Best Treatment Around...

I'm Canadian and the price of the photofacial...

I'm Canadian and the price of the photofacial varied. I saw no difference in the results based on price. I would get the most reasonably priced one out there.

I decided to get the treatment because of the non invasive quality and wanted a result that was me, but maybe a bit more bright and bushy tailed.

I saw results after the first session. I notice the biggest concentration of brown spots the first time which, for lack of a better word, fell off. I believe they have intensities and I am someone with a fairly high pain tolerance plus I wanted the biggest bang for my buck.

Downtime? Redness for two or three hours.

Pain during treatment, like some schoolboy flinging elastic bands at your face. Not pleasant, but you will live to do it again!

Loved the result, but it does come back with sun exposure somewhat. Easy to avoid with Canadian winters but as an avid tennis player a bit harder to avoid in the summer.

My advice?

Throw out your expensive creams and save up for these treatments. I see the difference and my daughter actually asked me if I was doing something to myself, that my skin was looking great.

There is something nice about coming out of the shower and looking at your face looking fresh.

In the winter where I can avoid the sun I don't use foundation... Anymore... The results had to be noticeable to me to change a habit such as this.

Name not provided

Pretty much the same with any of those who performed the procedure.

The Hummingbird is the cheapest so far at 100 bucks pretty much all the time. Their facilities have less overhead, the properties are not in the areas that would charge a lot of rent but the insides are quite nice and professional. Since it was my first time at their facility they went easy ...I'll let you know how the next one goes in a month. Luck to all of this and I think this treatment is the best since sliced bread.

Actually I am looking at the Hummingbird Spa Centers which have been taken over from the Spa Club. They have specials and since it is a chain have clinics all over. Currently the special is 150 Canadian for a photofacial plus a microdermabrasion. (minus the currency difference....it's pretty reasonable) The two separate treatments are spaced two weeks apart. Do a search for Spa Club and you will find out the closest center. In Missaugua, a suburb of Toronto...I believe they were offering a special of five treatments for 600 dollars at one time. I had it there and it was fine. In January the Spa Club (formally) had a special including an "accent thingy" something you would have to read about, and a photofacial and a dermabrasion for 250. Hope this helps...

can you reveal the name of the doctor that did the treatment for you in Ontario? It seems so much cheaper then in the US, it may be worth the drive.

I am not sure if you are still interested in the photofacials, but I do have a suggestion.

Subscribe to sites such as Groupon, I know that services the States. There are others in Canada such as WagJag, LivingSocial.

Photofacials come up a lot with those they are associated with. You get the treatments way discounted because the spas and clinics will do so in order to attract new customers.

One of the best Photofacials I ever got was from one that charged 45 dollars, I could buy up to three.
