Photo Rejuvenation, also known as a photofacial, is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of broadband light to effectively treat skin discoloration and photoaging at the cellular level.
The light is absorbed by red blood cells and melanin, which are responsible for giving skin its color. This causes the cells to break down and be removed by the body. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
The treatment is typically performed in a series of 3-6 sessions, with each session lasting about 30 minutes. There is typically little to no downtime after the treatment, and most patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
