Skin Rejuvenation (Photofacial)
Conveniently located to serve Hawaii
A photofacial in Hawaii is a non-invasive, hassle-free way of achieving a fresh and rejuvenated appearance. Exposure to the sun can cause significant damage to the skin, and cosmetic products or topical medications may be unable to address such issues. Pigmentation and complexion problems can now be treated without invasive techniques.
What Is a Photofacial?
Living in Hawaii we understand it’s nearly impossible to escape the sun. Reverse signs of photodamage with a photofacial. A photofacial utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to carefully seek out specific pigment colors in your skin. Choose fast, easy, and comfortable photo rejuvenation to improve:
- Sun Spots
- Age Spots
- Uneven Skin Color/Hyperpigmentation
- Rosacea (facial redness)
- Spider Veins/Broken Capillaries
- Pore Size
- Fine Line and Wrinkles
After receiving a photofacial treatment the pigment will become darker before it naturally exfoliates off, giving a brighter and more clear complexion.
A photofacial uses a light-emitting device to target skin issues by targeting the melanin found in the skin and then generating heat within the dermis. The heat destroys the melanin that makes up pigmentation issues while activating the skin’s natural healing process. This causes new collagen and elastin to form, smoothing out rough texture and wrinkles.
Is Skin Rejuvenation Right for Me?
A photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment recommended for patients with lighter skin tones and good skin elasticity. Patients who are pregnant, have facial skin issues like severe acne or similar conditions, or are currently undergoing other treatments for acne are not ideal candidates.
After receiving a photofacial treatment, the pigment will become darker before it naturally exfoliates off, resulting in a brighter and clearer complexion.
Your Photofacial Consultation
A skin rejuvenation consultation will start with a physical examination of your skin. This is done to assess the severity of the issues being treated. After the examination, you will be asked about your goals and expectations for the procedure. A review of your medical history, lifestyle, and skincare regimen will also be conducted to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Photofacial treatments are often quick and will only take thirty minutes to an hour to complete. Before the treatment, the target areas will be cleansed, and a gel will be applied. The patient will be provided dark glasses for eye protection during the procedure.
The IPL device will be placed on top of the skin. It will emit light wavelengths to target cells that produce pigment. The light energy turns into heat energy, destroying the pigment cells and triggering the healing process.
Skin Rejuvenation Recovery
Allot a few days of recovery time following your photofacial procedure. After a skin rejuvenation treatment, patients will notice mild redness in the treated area, which may feel similar to a sunburn. The sensation will vanish eventually, and the treated skin will look much smoother and healthier in just a few weeks.
Any dark skin patches that appear on the surface will peel off after a while. When healing after a photofacial treatment, it is recommended to use protection against the sun by using sunscreen and protective gear to prevent discoloration. Dr. Healy will tell the patient when makeup or skincare products will be safe to apply again.
Skin Rejuvenation Cost
The cost of a photofacial skin rejuvenation treatment will vary based on factors like the number of areas being treated. Some patients undergo more than one photofacial session to ensure better results. The overall price may also reflect the number of photofacial treatments performed on the patient.
