Tired of looking older than you are? Want to get rid of those fine lines and wrinkles and restore your face to a more youthful appearance? Photorejuvenation at the Bradford Skin Clinic & Medical Spa uses the UltraPlus Variable Pulsed Light System (VPL), the most effective advanced laser on the market, to give you a smoother and more restored glow to your face, neck, hands and more.
As we age, our levels of collagen density decrease, causing our skin to lose elasticity and become somewhat dull and translucent. Additionally, many of us have a veil of pigment on our skin, that we don’t even know is there, if there aren’t visible sun-spots. VPL pulses light into the skin, heating it to target and remove the unwanted browns and reds delivering a more even skin tone and an all over glow. It promoted the formation of collagen and elastin which tightens the skin, lightens pigmentation, and reduces telangectasias (broken blood vessels), thus proving all over skin tones, texture and appearance.
The Bradford Skin & Medical Spa will provide you with a comfortable and highly effective rejuvenation experience. Upon entering, you will be taken to a private treatment room, and both your professional aesthetician and you will be given special glasses or eye pads to protect tour eyes. A cool gel is then placed on the skin being treated. The smooth surface of the laser wand is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light flash. You may feel a very slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band.
At the end of the treatment, your aesthetician will remove the gel, cleans the area with a warm cloth, and applies a moisturizer with sunscreen. If there is any mild swelling, you might be given a cold pack to apply for five or ten minutes. Depending on the area being treated, the procedure only takes between 10 – 30 minutes.
The number of treatments you need will depend on your age, skin condition, and what you are trying to accomplish. Photorejuvenation, when done properly, almost always consists of a series of 3-6 treatments, usually one every three 2 to 4 weeks. You will see more and more improvement after each treatment.
It depends. If you continue to expose your skin to the sun without sunscreen, new skin damage can occur. But if you take good care of your skin by using quality skin care products, your skin will continue to look good with semi-annual treatments.
The side effects are minimal, consisting of temporary swelling, redness, an accentuation of the brown spots, crusting, and an occasional bruise or small superficial blister (like a sunburn blister). There are rare other side effects which we will review with you in your consent form.
No. Although there are minimal risks to the procedure, photorejuvenation should only be performed by someone licensed to operate the laser. At The Bradford Skin & Medical Spa, our aestheticians undergo rigorous training on the equipment and have successfully performed the treatments on hundreds of satisfied clients.
