Pigment Treatments

Photo Facial

Description

Concerned about sun damage or hyperpigmentation disrupting your flawless canvas? Sun spots and other signs of aging can make you look older than you feel. A Photo Facial treatment uses transforming pulses of laser light to target and break down pigment on your face or body and increase collagen production to lift and rejuvenate skin. This treatment can effectively fade and treat a variety of aging and hyperpigmentation concerns.

What It Treats

For a Photo Facial treatment, we use our innovative excel® V+ laser to target hyperpigmentation, sun damage, uneven skin tone, skin laxity, and discolouration. Skin is tightened and lifted as collagen production is stimulated. This treatment can also address discolouration concerns like freckles, port wine stains, rosacea, and more.

How It Works

Multiple wavelengths allow us to target areas of pigmentation without damaging the surface of your skin. Pigments absorb the laser light waves and begin to coagulate and break down – this is how we target your problem areas during treatment. Deeper wavelengths stimulate collagen and elastin production to rejuvenate and tighten skin for a more youthful appearance.

Pre Treatment

Please avoid sun tanning or sun exposure for 2-4 weeks prior to treatment. Please discuss ceasing any medication with your doctor before doing so.

Please advise your treatment provider if you are currently undergoing Accutane treatment or have undergone a similar drug treatment plan within the last six months, or if you are undergoing gold therapy.

Post Treatment

You may have some skin sensitivity following treatment. You’ll want to avoid sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Avoid strenuous workouts or excessively hot showers, hot yoga, saunas and spas for two days. Use gentle, non-irritating products after facial laser treatments – we’ll be happy to help you find the right products to maximize results and recovery.
