Photo Rejuvenation is an ideal treatment option for those concerned with uneven skin tone due to pigmentation. This treatment works using light energy as heat to target the melanin which is responsible for the darkened appearance.
Immediately after the treatment, there is a noticeable darkening of the pigment which is a good indicator that the treatment will be effective. Once the pigment has been targeted with heat, the body’s lymphatic system will remove the broken down/weakened pigment particles. Over the proceeding 3-5 days, the darkened areas will form a crust which will fall off and reveal visibly brighter and more even skin tone.
