What is PhotoDerm?
Natural Image OC’s PhotoDerm technology (also known as IPL), is a treatment breakthrough that can help correct a variety of skin conditions such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of aging, unsightly small veins, Rosacea, uneven pigmentation and can improve skin texture and other blemishes.
It offers a safe, gently and non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction.
How Does the PhotoDerm Work?
Pulses of a specific type of light (mostly infrared) are applied to the skin. This light is then absorbed by the skin creating warmth. Irregularities such as pigment marks, small veins or clusters of veins will naturally absorb more light. The brown and red pigmented cells in the skin then become much warmer than the healthy surrounding skin tissue. This heat process causes these cells to be reabsorbed by the body, in time fading away. The effect of heating the skin and the deeper layers of collagen is that the skin will also be stimulated to function more efficiently, therefore producing a firmer, fresher complexion, reducing pore size and evening out skin texture, tone and color.
What Skin Problems Will PhotDerm Improve?
PhotoDerm can be used on any part of the face and body, including the hands, chest, back and arms. Because PhotoDerm is not a laser, it is suitable for use on skin that has irregular texture or color. Particular pigmentation conditions of the face may call for a different treatment program such as Cosmelan for melasma or Mixto Laser Resurfacing for more intensive combination skin issues.
Expected Results of Your PhotoDerm Treatments:
- Elimination or reduction of small capillaries or redness (from sun damage or Rosacea)
- Elimination or reduction of pigmentation and discoloration
- Improved firmness to the skin
- Reduction in pore size
- Reduction of fine lines
- General improvement of texture and tone of the skin
The treatment is usually recommended as a series of 3 to 6 procedures (depending on your skin condition) approximately 3 or 4 weeks apart. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes. If you have any questions regarding your skin or the PhotoDerm treatment, contact our office.
