What is Photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is the process of using light to treat facial redness and flushing from rosacea and discoloration from aging and sun damage. Treatments result in consistent, visible improvement of the skin with no downtime, little discomfort, and minimal risk.
What are treatments like?
A treatment generally lasts 15 to 30 minutes. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed and tiny capillaries may appear more visible. Brown spots may appear darker, but these disappear gradually in a matter of hours.
What areas can be treated?
Treatments can be applied on any part of the skin, but are especially effective in improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, and hands.
How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment, your skin will feel smoother and will have a more even tone. Best results are achieved after 4 or 5 treatments, depending on the condition of your skin.
What are the advantages of IPL over chemical peel?
Chemical peels will not reduce redness and flushing or dilated capillaries. Before the IPL technology came along, there was no effective treatment for flushing or facial or neck redness.
Who should get an IPL treatment?
- People who suffer from rosacea and experience flushing and redness of their skin.
- People with early aging changes and sun damage who want to recover the youthful glow of their skin.
- People who do not want to take the time off to heal from laser resurfacing or chemical peels.
