PhotoRejuvenation is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure using Intense Pulse Light (IPL) offered at Chameleon Medical Spa. PhotoRejuvenation is the latest method of facial rejuvenation! PhotoRejuvenation reduces the visible signs of rosacea, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and more, revealing a clear and even tone skin!
What is PhotoRejuvenation or PhotoFacial?
PhotoRejuvenation works by IPL penetrating the dermal layer of the skin to repair damage. The light source stimulates new collagen to tighten and lift the skin correcting uneven skin texture and tone.
PhotoFacial can improve your skin tone and skin elasticity with the reduction of pore size. Photo rejuvenation can also treat acne, and it is often sought after as an alternative treatment option because of its ability to clear up skin by 80% with just a few treatments!
PhotoFacial treatments usually last around 20-40 minutes. Typically a series of treatments is required to reach optimal results. Most patients require a series of 1-3 treatments at 4-6 week intervals, some patients may require up to 5 treatments based on their skin condition. We will determine how many treatments will be needed to provide you with the best results during your initial consultation.
Am I Candidate for PhotoRejuvenation?
Radiant skin is soft, smooth, and even in texture; however, it’s common to have skin that feels rough and uneven. This can be due to skin conditions such as rosacea or broken blood vessels, acne, but it can also be caused by aging, sun damage, or other environmental factors that have damaged the skin.
PhotoRejuvenation Treats a Variety of Skin Conditions and Imperfections as Follows:Rosacea & Flushing
Rosacea is a common facial skin condition that causes primarily causes flushing and skin redness. Dependent upon the extent of rosacea, small, red, pus-filled bumps (acne) may appear on the face. Some patients also exhibit spider veins and a swollen nose due to thickening of the skin, skin sensitivity and itching. Rosacea is seen commonly in women of fair complexions.
Fine lines occur due to the irregular thickening of the dermis and a decrease in the amount of water held by the epidermis. This is mainly caused by sun damage and overexposure to environmental toxins, most specifically tobacco smoke.
Wrinkles and folds often form because of the following factors, though the severity depends on the individual’s genetic tendency and exposure to environmental factors:
- Sun damage
- Muscle movement
- Other skin diseases with a tendency to scar
Hyperpigmentation is a common and mostly harmless condition where patches of skin become darker in color than the other, normal surrounding skin area. This condition occurs when an excess of melanin, which is the brown pigment that produces our normal skin color, forms deposits inside the skin.
Similar to hyperpigmentation in both appearance and occurrence, sun spots (solar lentigines) are darker or lighter areas and usually occur in different shapes and colors. As the name indicates, they normally occur on areas of the skin that are regularly exposed to sun, most often on your nose, cheeks, upper lip, ears, forehead, neck, arms, back of your hands. They sometimes look like raised warts, scaly or rough skin lesion and can cause slight itching.
This condition occurs when one or more blood vessel bursts resulting in a small amount of blood escaping from the vessel and into the affected area of the body. The resulting blood sometimes shows up just beneath the surface of the skin and is visible to the eye, creating an unpleasant look. Blood vessels burst for many different reasons, but it is mostly caused by impact or injuries.
Spider veins are similar to broken blood vessels only they are smaller and consist of red, purple, and blue vessels that twist and turn in the affected area. They are also easily visible through the skin and typically occur on the legs and face.
There are a number of different factors that can cause spider veins. Some of these include:
- Occupations that involve a lot of standing
- Hormonal influences of pregnancy, puberty, and menopause
- Birth control pills
- Postmenopausal hormonal replacement
- History of blood clots
Capillaries typically appear around the chin, nose and cheeks. Like all facial conditions mentioned above, broken capillaries are caused from a variety of reasons, some which can be prevented from occurring. The most common cause of broken capillaries is due to damage to the skin from overexposure to the sun and excess dilation from a source of inflammation or irritation. In addition, vigorous scrubbing of the skin can further aggravate sensitive areas, which will result in worsening the development of broken capillaries.
