PHOTOFACIAL

PHOTOFACIAL

a skin treatment that uses light-based technology to create a more even complexion by targeting multiple skin conditions such as brown spots (sun damage, age spots, liver spots, freckles), redness (rosacea and broken capillaries) and acne. the light energy absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates your cells to regenerate new collagen, producing younger-looking skin that’s even in tone & texture…

how does it work

the light penetrates the pigmented tissue and damages it. once this happens, the body processes the injured tissue and over time, the natural healing process of the skin helps remove the affected areas, revealing fresh, healthy skin

skin conditions that can be treated

sun damage

 age spots

freckles

liver spots & other benign brown pigments

broken capillaries

rosacea

acne

are you a candidate

there are several factors that need to be considered to confirm this treatment is safe and effective for you

 these include (but are not limited to)…

  • medical history
  • ancestry/skin tone
  • pregnant/breastfeeding is a no-go
  • no sun exposure 2-4 weeks prior and post-treatment (this includes sunless tanner)
  • you must be off accutane for at least 6 months to a year as well as any other photosensitizing medication
  • stop the use of retinol/retin-A or glycolic acid one week prior
  • wait 2-4 weeks after botox & filler

cost

we charge $295 per area

post-treatment

there’s little to no downtime. the treated area might be red and slightly swollen, but you can apply makeup directly after. a mineral SPF should be applied post-treatment and worn religiously thereafter.
your age spots and sun spots will typically become darker as the pigment is lifted to the surface (varies per patient) and can have a “coffee ground” appearance, but generally sloughs off after 1-2 weeks

treat the skin gently and allow the pigment to slough off naturally

*picking or scrubbing can lead to scarring*

how many treatments are needed

this is something you will need to determine with your provider based on your individual needs.
typically, it’s anywhere from 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart
