Background of Photorejuvenation …
The Photorejuvenation was developed after notable improvements in skin texture were observed in hair removal patients receiving intensified pulsed light (IPL) treatments. Historically, similar improvements to the skin were only achieved with laser resurfacing. Laser resurfacing produces deeper, longer lasting results but requires a long recovery period with many days of downtime. The Photorejuvenation brings an option to people who may not require such a deep treatment or are unable to commit to the lengthy recovery.

How Photorejuvenation Works…
By heating the underlying collagen and elastic fibers of the skin the Photorejuvenation stimulates the production of your own collagen, inducing a filling effect to fine wrinkles and acne scarring. By virtue of the IPL settings, broken blood vessels and skin discoloration will diminish in appearance.
There is no need for anesthesia of any sort with the Photorejuvenation and no associated downtime. Individuals may experience pinkness of the treated area for a few hours immediately after treatment, but makeup can be applied and normal activity resumed.
Results from Photorejuvenation…
Dr. Felice encourages an average of six initial treatments to achieve maximal results, depending on the individual’s skin type and condition. A treatment plan alternates the Photorejuvenation with Parisian Peel® Medical Microdermabrasion. The Parisian Peel® system exfoliates and cleanses the skin which removes the top layer and allows the Photorejuvenation to penetrate deeper to ensure the most optimal results.
