Is a photofacial the same thing as laser skin resurfacing?

Not exactly. Photofacials can be ideal for treating skin care concerns that might include light acne scars, redness, rosacea, broken capillaries and hyper pigmentation. The photofacial procedure includes a non-ablative laser that is calibrated to seek out exact pigments in the skin and ultimately feels like rubber bands snapping against the skin's surface. With each individual snap, the photofacial penetrates below the skin's surface treating the issues at the core. For success, a patient will likely require multiple photofacial treatments. Overall, it can create a big difference in the patient's skin over time. This is because the skin will continue to improve for weeks following the procedures. Over the course of a few treatments, laser skin resurfacing therapy can help restore the patient's youthful glow by smoothing out texture that might appear uneven and caused by sun damage, scars or aging. The procedure reduces pore size, and other minor imperfections for an overall healthier complexion. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can have quite a dramatic effect. It is a comfortable, non invasive and non-ablative skin therapy. There are no side effects and the treatment can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without anesthesia.
