Which symptoms can be treated effectively with Photo Rejuvenation?
Erythema: Photo Rejuvenation is particularly effective for erythema cases of the face, neck or chest. Patients can expect an average of 50-75% reduction* in facial erythema after five sessions*. Benefits have also continued for up to twelve months* after erythema treatment.
Flushing: Until recently, there has been no effective solution for facial, neck or chest flushing. Photo Rejuvenation is extremely effective in reducing the degree of flushing in all patients treated. Most patients report a 75% (or greater) reduction* in flushing.
Rosacea: Patients with active inflammatory rosacea generally experience a considerable improvement in their symptoms after receiving Photo Rejuvenation treatment for rosacea. Most patients are able to decrease or discontinue other treatments for rosacea. Although symptoms of rosacea may re-occur, most patients report a 60% (or greater) improvement* after undergoing laser treatment for rosacea.
Photo-aging and sun damage: Skin that displays fine wrinkling, freckling or irregular pigmentation from chronic sun exposure is visibly improved after a series of sessions. Fine wrinkles have generally shown an average improvement of 15-25% (or greater) after five facial rejuvenation sessions*.
Pigmentation Problems: These include brown age spots, melismas that are coarse, and rough appearing skin with large pores. Patients with this skin type generally experience smoother, softer skin with a visible reduction in pores after treatments. Pore size improves an average of 50% (or greater)*.
Non Facial Sun damage: Chest, dorsal, hand, forearm and legs can all be safely rejuvenated with our Photo Rejuvenation procedure.
Acne Scarring: IPL Photo Rejuvenation is effective in providing erythema treatment while reducing post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation of acne scarring.
How does it work?
SKIN AFFAIR'S pigmentation removal procedure uses advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to deliver controlled light directly to the skin, targeting areas that contain excess melanin (age spots, freckles and pigmentation). The light is then absorbed by the skin, in particular the pigmented areas of the skin. This light then converts to heat, which damages the targeted cells whilst leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Once the light is absorbed into the pigment, the body begins to naturally break this down and eliminate it, revealing fresh, rejuvenated skin that is clearer and more even in tone and texture. You’ll also notice that pigmented areas such as freckles and age spots appear much lighter, and after a few more treatments will continue to fade and eventually disappear.
Photo Rejuvenation can also be used to heat up the dermis and stimulate collagen production, improving skin texture, firmness, pore size and fine lines, and increasing cellular turnover.

How many treatments are needed and how long do they take?
For the best possible results, we recommend one to three treatments but more may be required depending on the depth of pigmentation and damage on the skin. Improvement may be visible after the first session. Optimal results will be achieved with commitment to sunscreen use and avoidance of future sun exposure. Your next session may be performed after four weeks, as long as healing from your previous session is complete. The average session takes approximately thirty minutes, but can vary depending on the area being treated.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Patients with fairer skin tones will achieve the most successful results. Those with darker skin tones will need to be treated on lower fluency levels and will require additional sessions. Patients who have had exposure to sunlight/solarium or fake tan will need to wait until their colour has completely faded before commencing treatment.
We do not recommend this treatment for clients with very dark skin.
Photo Rejuvenation can also treat areas such as the hands, chest, and back.
Are there any side effects?
After a Photo Rejuvenation procedure, the area treated will experience redness, slight swelling and a mild burning sensation. This is completely normal, especially after your first laser pigmentation removal session.
Other side effects may include:
Superficial crusting – This is a positive effect and expected, as this is the body’s way of eliminating pigmentation.
Undesirable pigmentation changes, including skin becoming darker or lighter – influenced by sun exposure and skin types.
Cold sores may be activated.
Blistering may occur.
