Patients in the Plano area who are interested in reducing the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, acne, and other conditions of the skin are often introduced by their dermatologist to the benefit of photofacials.
Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology provides patients with the information they need to decide if photofacials are right for them. The dermatologist reviews the advantages of photofacials over alternative treatments when patients are deciding on the most appropriate solution for their skin care needs. This treatment is one of the latest technologies that can provide individuals with more radiant complexions.
A photofacial, also known as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment, is a procedure that can take approximately 30 minutes as an in-office procedure and can penetrate into the layers of the skin to provide rejuvenation of the skin. This therapy can result in the stimulation of collagen to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can also improve many medical and cosmetic conditions which are troublesome for individuals.
The best candidates are those who have uneven skin tone and texture and who want to address conditions including:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
Patients who have darker skin or are of Greek, Italian, or African-American descent should discuss with their dermatologist the suitability of the IPL and fully disclose any medications they are on which may affect treatment. Candidates for treatment should have not taken Accutane within the last six months, should not be currently pregnant nor have a significant suntan. Discussing with Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell one’s medical history and ethnicity is the best way to determine if this treatment is appropriate.
