Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Photo Facial?
A Photo Facial is a technique for removing discoloration in the skin resulting in an even and youthful appearance. This procedure is non-surgical and requires no down-time.

How Does a Photo Facial Work?
The Photo Facial utilizes intense pulsed light that is applied to the area being treated. The pulsed light penetrates the skin. Heat impairs pigmentation or vessels and the body begins its natural healing process. The pigmented area will darken and flake off and vessels will be reabsorbed into the body. The skins appearance is left more youthful with even tones and reduced redness.

What Are The Benefits Of a Photo Facial Treatment?
The Photo Facial will improve the following conditions:

  • Sun and age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve uneven pigmentation and red flushing of the skin
  • Smooth skin and even the skins tone
  • Improve the appearance of Rosacea and broken capillaries

How Will My Skin Look After A Photo Facial Treatment?
It is normal for the skin to look and feel flushed or red after the treatment (similar to a mild sunburn). Brown pigmented spots will become darker and capillaries may appear more visible for a short period of time. Most individuals can resume social activities immediately following the treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I need?
The condition of your skin and the desired results will determine the number of necessary treatments. Some individuals notice significant improvement in 2-3 treatments. For optimal results 4-6 treatments are recommended in 4 week intervals.

Are Photo Facial Treatments Painful?
The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping lightly against your skin. Following the treatment a cool compress may be applied to assist with any discomfort.
