How photofacials work

It’s natural to wonder how many photofacials you’ll need, but each Forever Young BBL treatment plan is unique. Your provider may recommend one or multiple sessions, based on factors such as the intensity of your symptoms and your desired r.vesults. Once you reach your preferred look, you may benefit from a yearly maintenance treatment.

Safety of photofacials

While all aesthetic treatments bring some amount of risk, photofacials are a lot less risky than invasive procedures such as surgery. Possible side effects — such as bruising, blisters, and scabbing — tend to be temporary and easily manageable. Working with a skilled and experienced practitioner is the best way to lower your risk for unwanted complications.
