Too much time in the sun can ruin your skin. Hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots, are all signs of sun damage. But it is possible to undo sun damaged skin by undergoing photorejuvenation, and adopting a healthy skin care regimen that includesthe use of sun block.
What is photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that can reduce the effects of sun damage, and deliver visible improvements fast. It involves the use of light based technology, which targets age spots, freckles, brown spots, and other signs of hyperpigmentation.
How does it work?
The spots absorb the light energy from the laser, which breaks up the dark pigments, but does not harm the surrounding skin.After laser treatment the spots will be darker, but the skin will peel away within a few days to reveal lighter skin. Patients can resume regular activities immediately after treatment.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes on average, but the time may vary depending on the area being treated. During treatment patients experience only minor discomfort, and downtime is minimal. It typically takes several treatments to achieve the best results.
Who can benefit?
People of all skin types can benefit from photorejuvenation, and the procedure can undo sun damaged skin on all parts of the body. It is often used to remove blemishes from the face and neck, chest and arms, as well as the legs.
What results can I expect?
After photorejuvenation, dark spots will be noticeably lighter, and the skin will be clearer and more youthful.
