Photofacial

What is a photofacial

Photofacial treatments reduce pigmented lesions, redness and broken capillaries. Using the GentleMax Pro® device, unwanted melanin is absorbed by laser light, which breaks down the skin’s pigment in that area without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. Photofacial's are only safe on skin types 1-3 and some skin type 4's. If you do not qualify for a Photofacial we have other options we can discuss.


Usually by day 7 after treatment, your body’s own “clean up” system completely eliminates those shattered melanin particles. After this, there will be little or no trace of those spots or spidery veins you once had. The GentleMax Pro® Photofacial treatment also improves skin texture through collagen stimulation. 


One treatment is very effective but sometimes additional treatments are needed. This service should be done in the winter and by someone that wears sunscreen daily for a couple weeks prior to treatment. 


Post treatment, the dark spots will get darker and flake off usually within 7-10 days. Make-up is allowed after. Also a post treatment skincare is recommended for a week and available for purchase.
