Photofacials are perfect for those who have been struggling with sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and even enlarged pores. Our photofacials are performed with the top of the line laser, the Alexandrite laser in the Gentle Max Pro, in order to maximize results for our clients!
Here’s some of our frequently asked questions below. For more information, please feel free to contact us, or book a FREE consultation online and meet our amazing estheticians in person.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
During the treatment you should expect residual warmth following a sensation similar to an elastic band snap. With all of our free consultations we perform a test patch, so you can feel exactly what it feels like!
WHEN WILL I NOTICE RESULTS?
You will start to notice results in about a week. The areas that are pigmented will become darker and eventually flake off. This process takes roughly 1-2 weeks.
HOW DOES a photofacial WORK?
Our photofacial uses light energy to generate heat in the skin to help break up unwanted pigmentation and stimulate collagen production.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Depending on your skin, we recommend anywhere from 3-5 treatments. Semi-annual touch ups may also be required in order to treat any new pigmentation.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Please see our pricing below.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT FROM THIS LASER TO OTHERS?
If photofacials haven’t worked for you in the past, you may have been treated with a laser that isn’t powerful enough. Our Alexandrite laser deeply penetrates the skin, in order to keep your skin safe, while breaking up the pigmentation.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
Immediately after a photofacial treatment, there may be some mild redness and swelling, and makeup can be applied right after if desired. However, your skin may be sensitized and you must wear sunscreen after the treatment. We also encourage you to wear sunscreen in order to help prevent the sun damage from occurring.
IS EVERYONE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR a photofacial?
Not everyone is a good candidate for a photofacial. We only recommend photofacials for skin types 1-3. However, we have a multitude of different services, including peels, that are excellent for all skin types, and work on treating the same issues. If you aren’t sure whether a photofacial is right for you, we would encourage you to come in for a free consultation.

After lots of research, I chose skin forward to do my laser treatments. I am SO glad I did. Lou and Val are so professional, sweet, and funny! They’re knowledgeable and honest about all things laser + skin— believe me, I asked a ton of questions and they really knew their stuff! my results are amazing, too! It is such a great overall experience. I’ve also had a facial there and my skin never looked better! Definitely check them out if you’re in the market for skin or laser treatments.
Today was my third appointment at Skin Forward. I have had excellent service there from the first time I walked in to check it out. Louise is fantastic, as she has done my first two treatments. And today I had Val look after me. We had a laugh! And I am seeing excellent results from my laser treatments and great advice about keeping your skin healthy. Would recommend this place to anyone. Keep up the good work!
