How Does Photo Rejuvenation Work on the Skin?

donnaIt has now become easier to look your absolute best at any age. That is because cosmetic dermatology treatments such as photo rejuvenation are now much more accessible. With this treatment, you can have smoother, more even complexion, better skin texture free from sun damage and other skin imperfections.

What exactly is photo rejuvenation?

This cosmetic procedure utilizes Intense Pulsed Light. It is usually done to improve the appearance of the hands, chest, neck and face. It can help treat and correct multiple skin issues including the following.

  • Rosacea
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Photo aging
  • Broken capillaries
  • Flushing
  • Mild acne scar
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dark spots
  • Enlarged pore size
  • Blotchy complexion
  • Freckles
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Redness on face and neck

The best news is there is literally no down time for this procedure. You can walk in and out of the clinic and proceed with your regular routine for the rest of the day.

How does it work?

As mentioned, photo rejuvenation uses intense light. This intense light is applied along with gentle pulses depending on the area being treated. The light is made to penetrate the skin without damaging it.

The light is absorbed through the dilated vessels. The heat that comes from the intense light damages the vessel. The body is then prompted to resume its natural healing process. At this stage, the damaged vessel or lesion will either darken first before being flaked off or it will be absorbed by the body.

What to expect from the treatment?

It does not take a lot of time to complete the session. It may take between 15 and 45 minutes. The concerned area will have to be cleansed first. The application of a cool gel comes next. Then, the treatment starts.

After, the gel will be removed first then comes another round of cleansing the skin. Before you leave, a sunscreen will be applied on the treated area. For best results, 3 to 5 sessions may be recommended.
