forever young with photo rejuvination
Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology that revitalizes the skin without any downtime. The treatment offers visible improvement to a wide range of skin imperfections associated with sun damage and aging skin.
The precision and customizable settings of this unique IPL technology allow your specialist to curate a custom Photo Rejuvenation treatment to selectively target brown and red pigmentation in accordance to your skin type.
We provide all of our clients with a VISIA Skin Complexion analysis during their complimentary consultation. This advanced technology enables our medical professionals to provide an in-depth skin analysis in order to create the best treatment plan for your skin care needs.
We are proud to offer this service at both our downtown Toronto and North York locations and are happy to service customers from the Mississauga area.
Photo Rejuvenation treatment can be performed on the hands, face, neck, shoulders and/or arms to target:
Age spots or sun spots
Small blood vessels
Hyperpigmentation or Brown spots
Redness or flushing
Sun-induced freckles on the hand, chest and face
Vascular birthmarks (telangiectasias)
Photorejuvenation treats damaged skin through heating and breaking up of pigmented brown or red cells, thus causing a therapeutic effect. The old cells containing unwanted pigments will travel to the skin’s surface and slough, leaving behind renewed and clearer skin. During the treatment, you may feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation when the pulse of light is delivered to the skin.
The term photo aging refers to the process of premature aging of the skin that is caused by UVA and UVB sun damage. As ultraviolet light from the sun penetrates the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, it damages the DNA skin cells which causes melanocytes to produce excess pigment. Repeated sun exposure without proper protection will result in premature aging of the skin, as well as an increased risk of skin cancer.
Immediately following your treatment, your skin may appear slightly red. This is a normal response to treatment, and part of the rejuvenation and healing process. Depending on the severity of your condition, a series of three to six treatments may be needed to give you the visible and long-lasting results you desire.
The VISIA™ system’s multi-spectral imaging analysis provides a clear, multi-dimensional portrait of individual aspects of your complexion that contribute to enhancing your overall appearance.
