Photofacial Treatment

Photofacial Treatment in Ludhiana


Our skin is the largest organ, a protective covering of our entire body. As it is in direct contact with our surroundings, it is more likely to suffer from issues like rosacea, pigmentation irregularities, and sun damage, among others, due to changing environments, heredity, stress, pollution, or other skin ageing factors. Such skin issues can affect the aesthetics, make an individual less appealing, and end up lowering self-confidence and esteem.

Everyone desires to have perfect skin texture and looks at all times. Keeping this in mind, the aesthetic industry is leaving no stone unturned in combating adversaries. However, it’s very challenging to maintain skin beauty and escape the wrath of ageing skin. Here comes into the picture the increasingly demanding, non-surgical aesthetic procedures.

With the introduction of advanced technologies in skin care and medicine, now it is possible to treat cosmetic skin concerns in many ways. One of the modern aesthetic, multi-purpose treatment options is photofacial.

What is Photofacial?

Photofacial is a light-based, skin rejuvenation treatment in Ludhiana, an alternative therapy to laser skin rejuvenation. It is often regarded as an advanced form of regular facial. Other names of this treatment are facial rejuvenation and photo rejuvenation.

Photofacial treatment is done on all body sites, most exposed to the sun, except around the eyes. Typically, the most common target areas are the face, shoulders, neck, chest, back, legs, arms, and hands.

Why is Photofacial Done?

Photofacial treatments can help address a wide range of cosmetic skin flaws that are caused by sun damage. Mostly, they are performed to treat the following skin issues:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots/ Sun spots
  • Open/enlarged pores
  • Redness or rosacea
  • Skin pigmentation issues (Hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation)
  • Skin blemishes
  • Acne scars
  • Blotchy skin
  • Broken blood capillaries or dilated blood vessels
  • Minor dermal injuries
  • Poor skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Spider veins.

Types of Photofacial

The most sought-after types of photo facial treatments offered at best skin clinic in Ludhiana:

  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacials in Ludhiana- During this treatment, a device emitting intense pulsed light is used to allow deep skin penetration and boost collagen synthesis. The treatment is usually preferred by people suffering from skin concerns such as age spots and hyperpigmentation. It can even be done to treat other skin problems like spider veins, broken capillaries, and even wrinkles. It can be a great option to achieve instant glowing skin.
  • LED Photofacials in Ludhiana – During this non-IPL photofacial, light-emitting diodes are used to treat minor skin problems in people having sensitive skin. LED lights only affect the skin epidermis- the outermost skin layer and are the best options for the treatment of issues like acne marks, minor skin blemishes, or wrinkles. This type of photo facial is less intense than IPL photo facial.

How does Photofacial Work?

In both IPL and LED photo facials, light pulses penetrate deep within the skin and heat the skin dermis to boost collagen production. Collagen is a skin structural protein that helps keep the skin firm and rejuvenated.

The skin penetration ability is higher in the case of an IPL photo facial treatment than in an LED photo facial. When an IPL photo facial is performed, a light pulse is absorbed by the red blood cells and melanin present in the skin. It works to thermally damage melanin in the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation. LED photofacial depends upon which colour LED light is used during the treatment.

A green LED works for the treatment of age spots, hyperpigmentation, and freckles while a blue LED light works for the treatment of skin blemishes, acne, and acne scars. An amber LED photofacial is the best for the treatment of spider veins and red spots while a red LED photofacial works great to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Photofacial Procedure

Here is what you should expect from your photo facial session with us:

  • Application of a cooling gel on the skin of the area to be treated to avoid skin redness and burning sensation during the procedure.
  • Wearing dark glasses to protect eyes from intense light.
  • Moving a light-emitting handheld device on the treatment area while intense pulsed light or LED light reaches the skin dermis and causes controlled damage to pigments of the skin.
  • Wiping of the cooling gel and application of a skin moisturiser and sunscreen.

Before Photofacial Treatment

When you are getting ready for a photofacial session with us, you must be prepared well for it by following some pre-treatment instructions. The precautions that need to be taken before photo facial includes:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure to the area to be treated. Daily wear sunscreen and refrain from sun tanning beds or use artificial tanners for at least 4 to 6 weeks before the treatment.
  • Refrain from the use of skin exfoliants or undergoing retinol-based treatments in the region that will be treated for a week beforehand. Use of Accutane and isotretinoin products must be avoided six months before the treatment.
  • If you have a history of cold sores or are prone to them, take advice from our skin experts during your initial consultation. In such a case, prophylactic antiviral medication will be prescribed to avoid flare-ups of cold sore on the day of the treatment.
  • Inform our practitioner beforehand if having any cosmetic tattoo on or next to the area to be treated, so that tattooed areas can be avoided for the treatment.
  • Discontinue the use of any photosensitizing medications such as minocycline and doxycycline three days prior to the treatment.
  • On the day of the treatment, come with clean, make-up or cosmetic-free skin of the area to be treated

Aftercare Photofacial Treatment

Following a photofacial treatment, some precautions must be taken to ensure smooth recovery and superior quality results of the treatment. Dermatologists in Ludhiana at The Glo Medispa Clinic recommend the following post-treatment guidelines:

  • Apply a cold compress to the treated region during the initial 24 hours to reduce any swelling.
  • Do not expose the treated skin to direct sunlight. To keep your skin sun-protected wear sun-protective clothing and broad-spectrum sunscreen of high SPF.
  • Keep the skin well moisturised by daily applying suitable moisturisers and hydrated by drinking adequate water.
  • Keep your hands off the treated area. Do not pick, rub, or scratch the treated skin.
  • Do not indulge in vigorous physical activities that cause excessive sweating or raise the body temperature.
