Laser Facial Q & A

What is a laser facial?

A laser facial uses targeted energy to stimulate the blood vessels and collagen in your skin to reduce signs of aging like fine lines and discoloration. Dr. Kerns uses an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) laser and a FotoFacial FR™ radio-frequency laser to help restore your youthful appearance.

While every patient has a unique experience, these innovative treatments are an effective method of reducing brown age spots, rosacea, and wrinkles. IPL works by triggering regeneration in the epidermis and dermal-epidermal layers of your skin. The regenerative process begins within 24 hours of your treatment, with the full effects becoming noticeable in a week to 10 days.

What happens during a laser facial?

You relax on a treatment table during your 30-minute laser facial. Dr. Kerns uses a handheld wand to direct the laser over your face. The light energy gently heats the first layers of your skin, the epidermis, and dermis. The laser also targets any find blood vessels that are causing redness and targets excess melanin responsible for sun damage and age spots.

As your facial continues, the laser triggers your body’s natural healing response, causing fresh cells to grow, including collagen, the natural substance that keeps your skin plump and smooth.

Can a laser facial be used elsewhere on my body?

Dr. Kerns most often performs laser treatments on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, and the backs of the hands. However, laser treatments similar to the laser facial can be performed on just about any part of your body.

How many laser facial treatments do I need?

Each patient has unique needs, but most have four to six laser facials to enjoy the optimal results. Dr. Kerns and her staff can perform the treatments at intervals of three to four weeks. You may decide to have additional treatments to address more severe concerns or to have regular laser facials to maintain a bright and youthful complexion.

How long is the recovery from an IPL procedure?

While you may experience some mild and temporary redness, laser facials are relatively gentle. You should be able to get right back to your normal activities following your laser facial.
