It’s a photo facial that reduces fine lines and dark spots, as well as redness. They take 45 min. to do, there is no down time. Your skin looks great after the first treatment, all though a series of six is recommended. They can do one every 4-5 days.
Radiancy™ FSD micro phototherapy uses very low light energy to target melanin and hemoglobin in the skin along with low heat to encourage new collagen formation. The result is a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles as well as lightening of sun and/or age brown spots. Micro phototherapy is non-ablative and treats all aspects of photo aging in most skin types. Micro phototherapy can be safely and comfortably used on your face and neck, arms, hands, and décolleté.
A traditional facial cannot reach the collagen layer that light can. FSD emits gentle pulses of light and heat to create a mild wound/heal effect in the collagen layer, causing collagen to react and renew. The addition of heat accelerates collagen renewal and helps open pores for better product absorbency.
An FSD treatment will smooth fine lines and wrinkles, increase elasticity, decrease pore size and create a more even skin tone.
Immediate: Increase in blood circulation Short Term: A subtle peeling effect, renewed balance between the dry and oily areas of the skin, homogenized skin tone Long Term: Rejuvenated appearance, better skin texture, fine line reduction, pore size reduction
Certain results will be almost immediate. But best results can be seen one month after the last session.
We recommend starting with a series of 6-8 facials performed 2 times a week over the course of 1 month. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need more or less of the recommended treatments.
Results are based on the natural aging process as well as after-care maintenance and procedures. The better you care for your skin, the longer the results will last. We recommend a monthly maintenance session to help maintain and enhance results.
Although you may feel and see results after 1 treatment, 6-8 visits are recommended for the best results.
With each train of pulses emitted by FSD, you will feel heat. As the number of pulses increases, heat will also accumulate. This means the number of pulses emitted is directly related to the heat sensation you will feel.
There should be no real discomfort associated with treatment you do feel slight heat with each pulse. If at any time you feel discomfort, let the technician know and treatment will be adjusted to fit your comfort zone.
The light is similar to a light bulb, only more intense. There are no harmful rays such as x-ray or UV rays.
An FSD treatment is a walk-in/walk-out procedure. Mild redness may be experienced by some people but this is to be expected and usually disappears, immediately. There is no recovery time needed unless combined with other facial treatments. However, we do recommend staying out of the sun and/or using sunscreen before and after your FSD treatments.
