Photo Facial - NYC Dermatologist
Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
A photo facial is a skin treatment that is performed using light-based technology to eliminate brown spots and broken capillaries, in addition to boosting collagen. Photo facials can be an excellent treatment option for the right patient. Your results will depend on your skin type and the specific problem you’re treating.
To find out whether or not a photo facial is right for you, call our office today at (888) 610-3133 to schedule a consultation with our experienced New York City dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz.
Types of Photo Facials
There are two main types of photo facials:
- LED (Light-Emitting Diode) – This technology uses a narrow spectrum of light to stimulate the growth of collagen in your skin, helping restore a younger, healthier-looking appearance. LED photo facials can also be used to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. This type of photo facial is painless and carries no risk of burning.
- IPL (Intense-Pulsed Light) – This type of photo facial is less gentle than an LED facial. The technology works by applying a bright blast of light at a high energy level to your skin, and is used for treating brown spots, spider veins, facial redness, and broken capillaries.
We primarily use a state-of-the-art LED laser for photo facials. Apart from increasing collagen production, the LED laser can neutralize free radicals, reduce sun damage, improve fine lines, reduce pores, minimize redness, and improve the overall appearance of your complexion.
Getting the Most Out of Your Photo Facial
A photo facial is usually not a one-time treatment. We suggest multiple sessions for effective results, with one or two weeks spaced between them. Dr. Katz may recommend photo facials in conjunction with another treatment to help you achieve the best possible results. We are dedicated to helping you develop a comprehensive skin care regimen to rejuvenate your appearance and ensure your results last.
