FotoFacial® is a term used at Laser MD Med Spa to describe the popular, FDA-approved skin treatment that implements intense pulsed-light technology through a handheld flash-lamp to treat such skin conditions as brown spots, age spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, rosacea, facial redness, flushing, hyper-pigmentation, and unwanted freckles. In addition, FotoFacial also provides a youthful glow and fuller look by promoting collagen growth over time.
In other words, the FotoFacial is an effective and convenient all-around skin-rejuvenating treatment that lasts.
This advanced skin technology works by delivering bright pulses of visible and infra-red light at very high energy levels through a handheld device. These heat pulses shrink pigmented skin cells and visible vessels, leaving the skin smooth, healthy, and younger-looking.
The FotoFacial procedure takes roughly 30 to 45 minutes for each treatment. For best results, three to four treatments at one-month intervals are recommended. The light and heat created from the flash-lamp generate only minimal discomfort.
Immediately following the pulsed-light therapy, the skin may appear red and flushed, with visible tiny capillaries improved and any brown spots appearing darker. Some patients will experience minimal swelling for a few days, and those who have significant sun damage may experience several days of dead skin cell loss. Aside from that, there is essentially no downtime or recovery needed after having a FotoFacial.
