Photofacial

LASER

Photofacial is a laser light treatment that targets pigment issues, such as brown spots, sun damage and red spots, and Rosacea. The bright light passes through the epidermis, drawing out the pigment producing cells and dispersing the uneven pigment. Photofacial treatments can be used on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back arms, legs and just about anywhere else. Photofacial is also an effective treatment for broken veins and spider veins. 

Why it's special:

The light energy is converted to heat energy and destroys the hyperactive melanin producing cells in the layers of your skin, eventually dispersing pigmented areas. The spots are pulled to the surface, eventually turning into a coffee-ground-like texture that eventually flakes off revealing beautiful, radiant skin beneath.

What to Expect

We will thoroughly cleanse your skin, so you can either come with or without makeup. After the skin is clean, we will apply a cool gel to your skin, which enhances the effect of the light waves. We move the laser over the skin in a grid-like pattern, flashing the light about every centimeter. Depending on your need, we may go over the area multiple times.

After the treatment, we will again clean the skin, removing the gel. You will likely be slightly red and puffy, but there is no significant down time. You are free to reapply make up right away and return to your normal skin care routine. Be sure to stay out of the sun for at least the next week and be consistent in sun screen application.
