Photorejuvenation for Rosacea and Photodamaged Skin
Photodamaged skin often appears dull and wrinkled with an over abundance of brown spots and redness. Photodamaged skin can be corrected with a procedure called photorejuvenation. Rosacea often presents as generalized redness, flushing, acne-like breakouts or small blood vessels appearing in facial skin. These symptoms can also be improved with the procedure called photorejuvenation. Photorejuvenation uses intense pulsed light and radio-frequency through a series of treatments to reduce redness, small blood vessels and brown spots in the skin. This treatment also delivers heat into the skin to promote new collagen formation which leaves the skin tighter and more radiant. When treating skin with an over abundance of redness or small blood vessels, another laser called Vbeam Perfecta may be used in addition to traditional photorejuvenation to maximize the reduction of the redness and blood vessels in the skin. When treating oily skin, skin with sebaceous gland hyperplasia or skin with pre-cancerous cells, a photosensitizing solution called Levulan may be applied to the skin prior to the photorejuvenation procedure to improve these conditions. When considering to undergo a procedure like photorejuvenation, it is best to have the treatments performed when the skin is not tanned and during a time of limited sun exposure. For most people, winter is the optimal time of year. Consider a series of photorejuvenation this winter to have your skin glowing and more radiant by spring.
