Skin imperfections can have a big impact on a person’s confidence and self-image. With age, the skin becomes loose, creating folds and creases that only get worse over time.
Photo Rejuvenation (or photo facial) is a non-invasive procedure to improve the color and texture of your skin. It is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes the properties of light to effectively treat skin conditions such as:
- Port Wine stains
- Hyper pigmentation
- Broken capillaries
- Age spots
- Lost elasticity in the skin
- Sun damage
- Acne and acne scarring
These skin conditions can be minimized or eliminated with little or no “downtime” and with very minimal discomfort. This procedure promises to give you a better complexion after only one photo rejuvenation treatment. The look of your skin will appear smoother and fresher. In certain cases, additional Photo Rejuvenation/Photo Facial treatment may be necessary, depending on skin condition being treated.
How does Photo Rejuvenation Treatment work?
When you come to our Med Spa, we will analyse your skin and decide on a Photo Rejuvenation/Photo Facial treatment plan. A typical treatment plan would consist of a series of three to five Photo Rejuvenation/Photo Facial treatments at three to four weekly intervals. However, patients can see a visible improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin from the very first treatment. There is minimal discomfort during the treatment and it usually takes about 20 minutes. Skin will look smoother even after the very first session.
How is the Photo Rejuvenation (Photo Facial) treatment performed?
Photo Facial is performed using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). This non-laser medical device delivers a series of pulses of light to the skin all over the area involved. Specific settings are selected for each treatment and a series of up to five treatments are performed at 3 to 4 week intervals.
What are treatments like? Each treatment takes about 20 minutes to 1 hour for a proper cleansing and post treatment mask. A mild amount of discomfort can be expected during treatment but this quickly subsides. Immediately following a treatment, the skin may appear red and flushed and tiny capillaries and brown spots may appear darker. All of these changes gradually fade over a period of hours to a few days. There is very little recovery time required for the treatment.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to see a gradual decrease in overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries. People with visible ageing from the sun can expect to see their skin become smoother with a decrease in fine wrinkles, reduction in pore size and fading of sun spots
How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment your skin will feel smoother and it will have a more even tone. These improvements are gradual and will be more visible after each treatment. Between three to five treatments are performed for optimal results.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some very minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
