How are the FotoFacial RF™ treatments performed?

Each treatment takes about 30 minutes and involves pulses of bright visible light and RadioFrequency energy that are passed into the skin. Because each FotoFacial RF™ treatment is gentle, most patients require 5 or 6 FotoFacial™ treatments to see the desired results and they are performed every 3 weeks. In certain skin types, a microdermabrasion is performed between FotoFacial™ treatments to enhance the penetration of the light and RadioFrequency energy.

Each pulse of the FotoFacial™ RF device sends two types of energy into your skin, Intense Pulsed Visible Light and RadioFrequency energy, that act synergistically to enhance the skin. Energy is given up to brown spots, blood vessels, and redness to gradually and gently lessen or eliminate these blemishes. The RadioFrequency energy also produces significant amounts of collagen, elastin and ground substances in the dermis, the thick undercarpet of the skin, resulting in a noticeable and significant smoothening of fine to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities of the
