Photorejuvenation Fotofacial

Photorejuvenation Fotofacial using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) targets brown spots, red vessels and stimulates collagen resulting in a lighter, brighter and more even skin colour.

With the Alma Harmony Platform we can deliver ideal optimal treatments for freckles, brown marks, hyperpigmenation, redness, capillaries and rosacea.

The Harmony uses Advanced Fluorescent Technology (AFT) which is the next generation of IPL. During the treatment, the eyes are covered and the IPL hand piece delivers specific pulses of light to the treated area. The area is scanned with the IPL sometimes with multiple passes in order to treat the specific condition.

When brown marks are treated the area will normally go darker for a few days after and then the skin will gradually slough off. Red and blue blood vessels typically fade immediately. The sensation for about 1 hour after is similar to a mild sunburn. Occasionally a minimal amount of swelling can last for a few days after the procedure. The skin is treated for the condition that is apparent at the time of treatment and lifestyle changes and prescribed homecare will help to prevent the condition from returning.

Depending on the condition and the area to be treated 1-3 treatments may be required and then a revitalized, radiant skin is the result.

Tips for Photorejuvenation Fotofacial:

  • Do not use AHA’s, BHA’s, or retinols for 1 week before and after the treatment
  • Do not pick, peel or scratch the area after treatment
  • Use only prescribed skin care after treatment
  • Sunscreen must be worn at all times
  • No have exfoliation for at least 5 days after
  • Heat from exercise, showers, steam, caffeine or alcohol should be avoided for at least 12hours before and after treatment
