What are Photo Facial treatments like?
First, we cleanse the area to be treated. Then a thin layer of cooling gel is applied to the treatment area. Photo Facial treatments are accomplished through a delicate hand piece attached to our advanced laser system. When placed against the skin you will feel the cold tip. When the pulse of light energy is administered there is a momentary sensation that is easily tolerated. Treatments take between twenty minutes to a half hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
How many Photo Facial treatments will I need?
Usually, 4-5 treatments are sufficient. Photo Facial treatments are administered every three to four weeks. The number of skin rejuvenation treatments depends on the area treated, your expectations and your goals.
What about the results for Photo Facial treatments?
With a Photo Facial , the results are progressive. With each treatment you will be more pleased. Your skin will look and feel smoother. Your complexion and skin color will begin to look more even. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually smooth out. Dark spots and broken blood vessels will begin to fade away. Since the aging process continues after your treatment, maintenance treatments may prevent the return of your symptoms.
Following your treatment:
After Dr. Potter performs your Facial rejuvenation treatment the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities. Dark spots and small blood vessels may seem a little more noticeable, but they will begin to fade after several days. He may recommend that you use a specially-formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after your Photo Facial treatments. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
