What is a photofacial?
Our photofacials are performed using Palomar’s patented RejuveLux™ Process. Photofacials are treatments that target the face, neck and chest to remove sun damaged and aged areas, facial vessels, as well as smooth fine lines and overall skin texture. Photofacials aid to stimulate the collagen production, resulting in a fresher, healthier, more youthful look. Photofacials can also be performed on the hands, legs, arms and shoulders, or anywhere that brown spots and sun damage are prevalent. Photofacials can leave a patient’s skin looking more youthful and vibrant.
How is a photofacial performed?
Photofacials are performed with a series of gentle pulsed light treatments. The intense light is emitted in a series of pulses over the target area.
Is there any down time for the patient?
This unique, non-invasive treatment can improve the appearance of skin, while requiring little to no down time for the patient. There may initially be some redness and darkening of spots, which should fade in a short time.

How many treatments will I need?

Are there any side effects?
Most people experience some mild temporary redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn in the treated area shortly after treatment This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will be mild and temporary.
Who is a candidate for the RejuveLux process?
