Q. Will being out in the sun ruin a Photofacial?

Sunlight is what causes most of the damage to facial skin. The more sun you get, the more damage will recur. There is simply no such thing as a healthy tan.

Q. How does Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatment compare to a surgical face lift?

Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatment usually has no associated downtime, and no anesthesia is required. There is no bleeding or scarring and very little risk of infection. The treatment is comfortable—relaxing even.
Facelifts have none of the above benefits. Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatments are designed to treat mild to moderate loose skin. Facelifts do a better job of tightening severely loose skin.

Q. How many Photofacial treatments will I need?

Fair-skinned individuals with mild to moderate damage generally get a very good result with three to four Photofacial treatments. Individuals with moderate to severe sun damage may benefit from more than four Photofacial treatments. Once the initial series of Photofacial treatments is complete, clients may benefit from occasional repeat Photofacial treatments to maintain the results as much as possible.
