Photo rejuvenation treatment is an advanced kind of IPL laser treatment, and it is often offered to people wanting to treat the effects of sun damage and eliminate the signs of ageing on the skin of the face.
What is photo rejuvenation treatment for?
The most common applications for photo rejuvenation are:
• Treating sun damage to the skin
• Smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles
• Treating pigmentation (i.e. freckles, age spots etc.)
• Thread vein treatment
• Rosacea treatment
Basically, photo rejuvenation is specially designed to treat the superficial signs of ageing and skin damage, making the skin look younger, smoother, fresher and firmer.
So, how does this treatment work?
Photo rejuvenation treatment involves using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to target the pigment (also known as melanin) in the skin. Light is converted into heat so that the pigment breaks up or the vein collapses, without damaging the rest of the skin around the affected area.
The laser also stimulates a healing response in the skin and boosts collagen production, so that a new, firm, fresh foundation for the skin can be formed. Skin tone is improved, lines and wrinkles are flattened and the overall effect can knock years off the appearance of the person undergoing treatment.
