Photorejuvenation, or Photofacial, is a treatment that uses intense pulsed light therapy to treat skin conditions, such as sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and much more. If you suffer from rosacea or irregular pigmentation, this treatment is for you! At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, we offer advanced photorejuvenation to reduce the appearance of these and other skin conditions, creating a rejuvenated look.
What is Photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation uses BroadBand Light (BBL™) to create a radiant complexion. During your 30-minute treatment, intense pulses of broad-spectrum light penetrate deep into the lower layer of your skin. The light targets the dermis to remove damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen production. Photofacials can improve the color and texture of your skin in one session. Photofacials are also excellent when paired with other treatments. One of our most sought-after treatment combinations is our Forever Young package. Our clients like to pair one of the following treatments with a photofacial to achieve the skin they love:
- Photofacial + Skin Tightening
- Photofacial + Chemical Peel
The combination of these treatments targets the outer layer of your skin, while the photofacial targets the deeper layers of your skin.

Am I a good candidate for a photo facial?
This treatment is ideal for most skin types. If you have acne or skin redness concerns, a photofacial is an excellent solution to reduce both and support a more even complexion. During your initial consultation, we’ll discuss if this is the right treatment for you. This treatment might not be the best option for people with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications. If you have concerns about medication, discuss them with your technician during your initial consultation and notify us if there are changes in future visits.
Are there any risks or side effects from photorejuvenation treatments?
Most of our clients experience little to no pain during treatment. You might feel a sensation like a slightly stretched rubber band snapping against your skin. BBL™ is one of the safest light-based treatments currently available. Typical side effects from this treatment are minor redness, swelling, and inflammation. These potential side effects should subside a few hours to a few days after treatment. You will notice your skin’s appearance improving as you recover. You may need multiple treatments depending on the area and condition you wish to treat. Photofacial requires little-to-no downtime, and you will see better results if you take the proper precautions in the sun and utilize a daily skincare regimen. We will inform you of all possible side effects and necessary aftercare associated with this treatment. Contact us today for a consultation.
