Photolight IPL – FAQ

What is PhotoLightFACIAL?

The PhotoLight is a “non-ablative” treatment for the skin that minimizes the signs of
aging and sun-damage by removal of brown spots, pigment, red veins and the “blush”
of rosecea.

What is “non-ablative”?

A “non-ablative” treatment leaves your skin intact and undamaged. The pulse emits light that passes easily through the upper layers of your skin to the unwanted red and brown pigment underneath. The light is absorbed by these pigments and transformed into heat that damages the irregularities. As an additional benefit, you skin’s collagen framework is enhanced.

When will I see the results?

We recommend about 4-6 treatments every 3 weeks to achieve desired results. Because every skin condition is different, we require a consultation with one of our skin care professionals during which a treatment plan will be discussed.

How long does a treatment take?

A full Photolight treatment only takes 20-30 minutes.

What does it feel like?

It may feel like a rubber band snap on your skin, but the feeling is very tolerable. Unlike most pulsed light systems, no numbing creams or gels may be required.

What can I expect after treatment?

It may feel like a mild sunburn for a few days following the treatment. In some cases, it may look like a superficial burn, and in rare cases, a blister may appear. It is very important to follow all post treatment instructions and to stay out of the sun for at least a 4 week period pre and post treatment to avoid damage to the treated area. If you cannot avoid sun exposure, a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF should be used.

How many treatments can I expect?

We recommend about 4-6 treatments every 3 weeks to achieve desired results. Because every skin condition is different, we require a consultation with one of our skin care professionals during which a treatment plan will be discussed.
