Sage advise is to never give away your age. With today’s amazing anti-aging cosmetic treatments, you don’t have to. But the cumulative effects of the the sun and time itself may have left you with age-revealing spots. These spots are usually harmless but they can definitely give away your age. Age spots typically appear on skin that has had the most sun exposure over the years – the backs of your hands, your shoulders, neck and face.
We have the perfect solution for these age-revealing spots. It’s a non-invasive, breakthrough treatment called IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy, using the the FotoFacial RF optimized pulsed light system. Unlike lasers, the FotoFacial RF uses intense pulsed light and radio frequency energy combined in the same pulse to treat your specific concerns. FotoFacial RF is also effective on rosacea, wrinkles and skin laxity, freckles, birthmarks and spider veins. It is an amazing rejuvenation treatment for your skin.
A FotoFacial RF treatment works by emitting wavelengths of light and radio frequencies that are absorbed by brown spots, veins, and red spots. The area to be treated is prepared with a cool gel. Then a hand-piece is used to gently pulse an intense light over the area, penetrating the skin and destroying the melanin-producing cells. The generated light and frequencies impair the vessels or lesions without damaging the skin’s surface. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes. Because the treatment is gentle, most patients require 5-6 treatments spaced at three-week intervals to see optimum results.
- Immediately after the treatment, you may feel a mild sunburn-like sensation around the treatment site. Your skin will be cleaned and sunscreen applied. Sunscreen of at least SPF45 or greater must be worn for at least a month following the treatment.
- Healing begins immediately. The spots may darken before they flake off or are absorbed by the body. Discomfort is minimal, there is no downtime, and most of our patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately.
