|What is Photo Rejuvenation?
In our clinic we use a pulsed light system. This system uses specialized handpieces which filter light from different parts of the light spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for the treatment of pigmented lesions and vascular lesions. The light is absorbed by the pigmented lesions and the blood in the visible vesicular lesions and converted to heat. The heat dissolves the cells that create the pigment and shrinks the vessels.
What are the treatments like?
Your treatment clinician will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through the skin. A flashing light, and mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the hand piece is being pulsed.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
SUNSPOTS/SUN DAMAGE: The sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed from the skin within 1-2 weeks.
ROSACEA: Skin tone will be more normal, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment.
SPIDER VEINS: Vessels may disappear after treatment or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10-14 days.
Typically, several treatments will be necessary to achieve complete clearance of sunspots, rosacea and vessels.
What body areas can be treated?
Any area, except directly around the eyes. The face, neck, arms, back, and legs can all be treated. Please call for your complimentary consultation.
