Photorejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment that utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL), lasers or photodynamic therapy to improve the appearance of the skin. It can transform red, blotchy, sun-damaged skin into an even, more radiant complexion. It helps reduce and treat common skin problems such as melasma, brown spots, liver spots, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea. It causes minimal discomfort and delivers excellent results.
- Reduces Hyperpigmentation and skin redness, creating an even and fairer complexion
- Makes the skin appear more radiant and youthful
- Helps reduce or eliminate wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin
- Assists in the healing of acne breakouts
- Eliminates acne-causing bacteria to minimize the occurrences of breakouts
- Increases blood circulation in the target area while reducing inflammation
- Helps speed up the healing process after invasive cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels
Light therapy through photorejuvenation has shown many benefits on the skin. As the skin tissues absorb light, the light energy stimulates the underlying cells to enhance the body’s natural process of cell regeneration. It works by simulating minor injuries, prompting the skin to renew itself and improve its texture.
The laser or IPL device also targets melanin (the skin’s brown pigment) and breaks it down to improve and lighten complexion. In the same way, light waves are absorbed by the red blood cells, specifically hemoglobin, which damages the blood vessel walls, making red colorations on the skin less visible.
IPL photorejuvenation targets deeper layers of the skin, so they are usually recommended along with more superficial treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Photofacial treatments are usually performed in a series of 3 to up to 6 treatments scheduled about one month apart.
