MaxG PhotoFacial Skin Rejuvenation
Treatment of Skin Pigment and Blood Vessels (PhotoFacial)
The Cynosure ICON MAX G™ IPL photofacial harnesses the power of light to remove broken blood vessels on the face, redness caused by rosacea, and pigmentation caused by sun damage. This procedure is commonly referred to as a PhotoFacial.
Photorejuvenation is fast, with most treatments sessions lasting about 30 minutes. Depending on the patient’s condition, several treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results.
For our PhotoFacial we use The Cynosure ICON MAX G™ IPL, a powerful device that uses a unique filter on the IPL light focusing its energy on treating vessels and pigment without putting normal skin at risk.
The Cynosure ICON MAX G™ IPL treats:
- Treatment of sun spots and skin discoloration
- Treatment of broken blood vessels
- Rosacea Treatment
How it works?
Using the principle of selective photothermolysis, the photofacial treatments target different chromophores in the skin, which selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and yield the desired response. These optimal wavelengths of light clear vascular and pigmented lesions by targeting the chromophores of hemoglobin (for vascular lesions) and melanin (for pigmented lesions). These damaged lesions are then cleared by the body, removing the appearance of the lesion from the skin.
Description of session
The process is fast and simple. You will lie on a reclining chair, and a cool gel is applied to your face or the body area to be treated. Next, light pulses are applied to your skin in several passes. Our clients report that the sensation feels like a mild “snapping,” like a rubber band against the skin. Most people find the treatment easy to tolerate, but if you have a low pain threshold, we can do more for you. You will wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the light pulses produced by the system. Each session takes only about 30 minutes to perform.
