PhotoRejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin.

In Ailesbury Clinic, we have a choice of photorejuvenation lasers.

1. PhotoFacial™ technique is delivered by the Quantum IPL

2. FotoFacial™ RF procedure is delivered by the Aurora IPL

What is the difference between the Quantum and the Aurora?


The Quantum uses broadspectrum light to target defects within the skin while the Aurora™ device uses this and radiofrequency. This method, which marries all benefits of intense pulsed light and optical energy is called ELOS (Electrical Optical Synergy). This is used for the treatment of vascular and pigmented discolorations with the wrinkle and tightening benefits of RF.

PhotoRejuvenation is the only procedure that can treat vascular redness, rosacea, open pores, pigmented brown spots, sun damage, skin texture, and collagen structure all at once.

What are the indications for FotoFacial™ treatments?
FotoFacial™ treatments are beneficial in the treatment of the following:

  • Treatments effectively reduce redness and flushing.
  • Sun damage (Photo-aging). Treatments reduce fine wrinkling, freckling and irregular pigmentation.
  • Treatments smooth skin and reduce pores.
  • Treatments reduce irregular pigment and even skin tone.
  • Rosacea - FotoFacial™ treatments reduce the overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries and improve the breakouts of this common chronic facial condition.

What areas can be treated?
FotoFacial™ treatments can be used on any part of the skin. They are especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck, and chest.

What results can I expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible aging from the sun can expect to see their sking become smoother with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots. Many people with rosacea see an improvement in breakouts and are able to decrease or discontinue their medications.

What are FotoFacial™ treatments like?
Each treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected. People with more sensitive skin may prefer to use EMLA¨, a topical anesthetic cream. When EMLA is used 30 to 60 minutes before treatment there is almost no discomfort with treatment.

There is no discomfort after treatments. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots generally appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours to a few days.

How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment, your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Five treatments are performed for optimal results. Some patients will benefit from additional treatments.
