Medico-aesthetic of the face
Non-aggressive skin rejuvenation procedure
Photorejuvenation is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses high-energy light to improve the quality of the skin. The non-ablative filtered light treats the epidermis without harming the surface of the skin tissue. The energy transmitted is absorbed by the epidermis and targets the specific areas we want to treat. Studies have shown that regular photorejuvenation treatments actually slowed the aging process in the areas that were treated.
Photorejenuvation can be used to treat the face, neck, hands, or body. This procedure has become one of the most common medical-aesthetic treatments in North America. The main focus of treatment is to:
- Reduce redness and rosacea;
- Improve pore size and overall appearance, tone and texture of the skin;
- Improve overall complexion by reducing the presence of solar lentigines (brown spots and freckles that appear on sun-exposed skin);
- Mitigation of fine lines and wrinkles.
The photorejuvenation procedure induces the production of collagen and stimulates the matrix of the skin. Photorejenuvation effectively targets various superficial skin concerns at once, including sun-damaged skin, rosacea, facial telangiectasias (fine hairs), hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, and improves overall color, texture and tone of the skin.
