How photofacials work

During your photofacial, concentrated light penetrates into the skin, targeting pigment production in cells below the surface of your skin. This light energy turns into heat energy that destroys hyperactive melanin-producing cells, which reduces unwanted pigment abnormalities.

What to expect during and after your photofacial

At Gago Wellness, we provide Forever Young BBL™ photofacials. This powerful, cutting-edge treatment is quick and gentle. During your 30-minute session, you notice a warm sensation, which is generally well-tolerated. BBL requires fewer treatments to achieve visible and superior result than IPL

You might notice some mild redness in the treatment area after your treatment, which diminishes on its own within several hours. You can go straight back to your usual activities and can even wear makeup shortly after. Benefits then appear gradually for up to three months.

Your photofacial treatment plan

It’s natural to wonder how many photofacials you’ll need, but each Forever Young BBL treatment plan is unique. Your provider may recommend one or multiple sessions, based on factors such as the intensity of your symptoms and your desired r.vesults. Once you reach your preferred look, you may benefit from a yearly maintenance treatment.

Safety of photofacials

While all aesthetic treatments bring some amount of risk, photofacials are a lot less risky than invasive procedures such as surgery. Possible side effects — such as bruising, blisters, and scabbing — tend to be temporary and easily manageable. Working with a skilled and experienced practitioner is the best way to lower your risk for unwanted complications.
