Photo Facial Rejuvenation

(Now available at River Road and Sahuarita!)

Often referred to as "Photo Facial," this highly popular light technique is designed to treat a wide variety of skin conditions. Pulses of light are passed into the dermis of the skin and are selectively absorbed by brown and red pigments, resulting in a wide range of benefits including diminished age and liver spots, fine lines, redness, broken capillaries, freckles, minor sun damage, and spider veins.

Because light energy is used to improve the skin, there is no peeling of the outer skin layers and no down time. This powerful therapy can be used not only for the face, but also for the neck, chest, hands, arms, and other areas.


A photosensitizing agent called Levulan is applied to the area undergoing the Photo Facial for a short time before the treatment. The Levulan is absorbed selectively by those cells in the skin that produce pigment, and by blood vessels that make the skin red and cause rosacea. This treatment also decreases pore size and gives the skin a more even color and texture. When the energy from the Photo facial hits the skin, the Levulan in the affected cells is converted into a chemical that releases free oxygen radicals destroying these cells. Levulan multiplies the effect the Photo Facial treatment by targeting specific cells for destruction. While the results are dramatic, there is some "down time" associated with this treatment.


Levulan PDT results in significant improvement in moderate to severe cystic acne. Levulan acne treatment inactivates the bacteria that trigger acne, exfoliates the skin to unclog pores, and decreases the activity of overactive sebaceous glands in the skin.

This is exciting because sebaceous glands are the root cause in the formation of acne so it has a long lasting effect even on severe acne.
