What is a FotoFacial™?
A FotoFacial™, also commonly known as photofacial, is a series of intense pulsed light (IPL), infrared (IR), laser and/or radio frequency (RF) energy all combined in the same pulse.
These pulses are applied in a series of quick and gentle applications over the desired area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels and brown pigmentation. Heat damages the vessel or lesion, and in response to this damage, the body initiates its natural healing process. The lesion will likely darken before it eventually falls off, or the body may absorb it. Treatment can be given in three-week intervals until the desired aesthetic result is achieved.
Who is a FotoFacial™ Candidate?
The most ideal candidates for a FotoFacial™ will have the following:
- Fair skin that has not been tanned
- Skin that has regained a degree of elasticity
- Skin that has pigmentation caused by aging, medication or sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging
- Shallow acne scarring or large pores
- A dissatisfaction with skin’s appearance
- Willingness to maintain a treatment schedule for desired results
