Photorejuvenation is a great way to refresh your face without harming your health. After carrying out this procedure, you can safely go anywhere and even use decorative cosmetics – no one will notice that you have been in a beauty parlor.
The basis of a unique method
The process is simple and understandable to everyone, there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. A special cosmetic device creates a beam of light of a specific frequency. It penetrates almost unhindered through the skin and is absorbed by melanin (a pigment that forms, for example, freckles or age spots). Damaged pigmentation after the procedure is absorbed and becomes almost invisible.
Depending on what effect you want to achieve, the cosmetologist determines the length of the wave study. Before proceeding with the actual procedure, a protective gel is applied to the skin to protect it from overheating. The patient then puts on special goggles to avoid corneal burns.
Next, LED filters reduce the beam of light to a special tip that directs it to a specific area of the face. At the same time, the patient feels only warmth and a slight tingling sensation. A session can last from 15 to 40 minutes, but the average is approximately 20 minutes. After the procedure is completed, a cream with a therapeutic and protective effect is applied to the skin.
The effect can be seen already after the first procedure, in order to consolidate and enhance it, cosmetologists recommend taking a full course of facial rejuvenation. The required number of sessions is determined individually, depending on the desired result, from 4 to 6 procedures. An indisputable plus of this cosmetology service is the absence of pain, scars, injections, because the skin is not injured. A slight reddening of the skin in no way interferes with the usual activities or the use of decorative cosmetics.
Strict adherence to the recommendations of a cosmetologist, advance familiarization with all the indications and contraindications for this procedure guarantees you the maximum effect and safety.
