Fractional CO2 +IPL and RF Treatments

 Photofacial 

Unlike other lasers, the Photofacial combines intense pulsed light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF) into one non-invasive treatment—sending two types of energy into your skin. The intense pulsed light targets brown spots, blood vessels, redness, and blemishes and allows us to treat skin at multiple levels. It can also help focus the radio frequency energy that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for a more effective treatment. The appearance of fine to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities of the skin are diminished.*

Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing with DOT Therapy 

As we age, production of collagen and elastin (proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth) slows down, often resulting in sagging skin on the face, neck and body. Fractional CO2 with DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) Therapy is an FDA-approved technology that uses a “dot” technique to create microscopic laser perforations beneath the skin’s outermost layer. This triggers the body’s own natural production of new collagen and elastin resulting in firmer, clearer, rejuvenated skin. “Fractional” refers to the fact that only a fraction of the skin is treated by producing columns of heat and leaving the surrounding dermal tissue intact.*


* A pre-procedure appointment and prepping the skin 4-6 weeks prior to treatment is necessary

Best For

Best For: Hyperpigmentation; age/brown spots; fine lines/wrinkles; enlarged pores. 

Results

Results: Some patients see an initial effect right away, but significant results generally appear over 2 – 3 months as the new collagen that is being produced works to lift, tighten and smooth your skin. 

Downtime

Downtime: It takes approximately 7 – 10 days for skin to heal completely. Days 1 through 3 there is swelling and possible pin-point bleeding; Days 4 through 6 the swelling will likely have subsided and by the sixth day many patients are able to apply a post procedure foundation that promotes healing and provide complete coverage.

Possible Side Effects

Possible Side Effects: Skin will have the appearance of being sun burned; you may experience some swelling, burning, and redness.
