The Blossom Medspa
Photo facial, also referred to as photo rejuvenation or IPL (intense pulsed light), is a non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment that uses laser light to target and correct skin damage. The procedure involves a non-abrasive process that deeply permeates the surface of the skin with a broad scope of light. The result is new collagen production, improved texture and better color. Photo facial treats an array of skin conditions like aging, sun exposure, wrinkles, freckles, flushing, dark spots, redness and other skin related issues.
PHOTOFACIALS ADDRESS CONDITIONS SUCH AS
Aging skin is normally characterized by the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, crow's feet around the eyes and the loss of elasticity. Because the skin is aging and has had more exposure to the sun, it will begin to lose volume, become dry and develop brown spots.
Tiny blood vessels become more noticeable at the skin’s surface in the form of a spider web or tree branch shape. The broken capillaries or spider veins often appear as red or blue in color.
The face develops redness from hundreds of small, dilated blood vessels near the skin’s facial surface. Facial flushing can result in itchy inflamed skin that may sweat and blister from the condition.
When the skin has too much exposure to the sun, it can develop fine lines, become dry, wrinkle and lose elasticity. The UV light causes collagen loss, so the skin won’t spring back, resulting in sagging and an uneven skin tone.
Brown spots are often referred to as age spots. They’re flat and usually occur on sun-exposed areas.
Rosacea is a skin condition that usually results in redness on the face. Symptoms are typically pimples, dilated blood vessels, pus-filled bumps and are often located on the forehead, nose chin and cheeks.
Blotchy skin is a reference to a skin discoloration that is characterized by irregular patches on the skin. The patchy skin may appear in a red, brown or gray color on the face, arms, chest and legs, accompanied by itching.
Skin redness, also referred to as erythema, is an irregular condition that occurs with flushing of the skin. This abnormality is often accompanied with itching and swelling.
Varicose veins or spider veins that are visible on the face are also called facial veins. The blood vessels become dilated and are usually noticeable on the forehead, cheeks, nose and eyelids.
A skin condition that causes tan or dark patchy discolorations on the skin. It often occurs in pregnant woman but can also be triggered by sun exposure and birth control pills.
Facial Color / Facial Pigmentation
Facial pigmentation occurs when the skin on the face produces too much melanin, resulting in darker skin. Sun exposure and pregnancy can result in facial pigmentation.
Age spots are brown spots that develop from the over production of melanin. They gradually happen as people age or from UV rays and tanning beds.
Older skin can become discolored with the appearance of brown spots, which are also identified as age spots. Over exposure to the sun’s UV rays is also a cause of liver spots.
Freckles are the small brown spots on the skin that appear on the face and arms. When melanin in the skin reacts to sunlight, freckles may multiply and dominate a whole area of skin, which is usually the face.
