“Turn Back the Clock” with the AFT Pulsed Light Advantage

Delivering gentle, subtle improvements, AFT pulsed light gives your skin a younger appearance.  Photo rejuvenation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today. AFT is not accompanied by an extended period of redness and swelling, nor does it involve ablation of the upper layer of skin.  AFT treatment requires no down-time and can be used to effectively reduce the visible signs of sun damage, age spots, as well as broken capillaries quickly and painlessly. Treatment generally involves a series of sessions and in order to maintain results most opt for one or two follow-up treatments annually.

How does AFT Pulsed light Technology work?

AFT’s selective pulsed light energy is absorbed by the target area, without damaging healthy skin.  With red and brown spots the light energy heats the melanin and causes it to fragment.  The melanin fragments are then absorbed by the body and eliminated.  Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.

What to Expect?

First, the treated area is cleansed and a cool gel is applied.   The light pulse is then delivered with little to no discomfort.   After treatment, the gel is removed and the skin is cleansed, finishing creams applied and you can resume all regular activities immediately.

Does it hurt?

While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate AFT pulsed light treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin.  We do apply a topical anesthetic to make even the most sensitive patients comfortable.
