Photofacial Q & A

What is Photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation, or photofacials, involve a series of gentle treatments that are used to rejuvenate the skin aging and sun damaged skin utilizing intense pulse light (IPL) energies. This is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime used to improve redness, sunspots, fine lines, uneven tone, pore size, acne, spider veins, and reverses the signs of aging and sun damage. The result is a more youthful appearance of the skin to the face, neck, chest, and hands. Advanced, intense, pulsed light and fluorescent pulsed light systems are the latest innovations in non-ablative cosmetic skin rejuvenation. Your doctor uses advanced light systems to restore a more youthful appearance to your skin by efficiently treating redness, flushing, and pigmentary problems. 

What is a Photorejuvenation treatment like?

The Photorejuvenation specialist will cover the entire surface of the area to be treated with clear ultrasound gel and pulsed with the light. The entire area is targeted for maximal response. All those in the treatment room, including the patient, will need to wear goggles or protective eyewear. The entire treatment will take around twenty to thirty minutes. Some patients can experience a mild amount of discomfort. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed, and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear slightly darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours to a few days.

How soon will I see results?

After the first Photorejuvenation treatment, the skin will feel smoother and have a more even tone. These are gradual improvements that will become more visible after each treatment. After each session, there will be a decrease in the overall redness and flushing of the skin. Sunspots will fade; pore sizes will shrink, fine lines and wrinkles will steadily decrease in size as the new collagen forms beneath the skin. It is recommended that four treatments or more are performed for optimal results. For some patients, maintenance treatments are beneficial and can be performed annually to help maintain the effect and also to continue to improve the skin. These improvements will continue to increase with each treatment.
