PhotoFacial Treatment

What is a PhotoFacial Treatment?

A PhotoFacial Treatment is a series of gentle pulsed light treatments intended to improve the appearance of sun damaged and aged skin, as well as reduce redness and flushing. PhotoFacial treatments result in a more youthful-appearing skin.

How does PhotoFacial work?

An intense light is emitted in a series of gentle pulses over the skin at intervals of approximately three weeks for a series of five treatments. This special light which is different than laser treatments emits light over many wavelengths allowing the light to penetrate to all the levels of the skin where abnormal and easily dilated vessels can be found. Lasers produce only a single wavelength of light and are limited in depth of penetration and what they can treat.

How much improvement will I see with PhotoFacial?

Typically 75-95%, on average 90% improvement is seen in most patients.

Are there any other conditions that can be treated with the PhotoFacial?

Yes, PhotoFacial treatments will also help patients who suffer from photo-aging of the skin, pigmentation from sun exposure (Age Spots), irregularities of skin texture, reduces large pores and dark circles around the eyes and helps reduce fine lines, especially around the eyes and mouth.

Are there any contraindications to this procedure?

Yes, it is not indicated in patients with connective tissue disease or auto immune disorders. PhotoFacial is not recommended during pregnancy or recently sun-tanned skin. It cannot be used on patients taking Accutane or for six months after stopping Accutane. The procedure is not usually done on patients with active acne cysts and large pustules. The same is true for highly active rosacea. Most photosensitive medications such as antibiotics, anti anxiety, sulfa drugs, birth control pills and anti-hypertensive medications are not a contraindication. Care must be taken in patients who get fever blister attacks on the face. An anti-herpes medication can be taken thus avoiding the problem.

PhotoFacial Procedure. Regain Control of your Body!


Photofacial treatments utilize the latest advances in laser technology to help treat everything from sun damaged skin to rosacea, age spots, premature wrinkles, pigment problems, bags under the eyes, and large pores on the face, neck, and chest. Photofacial (aka fotofacial or photo facial) treatments center around the patented Florescent Pulsed Light system, which penetrates deep below the skin's surface to help start the production of new collagen and other connective tissues. This process leaves the skin rejuvenated and smooth, starting from the very first treatment.

The typical  Photofacial treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and they are typically scheduled across three week intervals. Most patients need between 5-8 total treatments to get the best results. The actual Photofacial session itself can be somewhat painful for some, as the feeling of the laser beam on the skin is usually akin to that of a snapped rubber band. However, the pain usually subsides very quickly after treatment, as is rarely anything more than mild

What's the difference between ablative and non-ablative laser skin treatments?

Traditional full-face laser skin resurfacing is an ablative process that uses carbon dioxide and/or an erbuium: YAG laser to remove the entire outer skin layer, or epidermis, and portions of the underlying skin layer, or dermis. Ablative procedures involve a one- to two-week recovery period with swelling, oozing and crusting of the skin, as well as discomfort.

By contrast, an IPL photofacial is a non-ablative treatment method that does not visibly disrupt the outer skin layer, and thus involves little or no downtime.
