What is a PhotoFacial?
A PhotoFacial is a light-based treatment for brown spots and redness. It also leaves the skin looking just refreshed!
A PhotoFacial or “Intense Pulsed Light” procedure is NOT a laser treatment.
A full face PhotoFacial session will take about 30 minutes and it does hurt!
Your skin will appear red, and brown spots will be darker for 5-10 days, much like a pretty bad sunburn!!
After about 2 weeks, brown spots will be significantly improved and your surface texture will glow!!! Many patients will need 2-3 treatments, but NEVER more than 3 in a row!!!
You may not have darkened your skin with either the sun, tanning beds or self tanner. You must commit to staying out of the SUN and TANNING BEDS forever!!!! Or your spots will return.
To maintain your beautiful results, you must utilize daily antioxidants and a nightly retinoid, and obtain professional chemical peels every 4-8 weeks.
