What is Facial Photorejuvenation?
One step closer to a youthful look
Photorejuvenation, also known as a “photofacial”, is a non-invasive treatment that is used to correct a variety of skin imperfections, sun damage and various effects of aging. The advanced Broad Band Light (BBL) technology at the Medical Cosmetic Clinic utilizes a broad spectrum of laser light to safely treat unpleasant age spots, sun spots, freckles, facials veins, redness and rosacea, and provides skin tightening with a reduction of the size of pores. The BBL photofacial is the most effective form of photorejuvenation currently available on the market. Results are seen on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
How it works
Client specific solutions combined in one micro injecting device.
Photorejuvenation is an approximate 15-30-minute procedure that utilizes intense pulses of light which penetrate deeply into the skin. The pulses of light cause a constriction of collagen and blood vessels under the skin. This construction reduces redness and the look of age lines in the skin. The BBL technology targets damaged cells, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Pigmented skin areas, such as sun spots, are pushed to the surface of the skin and peel off naturally. The end result of photorejuvenation is a younger looking even and bright skin tone.
