What is Photo Light Therapy?
Also known as photodynamic therapy, this treatment utilizes light-based therapy to target pigmented skin imperfections below the surface without causing damage or injury to healthy skin or connective tissue. A popular solution for men and women who are seeking a comfortable, sophisticated technology to improve their skin complexion, photo light therapy can help reduce the appearance of:
- Red areas due to vascular issues
- Brown spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
- And more!
How Does Photo Light Therapy Work?
During this well-tolerated treatment, pulses of broadband light wavelengths are emitted into the skin by our experienced medical team. These pulses are absorbed by pigmented areas beneath the skin surface, where they are converted to heat. Targeted skin imperfections are reduced as the skin begins to slough and new collagen is produced to replace damaged skin.
Photo light therapy produces minimal discomfort during the treatment process, with most patients comparing the sensation to a light snapping of a rubber band against their skin.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
One of the main benefits of photo light treatment is that the majority of patients are able to return to normal activities directly after treatment. Some slight post-treatment redness may occur, and proper safety precautions should be taken in the sunlight in order to protect and add longevity to your results.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Typically, at least three treatments are recommended in order to create optimal results. During your consultation, our medical team will assess your individual condition and your cosmetic goals in order to determine if photo light treatment can provide the most direct benefit to your skin. After your skincare needs are met, a follow up treatment once or twice a year for maintenance may be suggested.
