IPL Photofacials

Fotofacial RF is a photofacial treatment that utilizes Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat a myriad of cosmetic skin concerns on the face and body.

Beyond correcting discoloration, IPL can also improve the appearance of your skin, removing the blemishes and adding glow. It can improve your skin tone and texture, reduce the size of your pores and give your skin a more youthful and radiant look. What’s more, this treatment is absolutely safe on your face and skin.


Frequently Asked Questions

When will I see results?
The benefits appear gradually in the two weeks following the treatment. 

Treatment time
It is a 30 minute procedure in which the intense pulses will penetrate deep into the skin causing blood vessels and collagen to constrict and reduce age lines and redness.

Possible side effects
A minimal short minimal discomfort exists during the procedure while all of the redness and swelling disappear immediately after the treatment.

The benefits appear gradually in the two weeks following the treatment. 

How long will results last?
The care for your skin after the treatment will define the lasting time of the result. If your skin gets frequent sun exposure and you don’t use sunscreen or other skin care products the redness and the brow spots will return faster. If appropriate care is taken then your skin will look good with annual maintenance.

Recommended frequency
In order to maintain the growth of the collagen we recommend a treatment every 6 – 12 months. If your skin is pale and red then once or twice per year is the right frequency.

Medications to avoid
You should avoid excessive sun and self-tanners for 2 – 4 weeks before the treatment. It really depends on your medical history and file. One week before the treatment you need to avoid inocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline, Retin-A/Renova, aspirin, ibuprofen, or Aleve.
