Skin Rejuvenation Treatments And Procedures

Oct 20, 2007
The perfect complexion is only a snap away with a photorejuvenation treatment. Photorejuvenation treatments are non-ablative, there is none of the downtime associated with chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing, which are performed in the treatment of deep wrinkles, pre-cancerous lesions, deep acne scars, and other skin damage.

Skin Rejuvenation treats vascular lesions, pigmented skin lesions (hyperpigmentation, such as age spots, sun spots or brown spots), symptoms of rosacea, and other skin texture irregularities without damaging skin tissue. This treatment merges electrical and optical energy in controlled pulses to safely and effectively treat unwanted skin imperfections.

Preparation
Avoid excessive sun exposure four weeks prior to treatment.

Procedure
The aesthetician directs the laser at the treatment area and snaps pulses of light, which send the optical and electrical energy into the skin imperfection. During the procedure, patients may experience a slight tingling feeling or pinch (like the snap of a rubber band).

What to Expect
Visible results can be achieved in a single session, though the total number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Skin is smoother and clearer after treatment.

Risks
Side effects associated with photorejuvenation are few and temporary. These include blistering and purura.

Faq's
How does this treatment rejuvenate my skin?
Skin rejuvenation uses gentle light and electric energies to restore skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented imperfections) from sun damage and aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections), and rough skin texture will improve over a treatment series.

Is treatment safe?
Treatment is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in technology that make it unparalleled for skin safety, without compromising effectiveness for treatment. There are no long-term health hazards from light or electric energies. Both have been used for decades in medicine, surgery, and aesthetics without adverse effects.

What kind of results can I expect from a fotofacial treatment?
Each treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Textural improvements are achieved toward the end of the treatment series.

How frequently do I need fotofacial treatments?
Treatments are repeated every month for a total of 5 treatments.

Does the fotofacial treatment hurt?
The sensation is often described as a "hot pinch" or "snapping" feeling. The sensation only lasts for fraction of a second, and you may feel warmth or a tingling sensation for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without topical anesthetic, but individuals who are more sensitive may prefer to have the skin numbed before treatment.

What happens after each fotofacial treatment?
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The improvement in pigmented and vascular irregularities can often be appreciated by the time you return for your next treatment a month later. Brown spots temporarily go darker before they lighten.

Who should get a fotofacial treatment for Skin Rejuvenation?
Anyone who wants to improve the signs of sun damage and aging in the skin, such as pigmented and vascular irregularities and uneven or rough skin texture. Skin rejuvenation can be done on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
