A photofacial is a treatment using BroadBand Light™ (BBL) to target and remove age/brown spots, sun damage, broken capillaries, facial veins and flushing. It also helps control active acne and to even collagen rejuvenation for improved skin tone and wrinkle reduction. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissues to variable depth. The photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. The unwanted pigment absorbs the light energy which over the next few days will cause the pigmented lesions to darken and fall off. It is safe and effective for the entire body including the hands, décolleté, back, neck, chest, arms and legs. We recommend a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart, even though you will notice positive changes even after your very first session.
