Medico-aesthetic of the face
Non-aggressive skin rejuvenation procedure
Photorejenuvation is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses high-energy light to improve the quality of epidermis. This filtered light does not create ablation of the epidermis, but the energy transmitted will be absorbed by the epidermis and will targets what we want to treat. Studies show that regular photorejuging treatments slow aging in treated areas.
Photorejenuvation treats the face, neck, hands, or body. The procedure has become one of the most common medical-aesthetic treatments in North America. The main focus of treatment is:
- Decrease in redness and rosacea
- Improving pores and skin texture.
- Uniformity of complexion by reducing sun time solar lentigo (brownish spots appearing with age and sun exposure)
- Mitigation of fine lines
The photorejusation procedure induces collagen and the skin matrix stimulation of the skin. This skin photorejenuvation will alleviate unsightly skin damage including solar aging, rosacea, telangiectasies (tiny hairs), hyperpigmentation, color inequality, fine lines, and textural inequality of the skin.
