Unless you are really really tan or freshly tan, there are virtually no contraindications to this treatment and the benefits are numerous.

A photo facial is a cosmetic treatment designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin. As most of us age, we begin to see visible signs of sun damage, time, lifestyle choices, and genetic predisposition appearing on our complexion. This may present as freckles, rosacea, wrinkles, broken capillaries, dark spots, blotchy skin color, redness of the face and neck, large pore size and uneven pigmentation.

Photo rejuvenation is a light laser treatment using intense pulsed light or a low laser setting which corrects these conditions while stimulating collagen structure. We use a 1064mm laser which stimulates fibroblasts and collagen reformation which has been shown to gradually reduce wrinkles, photodamage, skin laxity and pore size The Aerolase 1064 mm laser is FDA cleared for wrinkle reduction on all skin types; thanks to its MicroPulse 1064 technology. This laser uniquely provides pain free photo rejuvenation and skin tightening without skin cooling or contact to the skin by the hand piece. Most other lasers in this category are ultra long pulsed which increase the cooling time of the skin and increased thermal damage and subsequent “downtime”.
Dramatic improvements can be accomplished with little or no “downtime” and minimal or no discomfort. The perfect “lunchtime” treatment!  Sunblock and make-up may be applied immediately after the treatment.  And little to no preparation is required.  Sun exposure must be avoided 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks post treatment.  And in most cases the skin actually continues to look better and improve in appearance in the 2 weeks following the treatment as the light continues to work in the cells for 2 weeks.  For Optimal results, a series of 5 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart is recommended.

What are the benefits of having a Photo Facial?
Improves overall appearance of skin tone.
