What is FotoFacial laser skin resurfacing?
This laser skin resurfacing treatment uses intense pulses of light energy combined with radiofrequency energy to reduce the visible signs of age, sun damage, and other skin imperfections. The radiofrequency energy heats the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production within the body and tighten and firm the skin in the treated area. FotoFacial treatment sessions typically last between 30 minutes to one hour depending on the area and condition being treated. This non-invasive treatment has little to no downtime associated with it and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after a treatment session.
Conditions that can be effectively treated by FotoFacial include:
- Port Wine stains
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Spider veins
- Hyperpigmentation and other skin discoloration
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients can achieve optimal results with a series of three to six treatment sessions spaced about four to eight weeks apart. The number of treatment sessions needed can vary from patient to patient depending on the condition being treated and the patient’s goals for treatment. Prior to your first treatment session, we will review your skin type, skin concerns, and desired results and develop a customized treatment plan to best fit your needs.
When will I see results?
In the days following a laser skin resurfacing treatment session, the treated skin may darken, and pigmented spots may become more prominent. This is a part of the treatment process and will resolve as the body works to heal the treated skin. Most patients begin to experience a noticeable improvement in their skin within ten days of a treatment session, and the most visible results of FotoFacial treatments typically develop within three to eight months of treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve your desired results. Results may vary.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients may experience some mild redness and/or swelling in the treated area following a FotoFacial treatment session. If you are using this skin rejuvenation treatment to reduce the appearance of ruptured blood vessels, the treated blood vessels may turn a darker red or black color in the first few days following a treatment session. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own within a few days of treatment.
