Are You a Candidate?

The Photofacial procedure is for those that want improvement in fine lines, blemishes, brown spots, facial spider veins, sun damaged skin, aging skin, oily skin, enlarged pores, and acne scarring, without any surgical procedures.  Individuals who have cancerous skin tumours, certain inflammatory conditions, or are using Accutane should avoid Photofacial treatments.

Prep/Pre-Op

Your doctor will perform the procedure on a test spot at least a week before your initial session, to ensure that your skin does not have an unusual sensitivity to the treatment.

Procedure Details

Treatments involve the use of Radio Frequency, Intense Pulsed Light and Infrared energy pulsed gently on the skin to target fine lines, facial spider veins, blemishes and brown spots of the face, neck, chest and hands. The treatment stimulates the production of your own collagen and after approximately 5 treatments the fine lines appear smoother. The pulsed light also fades spider veins, brown spots and sun-damaged skin. Photofacials produce a smoother, youthful, vital and less-blemished looking skin.

After Care Instructions

Applying an icepack to the treatment area can help reduce swelling if any should occur.  It’s important to note that any exposure to the sun or tanning beds should be avoided at least a month after treatment, and preferably forever with the use of sunscreen and protective clothing.  There may be some itching in the treatment area, but do not pick at any dry or flakey spots of skin. The results of your Photofacial treatment will be enhanced and complimented by the aftercare regime provided to you by your doctor.

Maintenance

In addition to any aftercare instructions provided by your doctor, it is recommended to implement a proper skin care routine at home to maximize the results of your Photofacial.

Side Effects

It is unlikely for you to experience any side effects as a result of receiving Photofacial treatments, and is considered to be a very safe procedure.  

Outcomes

Skin will begin to feel soft and even, with wrinkles and blemishes improving in over 80% of patients after five treatments.  Depending on your skin type and condition, you may require more treatments to achieve the results that you are seeking.

Benefits

The cost of Photofacial procedure is significantly less than other laser treatments, making it a popular choice for those seeking non surgical options.  

Additional Procedures

Chemical peels, e-Matrix, or laser peels can be explored as alternative treatment options to compliment your Photofacial procedure.
