Stanford University on Photo Facials: Stop The Signs of Aging – And Prevent Them Too

New scientific evidence suggests that the benefits of BBL photofacials, like those available at MCH Laser and Wellness Center in Odessa, TX, may extend way beyond a more radiant and even toned complexion.

A recent study conducted at Stanford University and published by the Journal of Investigative Dermatology demonstrates that photofacials work on a deep molecular level to change genetic patterns of aged skin.

So what does that mean exactly? This research indicates that photo facials do more than just erase certain signs of aging once they’re there – they can actually prevent them all together. “This is the closest we’ve come to discovering a Fountain of Youth,” said Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., MD, a photofacial pioneer, as the founder and developer of the first Fotofacial™ procedure.

The benefits of photofacials at MCH Laser and Wellness Center include improvements to:
• Rosacea
• Hyperpigmentation like Age Spots, Sun Spots & Sun Damage
• Enlarged Pores
• Facial Redness
• Broken Capillaries
• Fine lines and wrinkles

A second study carried out by Dr. Bitter provides evidence that patients who received regular photofacials over a period of about 10 years maintained significantly younger-looking skin than those who did not. “In my experience, no skin care product, bio-identical hormone regimen, supplement or vitamin can improve skin and slow down its aging better than light therapy can,” said Dr. Bitter.

There is also intriguing evidence in this second study that photofacials might actually reduce the risk of skin cancer.
