Get What is a Photofacial or Photobody?
Photofacial (or Photobody) produces a brighter, youthful, and potentially less blemished looking skin. It is a laser treatment that targets vascular (“reds”) and pigmented lesions (“browns”), such as freckles, acne, age spots, sun damage skin, scars, spider veins, hematomas, and rosacea. Sometimes hair reduction can occur in the treatment area, too!
Just Interested In Spider Vein Treatments?
Our laser coagulates and destroys deep, cosmetically unacceptable blood vessels and spider veins without the use of chemicals or needles. This treatment is performed in 15 minute increments per treatment area. This treatment is not intended for varicose veins.
Is It Painful?
Everyone’s tolerance is unique, and some clients find it similar to other laser treatments. We are happy to do a test spot so you will know what to expect. To further enhance the comfort of your treatment, we have the patient control the Zimmer (our AMAZING cooling device!).
Following treatment, most patients experience a sunburned feeling and may be light to bright pink in the treatment area, but this will fade in a few hours.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
It takes approximately 3 – 5 treatments, spaced about 4 weeks apart, to achieve best results (depending on your skin concerns).
What Do I Need To Do Before My First Appointment?
Stay out of the sun, remove any “artificial” tan, and shave the area to be treated.
