You’ve probably heard the term Fotofacial®, but what is it exactly and what can it REALLY do for you? Fotofacial, a non-invasive treatment created by well-known dermatologist, Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr, MD, uses broadband light (BBL) – a trademarked powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) – to address problematic skin.

To avoid this possible side effect after treatment, our aesthetic professionals generally do not recommend the Forever Young Fotofacial during the Austin summer season.
