Time, age, and even genes can contribute to a less-than perfect complexion. There are tricks of the trade to hold on to the even skin tone naturally found in youth. For example: 1) Use lukewarm water to cleanse your skin. Hot temperatures can exaggerate or even create broken capillaries. 2) Apply sunscreen every day, rain or shine, to keep hyperpigmentation at bay and to prevent the growth of sunspots. 3) Do not pick at blemishes. Doing this will cause scarring.
While these are all important tips to remember, sometimes circumstances beyond our control leave our skin looking lackluster and blotchy. Do not fret! Fotofacial RF to the rescue.
This treatment offered by The White Tea Med Spa is near and dear to my heart. I was blessed to have a grandmother and mother with excellent skin; however, in my early 20’s I struggled with acne that has left scars, and have recently noticed increasing hormonal pigmentation around my lip area. I was thrilled to learn of this awesome treatment that offers the following the benefits:
- Visibly smaller pores
- Lightened age spots
- Smoother texture of the skin
- Elimination of broken capillaries
- Fewer freckles
- The controlling of overproduction of melanin apparent in sun spots
- Brighter, more radiant complexion
- Reduction of hyperpigmentation and discoloration
- Calmed redness and rosacea
So how, exactly, does it work? Fotofacial RF is a skin rejuvenating laser treatment that features the revolutionary Elos technology from Syneron.
This non- surgical treatment combines pigment-seeking pulsed light with powerful radio frequencies, and requires no downtime! What more could you ask for?! I had to experience it for myself.
Never having received any type of laser treatment previously, I was a bit anxious, but was put to ease by my technician, Ivana Stevanovic. With over 25 years of experience, I could tell this woman knew what she was doing; I felt completely relaxed!
Ivana placed eye shields on my eyes to protect them from the intense light, and prepped my skin with a cooling jelly which works as a conductor. In about 25 minutes, Ivana passed over my entire face two times with the laser, concentrating on my upper lip, which was my area of concern. I was amazed how gentle the beams of light felt, and how quickly the entire teatment was performed! Although I did not see significant lightening of my upper lip (most clients see results after 4-6 sessions at three week intervals,) my skin felt refreshed and much smoother in texture.
