Photorejuvenation is a process where light energy is emitted into the tissues targeting the imperfections. Most people describe the treatments as a gentle snapping sensation with minimal discomfort. Lesions such as age spots will darken immediately and then fade and disappear within 10-14 days. Visible veins will show an immediate response and will also fade over 10-14 days. It is possible to experience some swelling and redness, similar to that of a sunburn, and usually resolves in 24-72 hours. Side effects do not interfere with normal activities and can be covered with makeup the following day.
The number of IPL Photorejuvenation treatments depends upon the individual. Most issues of pigmentation will show a dramatic improvement after one session. Spider veins and vessels often need repeated treatment because these issues lay deeper under the skin. The benefits of collagen production for fine lines is also more evident after a series of photofacial treatments.
It is important to avoid direct sun exposure, self tanning creams and the use of tanning beds 4 weeks prior to Photorejuvenation treatment. This minimizes the risk for complications. It is also recommended that all clients use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 in their daily regime. Book a complimentary consultation with one of our Registered Nurses.
