Photo Rejuvenation is a non-surgical and non-invasive process introduced to fight certain skin conditions which involve skin pigmentation, sun damaged skin, redness, wrinkles and fine lines, rosacea and broken capillaries.
SYMPTOMS PHOTO REJUVENATION TREATS EFFECTIVELY:
Flushing: It efficiently reduces the level of flushing up to 75% for almost all the patients treated at the clinic.
Erythema: It solves the problem of facial erythema (covers face, neck and chest) in around 5 sessions.
Sun Damage and Photo Ageing: A few series of sessions can reduce the harmful effects of sun exposure and photo ageing which includes irregular pigmentation, fine wrinkling and freckling.
Rosacea: With this treatment, patients with rosacea symptoms can recover around 60% from the skin condition.
Non-facial sun damage: Other than face, it also rejuvenates chest, forearm, hands, dorsal and legs damaged by sun exposure.
Acne Scarring: it effectively resolves the problem of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation of acne scarring.
HOW DOES THE LASER TREATMENT IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OF BLOOD VESSELS, ROSACEA AND AGE SPOTS/FRECKLES?
The laser/IPL device emits a range of light waves that are then tuned and targeted at haemoglobin (the red blood cells in the blood vessels) or melanin (the brown pigment in freckles and age spots). The light beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by either haemoglobin or melanin resulting in damage to the vessel wall or fragmenting of melanin pigment.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM PHOTO REJUVENATION TREATMENTS?
After your first treatment, you can expect to see some redness, darkening of brown spots, and light swelling. These symptoms will resolve in several hours to one week. Makeup can be immediately applied, if desired. After the treatment, your skin will feel smoother and have a more even tone. A gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing, age spots, and fine lines will be more visible after each treatment.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS FROM A PHOTO FACIAL LAST?
The depends on how much sun exposure your skin gets after your laser treatments. If you are in the sun a lot and do not use sunscreen, the underlying issues, whether they are redness or brown spots, will return.
HOW DOES AN IPL TREATMENT INCREASE COLLAGEN?
The light bypasses the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) and gently heats the cells in the deeper layer of skin (dermis). These cells, called fibroblasts, start to produce more collagen, which improves texture and fine wrinkles.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The main side effects are mild, temporary swelling, redness, an accentuation of the brown spots, crusting, and an occasional bruise or small superficial blister (like a sunburn blister).
