Fall is the Best Time for FotoFacial

Foto Facial, IPL, Alpharetta, GAChances are you won’t be spending many hours out in the sun once the weather turns cooler and days are shorter, and that is why you should consider having a FotoFacial procedure, sometimes referred to as an IPL, performed around this time of the year. Even though this blog is about Foto Facial or IPL, we want to take time to remind you that it is still important to use sun screen every day, because even a little exposure to sun can be damaging to skin any day of the year. Also, you never know when a short trip may turn into several hours of unexpected sun exposure. Keeping this in mind, we do want to let you know that fall is an ideal time to take care of any sun damage you incurred over the summer and a Foto Facial is the best way to treat sun damaged skin along with other skin problems. Georgia Dermatology Center invites all those living in Alpharetta and Johns Creek, GA to call for a complimentary consultation (678-845-7494) to find out if a Foto Facial is right for your skin condition.

What Does a Foto Facial Do?

A Foto Facial is done to treat any type of sun damage like brown spots and age spots, uneven skin tone, large pores, broken capillaries, spider veins, fine lines and facial redness. It can also be used to create plumper, younger looking skin by boosting collagen production. The Foto Facial skin rejuvenation properties have been proven with medical research. Foto Facials (IPL) can also be used as an acne treatment and works by killing the bacteria that causes acne.

How Does a Foto Facial Work?

Foto Facial is a safe and non-invasive procedure that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) and radio frequency technology to diminish imperfections in your skin. This procedure has increased in popularity and recognition to the point where it is now one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures at Georgia Dermatology Center which is located north of Alpharetta in cumming, GA. This remarkable and innovative treatment technology is FDA- approved for facial rejuvenation. The treatment requires no downtime and is especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, and backs of hands.

In most cases, Foto Facial does not exert its full beneficial effect in only one treatment and in some cases a patient may need up to five treatments over the span of twelve weeks. To optimize results, the expert skin care professionals at Georgia Dermatology Center often recommends a combination of treatments with superficial skin peels or microdermabrasion between the Foto Facial treatments. Each patient is different and the degree of their skin damage varies so the exact number of treatments is not the same for everyone.

The reason fall is the best time for a Foto Facial; you have several months to experience full results before spring and summer arrive. However, you must remember, the sun can re-damage your skin again. If you want to maintain the results you have achieved, you must minimalize your sun exposure and always remember sunblock every day. If you know you are going to be out all day, protect yourself even more by wearing a hat and sun glasses.

If you live in Alpharetta or Johns Creek, GA, you are just a short drive north to one of the best aesthetic dermatology centers in the entire metro Atlanta area. Georgia Dermatology Center is located in the Northside Forsyth hospital campus. Dr. Alexander Gross has been treating dermatology patients for over 25 years and always welcomes new patients.
