PhotoFacial

 

PhotoFacial involves a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments to improve the appearance of Rosacea, flushing, sun damage, age spots, mild acne scars, large pores, fine

lines, and dark circles around the eyes.

During treatment, an intense light is applied in a series of gentle pulses to the treatment area.  Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the surface, where the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation absorbs it.  The body begins a natural healing process. Lesions darken before they flake off or are absorbed by the body.

Side effects are rare. Right after treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots may appear darker, and capillaries may be more visible.  This will clear up after a short period of time.

Many patients see a 70% to 90% improvement following treatment.
