PhotoFacial is Non-Surgical, Requires No Time Off, Gives You Quick Improvement!

photofacial-torontoDuring this skin renewing treatment, a doctor uses a small device with a smooth side made of glass. The device is handheld, and it gives off a strong light that is broad-spectrum, similar to the light from the sun but without damaging UV and UVB rays. The treatment this way gives two separate health-renewing components to your skin. These are: oxygen and light. Your skin needs these two factors to erase sun damage and over-pigmentation in the skin, and leave your skin brighter and more even. The process eliminates a range of skin issues as well, like broken capillaries (tiny blood vessels), smoke damage and damage from sun exposure, and fine lines and wrinkles. PhotoFacial easily treats all of these afflictions, so it is easy to see why so many people choose this as their favorite anti-aging treatment!

Erase Hyper-Pigmentation, Dark Spots and Redness Easily with PhotoFacial

PhotoFacial’s main goal is to erase areas on the skin of over-pigmentation, which is where you see brown or red spots. These spots are naturally caused by the aging process, and can also be caused by sun damage or skin conditions like acne and rosacea. The technology that PhotoFacial uses is an ultra-bright light, which actually finds these dark spots in every layer of the skin, from the top layer to the bottom layer, and erases them. They are then absorbed into the body or they appear on the very surface of the skin and come off after a period of time. This device is not a laser, and it is not invasive like many treatments for the same problems. Minimal recovery time is needed, and you can return to your daily activities with immediately healthier and fresher looking skin. Several sessions may be required to achieve optimal results*.

Minimize Pores and Wrinkles With the PhotoFacial Technology

In addition to all of that, PhotoFacial can also help minimize the appearance of undesirable large pores and unsightly wrinkles. The high intensity of the light produced by the PhotoFacial handheld device actually works to stimulate your body’s own natural collagen. The light, when it enters the layers of the skin, signals your skin to produce its own collagen, which leads to the skin becoming more youthful, more firm, and renewed. With PhotoFacial, you can turn back time and regain the youthful appearance that you desire*.

Get Smoother And More Even Skin

PhotoFacial is the ideal treatment for anyone looking for results of firm skin that has more consistent coloring and fewer fine lines*. A PhotoFacial treatment is typically done over several sessions, and these sessions usually take about 20 to 45 minutes each. Before the procedure starts, you will be give protective glasses to protect your eyes from the very bright light that is used during treatment. During treatment, you may feel minor stinging sensations, like a slight snapping of a rubber band against the skin. This happens as the broad-spectrum light from the PhotoFacial handheld device breaks up the unwanted blemishes and discoloration, which leaves only your natural radiance shining through.

PhotoFacial Frequently Asked Questions

What Exactly is PhotoFacial?

PhotoFacial does not use laser technology, but is instead a non-invasive procedure that utilizes broad-spectrum light to break up dark spots and smooth our pores and wrinkles and other imperfections in the skin. This light is transferred to the skin using a hand-piece, which has a glass panel that is held against the surface of the skin to deliver the light.

How Many PhotoFacial Treatments Are Needed to See Results?

Usually, four to six treatments are recommended. These are done as a series, and performed at 3-week intervals. The sessions do not have any necessary downtime, so you can go right back to normal activities immediately after each treatment. Touch-ups and follow-up treatments are usually desired by patients in order to maintain the results longer*.

How Does the PhotoFacial Technology Work?

Broad-spectrum light is delivered to the area of skin that has been targeted for treatment through a handheld device. The light is transmitted to the skin in a series of little pulses of light. These light pulsations enter the skin layers and are absorbed into the small blood vessels or spots of over-pigmentation. The light produces heat because of the energy that is being absorbed, and this heat damages the targeted blood vessels or dark spot, and also signals your skin to begin its own natural healing process. The spot that has been targeted will then either be absorbed into your body and disappear, or harden and flake off over a short time.

What is the Treatment Like?

Before PhotoFacial treatment, the technician will apply a cool gel to the area that is going to be targeted. You will also be given dark glasses that will protect your eyes against the bright broad-spectrum light. To begin, the technician will place the smooth glass panel of the handheld device against the surface of your skin, and will begin the process of delivering gentle pulses of light to the area. During this time, slight stinging may be felt, which is described as similar to the feeling of a rubber band snapped against the skin. The treatment typically takes around 20-45 minutes, and treatments are given in series of multiple treatment procedures.

What Are the Results of PhotoFacial?

After you receive a series of PhotoFacial treatments, a noticeable change will be visible in your skin. The undesired pigmentation will decrease significantly, and the overall skin tone will have evened out. You can also plan on seeing redness, broken blood vessels, and other unusual pigmentation begin to gradually decrease over time. Large pores and fine lines will also decrease in appearance gradually. The Photofacial results continue to improve with more treatments*.

Is PhotoFacial Used to Treat Rosacea?

Rosacea is a type of skin condition that caused skin to be red because of dilated capillaries and insistent flushing. This condition can also cause issues with blemishes and blisters on the cheeks and on the nose area. PhotoFacial technology does help in the treatment of this very bothersome condition, by treating the blood vessels and reducing redness without causing damage to the healthy skin surrounding the affected area. This greatly minimizes the amount of redness and flushing, and it is effective long-term*.

Can It Be Used for Broken Blood Vessels?

Throughout or bodies, there is an expansive network of tiny vessels and veins. The tiny veins are call capillaries, and they are susceptible to damage due to aging, trauma, lifestyle factors, and over-exposure to the sun. All of these things can cause a person’s capillaries to burst, which causes them to appear on the skin as red blemishes or lines. PhotoFacial reduces or even eliminates these dilated vessels and damaged veins by removing nearly all traces of the damaged capillaries.
