As we age, our skin reflects damage from the sun, the elements and the wear-and tear of daily life. In response, we often seek aesthetic procedures to restore a fresh and youthful appearance. Photorejuvenation, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today, provides the ideal answer. Removing age spots (sun induced freckles), most brown pigmentation and redness due to broken capillaries, these treatments help ‘turn back the clock’. And with no downtime, AFT technology is ideally suited for today’s active lifestyles. In addition to these signs of early again, rejuvenation improves dull complexions, uneven pigmentation and large pores, as well as red flushing skin and rosacea.

Does it Hurt?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate AFT pulsed light treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anesthesia though topical anesthetic is an option for sensitive areas.
Treatment – what to expect?
Photorejuvenation treatments range from 15-30 mins. First the treated area is cleansed and a cool gel is applied. The light pulse is then delivered, with little or no discomfort. After treatment, the gel is removed and the skin is cleansed. You can resume all regular activities immediately.
How many treatments are necessary?
Treatment generally involves a series of five sessions. While some patients see significant improvement in two or three treatments, others may require more.. To maintain results, patients may opt for follow-up treatments
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots many appear darker and capillaries may be more visible. To help guarantee the best results, limit your exposure to sun for several weeks before and after the treatment.
