Photorejuvenation is one of the top aesthetic treatments that we provide at Still Waters Day & Medical Spa in Pensacola, FL. If you are interested in using a completely non-invasive method to fix your sunspots and enlarged pores, you might be a good candidate for this versatile treatment. This innovative technique can also dramatically reduce the visibility of your rosacea, wrinkles, and broken blood vessels.
What Are the Benefits of Photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is an anti-aging treatment that will use the power of light energy to change the appearance of your skin. Since this anti-aging technique can address an extremely broad range of skin problems, this treatment will provide you with many aesthetic benefits.
Improve Your Rosacea
Receiving a series of these light treatments is a very good way to fix a frustrating skin problem called rosacea. This condition can cause you to develop swollen bumps on your face, red skin, irritated eyes, and other unpleasant symptoms. You will have a greater chance of experiencing these issues if you are female, older than 30, or smoke cigarettes. Feeling stressed or unhappy can also trigger your symptoms.
Similarly, exercising, taking certain medications, and eating very spicy foods may cause your skin problems to become more severe. If you haven’t been able to control your redness and other cosmetic issues on your own, you should think about getting a series of light treatments. After we transmit a broad spectrum of light energy into the areas that are affected by your rosacea, your skin will gradually become clearer and smoother.
Correct Your Fine Lines
Wrinkles are one of the most noticeable skin problems that you will experience as you become older. When fine lines become etched into the delicate skin around your eyes, on your forehead, and other areas, you may begin to look frustrated, unhappy, or tired. One of the main benefits of this light treatment is its ability to quickly fade the lines and wrinkles on your face.
Fade Your Sunspots
When you enter your fifties, you might develop dark spots on your face and other areas. Since you will have a greater chance of experiencing this pigmentation issue when you are older, these imperfections are sometimes called age spots. These brown patches are caused by prolonged sun exposure. When you spend time outside, the ultra-violet rays can cause your skin to create additional pigmentation.
Sometimes, this development will create visible spots to appear on your face. When you receive this non-invasive treatment, the light energy that we send into your skin will cause your tissues to reabsorb your sunspots. As these dark patches fade away, you will create healthy new cells that will give your skin an even, attractive appearance.
Minimize Your Enlarged Pores
Your pores are openings in your skin that release oil and sweat. Sometimes, excess skin cells, bacteria, oil, and other materials will cause some of the pores on your face to become plugged. If your pores are clogged for a long time, they might begin to look bigger and more prominent. If you produce a large amount of oil or suffer from regular acne breakouts, you will be more likely to experience this frustrating skin issue.
Similarly, developing sun damage and sagging skin can change the appearance of your pores. When we send light energy into your facial tissues, your pores will begin to look smaller and less noticeable.
Fix Your Broken Blood Vessels
As you age, you will be more likely to develop broken blood vessels on your face and other areas. These damaged vessels can cause your skin to look red and irritated. Experiencing sun damage is one of the main causes of this vascular issue. Over time, your exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays can weaken the capillaries in your face. As these blood vessels become increasingly vulnerable, they will be more likely to burst.
If you have rosacea, you will be more likely to develop capillaries that are visible through the surface of your skin. Similarly, a dramatic pressure shift could cause some of these vessels to rupture. For example, you could develop broken blood vessels after you sneeze. It’s also common to notice this skin issue after you spend time in extreme weather conditions. During your non-invasive treatment, we will use light energy to fade these weakened blood vessels.
What Is Intense Pulsed Light Energy?
When you begin researching aesthetic treatments that use light to correct skin problems, you might read about a concept called intense pulsed light, or IPL energy. During your photorejuvenation treatment, we will use a special type of handheld machine to send this gentle energy into your face, hands, or other desired area.
This type of light energy has a very wide range of beneficial wavelengths. Each of these wavelengths can treat different types of skin problems. For example, some of the wavelengths will improve your sunspots, while others will fix your broken blood vessels. As your skin changes this light energy into heat, you will make more collagen and your sun damage, visible blood vessels, and other problems will start to fade away.
