What is it?
Photo rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of the skin. MVL uses Broad Band Light (BBL) to effectively treat flushing, blushing and brown spots. A short wavelength of broad-spectrum light is used to rejuvenate the skin on the face, neck, chest, arms or hands. Specific machine settings are selected for each treatment area for optimal results. Visible improvement is achieved with little discomfort in a very short time.
What are the benefits?
BBL is used to treat the flushing and blushing of rosacea as well as hyperpigmentation of sun damage providing an overall improvement of your skin. Your skin looks brighter with a more even skin tone, complexion and smaller pore size. Placing heat into the skin stimulates your body to produce collagen thus giving the skin a tighter appearance.
Does it hurt?
BBL if hot and quick and you should leave with only a mild warm sensation that lasts about an hour
How long does it take?
BBL typically takes anywhere from 15-20 minutes depending on the part of the body that is being treated.
How many treatments to I need
Most patients require 3-4 sessions with periodic maintenance. It is recommended that once optimal results are achieved, returning 3-4 times per year will maintain your results.
Is there any downtime?
This is a little to no downtime procedure. For patients with redness and flushing, you will be a little redder when you leave and that should fade in about 2 hours. Patients being treated for hyperpigmentation will see the dark spots getting a little darker at first for a few days then fading to a lighter color or disappearing. Make up, if worn, can be applied immediately after the treatment
