Photofacials safely enhance skin appearance by reducing brown pigment, age spots or freckles, improving prominent blood vessels, and reducing redness from rosacea and flushing. The treatments also produce a rejuvenating effect to the skin by activating collagen synthesis.
Renew MediSpa employs Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to deliver precisely emitted flashes of light and heat to target colours in the skin. In the instance of dilated vessels from sun damage or rosacea, the delivered heat energy coagulates the vessel with the aim to relieve facial redness. The same principle applies to brown spots to which the heat energy is directed. Once treated, these pigmented lesions darken and are pushed to the skin’s surface to be shed away, revealing a more uniform skin tone. Photofacials fade age spots and relieve a blotchy complexion with little to no downtime. An initial series of 3 treatments will give good results for the face, neck, decollete, or hands.
