Frequently Asked Question
What Is Photo Facial
We use Laser light to penetrate deep into the skin. Laser System photo-rejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a Photo Facial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment. It normally takes about 10-20 days to start to see a difference.
Photo facial Candidates
Laser System Photo-rejuvenation can be used to treat redness caused by hyper-pigmentation, and facial veins, as well as the fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. And if your skin has been discoloured as a result of smoking, alcohol use, or hormonal changes, an Laser System Photo Facial can smooth and refine your complexion. However, certain factors, including dark or deeply tanned skin, may make certain people ineligible for Laser System. We need to have a consultation with you to establish if your skin type is suitable for this treatment, fortunately our Laser System is the latest technology so we can actually treat the darker skin types.
How it works?
A beam of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, flat glass hand piece which is gently placed on the skin. During the treatment, the Laser System wave length is absorbed into the collagen fibers, where it has a heating effect on the tissue which will then encourage new collagen production.
How does it feel?
You may feel a sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band each time the Laser System is applied to the skin, although the Laser System head does have built in cooling so this will take away from any discomfort you may experience in the skin and make the treatment more pleasant.
What to expect?
Immediately following the treatment, your skin may feel quite warm and may have a stinging sensation like sunburnt skin, which will calm down over a couple of hours, this is a desired reaction as we want to successfully heat the skin to the point of having a successful effect on the collagen fibers.
What areas can I treat?
Mainly areas for Photo Facial are the face, neck. Please Note: the desired area for treatment needs to be out of the sun for 4-6 weeks prior treatment and then continually throughout the rest of treatment.
How many treatments are recommended?
We recommend 3-6 treatments for Photo Facial, there is a 2-3 week waiting period between each treatment, but you do often see improvements after each session
