What Are Photofacials?
Photofacials use intense light energy to target damaged tissues in the skin. Dr. Hueneke may recommend a photofacial if you are concerned with:
- Fine lines
- Spider veins
- Broken capillaries
- Age spots
The light energy that is produced by the photofacial treatment stimulates collagen production and cell turnover. This firms the skin and gives it a younger appearance. A device is used to administer the energy in short bursts across the treatment area. The sensation of having a photofacial is a gentle warming that may last for a few hours after the treatment.
Photofacials do not stop the aging process, but they can delay the need for plastic surgery, such as a facelift. Dr. Hueneke may recommend photofacials as part of your post-surgical plan after having a facelift or other anti-aging surgery to help you maintain the results.
What is the Cost of Photofacials?
The average cost of photofacials varies by patient and his or her aesthetic goals. We can discuss the details of your cost for photofacials at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of Photofacials?
- Anti-aging without incisions or scars
- Uses the body’s healing mechanism to rejuvenate the skin
- Corrects common flaws
- No downtime
What is the Recovery Time for Photofacials?
Photofacials do not require downtime. Your skin has a refreshed appearance after the treatment that gradually improves in the coming weeks. Collagen production can take up to six weeks. Dr. Hueneke may recommend follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. Your body will continue to break down collagen, so you may need to repeat the treatments periodically to keep your skin looking young.
