Photorejuvenation Treatments

Revitalize your skin with Photorejuvenation, a cutting-edge IPL skin treatment also known as a photofacial. Lasers help improve the appearance of the skin by treating wrinkles, sun damage, sagging skin, brown spots, and spider veins. Lasers are used to treat different conditions of the skin. The IPL system we use at Birem, MD Beauty & Wellness works to rejuvenate the skin. Laser treatments usually do not produce immediate results, taking several months to reveal their effects, and it might take several sessions to see results you are trying to achieve. Experience the transformative benefits of laser skin rejuvenation, a non-invasive solution for a more youthful appearance.

The IPL skin rejuvenation procedure uses high-energy pulses of light to revitalize the skin’s appearance. Treatment options include the removal of red/brown spots, age spots, birthmarks, freckles caused by the sun, spider veins, and acne scarring using this non-invasive treatment option. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, it makes the skin smoother and tighter. This treatment is also effective at removing unwanted hair. As IPL penetrates below the skin’s surface, it leaves the top layer of skin intact, so there is no recovery period after treatment. Sunspot pigments absorb light, and the blood in visible vessels absorbs light and converts it to heat. As a result of the heat, the pigment-producing cells dissolve, and the vessels shrink.
