Skin Rejuvenation Photofacial

Skin Rejuvenation Photofacial

Used to improve the appearance of sun damaged and aged skin, a Photofacial is a series of gentle pulsed light treatments that enhance and rejuvenate the skin, giving you healthy, more youthful skin. A Photofacial can also reduce facial and neck redness, flushing, and discoloration.

A Photofacial is performed with the Palomar  Intense Pulsed Light, which painlessly emits multiple wavelengths of light to penetrate all levels of the skin to improve tone and texture. Quick and effective, Photofacials often take no more than thirty minutes, leaving you plenty of time to show off your rich new skin tone.

While Photofacials are exceptional at treating sun damaged skin, this treatment is also approved for irregularities in skin texture, elimination of blood vessels, improvement of mild acne scars, and the reduction of large pores and dark circles around the eyes. Along with these conditions, this procedure performs wonderfully for those patients looking to diminish fine lines, especially around the eyes and mouth.

The LUX G green light laser hand piece has an output spectrum within the green wavelengths of light. It targets both oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin in the blood. The green light wavelength is also highly absorbed by melanin, the pigment responsible for tanning and for producing brown spots on the skin. The treatment of vascular lesions(broken capillaries and rosacea) and the removal of pigmented lesions(age-spots, sun damage, etc.) can now be accomplished rapidly and comfortably using the LUX G hand piece.

Treating the pigmented lesion with the pulsed light results in heating the melanin. the damaged lesion is then naturally sloughed as the skin exfoliates. Similar results are seen in the treatment of vascular lesions. The absorption of the light in the blood and the resultant thermal action causes damage to the blood vessel which contributes to its degeneration and disappearance.

It is recommended to compliment this treatment with a Medical Microderm follow up one week post treatment.  For the most corrective need cases, more than one treatment may be needed.  Generally three to six treatments satisfy corrective need.
