Wrinkles and fine lines develop on our skin over time. As we age, our bodies change. Not all these changes are welcomed. We can’t avoid them, but there are ways to treat wrinkles and fine lines. These advanced treatments are far more effective than traditional methods.
At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery in Burlington, ON, we offer IPL photo rejuvenation. If you would like to know more about laser photo rejuvenation, give us a call to schedule a consultation.
What is Photo Rejuvenation?
Laser photo rejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment. It utilizes lasers and intense pulsed light therapy to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can reduce skin redness, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, liver spots, rosacea, melasma, sun damage, and blotchiness while rejuvenating your skin.
How Does Photo Rejuvenation Work?
IPL photo rejuvenation uses light energy to heat the skin in a target area. This heat rids unwanted skin cells. This handheld device sends out multiple wavelengths of pulsating light that can effectively reduce the signs of aging. It provides your skin with a more even tone without causing any damage to the surrounding skin.
The Benefits of the Photofacial
There is a reason that this treatment is so widely used. Photorejuvenation has many benefits to offer its users. Here are just a few to mention:
Stimulates Collagen Production
As the light energy produced by the IPL device is absorbed by your skin, it triggers the production of collagen. This is a result of your body’s response to damage.
While IPL triggers a healing response in your body, there is no damage caused by the procedure. The wavelengths of energy reach deep layers of your skin without penetrating or damaging the surface of your skin. There are no invasive incisions during this procedure. It has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use. Therefore, it is a low-risk treatment that offers great results.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As a result of this treatment, your body will start to produce more collagen. As the collagen levels in your body increase, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines will disappear, making your skin look smoother and feel healthier.
Wrinkles and fine lines are leading skin concerns. Additionally, photo facials reduce the appearance of sunspots and other hyperpigmentation. While our bodies produce a pigment called melanin that creates a brown color, the sun can kick it into overdrive. This results in groups of dark cells forming spots on your skin.
Corrects Facial Redness and Rosacea
If you engage in strenuous exercise, your face can turn red. This is temporary. Facial redness happens over time. However, if there is a constant redness on your face, it is a sign of aging and excessive sun exposure. When our skin cells absorb UV rays, blood vessels can become weak. The facial redness that is seen is a result of tiny broken capillaries. When facial redness becomes a chronic condition, it is referred to as rosacea.
Reduces Pore Size
Large pores can be a challenging skin concern to treat as we age and lose elasticity in our skin. Age and excessive sun exposure can lead to enlarged pores. IPL photo rejuvenation is one of the only cosmetic procedures that effectively shrink pores and give your skin a finer texture.
Improves Overall Skin Condition
While it increases collagen levels in your skin and allows new skin cells to develop, IPL photo facial treatment improves the health of your skin and gives it a fresh glow.
Results Increase Over Time
You can enjoy the results achieved with this skin-tightening treatment for a long time. What’s more, these results get better over time. We also offer touch-up treatments to further enhance the results.
Even though it is called photo facials, it can be used on many areas of your body that you may have concerns with. It is most effective for skin excessively exposed to the sun because it will show signs earlier. This does not mean that it can only be used on your face or areas that are exposed to the sun. It can also be used on your hands, chest, forearms, shoulders, and other areas that show signs of aging.
Photorejuvenation is Fast and Pain-Free
The sensation felt during a laser photo rejuvenation treatment is described as a light flick of a rubber band. A session is quick, so you can get back to your daily activities. The treatment is very simple and comfortable, and there is no downtime after the treatment.
Photofacial – The Results
The results you gain from IPL photo rejuvenation can be seen immediately, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun-damaged skin, and hyperpigmentation. The results will continue to increase in the next few weeks and months as your skin produces more collagen. Your final results can be seen a few weeks after your last treatment. You can also have follow-up treatments that will further enhance the results achieved. These results can last up to one year. This means that your skin will look and feel healthier for a long time after Photorejuvenation.
