Fotofacial and Refirme IPL

Fotofacial skin rejuvenation is a series of treatments that combines three of today's most effective technologies to achieve total skin renewal, which can be performed on the face, neck, hands, or body. The treatments are used to improve the appearance of rosacea, broken or raised capillaries, sun damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, uneven pigmentation, large pores, and skin laxity. This exciting treatment involves little or no “downtime”. You can resume normal activities immediately. There is minimal discomfort during this treatment.

This treatment works by combining intense pulsed light, safe and effective levels of infrared light, and a diode laser with bipolar radiofrequency (electric current) energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth.

For optimal results, a series of five treatments are recommended, spaced three to four weeks apart. Each of the five treatments includes three lasers (SR / SRA, ST, MIR). Microdermabrasions are included at the beginning and in the middle of the series to exfoliate the skin, to improve the results of the laser treatment. Follow-up treatments are recommended every four to six months to maintain results. Side effects are rare and our patients have a high degree of satisfaction with their results. Schedule your consultation and discover how this treatment can benefit you.



STEP 1: Color Correction (SR / SRA)

Effect: Treats telangiectasia, spider veins, rosacea, age spots and sun damage for more even skin tone.




STEP 2: Refirme™ Skin Tightening (ST)

Effect: Initially, there is an immediate contraction of existing collagen fibers, but with time, the laxity of the brow, jowls, neck and cheek areas will continue to improve due to the delayed collagen remodeling response.




STEP 3: Matrix IR™ Fractional Wrinkle Treatment (MIR)

Effect: Heat conducted to collagen fibers stimulates a short term reaction, followed by a long term process of new collagen remodeling, a process which is facilitated by the undamaged tissue. The Matrix IR treatment results in improved appearance of facial and neck wrinkle and rhytids.
