Skin Rejuvenation FAQs
How does PhotoFacial work?
Using a handheld instrument, our physicians apply intense light in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area to stimulate the natural healing process. PhotoFacial is an excellent modality for removing hyperpigmentation (age spots), evening out skin tone, reducing pore size, and stimulating collagen production. It also may be able to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
How many sessions will it take?
Although each patient is unique, on average, five treatments are needed. Since sun damage often extends beyond the surface of the skin and into the dermis, consecutive treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. Talk to one of our physicians to determine how many treatments you will need to love the way you look.
Am I a good candidate for PhotoFacial?
If you would like to improve the overall appearance of your skin without the expense, risks, and downtime associated with plastic surgery, then you are an excellent candidate for this procedure. PhotoFacial can produce dramatic results by minimizing pore size, stimulating collagen production, and correcting hyperpigmentation.
Is there any downtime associated with PhotoFacial?
Not at all. Because this procedure is non-invasive, most clients return to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
How safe are the treatments?
Very safe. Side effects are extremely rare but can occur. Immediately following treatment, some patients may experience a bit of redness or flushing, and skin irregularities such as brown spots and capillaries may darken temporarily. In most cases, however, these irregularities will fade and the patient will see significant improvement.
