What is the PhotoFacial Treatment Like?
During the treatment, wavelengths of light are shined at the face. Sometimes patients are a bit pink after they leave, easily covered with makeup or sunscreen. Photofacials do not hurt. They do feel a bit warm. Patients come monthly for an initial 5 treatments, and then either 2-4 times a year depending on their maintenance needs. Allow one hour for your treatment from check in to check out, and the actual treatment lasts about 20-30 minutes. It is considered a no-down time procedure, it is walk-in…walk-out!
Anti-Aging Treatment with Photofacial / Intense Pulsed Light:
The same technology, broad band light, has been shown to stimulate collagen production when done over time. The intense pulsed light also helps fade brown marks, as well as reduce red blotchy vessels that arise from too much sun exposure.
