Many people are annoyed by rosacea and/or small red vessels on their face. Others have brown spots or “sunspots” that develop from sun exposure making skin appear older. Some people complain of fine wrinkling that makes them look older than they are or than they feel.

Syneron™ ELOS FotoFacial®

The ELOS FotoFacial® laser is capable of treating a number of skin issues. It utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) and radiofrequency energy to maximize treatments. By utilizing different settings, this treatment can greatly reduce the brown spots, the redness from rosacea, or the little red vessels (spider vessels). There are also skin tightening settings that can improve the skin tone of the face for a special event.

Depending on your skin’s condition and your goals, one or multiple treatments may be recommended to give you the improvement of skin appearance you desire.

The Treatment

This treatment is well tolerated, and requires no down-time afterward. The treatment can feel like small rubberband snaps, and is performed without numbing cream.


Often times the pigment spots or vessels that are treated become darker after treatment, and can be easily covered with makeup. Over a few days to a week, treated spots/vessels resolve and fade to leave you with youthful, healthy looking skin. It is important to practice sun protection after any light or laser treatment of the skin.
