Flawless skin is something that each of us dream, especially when it comes to our face. We all want that perfectly glowing, spotless skin that is blemish and wrinkle free. And there are many remedies that people try out in order to maintain their skin and keep it looking flawless.

As you may all be aware, one of the main culprits when it comes to causing skin related problems is exposure to sunlight. Although we do need some amount of exposure to sunlight when it comes to maintaining healthy skin, too much of can lead to development of a sun-tan, skin darkening and even damage to the skin.

Although a sun screen may help to reduce the amount of damage that occurs to your skin as a result of daily exposure to sunlight, it cannot entirely prevent it and in the long run, you will definitely be able to see the changes that are occurring to your skin as a result of this damage.

Of late, more and more people are turning towards photo facial treatment carried out by a skin specialist in Janakpuri, as the answer to reverse this damage that occurs as a result of exposure to sunlight. And, we are here to explain to you all about photo facial treatment and how it can benefit you.

What is photo facial treatment?
It is a light based treatment which helps to reverse a y changes that may have occurred to your skin as a result of too much exposure to sunlight. Along with this, it also helps solve other skin issues that people may be having, because during this treatment, your skin becomes rejuvenated, and there is a boost of collagen and elastin production in the skin, making it look healthier, and helping to solve many other skin related issues.

What are the benefits of photo facial treatment?
Because of this increased elastin and collagen production, there are multiple benefits to the skin which include:

Improvement of skin texture and tone
Reduces skin blemishes
Reduces dark spots
Skin pores are tightened
Reduces acne scars
Reduces wrinkles on the skin
Reduces development of acne
Helps with the treatment of Rosacea, a condition which develops as a result of an enlarged blood vessel and causes you skin to look red
You might still be wondering why you should opt for photo facial treatment when there are many other types of treatments that address the same issues. Added to the above mentioned benefits, you should also know that this treatment is less time consuming, with a session usually taking only up to 20 minutes, and never exceeding 1 hour. It can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, back, arms and neck. It can be done in conjunction with other skin care treatments and its effects are long lasting.

What are the different kinds of photo facial treatments available?
There are 2 different types of photo facial treatments available, which is the LED (Light Emitting Diode) treatment and the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment, which are both different from your regular facial. Led treatment is less intense, and involves using different hand held light emitting devices to your skin, which then help to boost collagen production and can help resolve minor issues such as wrinkles and blemishes.

IPL treatment is more intense than LED and involves the use of a powerful light whose wavelength is outside that of laser, and this light then penetrates deep into the skin to boost production of elastin and collagen, but does not cause any harm. Both these types of treatment will leave your skin looking younger and rejuvenated.
