Skin rejuvenation offers New York Residents a simple way to maintain youthful and vital skin. We offer a range of treatments depending on the level of intervention that is needed to restore the vitality of the skin allowing you to maintain healthy and vital skin. The photofacial is a non-surgical treatment from Beauty Fix Medspa.it is painless, convenient, and immediately effective.
The fotofacial using IPL (Intense Pulse light) helps reverse the damage done by the New York City environment and the pace of modern day living. Exposure to airborne pollutants and sun radiation combine with the natural aging process to create fine lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color of our skin.
In our Gramercy New York City clinics we use the state of the art Photo Rejuvenation equipment. Our Specialists use specialized hand pieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as sunspot removal and Vessel Clearance.
The Photofacial laser will emit a pulse of light that is delivered to the skin using a specially designed cool handpiece. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the blood in visible vessels, and converted to heat. The heat dissolves the cells that create the pigment and shrinks the vessels
Sunspots/ Sun damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed form the skin within 1-2 weeks.
Rosacea: Skin tone will be more normal, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment.
Spider veins: Vessels normally disappear right after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10-14 days.
For optimal results several treatments will be typically required to achieve complete clearance of sunspots, rosacea and vessels..

PHOTO FACIALS FREQUENTLY ASKED
1. What results can I expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible ageing from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots. Many people with rosacea see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medication. Those with flushing and blushing should see that it takes more to make them flushed and even when they do flush the redness is less severe and settles much quicker than before. Usually patients also get rid of the discomfort or sensation that they feel in the cheeks as they flushing.
2. What are treatments like?
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected during treatment but this quickly subsides. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed and tiny capillaries and brown spots may appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours to a few days.
3. How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Between three to five treatments are performed for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional treatment.
4. What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some very minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
