All About Photo Rejuvenation

Let's face it, we all want more beautiful skin. As we age we can develop fine lines, uneven pigmentation (usually brown or red), and more dullness on our skin. Photo Rejuvenation, also known as a photo facial, can help all these issues. Skin will look more radiant, and beautiful.

That's why our clinic in Toronto, Ontario, Canada offers Photo Facial Rejuvenation, a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that gets rid of these eyesores. At Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, only the best light based systems are used since your safety and satisfaction is our number one priority.

Photo Facial Rejuvenation at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic

Two laser and pulsed light devices are available for the photo rejuvenation procedure: The Sciton Profile™ featuring Broadband Light (BBL™) technology and The StarLux® 500 fitted with the The LuxG™ handpiece.

The photo rejuvenation procedure at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic utilizes the power of pulsed light to gently heat the upper layers of the skin. These pulses of light are emitted in short and gentle bursts at a specific wavelength, which helps to ablate unwanted layers of skin. Doing so also stimulates cells in the target areas, which is necessary for smooth and youthful looking skin.

Procedures take up to an hour, depending on the extent of the problem to be corrected and the number of areas requiring treatment.

Taking place at the state-of-the-art facilities of Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, photo rejuvenation can target the face, arms, hands, and chest to remove age and sun spots, superficial blemishes, some scars, and the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. Special eye protection is worn during the procedure. A specially designed cooling device is used, therefore patients normally feel only a slight tingling or biting sensation during each pulse of light. Most patients find photo rejuvenation fairly painless. A numbing cream may be applied to reduce discomfort.

A series of procedures can be scheduled for those who would like to maintain or improve results. Some patients notice a considerable improvement after a single photo facial procedure.

Photo Rejuvenation FAQ
  • Tell me more about Photorejuvenation.

    Also known as photofacial and photo facial rejuvenation, photorejuvenation is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment for the skin. Skin that has been damaged by the signs of aging, sun exposure, and other trauma can be treated with photorejuvenation at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic to restore its youthfulness.

  • What problems can be treated with photorejuvenation at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic?

    If your skin is plagued with wrinkles, blemishes, acne, and/or its texture is thick and rough, you may benefit from photorejuvenation. The treatment is designed to target the upper layers of the skin, therefore any aesthetic problem that affects these layers can generally be treated. Photorejuvenation can also promote the growth of collagen, thereby tightening and strengthening the skin.
    At Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, some of the most common problems our patients target with photorejuvenation include fine wrinkles and blemishes/hyperpigmentation.

  • What problems cannot be treated with photorejuvenation at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic?

    Photorejuvenation is not suitable for deep wrinkles and creases which go beyond the upper layers of the skin. Although their appearance may be reduced with a series of treatments, it is not designed for such problems. Rather, photorejuvenation is best for fine wrinkles and lines, hyperpigmentation, acne and light scarring.
    Your patient consultant or medical aesthetician may recommend another course of treatment, such as a chemical peel, laser resurfacing, or microdermabrasion.

  • What happens during the procedure?

    During the photorejuvenation procedure, the Sciton Profile™ BBL™ (Broadband Light ) laser or The StarLux® 500 fitted with the The LuxG™ handpiece is used to emit pulses of light directed at the target area to gently heat the top layers of the skin. These layers are ablated so that the fresh layers underneath may be revealed. You will be asked to wear special eye protection.
    A topical anesthetic may be applied to the targeted area prior to the procedure in order to alleviate discomfort.

  • What happens after the procedure?

    Photorejuvenation is a relatively gentle cosmetic procedure. However, because the skin is exposed to intense light, the skin will experience some level of redness or splotchiness. An ointment may be applied to help with healing. The skin will also be sensitive to sun exposure. As a result, it is vital to protect it with a good sunblock up to a year following a treatment session.

  • Who can't undergo photorejuvenation?

    It is highly recommended that those with active skin infections and who experience abnormal scarring seek another course of treatment. Also, those with skin that has been damaged by recent sun exposure may need to postpone their treatment for a couple weeks until the skin is healed.
    Please consult a physician, medical professional or patient consultant for more information.
