One treatment is all that is needed to address several skin conditions at once and is called Photo Rejuvenation. Many skin conditions can be treated including sun damage, pigmentation, red veins, acne scars, rosacea, fine lines and enlarged pores.
Photo Rejuvenation utilises the benefits of IPL therapy to deliver precision pulses of broad spectrum light to the affected areas. This light penetrates the epidermal layers of the skin and specifically targets the treatment zone.
The effectiveness of the IPL far exceeds that of the laser treatments of the past with considerably less down time. IPL Photorejuvenation is often considered the safest and most effective treatment for skin concerns such as pigmentation, redness, capillaries and acne scarring.
Best results are obtained due to the treatment parameters which can be adapted to suits the individuals needs. The light passes through the epidermis which is the uppermost layer of skin, using a specific wavelength of light to target the haemoglobin, pigmentation and collagen which lie in the dermis.
Downtime is greatly minimised by not harming the uppermost layers of skin, when compared to older laser treatments. New collagen cells are stimulated by IPL which speeds up the skins recovery and aids in improving fine lines and skin texture.
The correct strength and intensity of light is applied to the face neck, chest or hands by a computer which regulates the wavelength of light.
Treatment times may vary depending on the area being treated; however as a guide most treatments take between 20 to 45 minutes. For best results, Photo Rejuvenation therapy typically consists of a progressive series of a minimum of four treatments at monthly intervals.
The price will be different from person to person and will depend on the size of the area being treated.
Photo Rejuvenation therapy will result in some temporary redness and inflammation of the skin. After undergoing Photo Rejuvenation therapy keep the treated area cool and clean, wear a hat, apply SPF 30+ broad spectrum sun block and minimise your exposure to the sun. Avoid the use of abrasive cleaning measures such as loofah’s, scrubs and exfoliating products.
