No matter how dedicated you might be to your skincare regimen, it is not always easy to obtain that clear complexion you desire. Over time, with the loss of collagen during the aging process, this goal can seem even more unattainable. Sun, gravity, and hormones are all working against you when it comes to maintaining a fresh, vibrant appearance. However, photofacial skin rejuvenation is an effective treatment that has given many people a renewed youthful glow. Using this advancement in technology can leave you healthier, smoother, more attractive-looking skin.
What is Photo Skin Rejuvenation?
Photo skin rejuvenation is a non-surgical treatment that transmits light waves to resolve common skin troubles. It has become very popular among those looking for a solution to clearer skin without undergoing a major procedure. It has very little risks associated and minimal recovery time. It usually takes three to five treatments to achieve the best results.
How Does It Work?
IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation uses intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to treat a variety of skin problems. It can help improve the look and feel of your skin by:
- Lightening and removing age spots and sunspots
- Reducing redness from rosacea or broken capillary vessels
- Getting rid of large, visible pores
- Eliminating spider veins and stretch marks
- Diminishing the appearance of freckles
- Erasing wrinkles
- Controlling excessive flushing
- Diffusing the presence of melisma
- Improving skin texture
The device used to display the intense light is pressed directly into the skin’s problem areas, emitting heat waves that will work to stimulate collagen production underneath the skin. These light beams also target hemoglobin and melanin as it passes through the skin, damaging the walls of blood vessels and melanin pigments so they will become absorbed by the body and no longer remain visible as discolored spots on the skin’s surface.