What Features Can This Treatment Improve?
Since the skin on your face is likely to receive a significant amount of sun exposure during your life, you might develop sun damage and wrinkles in this location when you enter your thirties and forties. We can use this non-invasive treatment to fix these problems and other aesthetic issues that affect the skin in this area.
In addition to improving the skin on your face, we can use this method to address sun damage and other cosmetic conditions that have changed the appearance of your neck, arms, hands, and chest. For example, you might use this technique to fade age spots and wrinkles that appear on your hands.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for This Light Treatment?
Since we can use intense pulsed light to fix an extremely broad range of skin problems, you’ll probably be a good candidate for this comfortable treatment. In general, you should think about receiving this treatment if you have healthy skin that is beginning to develop wrinkles, sun damage, or other age-related issues.
If you develop blisters, a sunburn, or other infections during your treatment plan, you will be required to reschedule your next appointment. You will be able to continue receiving your treatments after your skin problem has resolved.
How Many Anti-Aging Sessions Will I Need To Receive?
If you are interested in achieving dramatic changes in your skin, you will probably receive five or six of these anti-aging treatments. Since this technique will produce cumulative results, your aesthetic problems will become less visible after each of your appointments is complete. Once you have received all of your initial sessions, you may decide to get one touch-up treatment every 12 months.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment Sessions?
Intense pulsed light can improve your deeper tissues without harming the surface layer of your skin. As a result, you’ll be able to relax while we use this non-invasive method to fix your sun damage, lines, and other imperfections. Before we start this process, we will have a consultation with you. We will talk about your beauty goals, go over your medical history, and look at the areas that you would like us to treat.
If you are eligible for this technique, we may begin your treatment after your consultation is complete. Each of your relaxing appointments will usually last for about 30 minutes. We will start by turning on our device and sending light energy into your tissues. As we address your pigmentation issues and other skin problems, you might notice a very mild feeling that will resemble the sensation of a rubber band gently pressing against your skin.
Will My Skin Take a Long Time To Recover?
If you have a full schedule and a challenging job, you probably don’t have time for a long recovery period. Fortunately, you won’t be required to miss work or stop completing your household tasks after you use this efficient method to fix your imperfections.
Since this treatment has minimal downtime, you’ll be able to immediately go back to your normal daily routine. As soon as we complete each of your sessions, you can drive back to your office, pick your children up from school, or run errands.
When Will My Sunspots and Other Skin Problems Begin To Improve?
Intense pulsed light works very quickly, and your skin will appear to be brighter and more radiant as soon as we finish your initial session. During the next two or three days, the sunspots, damaged blood vessels, and wrinkles in your target area will become less noticeable. As you receive more light treatments, these aesthetic challenges will continue to improve.
Can This Treatment Help Me Look Beautiful on My Wedding Day?
At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa, we can include this treatment in a one-of-a-kind beauty plan that will allow you to feel radiant and attractive on your wedding day. To ensure that you achieve your cosmetic goals before you get married, we will advise you to set up a meeting with our aesthetic consultant about one year before your wedding date.
Designing Your Beauty Plan
After we discuss your beauty goals, we can recommend facials and other techniques that you can use to transform your appearance during the next 12 months. For example, we may advise you to include light therapy treatments, injectables, and chemical peels in your customized beauty plan.
Since you will usually achieve more impressive results after you get five to six light treatments, we will probably advise you to begin receiving these rejuvenating sessions during the initial stage of your beauty plan. For example, you might receive your initial treatment about nine months before you get married.
Beginning Your Wedding Week
During the week before your wedding day, we might advise you to enhance the effect of your photorejuvenation sessions by getting a HydraFacial treatment. This gentle facial will give you radiant, clear skin that will look beautiful in all of your wedding photographs.
Enhance Your Skin
If you would like to receive a cosmetic treatment that uses completely non-invasive methods to address your sunspots and other skin issues, you will probably be a good candidate for photorejuvenation treatments. After each of your intense pulsed light sessions is complete, your skin will become clearer, smoother, and softer.
