At Cole Aesthetics, our highly trained professionals utilize the most advanced PhotoFacial system that gently delivers precise amounts of light energy through the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, it softens the appearance of aging skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased and the redness associated with rosacea and redness can be dramatically reduced. PhotoFacial treatments restore a more youthful appearance and improve skin texture without any downtime – allowing you to return to work or most leisure activities immediately.

How Quickly Will I Recover?
You can resume most regular daily activities immediately and may start to see some improvement beginning immediately. We apply Aloe to your skin and a Natural sunscreen before you leave to help insure your skin is protected and does not develop any issues immediately post-treatment. You need to stay out of direct sun for two weeks. Also, avoid anything hot for three days; hot yoga, steam showers, Jacuzzi’s, intense work-outs, etc.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Most people experience a mild sunburn-like sensation after a IPL treatment, and it rare cases it is accompanied by minor swelling. These side effects are temporary, usually lasting from 2 to 24 hours. You may get ‘micro-crusting’ that occurs. This is the pigmentation leaving the face. Your pigmentation will become darker and then slough off and then become lighter.

OPT™ Photorejuvenation is cleared by the FDA and is one of the safest light-based facial treatments available. It is noninvasive. Most patients experience little or no pain during the procedure. Some patients have reported that the light pulses feel similar to a light “snap” from a rubber band.
