IPL/AFT Photo Rejuvenation

Have you been wanting to restore a youthful appearance to your skin without having to undergo invasive treatments and a lengthy recovery? Our IPL (intense pulsed light), or AFT (advanced fluorescent technology) skin rejuvenation treatments can help take years off your appearance and renew a youthful glow with minimal downtime and maximum benefits. IPL/AFT treatments are available at The Museum Spa & Laser Center in Raleigh.

Who Should Consider IPL/AFT Skin Rejuvenation?

We currently offer AFT photo-facial treatments to effectively treat rosacea, facial flushing, red chests and necks, brown spots, sun damage and irregular skin pigmentation of most skin types. Photo damaged skin with hyperpigmentation (brown spots), enlarged pores, and telangiectasia (veins) can be improved with AFT treatments. Visible improvement is achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk. During the treatment, light energy delivers a series of gentle pulses to the skin non-invasively. The light passes harmlessly through the skin and is absorbed by spots and lesions. The abnormal cells are destroyed, leaving only healthy tissue. AFT also stimulates the growth of collagen, can decrease pore size, and gives skin a youthful appearance.

How Long Is Each Treatment? How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Because of AFT photo rejuvenation’s short treatment time, quick effects and lack of downtime, AFT therapy is one of our most popular treatments. A session lasts about 20-30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. Typically, three to five sessions are scheduled at four week intervals. Some may be satisfied with the results of five sessions, and some may desire additional sessions.

Is AFT Photofacial Painful?

The treatment feels like a small rubber band snapping against the skin, with a potential lingering burning/tingling sensation for up to six hours after treatment.

What Can I Expect Before Treatment?

Prior to an AFT treatment you should be aware of your last sun exposure and of any medications you are currently taking. The light that penetrates the skin with the AFT treatment can have an adverse effect if these matters aren’t taken into consideration. Your laser nurse will review these with you at each treatment.

What Can I Expect Atter Treatment?

You may immediately return to your normal routine and even apply makeup. However, avoidance of sun exposure is strongly recommended or permanent pigmentation changes may occur. Side effects of AFT Photofacial may include temporary redness or swelling. Any potential swelling should be minimal and can be treated with cold compresses. The “coffee ground” spots (shattered melanin rising to the surface) in the treated area will flake off in approximately two weeks.
