Do IPL Photofacial treatments hurt, and how long will it take?
There may be some mild discomfort but nothing most people can’t easily tolerate. Treatments can take as little as 30 minutes to 90 depending on the treatment and the area.
What will I look like after the treatment?
It depends on the treatment. For sun damage and brown spots like freckles, they tend to get darker for a few days before they scab and start to fall off. For veins, the skin may look more red for a few days but make up can be applied directly after the treatment so long as it is applied and removed gently.
How much do the treatments cost?
Each package or session is tailored to suit your needs. Prices range based on the treatment and the area. Typically, the starting cost is around $200 per session. Please phone and set up a consultation so a specialist can tailor a package that works for your needs.
How long does it take to get the results I am looking for?
Some people are pleased with the results after the first treatment and don’t feel the need to return for more but the average number of sessions for the desired results is three.
How long do the results last?
This is highly dependent on your skin care regime.. If you were treating sun spots and find yourself back in the sun without adequate SPF protection the spots will return. Please talk with our specialists about post treatment and proper skin care. We carry a range of professional products to assist with maintaining good skin health.
Do I have to miss any work for the treatment?
No, absolutely not, there is no down time for recovery and we keep open late most nights so you can schedule your treatments in the evenings.
