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:
Sun and Smoke Damage
Mild Acne Scars
Pigmented Freckles and Age spots
Red Flushing skin
Rosacea & Redness
Fine lines & Wrinkles
Using the advanced non-laser Intense Pulse Light technology, 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.
If you're considering a Photofacial treatment – or any other treatment, including Botox, Restylane and Laser Hair Removal – we invite you to schedule a free consultation.
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 does the treatment work?
An intense light is emitted in a series of gentle pulses over the entire face at intervals of approximately three weeks for a series of five treatments. PhotoFacial treatment is different than laser treatments as it emits light over many wavelengths allowing it to penetrate all the layers of the skin where abnormal easily dilated vessels can be found. In contrast, lasers produce only a single wavelength of light that is limited in its depth of penetration and in the treatment results it is able to produce.
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 anaesthesia. 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
• 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 Natural Healing Centre. Other popular treatments include Botox injections, Restylane injections and Hair Removal.
Will I need additional treatments?
After your initial series of 3-5 treatments you may require an additional follow-up treatment in 2 or more years. In the meanwhile, we will educate you on proper skincare techniques that will be specifically tailored to your skin type and condition. Following basic skincare techniques following your initial treatment will greatly reduce the likelihood for the need of future treatments.
