What is FotoFacial-RF? FotoFacial-RF combines light energies and bi-polar radio frequency to produce the most effective intense pulse light treatment available. The treatment is effective in reducing the appearance of rosacea, sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, acne scaring and redness. Treatments can be performed on the face, neck, chest and hands.
How does FotoFacial-RF work? Energy is absorbed by the skin to gradually eliminate blemishes and increase collagen production. It is a non-surgical procedure performed in the office. Five treatments (spaced 3-5 weeks apart) are recommended to achieve maximum results.
What are the most common side effects of FotoFacial-RF? Since FotoFcial-RF uses gentle pulses of targeted energy, side effects are very rare. In some cases, patients may experience slight redness of the treatment area immediately following the procedure. This effect may last up to 24 hours.
Is a FotoFacial-RF treatment painful? Most people report that the treatment feels like a tiny needle prick or pinch on the skin. A topical anesthetic cream is applied 30 minutes prior to numb the treatment area and prevent any discomfort. One treatment takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Most people resume normal activity immediately.
How long will the results of FotoFacial-RF last? FotoFacial-RF is a permanent procedure. However, it will not prevent the aging process. Patients are highly encouraged to maintain a strict skincare regimen that includes a daily application of sunscreen. A doctor recommended line of products is available in our office to help you maintain your results. Maintenance treatments are also recommended every 4-6 months to keep the skin looking its best.
Is FotoFacial-RF affordable? FotoFacial-RF is available as a package treatment. This package includes a consultation with the doctor, five treatments, anesthetic cream and all of your post-treatment photographs and evaluations. Treatment packages start at $2,500.
