Photofacial: Q&AAsk a Question
Will Photofacial Help with Sun Damage?
I have sun damage (hyperpigmentation) on my upper lip. This happened after waxing my upper lip and not using sunscreen while traveling in Africa. I've gotten the spot to fade using Jan Marini Lightening gel but it still seems somewhat visible after I'm in the sun (even though I'm now obsessive about wearing sunscreen). I'm considering a Photofacial and wondering if this will work better for that deep damage. I've read some things about the possibility of a Photofacial making hyperpigmentation from sun damage worse. Any suggestions or advice?

Photofacial or Fotofacial are great treatments
