Photofacials are performed with a laser and remove sunspots, sun damage, scars and the like. A gel is placed on the desired location, which is followed by a laser treatment. While receiving the treatment, the laser will feel like a rubber band snapping on your skin. The BBL laser has a chilled hand piece making this the most comfortable photofacial laser available. The areas of skin that have been treated will turn darker in color and your skin may be slightly red for a bit. These initial effects can easily be covered up with makeup and won’t last long. After several days, the darkened spots will simply fall off, leaving your skin looking like new.
Our aesthetic team recommends this procedure be performed in a series of four treatments to ensure most of the damage has been lifted resulting in your skin looking its best. Photofacials are not limited to just the face, but can be performed all over the body anywhere skin damage is present.
