Photofacial Q & A

What is a photofacial?

Photofacials are groundbreaking treatments more and more medical and aesthetics specialists are using to transform their patients’ skin. This treatment requires virtually no downtime and is designed to be comfortable for the patient. And it’s effective in treating a range of skin conditions, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores 
  • Sun damage

And, despite the name, photofacials aren’t just effective for the face. They work anywhere on your body, including your hands, neck, and chest. Spectrum Laser Aesthetics offers this innovative laser-based treatment to help you unlock your best skin. 

How does a photofacial work?

During a photofacial, your Spectrum Laser Aesthetics specialist moves the Astanza ReSmooth laser over your skin. As it moves, it sends wavelengths of intense pulsed light. As the IPL penetrates into the deeper layers of your skin, it does two things. 

First, it targets any darker pigment (like age spots and scars). The pigment absorbs the light energy to the point that it breaks down into tiny fragments. Then, your body naturally processes the broken-down pigment out, leaving you with clearer, more perfect skin. 

Secondly, the IPL photofacial kickstarts your body’s natural healing process. It signals to your body that it needs to make collagen, the protein that gives your skin its support structure. As your body produces new collagen over the coming weeks and months, your skin gets tighter, smoother, and plumper. 

Together, these photofacial benefits deliver more even, more youthful-looking skin. Spectrum Laser Aesthetics offers single photofacials or a series of photofacials, depending on your skin goals. More treatments deliver more impressive results. 

What should I expect during and after a photofacial?

Your photofacial is a quick, noninvasive process. The Astanza ReSmooth laser features an integrated cooling tip so this treatment is comfortable on your skin. Most photofacials last 30 minutes or less. 

Afterward, your skin may be red or tender, similar to the way it feels when you have a sunburn. Even so, you’ll be able to continue with your daily activities immediately. Your skin will feel refreshed, and your results will continue to improve as your body builds collagen post-treatment.
