FotoFacialRF – Color correction for face and body
The most advanced INTENSE PULSED LIGHT technology available today is the Elos™ FotoFacial RF by Syneron/Candela. This revolutionary technology allows for the efficient and safe removal of superficial pigmentation, both red and brown, and the elimination of small superficial blood vessels from the face and body.
Light and heat are carried to the precise depth of the targeted pigment with the help of radiofrequency. The light is absorbed by the pigmented target cell, which heats up, and then it dies. The body then naturally begins to break it down and remove the dead cells from the body. This highly accurate “selective targeting” via the “drone like” actions of the radiofrequency, allows the heat to bypass the cells which are not problematic, resulting in less down time, less discomfort and better results. This treatment can be used all over the body to remove sun damage and prominent unsightly small blood vessels.
It is now easier, safer, and more efficient to even out skin tone from such problems as rosacea, sun damage, aging, and acne scarring. An additional bonus is the restructuring and stimulation of collagen synthesis which tightens the skin over time.
This is an EXCELLENT treatment for active acne and acne scarring. Once weekly sessions can eliminate most cases of acne and start the repair of the scarring that often accompanies the condition.
How long does the procedure take?
The treatment itself takes approximately 30 minutes for an area the size of your face and neck.
Is it painful?
No. There is a sensation during the treatment that feels like a flash of heat and a slight tingling from the radiofrequency. It does not require any topical numbing cream. Everyone remarks how much less they feel the treatment than some of the older types of IPL.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Once the treatment is over, the pigmented lesions appear slightly darker for about 2 weeks, after which they begin to fade. Some mild crusting of the lesions is expected and can be easily covered with makeup. Most people require multiple treatments to get at the deeper layers of pigmentation, and they are generally done at 3-4 week intervals, however you will see improvement even after the first treatment. This treatment series is best done in the Fall and Winter and completed before significant exposure to the sun is going to resume.
What is the cost?
Treatments start at $500 per session for the whole face. Face and chest together $700
I have very sensitive skin, will I have to take off work?
The first time I treat anyone, I am very conservative. However, this is a very well-tolerated treatment even for those with sensitive skin. You will not have to take off work.
Why is this better than traditional IPL/Photofacial treatments?
The addition of radiofrequency allows for TARGETED destruction of the pigmented cells, allowing for less treatment discomfort, less risk of burning, and quicker, better results. But Old school IPL is still the best in pigment correction without down time.

Dr. Jame’ will Change your Life! – Dr. Jame’ and the Wellpath staff are AMAZING. I started seeing Dr. Jame’ 8 years ago with crazy hairy legs/bikini/underarms and a sun damaged blotchy face. She has changed my life!!! Got rid of all my unwanted hair and I only need a touchup AT MOST once a year. I never shave. The dark spots on my face are gone (the result of IPL and peels) and my winkles have softened considerably with my recent few treatments of Refirme facial tightening. But, i have to say that the best thing about going to Wellpath is Dr. Jame’ herself. She seriously has the BEST bedside manner. Instead of feeling like you are having a treatment done, it’s like you are hanging out with your girlfriend or therapist (take your pick depending on what kind of day you are having!). Completely unpretentious medical spa with a Zen decor, the nicest staff, and a great new location. 100% recommend.

The Time Is Near – I have been going to the Wellpath since May 2008. I have dealt with vicious acne for 10 and a half years. After spending all this time associating with one doctor after another and being told by one, “there is nothing you get do about acne you got to live with it”, which is totally unacceptable and unprofessional. Of course I did not listen to that. I started to do my homework and came across Jame Heskett, someone I wish I met a long time ago. I have went under numerous Isolaz, IPL, and peels. With each passing treatment my skin has just gotten better and better. Now it is dramatically clear including dark pigments and pit marks. The service is great, Jame charges no consultation fee, answers questions along the way and the reliability is excellent. When it is time for your appointment, it is your time and your time only. Nothing matters but you. Jame takes her time to make sure, you get a full entire treatment. Everyone is so nice. No arguments, no hassles, no runarounds. Jame has taken such an immense weight off me that had took such a complete and total overall of my entire life. Jame is literally a “life saver”.

Great doctor, Amazing results, Zero Attitude — Best Spa Bar None! – II have been a client of Dr. Jame’s for almost four years and I recommend her and Wellpath without reservation. Dr. Jame is extremely knowledgeable and capable. I have had laser hair removal on most parts of my body and it has been more effective than I could have ever imagined. I have not had to shave my legs in years!!! She has changed this hairy Italian gal’s life! I also have had both IPL and peels done on my face for a good amount of sun damage and dark spots. The treatments have vastly improved both the texture and the glow of my skin. My mom always says that my skin has never looked better. I look more refreshed and my skin has literally been transformed. In addition to the amazing results from treatments, I also cannot say enough about Dr. Jame’s “bedside manner” and her wonderful staff. She REALLY cares about her clients and puts her heart and soul into making sure you are happy with the results. She really puts you at ease and she just exudes something that makes you feel completely relaxed. If you want a warm, friendly and down to earth place with zero attitude, a caring staff and an awesome and professional doctor, this is the place for you. P.S. My mom goes to Leda for eyebrow waxes every time she is in town and LOVES them.
