Foto Facial

Foto Facial is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment option that can rejuvenate your skin using pulsed light and a gentle electrical radio frequency current.

Foto Facial takes just 30 minutes; this pulsed light treatment penetrates to all levels of your skin, causing the collagen and blood vessels beneath the epidermis to constrict. The treatment recommendation is for a series of six full-face light treatments at three-week intervals.

During the procedure you may experience some minor discomfort that people have described as being similar to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Your cosmetic surgeon will apply a topical cream before the treatment to eliminate most discomfort.
