Photofacials are a great treatment option for patients with sun damage, discoloration and rosacea/broken blood vessels. This procedure uses a laser to break down and remove the brown spots/redness from the body. During the procedure, the patient will feel a zing sensation and the pigment will appear slightly darker at first, then slough off after a few days. Most patients will require 3 to 6 treatments depending on the amount of damage they have. Caucasian, Asian, and light Mediterranean skin are the best candidates. Patients that tan or spend most of their time in the sun are not recommended for the photofacial procedure. The photofacial is a great treatment for patients looking for a healthy, younger looking complexion.
