Photo Rejuvenation also known as Photo Facial or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments is a treatment for brown spots, broken capillaries and overall redness or Rosacea in the skin.
Most people aren’t aware that IPL can also help to stimulate the production of new collagen in the treated areas.
This occurs because while the treatment is targeting the upper damaged layers of the skin it is also delivering heat (thermal energy) to the deeper layers. The skin reacts as if it would to a superficial wound by stimulating fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the cells in the body that make collagen.
Lasting Looks Clinic Anti-Aging and Laser Clinic in Toronto has been providing patients with Photo Facial treatments since it was first introduced to the market.
We have seen dramatic results in patients that undergo these treatments not only with the repair of sun damage but also with the thickening of collagen fibers and density of the skin.
What a wonderful bonus for patients undergoing treatment for an unsightly condition such as sun damage or Rosacea – and ending up with denser more luminous skin!!
