The Photofacial is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure. The Cutera Excel V is used for the Photofacial and the light is carefully calibrated, specific to each patient skin tone and pigment. This light is targeted for specified areas such as Rosacea (red spider veins/broken capillaries) or dark brown sun spots. The Photofacial treatment is administered by our Laser Technician, with consultations by one of our Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Hartshorn, Dr. Swelstad or Dr. Pitcher. The treatment can be accomplished in as little as 30 minutes (depending on patient needs) with improvements in skin within 60-90 days. The Photofacial stimulates the skin to build new collagen and corrects the skin from the inside out, with no downtime! Your results will be healthy, more youthful looking skin with minimized sun damage. The Photofacial can be used on any part of the face and body.
We suggest a schedule of 4 treatments to see the best results.
If you are prone to cold sores, we will require a an antiviral prescription to taken 2 days prior to treatment (such as Acyclovir or Valtrex).
