Facial Rejuvenation in Cincinnati, OH

The combination of a variety of treatments and products can produce remarkable changes in the appearance of facial skin. We use time-tested light treatments, Facial Rejuvenation: Photojuvenation and PhotoDynamic Therapy, combined with skin care products, skin treatments, Botox Cosmetic and skin fillers to gently give your face the more youthful and healthy boost you're looking for.

PhotoRejuvenation

Say goodbye to the effects of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and more. Thanks to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) Photofacial/Fotofacial treatments, gentle skin rejuvenation has never been easier! IPL™ Photorejuvenation and Levulan® Photodynamic Therapy are the latest in modern dermatology. If you are ready to transform red, blotchy skin into a radiant complexion, photofacial/fotofacial treatments might be the perfect dermatological procedure for you.

Performed only by trained medical professionals, a photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a 30-minute procedure involving a machine that emits intense pulses of light to penetrate all layers of the skin. During the photorejuvenation treatment, collagen and blood vessels under the top layer of skin constrict, reducing redness and age lines. A complete IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial treatment requires three to five full-face light sessions, spaced at three-week intervals. Patients report minimal discomfort, and the redness and facial swelling present after treatment is short-lived. The effects of a photofacial/fotofacial are gradual, and will be noticed over the few weeks following treatment.

IPL™ Photorejuvenation can be used to treat redness caused by rosacea,  hyperpigmentation, and facial veins, as well as the fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. Also, if your skin has been blemished by smoking, alcohol use, or hormonal changes, an IPL™ photofacial/fotofacial can smooth and refine your complexion.

IPL treatments are a safe and effective way to improve the signs of aging from the face, neck, chest, and hands. IPL treatments are customized to each individual's specific skin type and condition, providing the best possible results.

Any man or woman who shows the signs of aged and sun-damaged skin is a candidate for PhotoRejuvenation. Treatment feels like a rubber band snap, and topical numbing cream can be used for comfort if needed.

Levulan Blu U PhotoDynamic Therapy

PhotoDynamic Therapy is the use of a topical drug combined with a light source to provide a theraputic effect. We offer this Therapy with Levulan and BluLight or MultiLight IPL. This treatment is ideal for the patient who is seeing signs of photodamage - damage due to ultraviolet sun exposure.

For PhotoDynamic Therapy, the skin is thoroughly cleansed, and the Levulan applied using a specially designed sponge applicator. After an incubation period of approximately 30 minutes, the skin is exposed to the BluLight. There is little to no discomfort with this treatment. The following two days, it is imperative to stay out of direct sunlight or bright lighting, as the skin is still light sensitive. After a few days, peeling usually occurs, similar to that which follows a sunburn.

A typical treatment program is 3 treatments at 3 to 4 week intervals. PhotoDynamic Therapy and PhotoRejuvenation are often used together in a customized manner to achieve maximum result. Both treatments aim to stimulate collagen production in the skin by heating the layers of skin. Also, incorporation of Physician-grade skin care products is strongly recommended to increase results.
