Photofacial / Foto Facial | Snellville GA
Photofacial skin rejuvenation at Abraham Medical Cosmetics in Snellville, GA (outside of Atlanta) uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to diminish fine lines, pigmentation issues, acne scars and many other troubling skin conditions without the downtime of laser skin resurfacing. IPL therapy is similar to laser therapy, but instead of emitting one wavelength per pulse like laser, it delivers multiple wavelengths to penetrate deeper. Even though you’ll notice results after just one IPL treatment, we recommend a treatment regimen of four to six treatments to achieve optimal results. Expect to see an even complexion with fewer fine lines and wrinkles after Photofacial skin rejuvenation.
