There are many different treatment options for treating the effects of the sun and ageing such as redness, broken capillaries and brown spots. However, if you’re looking for a quick treatment option with little to no down time, FotoFacial may be right for you. Because of how well this treatment works and because of the lack of downtime, Fotofacial is one of our most popular treatments. The FotoFacial also referred to as Intense Pulsed Light or IPL sends intense pulses of light into the skin. This FDA approved procedure is safe to use on the face, neck, and body. Before treatment, we will apply a numbing cream to the affected area this makes the procedure not hurt at all. Depending on how many areas you’re looking to treat, the procedure can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Most people will receive a series of 5 treatments waiting about 3 weeks in between treatments.

Throughout the next few days following treatment, you can expect any brown spots to flake off. Redness and irritation will be extremely minimal following the procedure. For best results, multiple procedures may be necessary. When you leave the office your skin will be pink or red. Most people can be back at work the next day.
