Another service the Australian Laser and Skin offers that is perfect to do when the sun isn’t shining is Skin Rejuvenation!
Photo Rejuvenation or Skin Rejuvenation is a fantastic treatment that can help with a number of concerns such as:
Freckles – Some people are born with freckles while others develop them as they age and have been exposed to the sun.
Pigmentation – A common and harmless skin condition, where some areas of skin turn darker in colour and is caused when there is too much pigment on the surface of the skin.
Rosacea – A chronic, inflammatory skin condition which mainly affects the face. It causes facial redness and produces small, red, pus-filled bumps.
Broken Capillaries – Commonly found on the cheeks or nose area, broken capillaries appear as small red or pink threads under the skins surface
Sun Damaged Skin – Freckles, Pigmentation, Fine and coarse wrinkles
Skin Rejuvenation is a non invasive treatment performed with our Medical Grade Intense Pulsed Light Laser or IPL. The machine uses light to absorb melanin (the dark pigment in your hair and skin) and hemoglobin (the red colour in your blood vessels). This light converts to heat, which damages the target cells without disrupting the skins surface. As the machine is attracted to the dark pigment it is best to not have any tan (either from the sun or fake) when performing Skin Rejuvenation on your skin.
What happens after Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
When treating pigmented areas such as freckles and sun spots the area will go darker and fall off within 7 to 28 days (depending on the area of the body) or it will just gradually fade.
Concerns such as Broken Capillaries and Rosacea will lighten and eventually fade and in some capillary cases they will collapse.
The Australian Laser and Skin Clinic offer a complimentary Skin Rejuvenation consultation and test patch to allow an accurate evaluation of the skins response and to see if you are suitable for Photo Rejuvenation.
