What is FotoFacial?
FotoFacial treatment is a light based therapy to rejuvenate skin. Unlike a laser which generates a beam of intense light of a single wavelength, FotoFacial creates an intense pulsed light (IPL) beam across a range of wavelengths. As the light contains a broad spectrum, it is absorbed by different chromophores (light absorbing molecules) within the skin, breaking up the pigments. This technology enables treatments of both brown, melanin pigments as well as red vascular lesions.
FotoFacial has been proven to treat vascular lesions (red & pink spots), reduce brown spots, age spots, skin redness, freckles, discoloration, facial spider veins and uneven skin tones caused by sun damage. This non-invasive procedure also plumps the skin by stimulating new collagen production. FotoFacial can markedly improve texture, tone, color and overall smoothness of the skin, with no downtime.
FotoFacial can also be combined with Levulan to reverse pre-cancerous skin changes associated with sun exposure. This creates greater overall skin rejuvenation, but there is moderate downtime compared with FotoFacial alone.
