How do PhotoFacials work?

PhotoFacials (also known as IPL treatments) are one of the most popular facial treatments offered at Georgetown Plastic Surgery. Using advanced light therapy to reach deep into the skin, PhotoFacials stimulate collagen production, restoring firmness and improving skin’s overall tone and texture. The noninvasive use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) produces more even-looking skin with a smooth, healthy glow

What benefits can I expect from a PhotoFacial?

Whether you want to reduce feathery lines around the eyes and mouth, lighten hyper pigmentation, or improve Rosacea, light therapy has helped thousands of patients feel happier and more confident in their skin. Popular areas of patient treatment are the face, neck, décolletage, hands, and arms. Dr. Staebel performs PhotoFacials to successfully:
• Treat redness and flushed complexions
• Reduce fine wrinkling, freckling and irregular pigmentation caused by sun damage
• Smooth your skin and reduce pore size
• Reduce irregular pigment and create even skin tone
• Reduce the overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries associated with Rosacea

Recovery and other considerations.

The 30-40 minute PhotoFacial procedure is quick and noninvasive, with minimal downtime. Patients are generally very comfortable during the treatment, reporting little or no discomfort. Treated skin may be pink for a few hours post treatment. Improvements are gradual, becoming increasingly visible after each treatment.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Staebel will recommend a custom treatment plan that may combine cosmetic procedures the PhotoFacial to achieve optimal results. We are confident you will be delighted with the beautiful new skin this treatment produces. Contact Georgetown Plastic Surgery today for a consultation and more information about the PhotoFacial.
