Your skin should radiate the natural beauty that your inner self produces, but things like the sun and age can tarnish your outward appearance.
Damage to your skin can come from countless sources, but the results tend to be similar. Resilient marks, wrinkles, creases, lines and other imperfections take residence upon your otherwise beautiful skin.
No amount of topical creams and makeup can make them disappear for good.
Photodynamic light treatment represents one of the most cutting-edge technologies designed to aid in the removal of unwanted dermatological side effects. It can rejuvenate your skin at a cellular level by jump-starting the processes that maintain your body on a day-to-day basis.
Photodynamic light treatment may be just what you need to get the skin you want just in time for 2016.
What is Photodynamic Light Treatment?
Photodynamic light treatment works by utilizing a special topical agent. This chemical makes it possible for light to be used as a destructive agent that can remove unwanted features from your skin.
A technician applies a specialized chemical to your face. If you’re dealing with acne, the acne bacteria absorb this chemical. After an incubation period of a few days, the acne becomes sensitive to light of a certain wavelength and intensity.
Light of a specific wavelength is then applied to the skin. This allows for certain cells to be destroyed without harming the surrounding cells. This is what enables photodynamic light treatment to destroy acne cells without causing harm to healthy skin cells.
This unique process allows photodynamic light treatment to treat:
- Age spots
- Dull skin
- Sun damage
- Other conditions limited to the upper layers of the skin
How Safe is Photodynamic Light Treatment?
Photodynamic light treatment is incredibly safe and versatile. It brings very few side effects with it when it is applied by an experienced professional.
The largest cause for concern with photodynamic light treatment concerns the interaction of light-sensitizing agents with healthy cells. The chemicals used have been tested to target specific cells within the body considered undesirable, which in turn minimizes the risk of damage to other parts of the body.
Other side effects can be avoided by taking care of yourself after receiving photodynamic light treatments. This includes avoiding direct exposure to sunlight, wearing sunscreen, and partaking in a healthy diet.
