The PhotoFacial is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment designed to rejuvenate skin on the face, neck, and décolleté. It improves skin tone and skin imperfections associated with aging and with sun damage. Using three light-based procedures, the Photofacial produces outstanding results safely and effectively.
The Lime Light Facial treats:
- sun spots,
- age spots,
- brown spots
- acne scarring
- tiny veins
- diffuse skin redness or rosacea
Combining Laser Genesis, the 1064 Yag, and IPL (Intense Pulse Light), this treatment is an excellent way to achieve or maintain younger looking skin.
How does the treatment work?
An intense light is applied as a series of gentle pulses to the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or lesions, and the body begins a natural healing process. Lesions darken before they flake off or are absorbed by the body. The 1064 provides volumetric heating to increase collagen production.
How many treatments will I need?
For optimal results, a series of five treatments are recommended. Some patients see significant improvement with two to three treatments while others might require more. Follow-up treatments may be needed once a year to maintain desired results.
What are the benefits of PhotoRejuvenation?
Improved appearance due to sun spots, age spots, dull complexions, uneven pigmentation, large pores, sun-damaged skin, and early signs of aging. Improves red flushing skin, Rosacea, and broken capillaries. Enjoy smoother skin that has a more even tone. Minor discomfort during treatment. Immediately resume regular activities.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown-pigmented spots may appear darker, and capillaries may be more visible. In rare instances, temporary swelling and/or blistering can occur. Limiting sun exposure for several weeks before and after treatment will greatly minimize the risk of complications.
What improvements will I see?
Patients have a high degree of satisfaction with their results. After successive treatments, the skin will feel smoother and appear to have a more even tone. Maintenance treatments are recommended.
PhotoRejuvenation/Photofacial in treating rosacea
As many as seventy million Americans have undesirable redness and/or sun damaged skin. Sun exposure, alcohol, medications, stress, and aging are common causes of rosacea. Rosacea is a common skin condition characterized by redness and flushing skin. PhotoRejuvenation treatments control flushing and, in many cases, reduce the need for topical creams and antibiotics.
