Our PhotoFacial treatment uses the Alma Harmony XL Laser to laser various kinds of spots on the face, chest, and neck, such as unwanted freckles, sunspots, age spots, and other brown spots. The treatment uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to get rid of damaged areas of your skin, allowing healthier skin to emerge from underneath. Throughout the next few days following your treatment, you will notice the targeted areas start to darken and flake off, revealing new, clearer skin beneath.
At Advanced Aesthetics, we use our Alma Harmony XL Laser. This handheld laser makes it easy for us to target areas of various sizes on your face, neck, or chest, and it is safe, effective, and FDA-approved for aesthetic applications.
Before and After Photos
How Long is the Photofacial Treatment?
Depending on the type and severity of the spots, a patient could potentially require 1-3 treatments spaced each 4 weeks apart to reach desired results. To help with the mild discomfort of the laser, our providers will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area. Following an hour of numbing time, the procedure itself is quick, typically lasting 15-30 minutes depending on the treatment size. Afterward, patients can experience mild swelling and redness which typically revolve within a few hours post treatment, however no true downtime.
Are There Risks Involved in Photofacial Treatment?
The Alma Harmony XL Laser is completely safe and FDA-approved. The treatment simply stimulates your body’s natural healing processes to give you healthier skin. During the treatment, you will be given special glasses for eye protection as you relax in a comfortable chair.
After treatment, you will need to take extra care to wear sunscreen for protection as your newer, healing skin will be more vulnerable to UV damage.
Are Photofacial Results Immediate?
Within a few days of each treatment, you will notice the treated areas of skin growing dry, dark, and flaking off. It will take 10 to 14 days for the new skin to emerge and completely clear away the old skin. Between 1-3 treatments are usually needed for you to achieve optimum results.
