Even Skin Tone – Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation

A fairly new anti-aging treatment called photofacial skin rejuvenation has proven to deliver on its promises for younger looking skin. With the use of pulsating light, brown spots, Rosacea, age spot and sun damaged skin can be treated for a faster alternative to months and months of cream and lotion. This is a non-surgical skin treatment with minimal recovery time, if any.

Photofacial skin rejuvenation works by mimicking the healing power of the sun without all the harmful UVA and UVB rays that aided in the damage to begin with. Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is what is behind the photofacial, hence the “photo” in the name. Some dermatologist offices administer this treatment by passing the IPL through a filter, so only a specific color of light hits the skin for different types of skin rejuvenation treatments.

In today’s fast-paced world, down time is usually not an option for most people. With photofacial skin rejuvenation the recovery time is usually minimal to none depending on your sensitivity to the procedure. During the treatment the skin may feel a sting when the light hits it, but easily tolerated by most. The treatment takes approximately thirty minutes (depending on the amount of area covered). Once the procedure is finished the skin will appear slightly red to pink, but will usually fade within half an hour or so.

Photofacial skin rejuvenation will help to improve the appearance on the skin on the face, neck, and even the hands. The treatments will lighten and/or remove brown spots and discolored skin due to age or sun damage. It will also alleviate the embarrassing appearance of red patches on the face caused by Rosacea. Another benefit of photofacial skin rejuvenation is acne treatment when the creams and washes have failed to work.

Whether the issue is acne, sun damaged or discolored patchy skin tones due to age; there is hope in the non-invasive Austin photofacial skin rejuvenation treatment.
