Sun damage accumulates underneath the skin and eventually surfaces in the form of sun spots or brown spots and fine telangiectasia (spider veins). Photorejuvenation is a great option for clearing away red or brown dyschromia in the skin.
Photo rejuvenation is often referred to as intense pulse light. At Ascend Medical Spa we use the Elite MPX from Cynosure which targets sun damage contrasting the skin. This laser targets the pigment, sun spots or age spots, which is then converted into heat. This energy absorbed by the sun spots or facial capillaries causes the body to absorb the targeted pigment or coagulated remains.
Photo Rejuvenation or a Photofacial can help to treat:
– Facial Telangiectasia (spider veins)*
– Age spots/sun spots*
– Diffused redness and small facial capillaries*
– Uneven skins and dull complexions*
– Fine lines and mild scarring*
– Overall skin appearance*
Following your photofacial or photo rejuvenation treatment, brown spots/discolourations will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly pink. This typically lasts a few hours to possibly a few days. After your photofacial treatment, the darkened spots will flake off and/or fade and facial capillaries or diffused redness will decrease. Photo rejuvenation is suitable for skin types I through IV.
Before beginning photo rejuvenation treatments at Ascend Medical Spa, we encourage all clients to visit us for a complimentary photo rejuvenation skin consultation. At this time we will analyze your skin and provide recommendations for which treatments are best for you based on your skinís needs and your personal goals for your skin.
When you come in for your first photo rejuvenation treatment, we will begin by cleansing the skin. The face is mapped out or divided in small sections to ensure even coverage. Goggles are placed over the clientís eyes for safety. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin. The photo rejuvenation hand piece is applied to the skin one pulse at a time. You will feel a sharp pinch with every photo rejuvenation pulse.
Depending on your skin condition, the Photo Rejuvenation treatment may be combined with a Laser Facial for skin tightening, Chemical Peels and HydraFacials for improving texture, tone and sun damaged skin.
