As we get older, our skin shows signs of damage from the sun, the elements and the wear-and-tear of daily life. Photo rejuvenation is one of today’s most popular cosmetic procedures to restore a fresh and more youthful appearance. Removing age spots (sun-induced freckles), most brown pigmentations and redness due to broken capillaries, these treatments help “turn back the clock”. AFT technology is ideally suited for today’s active lifestyles with little downtime.
In addition to these signs of photo damage and early aging, AFT rejuvenation improves dull complexions, uneven skin pigmentation, large pores, as well as red flushing skin due to rosacea.
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 pigmented area, and the body begins its natural healing process.
AFT pulsed light’s 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 have documented the safety and effectiveness of AFT light.
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate AFT pulsed light treatment well.
AFT photo rejuvenation 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. Sunscreen is applied and you can resume all regular activities immediately.
Side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the skin may appear flushed, brown pigmented spots may appear darker and capillaries may be more visible. To help guarantee the best results, limit your exposure to the sun for several weeks before and after treatment and be sure to where sun block when outdoors.
