Age spots make you look older, and sunspots can have the same effect. There are several different skin conditions that will make you look and feel older, but you should know that many of them can be eliminated with photorejuvenation therapy.
With the use of intense pulsed light, this treatment option can lighten and remove brown blotches from your skin. The therapy is also useful for lightening dilated blood vessels, rosacea and redness, and since it boasts an FDA approval, you can trust the safety of the technology. If you’re thinking about undergoing photorejuvenation therapy, then you should know about its benefits.
What are the Benefits?
When performed correctly, this treatment has several benefits to offer, which span the entire cosmetic spectrum. One of the major benefits of the therapy is its ability to repair small blood vessels, and if the tiny blood vessels in your face have become visible, the treatment can repair the vessels and eliminate pigmentation irregularities.
Photorejuvenation therapy is also very useful for combating acne issues, and it can reduce the size of large pores. Many patients undergo this procedure to reduce the appearance of rosacea or redness, and it can work well for these purposes.
The therapy is designed to treat a deep layer of skin, which makes it ideal for stimulating collagen growth. The treatment can improve your skin texture and tighten saggy skin.
Are You a Candidate?
The best candidates have blotchy, discolored or sun-damaged skin, and they might also have wrinkles, freckles or large pores. The best type of skin for photorejuvenation therapy has a decent amount of elasticity.
If you have a busy schedule and want a fast, effective way to improve the appearance of your skin, then you could be a great candidate for this treatment. Virtually no downtime is involved, so patients are free to resume most of their normal activities immediately after the treatment session.
How Photorejuvenation Therapy Works
During this treatment, bright pulses of light will be delivered with a special device, and most patients say the pulses of light feel like gentle snaps from a rubber band. Only minimal discomfort is involved.
For optimal results, most patients will need to undergo a series of treatments. Once the results start to appear, you’ll notice rapid improvements in the appearance of your skin.
