Everything You Need to Know Before Opting for Photorejuvenation

Photo rejuvenation includes a variety of non-invasive cosmetic treatments which use natural energy from light to improve the skin. During photo rejuvenation procedures targeted areas are treated without damaging the surrounding areas. An example of what can be treated using this procedure is spider veins. These veins are targeted without damaging the skin layers surrounding those vessels. And this is what makes photo rejuvenation more precise.

How Photo Rejuvenation Works

Light energy, known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), is used to target specific chromophores within the skin. These are the skin sections that are naturally receptive to light. The light is applied onto the skin such that the targeted chromophores absorb energy from this light. After absorption the light energy turns into natural heat which then damages the absorbing cells.

The skin cells are damaged so as to force the body to begin the process of healing and repair. Your body will correct the damaged skin cells as well as generate new ones that will replace the ones that are too damaged to repair.

Photo rejuvenation consists of a series of about 3-5 treatment sessions which are done ones every three to six weeks.

What Is Photo Rejuvenation Used For?

  • It lightens the skin and reduces rosacea, redness, dilated and broken blood vessels on the face, neck and chest.
  • It improves skin texture by boosting collagen levels.
  • It controls flushing.
  • It removes age spots and brown blotches on any part of the body.

Length of the Procedure

The procedure takes about 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.

Mild discomfort may be felt during treatment and with time you become more comfortable.

Healing time and what you should look like right after the treatment

The healing time after a session of photo rejuvenation depends on what is being treated and the area treated. For instance, age spots and freckles will look darker for about 3 -7 days before crusting occurring which may last for up to 10 days. You should start seeing results after a couple of weeks but remember that you might need to go back for more sessions.

How long will the results last?

The results will depend on how good you take care of your skin. If you expose your skin to the sun without using sunscreen then the skin issues will return. It is better to take care of your skin and continue with the annual maintenance treatments. If the treatment is for maintaining your collagen levels then it is best to have the procedure done every 6-12 months.

The IPL treatment does not make one more sensitive to the sun, it can be done anytime of the year.

How to prepare before a photo rejuvenation treatment

  • Protect your skin using sunscreen every day or by wearing hats.
  • Avoid excessive sun and self-tanners for 2-4 weeks prior to the treatment.
  • If you are on certain medications you may be asked to discontinue temporarily.

It advisable to avoid this treatment when you are pregnant.
