The Photofacial is a series of gentle optimized pulsed light treatments using the IPL (intense pulse light) laser to significantly reducing visible signs of UV/sun damage and aging. At Bellissima Medical, our staff is fully certified and has advanced training in IPL – ensuring you the best results. This treatment will leave you with clearer, younger and healthier-looking skin from the very first treatment.

Whereas most laser therapies such as skin resurfacing use one or two particular wavelengths of light or only treat the surface of the skin, Photofacial light treatments rely on a spectrum of high-intensity light pulses to target pigmented lesions and vascular irregularities in multiple layers of tissue. The laser’s specially filtered broadband light passes harmlessly through healthy tissue to target darker melanin (brown spots and other pigmented lesions) and oxy-hemoglobin (red blemishes and enlarged veins). When the light reaches these pigments, it is converted to heat energy that fragments the discoloration into particles, which the body either absorbs or sloughs off. As they vanish, the healthy new collagen that is stimulated by the healing process will help smooth out the overall tone and texture of your skin.

The Photofacial procedure is a non-invasive and non-ablative (non-wounding) treatment, so it requires no anesthetic and has little or no downtime. A series of treatments can offer the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation or deeper chemical peels without blistering, peeling or longer recovery time.
