Photofractional™ in Bend, OR
This combined IPL and ResurFX™ treatment gives us over 600 combinations to tailor to your skin’s needs. This treatment was designed to significantly reduce hyperpigmentation, age/sun spots, improve texture, fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks and to improve overall skin health.
What is Photofractional™?
The Lumenis® Photofractional™ is a combination of two devices. We combine IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ (a non ablative skin resurfacing technology). By combining the two procedures, we get you double the results in half the time.
How Does Photofractional™ Work?
The Lumenis® IPL technology works by removing unwanted redness caused by broken capillaries and hyperpigmentation. The ResurFX™ is Lumenis® fractional technology that will stimulate the production of new collagen, as well as the elastic fibers that are located deep in the layers of the skin. One of the key factors in reversing aging is the stimulation of new collagen production.
What Can I Expect During My Photofractional™ Treatment?
We will apply a topical numbing solution to aide in the comfort of your treatment. When the treatment begins, we’ll apply our cryo air device to keep you comfortable during your treatment. The procedure will take 30-60 minutes depending on the area we are treating. You will feel a warm, prickling sensation from the laser as the energy is applied to the skin. This treatment is non ablative, gentle and you shouldn’t experience much discomfort.
What Can I Expect After the Photofractional™ Procedure?
You will experience some swelling, redness and heat after the procedure. Because your treatment is customized to your skin and goals, the after effects can last anywhere from an hour post procedure until the next day. Most of our clients feel as if they’re experiencing a mild sunburn in the first 24 hours. Within the first 72 hours, most of the effects will resolve. You will need to stay protected from direct sun exposure and wear SPF as well.
When Will I Begin to See My Results?
To obtain the optimal results from the Photofractional™ treatment, you will need to do 3-5 treatments 4-6 weeks apart. Each session will stimulate deep collagen regeneration. You will notice an improvement with your hyperpigmentation, redness and overall tone as soon as after your first treatment. It will usually take a few treatments to get the desired results with the skin’s texture. You will continue to see an improvement in the overall skin’s appearance for the following 6 months post treatment.
