Which is Better: IPL Photofacial or Fraxel?
Although both IPL photofacials and Fraxel laser treatments can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, and other skin concerns, there are some key differences between the two that can make one a better option than the other for certain people. Keep reading to learn more about IPL photofacials and Fraxel laser treatments so you can decide which one is right for you.
IPL photofacials use intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of sun damage, age spots, broken capillaries, and other skin concerns. The light energy is absorbed by specific target cells in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. This absorbed energy then converts to heat, destroying the target cells and causing them to be eliminated by the body.
Fraxel Laser Treatments
Fraxel laser treatment is a type of resurfacing treatment that uses microscopic laser columns to penetrate deep into the skin. This stimulation causes collagen and elastin production, which results in firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin. It can also help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and other skin concerns.
So, which is better—an IPL photofacial or Fraxel laser treatment? The answer depends on your individual goals and needs. If you are looking for a treatment that can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, then Fraxel may be a better option for you. However, if you are looking for a treatment to help improve the appearance of sun damage or broken capillaries, then an IPL photofacial might be better suited for you.
