All patients see positive results from a FotoFacial™ without any of the potential side effects seen with other lasers.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a treatment with a machine that produces a very strong pulse light that will lead to remodeling of the deeper level of the skin and death of the bacteria.
The untreated acne will result typically with acne scars, which are depressions, and ice pic scars.
For the treatment of acne scars C02 laser resurfacing is successful and this can be done under local or general anesthesia.
It is possible to see improvement from the first fotofacial treatment but may require 1-2 full skin cycles (5-10 weeks) to achieve optimal results.
