Photofacial FAQ's

Q: How does it work?

  1. A: Using the spectrum of IPL appropriate to the clinical objective, light energy is transformed to heat energy.
  2. The chromophore in the target tissue - such as hemoglobin or pigment - responds to the heat energy.
  3. The target is fragmented and absorbed without damage to the surrounding tissue
.

Q: Is Photofacial permanent?

A: After completing the Photorejuvenation series, healthy new skin cells form, creating the new growth of healthy tissue. Once your desired results are achieved, approximately two to four maintenance treatments, depending on the patient, a year are recommended.

Q: Does it work on broken capallaries?

A: Broken capillaries respond dramatically to Photorejuvenation. After your treatment, dilated or broken blood vessels decrease, gradually fade and slowly disappear.

Q: Does it work on acne scars?

A: Acne scars that have color (red or brown) will appear less severe after Photorejuvenation treatment.

Q: Does it minimize pore size?

A: After a series of treatments are completed, the patient will notice improvement in the skin texture and the appearance of enlarged pores.

Q: Can I tan during the treatment series?

A: Extreme sun exposure is not recommended. A patient who has casual sun may be treated. It is always advised to apply sun block to treatment areas to insure maximum results.

Q: Can you treat other areas of the body besides the face?

A: Yes, many areas can be treated. The neck, chest, shoulders, forearms and hands are the most commonly treated.

Q: What is the treatment like?

A: PhotoFacial consists of five, thirty to forty five minute, treatments spaced two weeks apart. Intense pulsed light is passed along the skin of the face, and in some instances, neck and chest. Patients describe the sensation as feeling like the snap of a rubber band.

Q: When will I be able to return to my normal activities?

A: Patients experience NO DOWN TIME. However, it is best to plan to put ice on the treated area for at least 20 minutes or longer after treatment. This reduces redness and swelling. In most instances, normal activities can be resumed immediately.

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: The number of treatments depends on the size, location, depth and color of the lesion; the patient’s skin type and the level of expected outcomes. Some patients report a visible change in 7-10 days. Strict sun protection, of course, is a necessary component in healthy skin care programs and even more critical with MediLux. The treatment protocols recommend a patient to undergo a four to six treatment regimen for maximum benefits. MediLux treatments are cumulative, and can take up to nine months to see the final result.

Q: Who should not have the procedure?

A: A Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation is not advisable for patients with connective tissue disease or autoimmune disorders. It is not advisable for pregnant women, nor is it safe for recently sun-tanned skin or in those who may receive excess sun exposure in the immediate weeks following treatment. It should not be performed on patients taking Accutane or for six months after stopping Accutane. The procedure is not usually performed on patients with active acne cysts, large pustules, or highly active Rosacea. Most photosensitive medications such as antibiotics, anti anxiety, sulfa drugs, birth control pills and anti-hypertensive medications are not a concern. In patients who get fever blister attacks (herpes) on the face, an anti-herpes medication should be taken prior to treatment.

Q: What are the skin conditions not likely to be helped by a Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation?

A: It will not improve the appearance of frown lines, which are the lines of expression on the face, especially the forehead and between the brows. It will not help baggy or sagging skin, puffiness around the eyes, or skin cancer. Photofacial Skin Rejuvenations have shown to treat pre-cancerous lesions known as “actinic keratosis”. It won’t remove bumpy moles, but a Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation treatment might remove their pigment. Genetic freckles usually return after treatment.

Q: Are there any side effects?

A: Because of the inherent safety of the procedure, most side effects are mild and of short duration. There is usually mild redness immediately following treatment, lasting less than 24 hours in most people. On rare occasions the redness may last up to three days. Mild blistering and bruising is possible in less than 1% of patients but usually clears very quickly. Mild swelling of the face for several days occasionally occurs in severely sun-damaged skin due to reduced quality of connective tissue around the blood vessels. The risks of the known common and uncommon side effects will be reviewed with you at the time of your consultation.

Chemical Peels

Photofacial and Chemical Peels<br /> in Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton

Chemical peels are topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin's surface. The function of a skin peel is to create an even controlled shedding of several layers of damaged cells. This exposes a new fresh layer of skin with a more even color and a smoother texture. In addition, the peel stimulates new cells to grow, thereby tightening the skin, which decreases wrinkling.

Chemical peels can effectively improve many conditions, including:

  • Dull, weathered skin
  • Freckling
  • Blotchy pigmentation (including the mask of pregnancy)
  • Sun damage (including pre-cancerous lesions)
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Shallow acne scars
  • Blemishes
  • Freckles

What substances are used for chemical peel?

  • AHA: Alphahydroxy acids such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels that can often provide smoother, brighter-looking skin. AHA peels may be used to accomplish the following:
  • reduce fine wrinkling
  • treat areas of dryness
  • reduce uneven pigmentation
  • aid in control of acne
  • smooth rough, dry skin
  • improve texture of sun-damaged skin

AHA peels may cause the following:

- stinging, redness, irritation, crusting, flaking, or scaling, dryness.
Generally, no anesthesia is needed for AHA peels since they cause only a slight stinging sensation during application.

FAQ

Q: How Procedure is done?

A: Your skin will be prepared with a variety of cleansers and astringents by the practitioner. Following that, a chemical will be applied to your face (or other body part as indicated). You will experience a moderate burning sensation for 1-15 minutes until the acid is neutralized with water. The skin will be “frosted” or appear slightly white for up to 2 hours following the procedure.

Q: How much time will I miss from work?

A: Most people take 5-7 days to heal from an average peel. During the healing process there is no pain, but the skin looks as if it has had a severe sunburn. Therefore, most patients choose to stay home during the healing time.

Side Effects:

  • The most common side effect after a peel is brown discoloration of the skin. This is usually reversible but can rarely be permanent.
  • This side effect usually occurs only in those who have had sun exposure after a peel.
  • Peels can cause persistent redness of the skin.
  • If you get cold sores, a peel can cause them to flare.

Who Should NOT Have a Peel:

If you have any of the following problems, a peel should not be done at this time:

  • Accutane use within the past six (6) months
  • Active herpes simplex (cold sores)
  • Facial Warts
  • If you are now pregnant
  • If you form keloid or hypertrophic scars
  • If you have a history of sun allergies
  • Prior bad reaction to a peel
  • Recent radiation treatment for cancer
  • Sun burn or significant sun exposure in the last two days
