Light up your life with brighter, younger-looking skin
If brown spots, redness or uneven skin tone or texture are revealing your age just a little too well, consider an Photofacial. This light-based treatment is one of the most effective we have to fight pigment-related blemishes anywhere on the body with minimal downtime.
How can Photofacial help me get better-looking skin?
Photofacials treatments are excellent for a variety of concerns, but they are particularly effective at treating discoloration and other pigmentation-related problems, including:
- Sun damage, age spots & freckles
- Rosacea & redness
- Broken capillaries
- Spider veins
What is an Photofacial treatment like?
Photofacial uses concentrated pulsed light to produce improvements in the treatment area. The light heats skin, encouraging collagen production and cell renewal to repair visible damage. Each pulse contains a broad spectrum of light wavelengths, which absorb a range of pigments in the skin, particularly reds and browns.
Each photofacial session takes about 30 minutes. While no anesthesia is required, you will be given special glasses to protect your eyes from the intense light, and a cooling gel will be applied to the area to dampen the mild stinging sensation you may feel during treatment.
Following treatment, you may experience some mild redness in the area, but this should subside within a couple of days. While you can return immediately to normal activity, you must keep treated areas protected with SPF.
Is Photofacial safe for darker complexions?
Because Photofacial affects skin pigmentation, it may not be suitable for tanned or darker skin. Whether Photofacial is right for any given patient is determined on a case-by-case basis. Our experienced medical providers will help you choose the appropriate treatment to get you the results you want as effectively as possible. We will evaluate your skin during a personal consultation and recommend only the treatments that are safe and effective for your skin type and concerns.
How many Photofacial treatments will I need?
While many patients notice improvement after just one treatment, Photofacial typically yields the most satisfactory results with multiple treatments in an area. Depending on an individual’s needs and goals, 3 to 6 treatments may be required.
Will Photofacial results last?
Photorejuvenation is meant to be a long-term solution for a more balanced, healthy complexion. Nothing can stop the natural aging process, however, and it is possible that new blemishes will appear over time. You can help the improvements made with Photofacial last for years and postpone future damage with proper daily skincare, including wearing sunscreen and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
