Dr. Toft was the first facial plastic surgeon to offer photofacial treatments, an exciting skin care technique, to Sacramento, CA residents. The photofacial treatment utilizes intense pulsed light to reduce broken blood vessels, lighten brown spots, shrink pores, stimulate collagen and help fine lines with no down time. The blood vessels can be from Rosacea, sun exposure, trauma, previous steroid use, or other circumstances. Whatever the cause, they will respond to the photofacial series. The other amazing benefit is that it will shrink large pores. No other modality is as effective as the photofacial treatment.

Photofacials are usually performed in a series of five treatments. These treatments take approximately 30 minutes, and can give you a slight windburn feel and mild temporary redness. Otherwise, there are no side effects and no downtime. We use the photofacial treatment on the face, neck, chest and hands. People often get their treatment during their lunch hour then return to work, including the staff at Dr. Toft's office!
Patients will notice a gradual improvement in hyperpigmentation and a more even complexion within the first week or two after their photofacial with full results appearing within approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
