Has anyone had experience with Foto Facials? I have been to a dermatologist for acne scarring and weird scarring/roughness on my upper lip from hair removal. There is also redness and it is really embarassing. He suggested a series of 3-5 but they are $500 each and I am reluctant to just 'try it'. Has anyone used them for scarring, and if so, what were your results? Any info appreciated!
I have rosacea (redness in my face) and have just signed up to get a series of epi facials, which are photo facials, to remove/reduce the redness. My first one is on Saturday, so I'll let you know how it goes. If you buy a series of them it costs less overall (though it's still expensive -- $2000 for 5 for me).
Hi There! i am the queen of photo facials.. fortunately by now, she gives me a big break and they're no more for me than a thorough facial and SO much more beneficial! They get rid of the brown AND red spots and give you an overall better texture. If she goes in a bit too agressively i get sore of brown like a light abrasion. Its all the pigment coming to the surface. After 4 days for me... i'm looking a lot better.
let me know what you thought... i've done it for about 2 years now.
I am only 27 but as I said in my last post am in the beginning stages of rosacea, and when I blush I get really, really red for a long time. I'm also just kind of blotchy. So, I had my first photo facial (called the "Epifacial") at Beauty Therapies in Cambridge, MA (winner of the Best of Boston every year) and I am SOOOO HAPPPYY!!!! Even just on the third day after my treatment my fiance noticed that I wasn't blushing after drinking wine (which I ALWAYS do). He had been skeptical, but now he's even excited for me. I was red after the treatment, but the redness faded by the end of the second day post procedure. I also had some dry patches which are back to normal today. Today, the fourth day, overall I am back to normal, but NO MORE BLUSHING!!! So, I am turning into their biggest advertiser now Good luck with it -- I think it's well worth the money.
