Photo Facial Laser

What is a Photo Facial?
A Photo Facial is a Laser Treatment for Hyperpigmentation and sun damage. A Photo Facial (also known as Photofacial and Fotofacial) is a skin treatment that reduces the appearance of: broken capillaries, enlarged pores, rosacea, Facial Spider Veins, sun damage, and sun spots. The device uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target the blood vessels and pigment. Photo Facial will create tightness of the skin, as well as soften the texture.

Why would I want a photo facial?
It’s non-surgical, quick, and effective way to improve hyper pigmentation. It targets only the melanin in the pigmented lesion or blood vessel so the rest of the skin is safe.

The most common areas treated with a photo facial are:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Face
  • Legs
  • Neck

The most common conditions treated with a photo facial are:

  • Angiomas
  • Hemangioma
  • Port wine stains
  • Rosacea
  • Vascular and pigmented lesions
  • Venous malformation

How does the photo facial work?
The pigmented lesion is exposed to short pulses of visible light, which sharply raises the temperature in the highly concentrated melanin – just enough to shatter the cells containing the melanin. The body then replaces these cells with new cells generated by the surrounding untreated area.

What to Expect During the Procedure
Once the skin is cleansed, a light layer of gel is applied. The gel will be cool, and will allow the Fotofacial handpiece to glide across your skin. Laser goggles will be worn by you and the provider to block the specific wave link from the laser. The treatment will heat up the skin, while targeting skin discoloration and help remove the unwanted pigment.

What to Expect After a Photo Facial
Following Photo Facial treatment, your skin will be red. Sun spots will be darker and will naturally slough off or fade, within one to two weeks. Spider veins and broken capillaries can dissipate immediately during the treatment, or it can take up to two weeks for them to fade. Rosacea will be less apparent within one week following your Photo Facial treatments.

There is no downtime with Photofacial. It is important to wear sunscreen because one will be sensitive to the sun following the treatment. Exposure to the sun can cause new, unwanted pigment, and reverse the effects of the photo facial. Makeup can be worn the next day.
