Photorejuvenation or Fotofacial is a procedure that uses a laser or intense pulsed light system to lessen wrinkles, blemishes, rosacea, pore size and sun damage. Photorejuvenation improves the skin by working beneath the epidermis to increase collagen and tighten the skin.
The skin is cleansed with a mild cleanser to remove dirt and oils. Protective eye goggles are placed over the eyes to protect them from the bright laser light. Treatment consists of covering the facial area with the light handpiece all over the face. Another pass is done over areas with vessels and age spots. Patients experience mild discomfort through the procedure. After the treatment you may experience a tingly, itching for 24-48 hours. The skin may appear blotchy or red during this time as well. Avoid direct sun exposure and wear a thin coat of sunscreen when outdoors. The best part is no down time! You can return to work or your scheduled activity immediately after having a treatment.
