What is Photorejuvenation?

Contrary to popular belief, photorejuvenation treatments are not a process to improve the appearance of old photographs. And that’s good news if you really don’t know what photorejuvenation is. That’s because, instead of improving the appearance of pictures, it is a popular treatment to improve the appearance of your skin.

How Photorejuvenation Helps Your Skin Look Better

In addition to being very effective, photorejuvenation treatments only last between 30 minutes and one hour and involve just minor discomfort with no side effects. They can be used to treat the following skin conditions and more.

  • Rosacea
  • Hyperpigmentation, brown spots and age spots
  • Wrinkled skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Broken capillaries and spider veins

How Does Photorejuvenation Work?

Photorejuvenation is an advanced dermatological technique that uses laser light therapy to not only treat conditions like those listed above but to also tone, soften and even out the overall appearance of your skin.

It works by applying a series of laser treatments to target areas. The gentle intense pulsed light (IPL) gets below your skin where it is absorbed by problems areas like abnormal pigmentation and dilated blood vessels.

The heat generated by the IPL treatments triggers your body’s natural healing processes. The result of a series of treatments is similar to skin resurfacing that leaves it looking fresh and healthy.

Post-treatment, you can expect the temporary sensation of a slight sunburn and there’ll be temporary minor redness in treated areas.

As the leading spa in Markham for photorejuvenation, we recommend a series of two to four treatments for best results. There will be noticeable results after just a couple of treatments.

Photorejuvenation is one of the best and fastest ways to restore the appearance of your skin with no downtime.
