Post 5 Treatments
Is your skin showing signs of sun damage? Dr. Chilcott and the staff at Morpheus Medical Aesthetics can eliminate unwanted spider veins and brown spots caused by sun damage while stimulating healthy, new collagen with Photo Facial treatments.
Photo Facials, also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Fotofacial or SRA color correction, deliver high-intensity, computer-controlled pulses of light that penetrate your skin and heat the sub-surface layers.
Photo Facial treatments address a wide variety of skin conditions:
- Sun damage
- Skin texture
- Broken capillaries
- Brown spots
- Age spots
- Sun-induced freckles on the hands, chest and face
- Excels in helping the reduction of fine wrinkles and large pores
What should I expect during a Photo Facial?
After determining whether a Photo Facial is an appropriate treatment for your skin type and concerns, a 30 to 45 minute appointment will be scheduled. We apply a topical numbing agent and use a cooling machine to decrease the discomfort of the laser pulses, which feels like "rubber band snapping" on your skin’s surface.
Photo Facials are capable of two processes at once. During treatment, the IPL wavelength is optimized so that the energy is absorbed by 1) unwanted melanin and 2) small broken blood vessels. The heat absorption causes the melanin cells to shatter and the broken vessels coagulate.
For some clients, we recommend a second or third IPL treatment to even out extensive brown spots. You can enhance your treatment by using skin-lightening topical treatments before and after your Photo Facial. Preserving and protecting your beautiful new skin with sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more is always recommended.
Cost: $500 per treatment area for one session
