It sounds pretty high-tech, huh? Well don’t be scared by the long name! Photorejuvenation refers to a technique which uses laser technology to treat skin conditions such as skin discoloration, sun-induced freckles, rosacea, acne scarring, enlarged pores, broken capillaries, age spots, and more. The treatment leaves your skin with a more youthful, revitalized, and smooth appearance. The treatment is usually applied to the face, but can also treat the hands, neck, and chest.
So how does this treatment work?
Well it’s not magic! It is performed through laser technology. During the process, an intense light is emitted in gentle pulses over areas of the skin. Don’t be scared! If you are worried about the pain, many patients describe the feeling as a rubber band being flicked on the skin. The treatment can feel like a sunburn for a few hours after, but that is about it.
Who is this good for?
Well, we’d like to say everyone! And it is for everyone that wants to have more youthful, and smooth looking skin. The process is best for those suffering from sun-damaged skin (we’re talking to you beach bums!), enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, or red, flushed faces.
