Do you have years of serious sun damage? Have you had precancerous skin lesions frozen? The FotoFacial, using a non laser light source-an intense pulse light or IPL-alows for a safe, non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation of one’s face and body. Photorejuvenation with Levulan Booster can produce even more dynamic results for men and women alike.
This procedure offers all of the advantages of the FotoFacial combined with additional important benefits. Adding the Levulan booster to the procedure provides a more intense and in-depth treatment, targeting oily or acne-prone skin, sebaceous hyperplasia, as well as significant sun damage and/or precancerous lesions. A patented chemical is applied to the treated area and allowed to absorb for 30 to 60 minutes prior to the FotoFacial. The chemical is then activated by the light of the FotoFacial device, allowing for a deeper treatment with more effective anti-aging results. Strict sun avoidance is necessary for 48 hours after this procedure to avoid any further chemical reaction.
This procedure is offered by Skin Secrets clinicians to anyone who has significant sun damage of the skin, including red marks and veins, coarseness, uneven skin tones, and brown spots or wrinkles. This is an ideal procedure for the bald, sun damaged scalp as well as for the face, chest, hands, back, arms, and legs. The FDA has approved Levulan for the treatment of actinic keratoses (AK’s) as an alternative to either freezing them off or to unsightly prescription treatments. This procedure may be accompanied by three to seven days of redness and peeling, but is well worth the mild and temporary annoyance, given the effective results achieved.
