Something that can become quite annoying about skin is its tendency to break out in pimples, especially on the face. Although pimples are most often associated with teenagers, the reality is that there are many adults who also develop pimples from time to time. Then, there are the large pores. All a person has to do is look in the mirror and see them to know that they are there. In such a scenario, the skin might actually start to resemble the porous skin of an orange!

While some people might choose over the counter products in order to combat their pimpled or large pored skin, they also have the option of getting a FotoFacial. When you have your picture taken, part of the process includes a flash of light. So it is too with the FotoFacial, which is a procedure that uses pulses of light to repair a variety of different skin problems.

So, what is the process behind getting a FotoFacial? First of all, it is important to figure out whether or not you are the right candidate for this kind of procedure. This procedure is meant to treat not just pimples and large pores, but also thinks like roscacea, flushing, and hyperpigmentation.

How can light actually fix these kinds of skin problems? First of all, the patient is placed in a reclining chair (like the ones that you would sit in while at the dentist's office) and their face is washed with an antiseptic. Next, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the area. Finally, the technician or aesthetician will use a handheld device to administer the pulsations of light to the specific areas that need to be treated.

In the case of pimples, the heat of the light pulsations permeate the upper layers of the skin to attack and eradicate the bacteria that causes the pimples in the first place. When it comes to large pores, the heat acts to expel the dirt that was trapped in the pores, thus making them large in the first place.

When it comes to other irregularities such as skin flushing or hyperpigmentation, once again, the heat of the light works to break up the damaged skin molecules or the melanin molecules. As for the actual light itself, that helps to stimulate the flow of blood in the face, which in turn stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.

Something that prospective patients want to know is in regard to how the procedure itself feels. While the topical anesthetic cream will take away the majority of the discomfort that the patient might feel, the overall sensation has been compared to the sensation of a rubber band being snapped against the skin.

It is important to note that while results might be seen as soon as a couple of days after the first FotoFacial procedure, the patient will need more than one treatment in order to see the best results. On average, this is anywhere from two to five treatments, depending on the severity of the skin condition being treated.
