As we age, we begin to see changes in our appearance. We may gain weight, our hair color may change, and we may develop a wrinkle or two. This development of fine lines tends to be a more difficult change to deal with, as it takes time and effort to find the right product to treat and prevent these lines.
In order to treat wrinkles, it’s important to understand the factors that cause them. Researchers have found that one of the leading causes is sun exposure. With sun tanning being a popular regimen, the skin tends to become over exposed to UV rays, which is why it’s important to wear sunscreen with at least 15 SPF. Another cause of fine lines to be aware of is smoking. Along with the other medical issues that it can cause, smoking is a reason for aging with discolouration, and fine lines within the skin.
When understanding the treatment of fine lines, you should know the importance of the collagen within the skin, and how it is essential. If the skin’s collagen begins to break down, it will cause the natural elasticity of your skin to loosen. Once this begins to happen, the skin will become thinner, fine lines form, and it can lead to sagging in the skin, and suddenly, there’s a wrinkle. However, there are solutions. Studies have found that one of the most effective treatments for the renewing of collagen is photo rejuvenation.
Photofacial Treats These Issues
Photo rejuvenation, also known as a photofacial, has been scientifically proven to address a number of complexion irregularities caused by the environment:
Spider veins (technically known as telangiectasias)
A study in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, the official journal of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, found that almost 82% of patients experienced a fair to excellent clearance of spider veins after an average of less than 2 sessions.
Widespread Redness and Inflammation (diffuse erythema)
In the same study, almost 73% of patients experienced a fair to excellent clearance of diffuse erythema after an average of less than 2 sessions.
A study conducted by researchers at Stanford University found that if you undergo just 2-3 photo rejuvenation sessions every year, the gene expression of your skin will be more youthful. As a result, your skin will have better collagen structure resulting in a smoother, less wrinkled and less blotchy complexion. In fact, patients who had routine photorejuvenation sessions over the course of 10 years had significantly younger looking skin that was visibly and texturally better than when they first started their treatments!
The Stanford University study also found that a long term treatment plan reduced the signs of sun damage and strengthened the skin against further sun exposure.
Photo rejuvenation is an effective treatment that can achieve the results you want, but only when performed by an experienced Medical Aesthetician.
