man getting a Photofacial done

Our photofacial treatment can help even your skin tone and reduce the appearance of certain skin conditions, including sun damage. We target red and brown spots using an intense pulsed light (IPL) on the face, neck, shoulders, back or hands.

Photofacial is ideal for treating:

  • Brown spots
  • Broken capillaries
  • Spider veins
  • Facial redness
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Acne scars

Photofacial treatment provides a more even skin tone and brightens your skin. You may require one to three treatments depending on your skin type and the results you want to achieve.

Although the process works like our laser resurfacing treatments, we do not recommend photofacial treatment for people with darker skin tones. One of our skin care specialists can determine which treatment would work best for you.

The Lancaster General Health Experience

What to expect during a photofacial

To stimulate your body’s collagen growth and natural healing process, our aesthetician first uses a handheld device to warm your skin. Then she applies the IPL to the treatment area in up to three brief flashes. The light reaches your outer skin an the layers beneath it.

The heating process breaks down red and brown pigments into smaller particles that your body eliminates through its immune cycles.

Photofacial cost

Depending on your treatment goals and other services you may undergo, photofacial costs vary. We will discuss the cost of a photofacial during your consultation, and we are available to help establish a photofacial payment plan that works for you.

Photofacial procedure risks

Photofacial treatments are non-invasive and generally very safe. Some people do experience slight discomfort, minor swelling and redness. These side effects normally subside a few hours after treatment. Our skin care specialist will discuss any risks prior to your procedure.
