Your beautiful skin, restored.

FotoFacial is an innovative treatment that can target a variety of common skin problems – ultimately revealing a smooth and younger-looking face. Dr. Moran frequently recommends this treatment for patients who want to address:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin texture issues
  • Dilated capillaries
  • Brown spots
  • And more

How does FotoFacial work?

FotoFacial employs a unique combination of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and powerful Radio Frequency energy that acts synergistically to enhance the skin. This remarkable and innovative treatment modality has increased in popularity and recognition to the point where it is now one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It uses an ELOS (electro-optical synergy) technology that is FDA- approved for facial rejuvenation. The core technology and the latest advancements in it were all developed in Silicon Valley.

What FotoFacial Treats

Sun Damage

Most people love being out in the bright sunshine, but this eventually takes a toll on the skin. Evidence of sun damage includes dilated capillaries, brown spots, coarse skin texture, and diffuse redness on the face, neck, chest, and hands, as well as early wrinkling around the eyes, cheeks, and mouth. Nashville men and women suffering from noticeable signs of sun damage are ideal candidates for a FotoFacial. After a series of treatments, the condition of sun-damaged skin is greatly improved, with wrinkles and fine lines reduced and lesions being decreased.


FotoFacial is also a highly effective solution for patients suffering from rosacea, a common skin affliction manifested by facial redness, spontaneous uncontrolled flushing and blushing, and acne breakouts. While topical and oral antibiotics reduce the associated acne breakouts, until FotoFacial RF there was no effective treatment for the redness, flushing, and blushing. Now, this common skin disorder is readily and effectively treated by FotoFacial RF. It can reduce redness by as much as 80 percent while also substantially improving acne breakouts.

What to Expect

Your FotoFacial RF treatments will be performed in the privacy of our Nashville area office. No anesthesia is necessary, though a cooling gel will be applied to ensure your comfort. You will also need to wear protective eyewear during the procedure. The entire appointment will take about one hour, and most patients need three to five treatments spaced one month apart.

Results will become apparent toward the end of your series of treatments. There is very little downtime after FotoFacial sessions, and you will be able to return to work and your normal daily routine right away. With that said, some redness or darkening may persist for a few days, before eventually fading.
