Photo Facial

Photo Facial, also known as a Photofacial or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, is a non-invasive procedure that uses intense pulses of light to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin. The light is absorbed by the skin and is used to target specific concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, age spots, broken capillaries, and uneven skin tone.

The procedure is typically done in a series of treatments, usually 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. During the treatment, a device emitting intense pulsed light is applied to the skin, which emits light energy that is absorbed by the skin. The energy is then converted into heat, which stimulates collagen production, improves blood flow, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The advantages of Photo Facial includes:

  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Reduced broken capillaries
  • Improved overall skin health
  • Low-downtime and non-invasive

Treatment options for hip pain will depend on the underlying cause and can include:

  • Physical therapy: A physical therapist can teach you exercises to strengthen the muscles around your hip, improve your range of motion, and reduce pain.
  • Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help alleviate pain and inflammation. Your doctor may also prescribe stronger medications if needed.
  • Injections: Corticosteroid injections can be used to reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or replace a damaged joint or to remove loose fragments of bone or cartilage.
