A photofacial is a noninvasive, no-downtime procedure to correct virtually any superficial blemish. Rosacea, sun damage, freckles, age spots and acne are no match for this rejuvenating treatment. By using nonerosive light, a photofacial addresses damaged skin tissue or hyperpigmentation without harming healthy cells, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we are proud to offer photofacials right in our Los Angeles office. If you are looking for a refreshed appearance and healthy skin with no downtime, a photofacial may be the perfect option.

Photofacial overview and benefits

A photofacial is also called intense pulsed light (IPL). This is different from a laser, which only uses one wavelength of light. Instead, a photofacial uses what’s called broad-spectrum light, which reaches multiple layers of skin. It is applied with brief flashes, sometimes up to 2 or 3 on a single treatment area.

When the light flashes, it warms the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, as well as collagen growth underneath the skin. These two factors allow photofacials to address both the outermost surface of the skin as well as the tissues beneath it. This multi-faceted approach makes your skin look younger, smoother and more voluminous.

At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we use photofacials to effectively treat:

  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Liver spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged blood vessels

Photofacial procedure

As with any procedure performed at the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, a photofacial begins with a thorough consultation. During this time, your patient care coordinator reviews every aspect of your goals and performs an examination to sort out which treatment options will best suit your needs. It is an important part of our practice philosophy that we only deliver procedures that we truly feel will help a patient. Your initial consultation and examination help us get a total understanding of your unique case, allowing us to guide you through the proper cosmetic treatment.

Before treatment begins, your practitioner will apply a cooling gel to the surface of your face. This is to both protect your healthy skin cells and provide you with total comfort throughout the procedure.

Photofacials are usually done without anesthetic, but patients with sensitive skin may prefer a mild sedative to help with any pain. This aspect of your treatment will be discussed beforehand.

Now the IPL laser treatment begins. Using a specialized handpiece, your practitioner gently delivers the IPL to the appropriate treatment area. The light serves to treat superficial blemishes while also heating the underlying collagen layer, causing it to expand. With each pulse of light, your skin gets a jolt of beautifying energy, helping it to look and feel its best.

IPL can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.

After your photofacial

The purpose of a photofacial is to activate your body’s natural healing power. For this reason, the period after your IPL photofacial is as important as the procedure itself. Your practitioner will give you a series of guidelines to follow, and it is critical that you do this precisely. If you have questions or concerns following your photofacial, we are at your disposal. By continuing to provide you with care long after the procedure is over, we hope to deliver the best IPL photofacial Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
