Regular facials are nice, but they don’t last forever. Why not spend a little extra for more long-term results?
What is a Photo Facial?
A photo facial is a light based treatment that rejuvenates the skin, other times called IPL (Intense Pulse Light) or Skin Rejuvenation. The pulsed light is made up of different wavelengths to penetrate different depths of skin. IPL has a number of different uses, but is generally for treating broken capillaries (spider veins), brown spots, overall redness, and has been proven to boost collagen, which plumps the skin for a fresher look.
Is it Painful?
Most people compare it to a rubber band snap however, at Acomoclitic Studio we use the Palomar Starlux 300, which has been reported by many of our clients as a slight pressure, but no pain. It requires no numbing.
What to Expect
Before the procedure, our staff will discuss what treatment is best for you, depending on skin type and tone. You’ll be given a set of goggles to protect your eyes from the flashes of light. A cool gel is often applied to the treatment area, both to lubricate the hand piece and help cool the skin during treatment. Your skin care specialist will then apply brief pulses of bright light to the skin through the hand piece.
Although it may take a series of treatments for best results, you’ll notice a difference (within a few days) after your very first visit.
How Long Does it Take?
The treatment is quick! It can take less than 30 minutes, depending on how large of an area is being treated. You could be in and out during your lunch hour!

Acomoclitic Studio charges $250 for face, $150 for neck, $300 for upper chest, $600 for face, neck and chest, $100 for hands and $200 for half arms. Prices can be determined for other areas like back or legs.
