Frisco Skin Pigment Correction
Photofacials Helping You Achieve a More Balanced & Even Skin Tone
The general public is only just beginning to understand the incredible things that lasers can do when it comes to wellness and beauty. What sometimes still feels like science fiction is nonetheless a cosmetic fact: lasers can be used to address a wide variety of imperfections in the skin and stimulate a healthy, glowing complexion. At its simplest, a laser is just light that has been focused to a specific wavelength to accomplish a particular task. When it comes to beauty applications, this precision can mean targeting blood vessels or other structures beneath the skin without actually affecting the surface of the skin at all. In the case of our skin pigment correction treatment in Frisco, we can utilize our laser technology to help directly address unwanted redness and pigmentation.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Dr. Shipes is proud to have among the only EVO FORTE systems installed in a Texas doctor’s office. The system allows for extremely precise treatment of areas with pigmentation issues of any kind, including broken blood vessels or rosacea. Over several weeks of treatment, the overall health and texture of the skin will be improved thanks to the increased collagen production.
Also known as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or photofacials, patients will generally have between three and five treatments depending on their desired results. The laser will be tuned to target the red blood cells in the target area, causing either the vessel wall or the melanin to fragment and be absorbed by the body. Over time, the pigment will be less visible, resulting in a more even skin tone.
What to Expect
For most patients, there will be a series of three to five treatments spaced about one month apart, meaning they can expect full results in around three to five months. There will be some improvement after each treatment, but it is not a linear process – a small change after your second treatment could be followed by a significant change after the third, or vice-versa. Regardless of what is required for your unique situation, you can expect a gradual improvement over time, with some instances of redness, freckles, or age spots actually appearing darker for a period of days before beginning to fade.
