If you’ve been reading about the latest developments in skin care and aesthetic technology, you’ve probably already heard the phrase “2D facial.” But what is a 2D facial? How will it improve the appearance of your skin? Let’s take a closer look at what this treatment is, how it works, and what you need to know before you get it done.
A 2D facial sometimes referred to as a “Laser 2D” facial, consists of two different treatments: first, a limelight IPL photofacial and second, a laser genesis treatment. A limelight IPL photofacial is a unique treatment that uses light to improve complexion and appearance by targeting broken capillaries, redness, rosacea, sun spots, age spots, and fine wrinkles. Laser genesis stimulates your skin’s collagen and reduces issues such as redness and enlarged pores by heating up the upper dermis layer of the skin. These two treatments can be offered separately! However, when combined, they provide a more complete and significant improvement to the look and feel of your skin.
A 2D facial can be beneficial for many different skin types and skin appearance issues, including redness, blotchiness, enlarged pores and fine lines. You should consult with your BodyLase provider about the treatment first so they may recommend specific therapies or regimens based on your skin type and your skin’s conditions.
One of the best parts about this treatment is how it offers maximum results with little downtime. It only takes about 45 minutes from start to finish, and you can return to work or go about your day as usual right after. Since this treatment uses limelight and laser genesis techniques, you will be required to avoid the sun before and after your 2D facial. Avoiding the sun before you get the treatment will help reduce the chance of skin sensitivity during the facial, and preventing the sun later will help keep your skin protected during a period of increased sensitivity.
Great skin does not have to be a far-off dream–with a proper skin care consultation and the use of treatments such as a combination laser genesis and limelight photofacial, you can have the skin you’ve always dreamed about having! This unique 2-fold treatment will combine the power of light and laser treatments to reveal happier and better-looking skin in just a few treatments.
