Common Questions About Photofacial.
What results can I expect?
After only one treatment, your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade. Pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size. These improvements will steadily increase with each treatment. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive decrease in redness with every treatment.
What will recovery be like?
Post-Photo Facial discomfort is almost nonexistent. After treatment with most light systems, the treated skin may appear a little flushed and capillaries may seem to be more visible. The flushed look soon fades away, and the capillaries appear to vanish, leaving the skin looking younger. It's that simple.
How do Photofacial treatments work?
Today's new light technology delivers precise dosages of energy to the skin. During your treatment, light energy is gently delivered through a special handpiece to the targeted area. Levels of energy specific to your treatment are used to maximize your improvement. Once delivered, the light energy is absorbed by the targeted damaged tissue. After any treatment, you should follow your home care instructions, avoid any harsh skin cleansers and always use sunscreen.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the area treated, most clients need a series of approximately five treatments. Treatments usually take from 15 to 30 minutes. Treatments are spaced out at approximately three week intervals.
Do Photofacial hurt?
Most patients describe the sensation to be like the snap of a rubber band on the skin as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Some patients opt to have a topical anesthesia. After treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
Who are the best candidates for IPL Photo facial Rejuvenation?
The best candidates have:
Red, flushed faces or rosacea
Are Photofacial treatments safe?
Yes! Advanced light systems have been used safely for millions of treatments worldwide. These systems treat only the targeted tissues, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. However, some bruising or redness may occur.
