The Infrared Facial is a fast, easy, and painless treatment that visibly reduces signs of aging immediately after a single treatment.
What are common signs of aging?
There are many different signs of aging, and some people see certain signs of aging while other people see different signs of aging. Common signs of aging in the skin include irregular texture, fines lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, dull skin, loose or saggy skin, uneven color, dark spots, and broken capillaries. These are caused by a number of environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution; lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, not getting enough sleep, and having a poor diet; and genetics. The best ways to reduce signs of aging include using sunscreen daily, applying a good regimen of skin care products, and having a healthy lifestyle. In addition, having treatments such as the Infrared Facial can help.
What does the Infrared Facial do?
The Infrared Facial uses gentle micro-pulses of infrared light to slowly and gently heat up the deeper layers of your skin. This stimulates your body to form new, fresh, and healthy collagen, the protein in your skin that keeps it tight and youthful in appearance. Over the course of six Infrared Facial treatments, your skin will generate more and more collagen and look younger and healthier. Even after a single Infrared Facial treatment you will notice that the texture of your skin looks smoother with reduced fine lines and shrinking of enlarged pores. You will also see a more even color on the skin and improvement in any redness or broken capillaries.
What happens during an Infrared Facial treatment?
Before your Infrared Facial treatment, we have you wash your face and we take baseline pictures of your skin to monitor your progress. Metal eye shields will be placed over your eyes to protect them. You will not see any light since the light that is used is invisible. You will feel your skin slowly warm up. When treating the face with an Infrared Facial, four areas are treated, one at a time: each cheek, the forehead, and the nose and lips. The total treatment takes about ten minutes and is completely painless. Your skin may be slightly red for an hour or so, but there is no recovery time. You can go back to work right away.
When will I see results from an Infrared Facial treatment?
The best thing about the Infrared Facial treatment is that you will notice results right away. These results include a more even skin color, improvement in fine lines, and a decreased size of pores. You will see a glow on your skin for a few days. Over the course of a series of treatments, your skin will gradually product more and more collagen so you will enjoy long-term improvement.
How many Infrared Facial treatments do I need?
Dr. Alex recommends a series of six Infrared Facials. Dr. Alex recommends having the Infrared Facial treatments every two weeks, but they can be done anywhere from one to four weeks apart. This makes the treatments flexible so you can have them around your own schedule. After the initial series of six Infrared Facial treatments, Dr. Alex recommends having one Infrared Facial treatment every three months to keep your skin looking youthful and healthy.
