Photo Rejuvenation includes a variety of non-invasive cosmetic treatments that 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.
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 get damaged as a result which forces the body to begin the process of healing and repair. Your body will correct the damaged skin cells and generate new ones that will replace the old ones that are too damaged to repair. Photorejuvenation consists of a series of about 3-5 treatment sessions which are done once every three to six weeks.
The procedure takes about 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
Mild discomfort may be felt during the treatment and with the time you become more comfortable.
The healing time after a session of photo Rejuvenation depends on what is being treated and the area being treated. For instance, age spots and freckles will look darker for about 3 -7 days before crusting occurs 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.
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 you more sensitive to the sun, it can be done at any time of the year.
