What is photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is a light-based, noninvasive skin treatment that makes your skin shine. The procedure uses multiple broadband light wavelengths to penetrate many layers of your skin at once, allowing for a gorgeous finish.
During this treatment at Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center, you wear a protective eye cover as bright flashes of light target your skin, much like flashes from a camera.
While the light reaches the lower and middle layers of your skin, it doesn’t harm or hurt the top layer. This means that there are few, if any, side effects following the procedure.
The pigmented cells in your skin absorb the energy from the light and break into tiny particles that your body can easily disperse and absorb. You may need to attend multiple sessions to optimize your photorejuvenation effects.
What can photorejuvenation target?
Photorejuvenation works best in treating skin imperfections associated with tones that differ from your natural skin tone. You see a reduction or full elimination of blemishes that are red, brown, or otherwise discolored.
Specifically, you can get photorejuvenation treatments to target and reduce:
- Age spots
- Spider veins
Additionally, photorejuvenation treatments may improve your skin’s firmness and vibrancy. You and your Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center provider can discuss your expectations for treatment during a consultation and decide if photorejuvenation is the best fit.
How should I prepare for photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation requires several changes to your lifestyle to prepare. Your provider gives you specifics if you have questions, but generally, you must avoid these products and activities for about two weeks before your appointment:
- Tanning beds
- Chemical peels
- Aspirin and Ibuprofen
- Vitamin A and retinol creams
If you successfully avoid these, you heal smoothly after your treatment. Be sure to let your provider know if you have any skin conditions before you undergo the treatment as they may require you to take additional steps to prepare.
If pigmented blemishes and lesions are stopping you from appreciating your skin, call Rainier Laser & Aesthetics Center to book a consultation for photorejuvenation treatments today.
