What is Photo rejuvenation?
Photo rejuvenation is a treatment that uses intense pulse light (IPL), a non-laser light source, to fix pigmentation issues like sun damage, brown spots, freckles and vascular abnormalities such as redness, broken capillaries, and rosacea. Photo rejuvenation also minimises pore sizes and fine lines, stimulant dormant skin cells and promote new collagen to grow.
IPL technology works by emitting high-intensity pulses of broadband light deep into your skin without making any harm to the surface area. A high-advanced built-in computer helps to control the frequency range of lights to target and collapse damaged blood vessels and or melanin, while normal surrounding skin tissue is hardly affected.
Since IPL uses a range of wavelengths as opposed to laser treatment, photo rejuvenation is considered an ideal treatment to treat large skin areas with discoloration. This treatment is often used by patients for skin resurfacing at home to treat discoloured areas of face, chest, arms or back.
Who is an ideal candidate for photo rejuvenation?
This treatment is the ideal choice for people who have pale to medium or olive toned skins and want to refine their skin texture as well as discolorations caused by different factors such as sun damage, acne, aging, rosacea, etc. This skin resurfacing treatment is not suitable for people with dark skin tones as they may have a risk of adverse pigmentation issues.
This is not a good choice for pregnant women or patients who have to take Accutane for the past Six months. Certain medications, particularly blood thinners, may increase the risk of side effects, so it is necessary to talk to your doctor about your medical history.
How does photo rejuvenation works?
Photorejuvenation is an advanced dermatological technique that uses light therapy to not only treat conditions like those listed about but to also tone, soften an even enhance the overall appearance of the skin.
The therapy mainly involves applying a series of laser treatments to target areas. These IPL rays get absorbed by the problems under your skin. The heat generated by the IPL treatment triggers your body’s natural healing process. The result of treatment is just similar to skin resurfacing at home that leaves your skin looking healthy and beautiful.
Many of the people who want to get smoother brighter skin well, now you can get it at home. Some of the newest anti-aging innovations offer the same technology that you can now also get by purchasing online.
