What Is A PhotoFacial?
NYC PhotoFacials are an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably improve your skin’s texture, tone and color. Through a non-invasive method of photo-rejuvenation, NYC PhotoFacials treats photo-aged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries. PhotoFacial helps restore a more youthful appearance, leaving skin clearer and healthy looking without any downtime.
How Do PhotoFacials Work?
PhotoFacials utilize a non-laser medical device that delivers a series of gentle pulses of visible light onto the surface of your skin. In a series of treatments, pulses of visible light target the surface of your skin to effectively eliminate redness, broken capillaries, brown spots, sun damage, large pores, fine lines, rosacea and melasma conditions. Upon assessing the degree of skin damage, specific settings are selected by a certified technician to customize your New York PhotoFacial treatment for best results. Some patients opt for chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatments in conjunction with PhotoFacial treatments to enhance results.
What Areas Can PhotoFacials Treat?
Virtually any part of your body with uneven skin tone, diffuse redness, or sun and age spots can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders and arms are the most popular areas for PhotoFacial treatment because they typically have the most sun exposure. Discrete brown spots, excessively ruddy complexions and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to PhotoFacial treatments as well.
What Happens During The PhotoFacials Treatment?
During your PhotoFacial treatment, the laser is used to rejuvenate the targeted area. Upon determining an appropriate PhotoFacial treatment plan for the skin conditions being treated, we will create a customized regiment just for you.
How Many PhotoFacial Treatments Will I Need?
On average, 4 to 6 PhotoFacial treatments are recommended, scheduled at three-week intervals. Each Long Island, Queens &Manhattan PhotoFacial session usually lasts about 20 minutes, with patients returning to normal activity immediately afterwards.
What Happens After My PhotoFacial Treatment?
Immediately following a NYC PhotoFacial treatment, you may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin, which typically subsides within a couple of hours. Signs of sun damage and age spots temporarily darken but over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off leaving your mottled complexion will clear.
When Will I See Results?
Many patients see significant improvement within two to three weeks of their PhotoFacials treatment. Your complexion will be clearer and younger looking. You notice a major difference of PhotoFacial before and after. PhotoFacial provides gradual, natural improvement with excellent long-term results. You will notice a reduction in redness, flushing and dilated capillaries and your skin will look healthier as sun damage, fine lines, pore size, freckling and irregular pigmentation is minimized. Results from a full series of New York PhotoFacial treatments usually last for a year or more.
Will The Spots And Redness Reappear Over Time?
Over time new spots may appear if there is sufficient sun exposure; these too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and excessive redness.
Are Patients Satisfied With Their PhotoFacial Results?
Very much so. In fact, PhotoFacial treatments are recognized for a high measure of patient satisfaction. Patients are very pleased with treatment results because the NYC PhotoFacials process treats the full face, neck,chest or hands, rather than addressing a single isolated area or imperfection.
