Sun Damage After PhotoFacial

Photofacial treatments use Intense Pulsed Light to reduce or eliminate blemishes in the face, neck, hands, and body.  This gentle, non-invasive procedure improves the cosmetic appearance of the skin and treats conditions such as rosacea, spider veins, skin imperfections caused by the sun, “age spots,” and uneven sun damaged skin. Significant improvement is seen with each treatment, but a series of treatments are recommended for optimal results. The Photofacial is a procedure that will eliminate or greatly reduce the affects of decades of sun exposure and the natural passage of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Photofacial?
A Photofacial is a series of light-based treatments that reduces imperfections on the surface of the skin.  These imperfections include brown spots, freckles, red spots, sun damage and facial vessels.

How long will the results of a Photofacial last?
The results of a Photofacial will last for months to years.  We strongly recommend sun block and sun avoidance as much as possible to preserve the results.

Will being out in the sun ruin a Photofacial?
Sunlight is what causes most of the damage to our skin.  The more sun you get, the more damage will recur.  There is simply no such thing as a healthy tan.

What skin imperfections can a Photofacial address?
Imperfections that are commonly treated with a Photofacial include: freckles, red spots, age spots, broken blood vessels, spider veins and uneven skin color.

How many Photofacial treatments will I need?
Fair-skinned individuals with mild to moderate damage generally get a very good result with three to five treatments.  Individuals with moderate to severe sun damage may benefit from more than five Photofacial treatments.  Once the initial series of Photofacial treatments are completed, clients may benefit from occasional repeat Photofacial treatments to maintain the results as much as possible.

What areas can be treated?
Results are excellent on other body areas, like the back of your hands, chest, neck, arms and legs.

Are there any side effects associated with Photofacials?
Yes.  After each treatment, freckles on the face tend to get very dark.  Over the next several days to weeks these dark freckles flake off, leaving a much improved appearance.  There may also be some pinkness or redness and swelling that resolves within hours to a few days.  On a rare occasion, the client may experience a blister.
