Photofacial Removes Age Spots – Sun Spots – Liver Spots, Pigmentation and Dyschromia
The Science of Light: IPL Helps Restore the Skin’s Youthful Glow There are an overwhelming number of options available to improve the skin’s appearance, from creams and peels to microdermabrasion and laser treatments.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Phototherapy, an innovative and effective treatment to eradicate red facial veins & flushing, improve acne rosacea, treat irregular pigmentation, and reduce fine facial lines. As we age fine facial blood vessels and irregular areas of hyperpigmentation often appear on facial and non-facial skin exposed to sunlight. Wrinkles are caused by a host of factors including loss of collagen and elastin, sun damage, smoking, alcohol use and hormonal changes.
IPL Photofacial refers to the use of intense pulsed light. Also called IPL, to improve the appearance of sun damaged and aged skin, as well as reduce spots and redness, resulting in more youthful-looking skin. IPL Photofacial treatments consistently and predictably improve the texture, tone and color of the skin with little to no down time. IPL also stimulates the growth of collagen, decreases pore size and gives skin a youthful appearance. Any area on the body, such as the chest (decollete), hands, arms, back, and legs can be treated with IPL Photofacial.
The best candidates for this procedure are patients with rosacea, red flushed faces secondary to acne rosacea, facial blood vessels and capillaries, sun damaged skin, pigmented facial spots and enlarged pores.
Age spots, Sun spots and Liver spots can be erased!
Age spots, also called sun spots and liver spots are brown flat spots that are commonly found on sun-exposed skin. They usually don’t appear until middle-age and occur in all nearly all skin types. Age spots are collections of a pigment (called melanin) that have accumulated in the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). Unlike freckles, which darken in the summer and fade in the winter, age spots do not fade.
What causes age spots and sun spots?
Age spots increase with age and with increased sun exposure. They are more common in people who freckle and who burn easily. It is important to know that if you’ve had enough sun to develop age spots, you have a higher risk of developing skin cancer.
IPL For Rosacea:
IPL Photofacial is the best treatment for redness and flushing associated with rosacea. This technology is also highly effective in treating the red lines (telangietasis) that appear when the tiny blood vessels under the skin become enlarged. In addition, IPL treatments can also improve the acne-like pimples associated with rosacea.
Although most patients see a significant improvement in their symptoms following one laser session, several sessions are usually needed to complete the treatment. If you then make the effort to avoid rosacea-aggravating sun exposure (by wearing a strong sunscreen daily), visible blood vessels may not return for years.
What do age spots, sun spots and liver spots look like?
Age spots are flat and vary in size from a small pea to a dime. They usually are somewhat round and have irregular borders. They are found on chronically sun-exposed areas such as the shoulders, upper back, face, forearms and/or the back of hands.
What treatment options are available for spot removal?
The best treatment for age spots for the future is prevention. The key to preventing age spots is sun avoidance and daily sunscreen use. However, for most of us, it is too late for prevention, and there are a number of treatment options available. The best treatment option for age spots is IPL Photo Rejuvenation.
What can I expect after a Photofacial treatment?
Immediately after your Photofacial, you can expect a mild sun burn like sensation that may last for 24 hours. Any areas of broken capillaries or spider veins may stay red for longer. Age and sun spots may darken initially for a few days and then lighten or disappear. Even though a series of IPL treatments is recommended, you will see results with your first treatment within 7-14 days!

Fraxel is one of the latest innovations in aesthetic laser medical technology. Fraxel laser is used for anti-aging, collagen remodeling and non-ablative skin resurfacing and provides a highly effective, predictable and safe non-ablative treatment for patients with acne scarring, brown spots, sun damage and stretch marks. Fraxel laser is the ideal treatment for acne scarring because it is very effective and there is minimal downtime.
Many patients want to look 5 to 10 years younger and and want to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation and acne scarring. The fractionated laser is an excellent device and in many cases is the laser treatment of choice , mild to moderate wrinkles, pigmentation, enlarged pores as well as brown spots and sun damage spots. It also produces a substantial improvement in tone, texture and the overall appearance of the skin.
The Fraxel laser is routinely used to treat photodamage of the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. There is an improvement in colour, texture, fine lines and wrinkles. It improves acne scars, and scars that occur after surgery or trauma. Now, Fraxel® can safely treat off the face areas, including the neck, chest, back, arms, hands, and abdomen. Other lasers are not used off the face because of the potential risk of scarring.
The Fraxel laser penetrates deeply into the skin to promote the growth of new collagen and result in deeper dermal remodeling than seen with non-ablative procedures such as intense pulsed light. Acne scarring and wrinkles are treated more effectively.
How Fraxel Laser Works:
Fraxel Laser Treatment produces thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment in your skin, known as microthermal treatment zones. This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deep into the dermis. Just as important, though, are the areas of skin the Fraxel laser leaves untouched.
For every microthermal zone the laser targets and treats intensively, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This fractional treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tighter tissue to replace skin imperfections.
Because Fraxel Laser treatment spares healthy tissue, it is effective even on delicate skin areas, such as the neck, chest, and hands.
We also offer a quick, complimentary post-Fraxel procedure utilizing a Gentlewaves LED Photomodulator which has been proven to enhance Fraxel results and reduce immediate post-treatment redness. While many offices chage in excess of $100 for this treatment alone, we offer it complimentary to ensure the best results and the least downtime to our Fraxel patients.
