What Is A Photofacial?

When you are concerned about how your complexion looks because of sun damage or dark spots, Instinct Holistic Medical Spa can offer you a skin analysis at our Bozeman, MT office to see if you'll benefit from a photofacial, which features a combination of intense pulsed light (IPL) and the Alma DyeVL pulsed dye laser. A photofacial is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin for adult women and men with hyperpigmentation issues on the face and neck. A photofacial may be a noninvasive procedure, but it can be highly effective and produce impressive results. Our team of experienced specialists uses pulses of light energy that raise the temperature of skin cells just enough to set off the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. As the nutrients take effect, you should begin to see a healthier complexion with an improved tone and fewer dark spots.

What Can I Expect During A Photofacial?

Ideal candidates for a photofacial treatment at Instinct Holistic Medical Spa may have a combination of problems with their skin, including sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), rough texture, large pores, redness, freckles, melasma, age and sun spots, or spider veins. Our aesthetic experts will examine your complexion during your first consultation to see if you will benefit from a photofacial using the trusted combined technology of IPL and the Alma DyeVL, a pulsed dye laser. A photofacial is performed at our Bozeman, MT office in about 20 – 30 minutes in our minor procedures room if no other treatments are performed. To prepare for the treatment, your technician will wash and dry your skin before protecting your eyes with special shields. The photofacial is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting pulses of light energy. While most patients may feel some discomfort during the procedure, it is generally tolerable for the short treatment time.

There is no downtime associated with a photofacial. You will leave our office with your complexion a little pink and swollen. This will decrease on its own as the day continues – it can be masked with makeup if you prefer. Instinct Holistic Medical Spa advises patients to apply an ointment on the treated skin to minimize any irritation and speed healing. It also helps to take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication to help reduce swelling. Over the next 2 – 5 days, the blemishes that rested under the skin will rise to the surface skin layers and then begin to flake off. It is crucial to keep your skin protected with sunscreen at all times after a photofacial and to not pick at the flaking skin. While you will see some visible improvements after your first treatment, your complexion will attain the best results after multiple treatments. Our team of experts suggests approximately 3 – 6 sessions scheduled around once a month at Instinct Holistic Medical Spa.


My esthetician was Jenna, and I do not have enough good things to say about her! She made my first time in here absolutely amazing and relaxing. I was a little nervous as I have never had a facial or dermaplaning done before and she explained everything she was doing and answered all of my questions without hesitation. 10/10!
