ABOUT THE TREATMENT
Every time you look in the mirror does your skin look older and a little more tired? Is the effect of the sun taking its toll? Most of us, at one point or another, have thought of possibly putting a stop to, or at least slowing down the ageing process and its effect upon our skin. Well now you can, with Photo-Rejuvenation.
On a daily basis, not only do we have to contend with the natural process of ageing, but harsh environmental factors also impact upon our skin. Until recently most skin rejuvenation treatments involved a lengthy recovery period and surgery. The Photo-Rejuvenation treatment is a new sophisticated, yet simple aesthetic procedure.
Developed by Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr, this revolutionary treatment involves a series of beams of light being pulsed onto the facial area. Photo-Rejuvenation treatments clearly improve the signs of photo-aging and rosacea reducing fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, telangiectasias and irregular pigmentation resulting in younger and more beautiful skin. The benefits of Photo-Rejuvenation treatments are consistent, with visible improvement in the skin with minimal discomfort and minimal recovery time. Photo-Rejuvenation is simply sophisticated beauty that is rediscovered in you.
When following the Photo-Rejuvenation guidelines patients experience consistent visible improvement to the skin, which to date, has proved to be long lasting. Photo-Rejuvenation treatments have a great appeal because of the dramatic visual improvement to the skin, the simple nature of the treatment and most importantly the complete absence of recovery time. Patients are able to return immediately to normal activity.
WHICH SYMPTOMS WHICH CAN BE TREATED EFFECTIVELY USING PHOTO-REJUVENATION?
Erythema: especially face, neck or chest: Patients can expect an average of 50-75% reduction in facial erythema after five treatments. Benefits have also continued for up to twelve months following treatments.
Flushing: Until recently there has been no effective treatment for facial, neck or chest flushing. Photo-Rejuvenation treatments are extremely effective in reducing the degree of flushing in all patients treated. Most patients report a 75% (or greater) reduction in flushing.
Rosacea: Patients with active inflammatory rosacea generally experience a considerable improvement in their symptoms after a number of Photo-Rejuvenation treatments. Most patients are able to decrease or discontinue treatments for rosacea. Although symptoms of rosacea may re-occur following treatment, most patients report 60% (or greater) improvement in their rosacea.
Photo-aging and sun damage: Skin that displays fine wrinkling, freckling or irregular pigmentation from chronic sun exposure is visibly improved after a series of Photo-Rejuvenation treatments. Fine wrinkles shown an average improvement of 15-25% (or greater) after five treatments.
Pigmentation Problems: Such as brown age spots or melasma, coarse or rough appearing skin with large pores. Patients with this skin type generally experience smoother, softer skin with a visible reduction in pores after Photo-Rejuvenation treatments. Pore size improves an average of 50% (or greater).
Non Facial Sun damage: Chest, dorsal, hand, forearm and the leg can all be safely rejuvenated using the Photo-Rejuvenation procedure.
Acne Scarring: Photo-Rejuvenation treatments are effective in reducing the erythema and post-inflammatory hyper- pigmentation of acne scarring.
Photo-Rejuvenation treatments offer several advantages over other skin rejuvenation modalities such as chemical peeling.
- Photo-Rejuvenation treatments are the only truly effective treatment for facial, neck and chest erythema, telangiectasias and flushing.
- One of the main advantages with Photo-Rejuvenation treatments is that there are substantial visible improvements seen in the skin with no downtime.
- Photo-Rejuvenation treatments are safe with a minimal risk of scarring or adverse effects.
- Treatments are quick and easy for patients and generally speaking no anesthesia is required. The whole face can be treated for most patients within 15-20 minutes.
- Millions of Australians with skin changes of rosacea and/or photo-aging can benefit immensely from Photo-Rejuvenation treatments.
- The energy delivered in Photo-Rejuvenation treatments is in the form of pulses of light. The wavelength of the laser is within the visible spectrum of light, so there is minimal risk of ocular injury and a higher level of patient safety.
Photo-Rejuvenation treatments can be safely used on non-facial skin. This permits effective treatment of neck and chest erythema and photo-aging of the neck, chest, forearms, shoulders and legs.
