Looking for a new way to get that great shine? Laser Studio in Austin offers photofacials or laser skin resurfacing, a great way to rejuvenate your skin and give you the healthy complexion you’ve been searching for.
Many people who lead an active lifestyle are routinely exposed to the sun and the wind, damaging the surface of the skin. Add that to the aging factor, and you may fight with sun spots or pigment problems all over your face, as well as skin texture issues. If you’re looking for a younger, firmer appearance, a photofacial might be the ideal solution.
Our photofacial will rejuvenate your skin through resurfacing – removing dead cells and stimulating collagen production. Your skin will feel clear, smooth and tight. You will notice the remarkable difference right away! Getting this facial every 3 months or so will prevent skin aging. Unlike chemical peels, there is no downtime and redness with a photofacial. The whole process takes 30-45 minutes. Experience the amazing results of a photofacial yourself!
Our Yag laser can also remove sun spots, pigmentation and photo aging.
As with many other similar treatments, these facials work by using a laser to focus on a portion of your skin, usually an irregularity. This can remove that area without causing any serious damage to the surrounding skin. What’s more, though, is that a photofacial can tighten the collagen, thus improving the overall texture and reducing signs of aging.
Our facials can help to do a number of things including reverse signs of sun damage, reduce pigmentation in certain areas, treat excessive blushing, and improve the texture of your skin as a whole.
In some ways, yes. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion literally remove a layer of skin, and that may lead to the need for a bit of extra healing time. With photofacial treatments, though, you’re eliminating the underlying problems in the skin, and the outer skin remains undamaged, so healing time is minimal.
In most cases, you’ll want to undergo a number of treatments for best results. Many people require four full face treatments. A photofacial treatment lasts just fifteen minutes, and you’ll begin to see results after the first fee treatments.
Most people describe the feeling of a laser as the gentle snapping of a rubber band, and few experience what might be called pain. However, if you’re uncomfortable, we can apply a topical anesthetic before we get started. Your face might look a little red right after treatment, but that usually disappears within the first hour. You will need to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun right after a photofacial treatment.
