When It Comes to Skincare, There Are Options. One Is a Light Therapy

If you are in need of skincare – and let’s be honest, most of us are as we get older – then there are a range of different therapies that can be used. Which is the best for you will depend upon your individual skin condition. A photo facial light can help to make your skin look younger.

For some people, the best treatment may be an injectable such as Botox, for instance. However, even when it comes to injectables there are several different types, so you need to make certain that you get the best one that will deal with your particular skin condition.

But it may be the case that an injectable is not the best treatment for you as an individual. A form of laser treatment may be better. But when we are talking about lasers, there are different types of laser and different types of treatment.

Another answer may be a photo facial in Foster City. What’s a photo facial in Foster City? It is a treatment that uses light technology in order to boost collagen in the skin and to reduce blemishes. Even then, there is more than one type of photo facial treatment available.

A LED Light Treatment

One of these is a LED (light-emitting diode) that is the same sort of thing that is used in LED lights in your home. This is also known as a non-IPL therapy and is used to treat minor skin problems because it only works on the very out layer of the skin’s epidermis. At Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology, we can carry out this treatment using a hand-held device or lamp.

If your problem is deeper under the skin, then you may need a photo facial in Foster City that uses intense-pulsed light – hence IPL. When you suffer from age spots and wrinkles which affect the deeper layers of the skin, and which so many people do, then an IPL treatment will work better than LED.

Either way, what you need to do if you want to restore your skin to a far more youthful condition is to make an appointment to see one of our estheticians at Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology who will be able to assess your individual skin condition and advise you of the most appropriate procedure.

You never know, it might not be a photo facial at all. It could be something completely different such as an injectable of one type or another, or it could be a laser light treatment. But whatever you need, the good news is that we have all of the necessary equipment that will deliver perfect results for you.
