Laser photo rejuvenation, also known as laser skin rejuvenation, is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses an intense pulsed light (IPL) laser to target unwanted pigment in the skin. The laser emits wavelengths that pass harmlessly through the skin, damaging the targeted melanin pigment and minimising its appearance.
In this quick article, we explore 3 common skin conditions that can be improved with the help of this versatile skin rejuvenation treatment.
Sun Spots, Age Spots and Other Marks
Sun spots, age spots and other blemishes often appear on our skin as we age. Caused by exposure to the sun and the natural ageing process, among other conditions, these marks are highly visible due to the pigment contained within them. Fortunately, photo rejuvenation can target the melanin pigment and reduce the appearance of most spots and marks, making them fainter and sometimes even removing them completely.
Rosacea, Broken Blood Vessels and Redness
Photo rejuvenation is also a highly suitable treatment for skin redness. Whether you’re experiencing broken blood vessels caused by trauma to the skin, or excessive redness from Rosacea (a skin inflammation that results in facial redness and increased flushing), this treatment can penetrate deep within the skin to target capillaries, reducing redness as a result.
Sun Damaged Skin and Uneven Skin Tone
This type of damage often occurs when skin is overexposed to the sun. Symptoms can include cosmetic blemishes, dry skin, and even changes to the skin’s collagen, causing lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, photo rejuvenation has a double effect, minimising the appearance of blemishes by targeting pigment while helping to reduce lines and wrinkles thanks to the stimulation of collagen.
