Time for a FotoFacial?

FotoFacialDo age spots, wrinkles and redness make you look older than you feel? Get a picture-perfect complexion with a FotoFacial. This innovative treatment is a convenient and non-invasive method to obtain more profound results than traditional facials.

The FotoFacial difference

Conventional facials deal with imperfections through extractions, which work on the surface and may be painful. In contrast, a FotoFacial gets to the base of the imperfections through intense pulsed light (IPL) that penetrates the deepest layers of skin, leaving the surface layers untouched.
This method is also an effective solution if you have a delicate or sensitive complexion. Since the surface of the skin remains untouched, the procedure is gentle enough for all skin types.

How does the treatment work?

FotoFacials are so effective because they make use of your body’s own systems. As the IPL moves over the targeted area, it generates heat that is absorbed by the dilated vessels or pigmentation causing the imperfections. The damage triggers the natural healing process which ultimately results in the lesion flaking off or being absorbed back into the body.

FotoFacials are safe and convenient

A typical FotoFacial treatment can be completed in as little as 15 minutes and no more than 45 minutes based on the size of the targeted area. The first step is cleansing the area and applying a cool gel. The IPL creates a mild sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band.
At the conclusion of the session, the skin is again cleansed and a sunscreen is applied. A cool compress may be used for extra-sensitive complexions, but pain and side effects are minimal.

The finished result

A series of five treatments is recommended for best results. After each one, you skin becomes smoother and more even-toned. Over the course of your treatment you will see redness, fine lines and pore size gradually diminish.
