2. Look for the Medspa in the NYC

Performing a photofacial isn’t a simple process. An intensed-pulse light photofacial, or IPL treatment, can be mildly dangerous if executed improperly. Be sure to have real experts surrounding you at your chosen spa in NYC or surrounding areas. After all, you don’t want to be stuck with trainees or unskilled staff in such an appearance altering facial treatment.

3. Don’t confuse a photofacial with other procedures

Let’s say you walk into a New York spa asking for a “microdermabrasion facial treatment,” thinking a photofacial is the same thing. Well, it’s not. You want to make sure to use the right language to convey your needs to professionals. When it comes to photofacials, many terms get thrown into the mix such as facial IPL treatments, laser resurfacing, rosacea treatment, and various others. In order to prevent any confusion, it’s best to simply say, “I am interested in a photofacial.” If you know the difference between LED (light-emitting diode) photofacials and IPL (intense-pulsed light) photofacials, and you know which you is best for you, say so. If you don’t, either research what is a photofacial, or allow your caregiver to explain.

4. Make sure you set up a full photofacial treatment plan.

Like most light-based treatments, photofacials are often performed multiple times to provide you with the best results. Most spas in New York City, including Skinney Med Spa, offer great packages with great value. At each of your visits, your caregiver will update you on the condition of your treatment. With that being stated, make sure you set aside time for each appointment.

We wish you the best of luck with your desired photofacial treatment. Regardless of which treatment you’re more interested in, it’s important to have an expert examine your facial condition and objectives to assist you in choosing the more appropriate treatment.
