What is an
The photofractional is a combination treatment designed to simultaneously treat a range of skin aging concerns. By combining the benefits of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX non-ablative skin resurfacing, the photofractional provides noticeable results for pigmentation, age and sun spots, fine lines, and the overall appearance of your skin. The photofractional is an ideal treatment for patients, who are looking for a complete skin rejuvenation solution with minimal downtime.
Our photofractional treatment rejuvenates your skin by stimulating collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. IPL is applied first to erase pigmentation and age/sunspots. Then, the ResurFX stimulates collagen production and treats fine lines and wrinkles or other textural issues.
You may begin to notice subtle improvements in skin tone and pigmentation after just one session. However, typically, about 3 sessions are needed to see lasting visible improvements and optimal results are usually achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4 weeks intervals.
To ensure patient comfort, we apply a topical numbing cream prior to your treatment. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to your skin. However, most patients report no pain or discomfort as it is a very gentle treatment. We also provide air cooling during the treatment, if necessary. Depending on your customized laser settings, you may experience some redness or swelling immediately after the treatment. Any side effects will typically disappear within 24 hours and you are able to resume your daily activities right after.
Dawn is next level! Between her technical knowledge, highly skilled application and eye for perfection, my skin has never looked better.
