Photo Skin Rejuvenation and Resurfacing | St. Louis Skin Solutions
Are you troubled by age spots and areas of skin pigmentation that make you look and feel aged before you time? So often our hands and faces sport these problems. Trying to cover them with makeup is only a temporary fix, as age spots can show through.
There is no reason to live with these unsightly age spots. Our Photo Skin rejuvenation St Louis treatments done in our office by highly trained practitioners even out the pigment in your skin to ease discoloration differences and remove annoying age spots.
Photo Skin Rejuvenation in St. Louis used focused light to target areas of pigment. This is combined with an innovative pneumatic technique that gently identifies areas to be treated and isolates them for the quick application of treatment wavelength.
Skin rejuvenation is an approved treatment for:
- Age spots – brown and red
- Blotchy pigmentation areas on the skin
- Broken capillaries or broken blood vessels that cause flushing and pinkness
- Telangiectasias or fine areas of facial veins
The treatment takes just moments and is not uncomfortable. After consultation with our experts, your treatment takes place in our Skin care St Louis office by trained personnel. Each spot is treated individually.
Age Spot Removal Treatment
This treatment is hygienic, safe and rapid. Broadband light energy, gently applied, is converted to heat energy and absorbed quickly, painlessly into the pigment of the problem area, destroying the blemish. With a little time, it completely disappears. Skin without age spots and surrounding areas are not affected by this treatment.
Treatments are relaxing and comfortable. Gels and numbing are not necessary; nor are cooling treatments or ice packs. The age spots themselves absorb the energy in a way that is free from pain or side effects.
What should you expect at our Skin Care Center in St. Louis?
We will consult with you about the area of concern. We can provide complimentary mapping of UV exposure to help you identify existing areas of sun exposure and potential areas of concern. This can help you see the pattern of your premature facial aging and can help you apply sun block in a better, more informed way. When your treatment begins, we lightly mist the area with a soothing liquid. This helps the handpiece glide easily over skin. Then we use a new, sterile tip and attach it to the machine. You are ready for treatment!
What should you expect during Photo Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
Based on your skin type and tone and needs identified during your pre-treatment consultation, and the body part being treated, appropriate settings are calibrated into the IPL. We then place the sterile handpiece over your problem area.
A gentle pulling sensation follows as your skin is gently pulled up to the light for treatment. In less than a second, mild energy is applied. Quickly your skin is released and the probe glides to the next problem area.
In a clinical study, 100% of patients described no pain during treatment. The experience of treatment was most commonly described as being ‘like a warm massage.’
What should you expect after treatment?
No post-treatment procedures are necessary. You may experience mild red or pinkess for a few hours; this will subside naturally.
Our skin is susceptible to a myriad of cosmetic defaults due to age, sun damage, our lifestyle choices and genetics. Often in our youth we take our clear, glowing skin for granted and don’t protect it as well as we should. Others of us may live a very healthy lifestyle and have always taken care of our skin and yet there are still issues that arise despite our best efforts. Brown age spots, visible blood vessels, freckles, rosacea and sun damage all contribute to older looking skin.
Years of sun exposure can have a big effect on our skin, especially the face, hands, arms, neck, and chest since these areas are often uncovered or shielded from the sun. Thankfully, modern technology is on our side again with the development of Lumecca; a powerful light treatment which targets skin imperfections such as age spots and visible veins, to help create a more even, clear surface of skin whether it’s on the face or elsewhere on the body.
Lumecca is especially advanced because of how quickly it can produce results, how painless the procedure is and how well it can help to remedy even the harshest of spots.
What Will The Procedure Be Like?
Patient undergoing a Lumecca treatment they will be required to wear safety goggles due to the light produced from the handheld Lumecca device. There will be several bright flashes of light that cause a slight elastic sensation. The patient might experience a slight warming sensation and redness directly after the treatment but those feelings will subside within an hour or so. During the next 24-48 hours you may see that your pigmented spots grow even darker but in the next couple of days they will begin to darken and flake off until the skin tone is even and clear.
What Do I Need To Do To Prepare for Lumecca?
Lumecca is a low risk, relatively painless procedure that doesn’t take long to complete. Because it’s such a quick and easy procedure, there really isn’t any preparation required by the patient ahead of time except to be certain to avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning at least a month in advance.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
A noticeable skin improvement will be visible after the first session. Depending on the severity and type of condition being treated, multiple sessions may be advised to achieve optimal results and patient expectations.
How Soon Will I See Results With Lumecca?
Those who receive treatment for their complexion and skin damage will be able to see results within a few days following treatment. The skin will continue to improve over the next couple of weeks. Those who seek treatment for vascular imperfections such as leg veins and spider veins may also see improvement immediately and more so in the next couple of weeks. More photofacial sessions will promote better results overall. Contact us today for more information about our St Louis Skin Solutions at our Liposuction and Skin Care center in St. Louis!
