HOW DOES IT WORK?
Photofacials at True MediSpa are safe and quick, performed in 45 minutes or less. Photofacials deliver various wavelengths of light, which target different skin concerns and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. When this occurs, pigmented damage such as sun/age spots and freckles get pushed to the surface of the skin and naturally flake off. The light also treats dilated capillaries and diffuse redness in the skin. The end result is a more even, bright and creamy skin tone. Another benefit of photofacials is collagen stimulation that firms the skin, leaving you with youthful, rejuvenated, healthy-looking skin.
EXCITING NEW RESEARCH
A new study recently published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology shows that regular photofacial treatments not only make the skin look better on the outside but can also change the expression of longevity-related genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble those of younger individuals. Younger skin cells produce more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid than aged skin cells.
