Reverse the signs of sun damage.

Photofacial treatments are ideal for reversing sun damage, spots, and hyper-pigmentation of the skin. The treatment delivers heat to the dermis where pigment sits under the skin.

The laser used for this treatment breaks up all those clusters of pigmented cells and over the next 4 to 5 days the pigments start to exit the skin, unveiling a smooth, spot-free complexion.

Look & Feel More Radiant & Energized

Our Photofacial treatment is an all round winner for promoting healthier skin as well as addressing specific conditions such as rosacea, acne scars, skin tone & textural concerns, pigmentation and aging skin.

What to Expect

We perform a detailed consultation using 3D technology to ensure you are a candidate for a Photofacial. During your treatment, protective eye wear will be used to ensure your safety.

We start by using a protective gel on the treatment area. During the procedure, the laser will emit heat and you’ll feel zero to minimal pain.

After the treatment, it can take 4-5 days to heal during which you should avoid direct sun light and apply sunscreen whenever you go outside.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still not sure? Read our FAQ’s below.

Is Photofacial treatment safe?

Photofacials are one of the safest light-based treatments available, with little or no pain. The light pulses feel similar to a light "snap" from a rubber band and there have been few reported long-term side effects. Any post-treatment side effects dissipate within a few hours to a week and include redness, minor swelling or inflammation.

How do I prepare for the treatment?

It is best to stay out of direct sunlight and refrain from using tanning beds and any medications that make you more sensitive to light. During your initial consultation a clinical aesthetician will advise you on how to best prepare for the procedure.

When will I see results?

Results can be seen from a few hours to a day post-treatment. Improvements will be noticeable more and more, but your experience may differ depending on your skin type and the condition(s) you are treating.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally 3-5 sessions are required and it depends on the severity of your problem area and its location. One of our clinical aestheticians will be able to assess the number of treatments required to achieve your desired results.
