Photofacial in Montclair, New Jersey
Photo Genesis is a quick, safe and comfortable procedure to improve your skin’s texture, tone and color and to remove redness, brown spots and sun damage. This intense pulsed light technology can be used anywhere on the body but is especially effective for the face.
A photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a non-invasive procedure which utilizes intense pulses of light to penetrate deep into the skin. The light energy stimulates your body’s collagen production causes blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness, brown pigmentation and fine age lines.
How does Photo Genesis work?
Photo Genesis is a pulsed light system that emits wavelengths at a very comfortable energy level. The light that is used in the Photo Genesis treatment is selectively absorbed only by those areas that are pigmented or red. These areas are heated and are therapeutically affected by the laser. Problems such as rosacea and brown spots can be easily treated with no discomfort.
No topical anesthesia or gel needs to be applied, making this treatment quick and convenient. No messy gels are necessary. The hand piece against the skin feels cool and comfortable. The actual laser pulse itself is a very mild and brief pinching sensation. A treatment takes only a few minutes.
Immediately after the treatment, the spots may start to darken. There may be a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This goes away after a couple of hours. Over the next 7-21 days, the darkened spots will start to fade and flake off. Any mottling of your complexion will disappear.
What are the results of Photo Genesis treatments?
Signs of sun damage and age spots usually flake off after one or two treatments, leaving clearer, younger looking skin. In cases of very sun damaged skin, densely freckled areas or very large or dark sun spots, additional treatments may be needed.
Many patients will see significant improvement in their skin within two to three weeks of treatment. Your skin will appear clearer and younger looking and the best results will be seen after a month or more.
If you plan to spend time in the sun, it is very important to generously apply sunscreen to minimize the return of spots and excessive redness.
