Exposure to the sun accelerates the ageing process of the skin and can cause disruption in the normal blood supply to the skin (which results in vascular disorders such as telangiectasias or diffuse redness).
It can also cause irregular pigmentation that shows as freckles (ephelides) or age-spots (solar lentigines) and irregular pore size.
Say goodbye to these effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. With the innovative Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) Photofacial/ Fotofacial procedure, gentle skin rejuvenation is now easier than ever. IPL™ photorejuvenation is the latest in modern dermatology, allowing patients to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion. If you suffer from any of these problems, Photofacial/ Fotofacial treatments may be the dermatological approach you've been looking for.
IPL Photofacial FAQ's
Is it suitable for all skin tones?
How long does it takes?
The glass prism within the AW3® applicator that guides the light to the skin is 15mm by 50mm, so a large area can be targeted in one flash of light. Our system has the largest spot size on the market and is the only system to have auto flashes without delay. This mean doing a facial will only take 5-10 minutes.

What Is IPL™ Photofacial/Fotofacial?
A photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a short procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL™ photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial/fotofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment. For even greater cosmetic enhancement, patients may also opt for a FotoFacial RF™, a procedure that combines radio waves with light waves to achieve excellent results.
