FotoFacial RF™ Skin Rejuvenation
The natural aging process takes its toll on your skin over time. When combined with the effects of hormones, sun exposure and stress, it leaves you looking far from your best. Your skin starts to lose elasticity to reveal texture changes, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin color, even redness and blushing — all visible signs of aging. More and more people are looking for a way to turn back the hands of time and restore their youthful, vibrant appearance. They want to look as good as they feel. FotoFacial RF is the latest innovation in non—invasive skin rejuvenation. It is the safest, most effective and comfortable solution for the superior results you demand, and Susan Stevens Tanne, M.D. is one of the only physicians in the area to offer it.
What is FotoFacial RF?
Unlike lasers that are composed of light of one wavelength, FotoFacial (also known as photorejuvenation or IPL) delivers pulses of light of multiple different wavelengths enabling it to address several skin conditions simultaneously. It was designed to restore the softness and radiance of your skin without the side effects associated with traditional resurfacing modalities. Radiofrequency (RF) uses heat to induce collagen contraction and subsequent skin tightening. In marrying Intense Pulsed Light and Radiofrequency energy into one treatment, FotoFacial RF treatments offer the very latest and most effective high–tech, non–invasive form of non—invasive skin enhancement. FotoFacial RF is the first and only machine to combine intense pulsed light with radiofrequency for maximum safety, effectiveness, and comfort.
What results can I expect from FotoFacial?
FotoFacial RF safely and comfortably treats Rosacea, spider veins, sun damage, age spots (also known as freckles, brown spots or sun spots), as well as uneven skin tone created by brown and red spots. In addition, because it uses bipolar radiofrequency, FotoFacial RF will simultaneously stimulate collagen production leading to softer wrinkles and tighter pores. The results are progressive and your satisfaction will increase with each successive treatment with up to 90% improvement. The end result is smoother, healthier, younger looking skin.
What is the treatment like?
You will experience a warm sensation during your treatment but there is practically no discomfort. This is minimized with the use of numbing cream, which is applied to the skin 20 minutes prior to the scheduled FotoFacial RF™. A forced air, skin–cooling system, the SynerCool provides an additional degree of comfort. The procedure may take up to an hour and can be performed on the face as well as the neck, chest, and hands. There is no downtime and you return to your normal daily activities without delay. Improvements in skin tone and texture, as well as color and overall redness are visible after each session but a series of 5 treatments is recommended for optimal results. A microdermabrasion is usually performed between FotoFacial treatments to enhance the penetration of the light and Radio Frequency energy. Dr. Tanne will customize a skin care regimen to accelerate your results and help you maintain your improvements once you complete your series of treatments.
Who is a good candidate for IPL FotoFacial Rejuvenation?
Anyone interested in softer, smoother, healthier–looking skin can benefit from FotoFacial RF Rejuvenation. Sun damage, uneven skin color, and even redness and flushing associated with rosacea are improved substantially. Fine lines and wrinkles gradually appear softer while pores are refined. Broken capillaries, freckles, ruddy complexion are dramatically reduced. FotoFacial RF provides progressive, long lasting results, leaving you with softer, younger looking skin.
