What do we do before Treatment?

Before starting with the treatment, we will get your skin prepared by removing oil from the surface which requires treatment. This is because, removing oil prior to treatment, gives effective results.

After removing the oil, a chemical called Amino Levulinic Acid is applied to the skin. It needs to be applied at least for an hour, to make the skin produce another natural product by name PPIX. Amino Levulinic Acid gets absorbed by your damaged skin and PPIX makes your skin very sensitive to light at least for a period of two to three days.

Then, we remove Amino Levulinic Acid from your skin and activate a very bright light with appropriate color on the surface of your skin, which requires treatment. PPIX produced by your skin will absorb the light and destroy all the damaged areas of your skin. This treatment is continued under your skin for the next three days.

What should I do after Treatment?

You should stay away from bright lights and avoid exposure to the sun for 1-2 days after the treatment. If you get exposed to sun, then it might cause very severe blistering of the skin.

You might be required to use sun block for the rest of your life, in order to make the treatment effective. A moisturizer known as Aquaphor can be used until your skin dryness goes away.

Skin Rejuvenation is three times more effective in this treatment, while compared to PhotoFacial. If you suffer very severe skin damage, then you might be required to repeat this treatment every month, in order to get your desired results.
