Laser Facial in Fairfax, VA
How does a laser facial work?
The state-of-the-art Elite+ system delivers focused laser energy to the deep layers of your skin without damaging your skin’s surface. The heat from the laser promotes the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for your skin’s elasticity and strength. The laser also enhances circulation and destroys the cells that cause hyperpigmentation and other blemishes.
What are the benefits of laser facial treatment?
The skilled team at Contours LaserSpa uses the Elite+ to perform facial treatments with the following benefits:
- Lightening dark spots and freckles
- Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
- Firming sagging skin
- Improving the appearance of spider veins
The team can include laser hair reduction in your treatment to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face, such as the eyebrow region, upper lip, cheeks, or chin.
Are laser facial treatments painful?
Laser skin treatments with Elite+ may cause some mild discomfort, such as tingling or a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. However, the high-powered light energy of the Elite+ allows your practitioner to provide effective treatments in a short amount of time, so sessions are generally tolerable. If you have sensitive skin, you can request that your specialist apply a topical numbing cream before beginning your laser facial.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime required after a laser facial because the Elite+ has precision settings to control the focus and intensity of the light therapy so the surface of the skin and tissues around the target area aren’t affected. It’s gentler than older laser tools and doesn’t carry the risks of more invasive surgical procedures.
Following your appointment, you may experience some mild redness or swelling, similar to a light sunburn, but these typically subside within a day or two.
How many laser facial treatments will I need?
Your Contours LaserSpa expert will discuss your goals and evaluate your skin in order to design a treatment plan that best meets your needs. In most cases, 2-3 treatments are needed to achieve the skin revitalization you’ve been seeking. In some instances, your specialist may recommend more treatments for optimal results.
