Collagen production and wrinkle reduction are two of the main things people seek a photofacial for. Is a photofacial really good for these things? If so, what kind is best?
First of all, yes, a photofacial is an excellent choice for increasing collagen and reducing wrinkles. However, the best kind of photofacial for this is not IPL, but an LED photo facial.
Why Non-IPL Photofacial is Best for Boosting Collagen
Collagen grows slowly, especially so the more we age. Increasing its production requires repeated, consistent treatments.
While some IPL photofacial equipment may emit the wavelengths necessary for collagen production and wrinkle reduction, you would have to do a lengthy series of treatments to achieve the desired results, and then keep making appointments to maintain them. For that reason, the best type of photofacial for collagen production is an LED photo facial, because you can own the equipment yourself.
LED devices are affordable, safe, and easy to use in your own home. This allows you to do a photofacial treatment as often as necessary and for as long as necessary without the continued expense and hassle of IPL appointments.
