what is a fotofacial?
Foto-Facial is an intense pulsed light device used for the treatment of benign vascular and pigmented lesions. The purpose of the FotoFacial procedure is to improve the appearance of the skin. Redness, rosacea, sun-damage and irregular pigmentation can be improved with FotoFacial treatments. The light wavelength, exposure duration and energy level are chosen to selectively damage targeted blood vessels and irregular pigmentation with no damage to the surrounding tissue. The intense pulsed light and/or intense pulsed laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessel, resulting in their heating. The blood vessel walls are damaged, rendering the lesion invisible. The body then absorbs these damaged vessels.
