Photofractional Treatment Santa Rosa

Lumenis Photofractional Facial Rejuvenation

The Lumenis® Photofractional™ laser treatment utilizes the state of the art Stellar M22 system for a complete skin rejuvenation solution which offers remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun spots, vascular lesions, uneven texture and skin tone. This rejuvenation technology includes two technologies:  IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, so that both skin tone and texture can be treated at the same session. Lumenis® IPL technology improves both unwanted pigmentation and blood vessels from the skin, while the ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin. A series of 3 to 5 treatments 3 to 5 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.
One of the main benefits of Photofractional Facial Rejuvenation is that it is a non-invasive procedure, meaning there is no need for surgery or downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment. Additionally, the treatment is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort.
This treatment is perfect for rejuvenating the skin and achieving a more youthful and radiant complexion. Whether you are looking to reduce the signs of aging, improve skin texture, or fade unwanted pigmentation, this advanced treatment can help you achieve your skincare goals.

How Does Lumenis Photofractional Treatment Work?

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver laser energy to the targeted areas of your skin. This energy is absorbed by the deeper layers of the skin, where it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These proteins are crucial for maintaining skin elasticity, smoothness, and a youthful appearance.

In addition to promoting collagen production, the laser energy also works to break down pigmented lesions and even out skin tone. The result? A more radiant complexion and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and uneven texture.

What sets Lumenis Photofractional Treatment apart is its ability to combine multiple laser wavelengths in a single session. This versatility allows the treatment to effectively address a wide range of skin concerns with minimal discomfort.

With Lumenis Photofractional Treatment, you can achieve smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin, all without the need for surgery or downtime. Say goodbye to dull, tired skin and hello to a rejuvenated, glowing complexion!

What to Expect During and After the Procedure

During the treatment, you can expect to feel a gentle warming sensation on your skin as the handheld device delivers laser energy. Most patients find the procedure to be relatively comfortable, with minimal discomfort. The length of the treatment will vary depending on the areas being treated, but sessions typically last around 30-60 minutes.

After the procedure, you may experience some redness or mild swelling, similar to a sunburn. Don’t worry, this is completely normal and will usually subside within a few hours to a few days. It’s important to follow any aftercare instructions provided by your healthcare professional, which may include avoiding sun exposure and applying a gentle moisturizer.

In terms of results, you may start to notice improvements in your skin’s texture and tone within a few weeks. However, optimal results typically require a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart. Your treatment provider will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired outcome.

The Lumenis Photofractional Treatment offers a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your skin. With minimal discomfort and downtime, you can expect to see improvements in your complexion and achieve the youthful glow you’ve been dreaming of.

Aftercare Instructions

After undergoing Lumenis Photofractional Facial Rejuvenation, it’s important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best results and maintain the health of your skin. Here are some guidelines to help you take care of your skin post-treatment.

  1. Protect your skin from the sun: It’s crucial to shield your skin from harmful UV rays, especially in the days following the procedure. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and reapply it every two hours, especially if you’re spending time outdoors.
  2. Avoid harsh skincare products: For the first few days after the treatment, steer clear of any products containing harsh chemicals or exfoliating agents. Stick to gentle, hydrating cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreens to nurture your healing skin.
  3. Don’t pick or scratch: Although it may be tempting, avoid picking at any scabs, flaking skin, or crusts that may develop post-treatment. This can cause scarring and interfere with the healing process.
  4. Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin hydrated and aids in the healing process. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day.
  5. Follow your skincare professional’s recommendations: Your healthcare professional will provide specific aftercare instructions based on your individual needs and the extent of your treatment. It’s essential to follow their advice to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects.

Remember, each person’s healing process may vary, so be patient and gentle with your skin during the recovery period. By following these aftercare instructions, you can help maintain the results of your Lumenis Photofractional Facial Rejuvenation and keep your skin looking its best.
