EpiFacial Skin Rejuvenation
The skin rejuvenation advance you’ve been waiting for…
Skin aging is a natural occurrence. Sun exposure and UV rays can damage collagen and elastic fibers, resulting in skin color changes, fine wrinkles and facial veins.
EpiFacial can help reverse the signs of aging and the effects of other chronic skin conditions . . .
Although skin rejuvenation techniques have been around for years, EpiFacial represents a dramatic new advance in the science of improving damaged skin.
Unlike with other procedures, there are virtually no side effects or downtime after the EpiFacial procedure. The EpiFacial is a true non-invasive photo skin rejuvenation technique, which diminishes hyperpigmentation, fine lines, age spots, spider veins, and signs of rosacea.
The EpiFacial™ can be used to diminish skin surface imperfections such as large pore size, fine wrinkles, and rough textured skin.
The EpiFacial” uses Intense Pulsed Light, which stimulates collagen production. Usually four treatments are needed at intervals of approximately three weeks, and re-treatments may be required as the need arises. An evaluation is always necessary since not all skin colors, nor skin conditions, can be treated.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
Most people, including children, may be treated. However, Dr. Ellerin should determine if your condition is suitable for the treatments. This may require a consultation visit to Ellerin Dermatology’s Burlington, MA office.
What is a treatment like?
Treatment involves a pulsed light, similar to the flash of a camera. You may feel a slight pinch or snap of a rubber band. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required.
How many treatments are required?
Freckles, age spots, and sunspots often require only one treatment. Other blemishes may take one to three treatments. Each session generally lasts 15-20 minutes.
Are there restrictions on my activity after treatment?
You can return to work the same day and resume all regular activities. You should limit exposure to the sun, and sun block is highly recommended.
