What is the Syneron E-Light Fotofacial™?


This hybrid laser system combines the best in both IPL and RF technologies to jumpstart your skin’s natural collagen production rate. This can have many benefits, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, and spider veins. Although other photofacial treatments can achieve improvement, this system produces substantial improvement with no downtime and fewer required treatments.

Who is a Candidate for the Syneron E-Light Fotofacial™?


FotoFacial RF treatments are beneficial in the treatment of the following cosmetic skin concerns for the face and body (also known as FotoBody™ RF treatments):

  • Rosacea, flushing, redness, ruddy complexion, broken capillaries, and spider veins of the face. All these “pink”, vascular-based conditions of the skin improve, on average, between 50-75% percent with FotoFacial RF treatments.
  • Sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, cholasma, mask of pregnancy, and multiple freckles. All these “brown”, melanin-based conditions of the skin improve, on average, 50-75% with FotoFacial RF treatments.
  • Chronic sun damage and photoaging improves by 50-75% with FotoFacial RF treatments.
  • Sun damage and aging signs of the hands, neck (poikiloderma), and chest can be improved by 50-75% percent with FotoBody RF treatments
  • Wrinkles and skin laxity. Unlike other more basic forms of photorejuvenation, the FotoFacial RF, with its synergy of IPL-RF energy, produces industry-leading, non-ablative wrinkle and skin laxity improvements of up to 70% without downtime; a claim that no other device or procedure has been able to boast.

How does the Syneron E-Light Fotofacial™ work?


Each pulse of the FotoFacial RF device, eLight or eMax, sends two types of energy into your skin– intense pulsed visible light and radio frequency energy– that act synergistically to enhance the skin. Energy is applied to brown spots, blood vessels, and redness to gradually and gently lessen or eliminate these blemishes. The radio frequency energy also produces significant amounts of collagen, elastin, and ground substances in the dermis, the thick undercarpet of the skin, resulting in a noticeable and significant smoothing of fine-to-moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities of the skin.

What Happens During the Syneron E-Light Fotofacial™?


FotoFacial RF treatments are simple, office-based treatments performed by Dr. Angelchik. The area to be treated is first covered with a very thin layer of non-gel, aqueous RF conductive medium. This thin layer of non-gel aqueous medium is very important to conducting the RF current into the skin efficiently and serves no cooling function, as the hand piece of the FotoFacial RF device is dynamically cooled to help protect the skin. Once the RF conductive medium has been applied, then the entire face, chest, hands, arms, or affected body part is treated with a gentle pulse of light and radiofrequency energy.

Each treatment takes about 30 minutes and involves pulses of bright, visible light and radiofrequency energy that are passed into the skin. Most patients require 5 or 6 FotoFacial™ treatments, performed every 3 weeks, to see the desired results. In certain skin types, a microdermabrasion treatment is performed between FotoFacial™ treatments to enhance the penetration of the light and radiofrequency energy.

How Can I Maintain My Results?


At the completion of the FotoFacial RF program, the skin will have achieved a noticeable and consistent degree of improvement that over 90% of patients are very happy with. Occasionally, some patients desire an even greater degree of improvement and these patients will sign up for additional procedures. Most FotoFacial RF patients only desire to maintain the nice skin enhancements they achieved from the program and, for these satisfied patients, a single maintenance FotoFacial RF treatment is recommended every 2-4 months to keep the skin looking vital, even, smooth, and youthful. Dr. Angelchik can also recommend the best in physician-grade products to boost your at-home care and extend your great results.
