Make Your Skin Glow With A PhotoFacial™

A PhotoFacial ™ involves a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture and Rosacea.  IPL is effective in treating damaged skin on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

IPL Photofacial™- Overview

This procedure takes approximately 45-90 minutes. First, skin care specialist Dr. Rifai will cleanse the area and apply cooling gel. Then the light treatment is performed. It is common to experience some minor discomfort, however this is brief. After treatment, the gel is removed, the area is cleansed and a sunblock is applied to protect the skin. For additional comfort, a cool compress may be applied following treatment.

A minimum of five treatments is recommended for optimal results. To maintain desired results, follow-up treatments may be needed one to two times a year.

IPL Photofacial™- Recovery

There is no downtime following this procedure. You can immediately return to your regular activities. Your skin may look slightly flushed temporarily, however this can be easily disguised with make-up or powder, if you choose.

Dr. Rifai has 25 years of experience performing cosmetic procedures and can answer any questions you may have about IPL Photofacial™ during your consultation.
