WHAT IS A PHOTOFACIAL?
A photofacial is a light-based treatment that rejuvenates the skin, other times called IPL (Intense Pulse Light) or Skin Rejuvenation.
WHAT DOES A PHOTOFACIAL DO?
The light waves used in a photofacial treat acne, brown spots and fine lines. The pulsed light is made up of different wavelengths to penetrate different depths of skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Like magic! Now you see it, now you don’t! It seems miraculous, but there is science behind it on a cellular level. The light waves selected have been scientifically proven to treat freckles and pimples, making them fade or disappear within days after the treatment.
DOES IT HURT?
Most people compare it to a rubber band snap. However, at Moxie Sugar and Laser 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 SHOULD I 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 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 after your very first visit.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The treatment is very quick – for example, it takes less than 20 minutes to treat a face. The treatment itself is virtually pain free and is frequently compared to a warm massage.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Moxie 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. We charge $25 per spot if you only have a couple pimples or brown spots you want treated.
