) first-hand.
Dr. Ali uses a device called the Frax 1550 Nordlys Hybrid System to administer SWT, which consists of highly-filtered light pulses that break up the upper skin layer and invigorate the skin underneath, bringing your natural radiance to the surface.
The Frax 1550 is technology handcrafted in Denmark and sports 15 FDA-approved treatments.
What is Photofacial Treatment Used For?
You would schedule an appointment with Dr. Ali if you wanted to get rid of damaged or wrinkled skin, or skin that’s marred by stretch marks, scars, acne, or age spots.
You would also come to Dr. Ali for a photofacial treatment if you notice uneven pigmentation, redness, and other skin problems you’ve tried to address yourself to no avail. The treatment can also be used for hand rejuvenation.
How Does a Photofacial Work?
Dr. Ali will ensure you are comfortable; then he will use an apparatus that emits a pulsing light over the affected area. The treatment time varies, but should only last around 15-30 minutes on average.
Is There Any Discomfort or Downtime?
Dr. Ali is one of the first plastic surgeons to offer the Nordlys Hybrid System. He chose the system because it is non-invasive, safe, and virtually painless. There is also minimal downtime.
Do the Treatments Work Right Away?
While every cosmetic surgery case is different, you should see an improvement in your skin color and tone following the very first treatment. If you have a severe case of sun damage or other skin problem, you may require additional treatments to achieve the desired results.
You may also require additional treatments if you tend to be of the fairer skinned variety, as Dr. Ali will be forced to lower the settings on the Frax 1550 to keep from burning your skin.
On average, patients visit Dr. Ali for 3-4 sessions of photofacial treatments before noticing maximum results.
Are the Results Permanent?
The results of a photofacial treatment can be extremely long lasting if you protect your skin from the sun and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen while out and about during the day.
If you don’t care for your skin as Dr. Ali recommends, you may have to return for re-treatment in the near future.
What Results Can Be Expected?
SWT technology uses longer wavelengths of light than the sunlight that reach deep into your skin to stimulate new collagen production. This gives your skin a more youthful and radiant glow.
You will also see an improvement in the texture of your skin. It will be smoother and softer to the touch, allowing you to not only look your best but feel that way too.
How Much is a Photofacial?
While your cost may vary depending on the areas that need to be treated and how many treatments you opt to receive, the average price for a photofacial treatment is around $450.
