Photofacial Treatments in Phoenix, Arizona at Luminosa Medical Spa

We offer Photofacial in Phoenix, Arizona at Luminosa Medical Spa. A photofacial is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPL™ photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. The procedure involves only minimal discomfort, while the redness and swelling that sometimes occur after treatment disappear shortly. Most benefits of a photofacial/fotofacial occur gradually in the weeks following treatment. For even greater cosmetic enhancement, patients may also opt for a Venus Viva™ NanoFractional RF Skin Resurfacing Treatment, a procedure that combines radio waves with light waves to achieve excellent results.

How does Venus Versa Photofacials work?

During IPL™ photorejuvenation treatment, high energy light waves are used to reduce or eliminate many common effects of aging, including facial wrinkles and skin discolorations. IPL™ light also encourages the production of collagen, a natural protein that fills in wrinkles, making the skin smooth and supple. With each treatment, the results of IPL™ photorejuvenation become more pronounced. Five full-face IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial sessions spaced three weeks apart are normally required for optimal results.

How many treatments are needed?

Photofacials are typically performed in a series of 3 to 5 treatments scheduled about 3 weeks apart with little or no down time. After even one treatment your skin will have a more even tone with a smoother, younger look and feel.

What is the downtime?

The procedure is also quick and involves little or no down , making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules.
