Photo Facial: Everything You Need to Know

Posted on May 22nd, 2017

Healthy, glowing skin never goes out of style! With so many skincare products available, we’re certain your vanity is filled with a wide array of peels, masks and scrubs that can make it tempting to skip out on a facial. We checked in with our beauty consultants who gave us the scoop on why you should be incorporating a Photo Facial into your skincare regimen, plus our guests’ top FAQs.

1. What is a Photo Facial?
iTAN has two Photo Facial options available, including Lumiére and LightStim. The Lumiére Photo Facial at iTAN is a 20-minute session that uses LED light emitting both red and near infrared light designed to rejuvenate and restore the delicate skin on your face, neck and hands.

LightStim is an FDA cleared medical device that can reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles in just two months.

2. What are the benefits of Lumiére?
Our guests can get the most out of their Photo Facial with a skincare system customized to achieve optimal results. The three different skin care programs are designed for Lift, Clarity and Radiance.

The Lift products provide immediate lifting and tightening of the skin, while improving the skin’s support matrix to enhance firmness and elasticity.

The Radiance product line combined with a Photo Facial serves as a repairing treatment to improve skin clarity, tone and texture, while minimizing the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.

The Clearing products are perfect for removing impurities and improving the appearance of problematic, oily and uneven complexions, while smoothing and balancing the skin.

3. What are the benefits of LightStim?
In order to get the best results from LightStim, all guests are advised to use the LightStim PhotoSerum that is activated by the light spectrum of LightStim. The PhotoSerum helps deliver anti-aging properties such as Hyaluronic Acid and Matrixyl 3000 to dramatically maximize results.

Hyaluronic Acid, a proven ingredient, is a natural substance that helps to preserve youthful, healthy skin, and increase suppleness, elasticity and tone. It forms a transparent film over the skin that holds 300 times its molecular weight keeping the skin highly moisturized.

A peptide to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, Matrixyl 3000 has been shown to reduce the surface area of wrinkles by 45%, improving elasticity and tone.

4. Can you go back to work after a Photo Facial?
Absolutely! A Photo Facial is designed to be noninvasive, so you can go about your day with no downtime.

5. How often do you have to get a Photo Facial?
You can get a Photo Facial everyday if you’d like! For best results, we generally recommend getting a Photo Facial two to four times a week for a month. Once you achieve your desired results, once a week should suffice for maintenance.
