Skin Rejuvenation Q & A
What is the process of skin rejuvenation?
Your skin can lose its youthful glow and smoothness due to time, sun, exposure to pollution, and skin disorders. Some of this decline is due to natural aging and collagen depletion. Decreased tautness, acne, sunspots, and wrinkles result, and you may feel you’ve lost your youthful edge.
Skin rejuvenation is achieved with intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. The energy triggers your body to produce more collagen and elastin, natural skin compounds that provide your skin with strength and suppleness. Gentle, scattered wavelengths glide across your skin, heat up your epidermis and tighten the skin.
How can skin rejuvenation help my complexion?
Skin rejuvenation techniques address a number of common skin complaints, including:
- Sagging, lax skin
- Melasma and hyperpigmentation
- Aging skin
- Dull complexions
- Sun damage
- Large pores
With IPL therapy, old, dull cells are swept away to reveal glowing skin that has more even pigmentation and enhanced smoothness. You will feel heat and tingling during skin rejuvenation treatments, but most people find them quite tolerable.
What downtime do I need following skin rejuvenation treatments?
You need minimal downtime following skin rejuvenation treatments. Expect some redness and mild swelling for 2-3 days following a session. You’ll feel like you’ve had a sunburn.
How many skin rejuvenation treatments do I need?
The number of skin rejuvenation treatments you’ll need depends on your skin complaints and aesthetic goals. Eugenia often recommends 3-5 treatments scheduled about 3-4 weeks apart.
How soon will I see the results of skin rejuvenation treatments?
You’ll notice an immediate glow in the first few days following your treatment, but optimal results appear within a few months as collagen regenerates. The collagen stimulation makes your skin look tighter and smoother, but your body needs the time to develop it.
