Photo Facial (IPL)
Individuals with all skin types who desire improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, facial spider veins, blemishes and brown spots of the face. Individuals who have sun-damaged skin, aging skin, oily skin with enlarged pores and acne scarring are candidates.
Description of Procedure
FotoFacial™ treatments involve the use of pulsed light and Radiofrequency energy gently directed at fine wrinkles, pink discoloration, rosacea and brown discoloration. The treatment stimulates the production of your own collagen and after approximately 5-6 treatments, the fine wrinkles appear smoother. The pulsed light also fades spider veins, brown spots and sun-damaged skin. Photofacial Chicago produces a smoother, youthful, vital and less-blemished looking skin. This action works equally effectively on all colours of skin.
Healing and Downtime
Most patients have no side effects. Unlike laser resurfacing, FotoFacials™ attack the deeper layer of your skin under the epidermis (outer layer). There is no redness, oozing or cleansing. Following treatment, some may find the skin to be light pink (flushed). This fades within a few hours. The skin feels soft and even. Studies show fine wrinkles and blemishes improve by 50-75% of patients after 4-6 treatments. The patient can reapply makeup and return to work, activities, etc. immediately after treatment. It takes approximately 6 treatments to achieve best results, depending on the skin type and condition.
