What is Photo Rejuvenation ?
The Photo Rejuvenation procedure, also known as a Photo Facial, is a series of intense light pulses (IPL) that are absorbed by abnormally enlarged vessels or pigmentation as they make way through the skin’s surface. The heat of the light pulses weakens the enlarged vessels or lesions which triggers normal healing progression. Lesions can form and will darken before being absorbed by the body or flaking off. This process causes no damage to the skin.
The Photo Rejuvenation Treatment
The area to be treated is prepared by cleansing and applying a cool gel. If desired, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. The pulses of light (IPL) are then distributed to the treatment area varying from 15 to 45 minutes. At the completion of the photo facial procedure, the gel is removed from the skin and purified. A cool compress may be applied to the area after the photo facial to sooth sensitive skin. Daily activities can be resumed immediately following a Photo Facial Procedure.
Frequency of the Treatment
The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Significant improvements may be seen after 2 to 3 treatments, however, 5 treatments are normally recommended for best possible results. Patients achieve a high level of satisfaction following photo facial procedure recommendations seeing from 70% to 90 % improvement toward more even toned, smoother skin.
Are there side effects from a Photo Rejuvenation Procedure ?
Although side effects are rare it is recommended that prior to a photo facial, exposure to the sun be reduced several weeks before and after treatment. Treatment can effect capillaries making them more visible, pigmentation may appear darker and the skin may look flushed. These side effects would be visible directly following treatment. Temporary swelling and/or blistering may occur but is very rare.
