WHAT IS A PHOTOFACIAL?
If you've noticed dark spots, age spots, or any other signs of hyperpigmentation throughout your complexion, you may benefit from a photofacial. Utilizing light-based energy to gently heat the skin, a photofacial at Symphony Medical Spa works over several sessions to even out your skin tone and minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage. There are different types of photofacials you could receive, including IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy or more mild options using the Icon™ device by Cynosure®. To find out what type of photofacial is right for your needs and goals, schedule a consultation with Dr. Carolyn Forbes at her premier office in Tooele, UT.
PHOTOFACIAL VS. IPL
A photofacial is a type of skin rejuvenation treatment that utilizes light energy to target areas of hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, sun spots, freckles, dark spots, and more, throughout the face and skin. With our team's Icon device, we are able to stimulate the production of collagen in your cells, which gently resurface over time to reveal a more even skin tone. Depending on the starting condition of your skin, you may need several treatments to see the full results you want. IPL is another type of photofacial that is performed at our office in Tooele, UT. Whether you qualify for IPL or a traditional photofacial will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Forbes.
