Non-Invasive. No Downtime. Immediate Results.Do you think that the reflection you see in the mirror each morning matches the way you feel? Many patients wish that there was a safe, easy and quick way to get rid of their red complexion, fine wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and large pores. Photofacial is one of our most exciting anti-aging services. Photofacial of the face and body produces even-toned skin that looks more youthful. Photofacial can erase skin damage and treat a variety of skin conditions, such as:

Broken Capillaries            Sun and Smoke Damage
Veins                              Mild Acne Scars
Enlarged Pores                Dull Complexions
Uneven Pigmentation       Pigmented Freckles and Age spots
Red Flushing skin            Rosacea & Redness
Liver Spots                     Fine lines & Wrinkles

Using the advanced non-laser Intense Pulse Light technology, your PURE medi-spa Medical Aesthetician or Nurse gently delivers precise amounts of light energy through the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased and the redness associated with rosacea and redness can be dramatically reduced. Photofacial treatments restore a more youthful appearance and improve skin texture without any downtime – allowing you to return to work or leisure activities immediately.

 

What results can I expect?

After only one treatment, your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother look and feel. Sunspots will fade. Pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size. These improvements will steadily increase with each treatment. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive decrease in redness with every treatment.

 

What will recovery be like?

Post-Photo Facial discomfort is almost nonexistent. After treatment with most light systems, the treated skin may appear a little flushed and capillaries may seem to be more visible. The flushed look soon fades away, and the capillaries appear to vanish, leaving the skin looking younger. It's that simple.

 

How do Photofacial treatments work?

Today's new light technology delivers precise dosages of energy to the skin. During your treatment, light energy is gently delivered through a special handpiece to the targeted area. Levels of energy specific to your treatment are used to maximize your improvement. Once delivered, the light energy is absorbed by the targeted damaged tissue. After any treatment, you should follow your home care instructions, avoid any harsh skin cleansers and always use sunscreen.

 

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the area treated, most clients need a series of approximately five treatments. Treatments usually take from 15 to 30 minutes. Treatments are spaced out at approximately three week intervals.

 

Do Photofacial hurt?

Most patients describe the sensation to be like the snap of a rubber band on the skin as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Some patients opt to have a topical anesthesia. After treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

 

Who are the best candidates for IPL Photofacial Rejuvenation?

The best candidates have:

Red, flushed faces or rosacea
Sun-damaged skin
Hyperpigmentation
Enlarged pores

 

Are Photofacial treatments safe?

Yes! Advanced light systems have been used safely for millions of treatments worldwide. These systems treat only the targeted tissues, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. However, some bruising or redness may occur.Photofacial Treatments are just one of the many excellent non-surgical treatments offered by PURE medi-spa. Other popular treatments include Botox injections, Restylane injections and Laser Hair Removal.
