Turning back the clock
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 photodamage and early aging, AFT rejuvenation improves dull complexions, uneven pigmentation and large pores, as well as red flushing skin and rosacea.
How does AFT pulsed light technology work?
AFT pulsed light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the sub-surface skin layers and is absorbed by the blood vessels or by pigmentation. The heat impairs the vessel or lesion, and the body begins its natural healing process.
Is it safe?
AFTs pulsed lights gentle energy parameters assure safe, effective treatment. Uniquely shaped AFT pulses precisely heat their intended targets, causing remarkably little or no skin damage or discomfort. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.
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 more sensitive areas.
Treatment what to expect?
AFT photorejuvenation treatments range from 15 to 30 minutes. 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.
