This is an IML protocol, specifically designed for overall photo-rejuvenation of the skin. As its name suggests, is intended to revitalise the skin after the summer, aiding it through the change of season. Handled exclusively by our dermatologists, it combines dermal exposure to two types of light, which:
Skin Revital: athermic led light photo-rejuvenation
It is carried out with athermic Led light at 413 or 633 nm, which is emitted on the area to be treated, following the application of a photosensitive agent (ALA) capable of increasing the photosensitivity of the cells loaded with pigment that typically appear with photoageing.
The photosensitisation effect is produced by the release of porphyrin (a precursor of the HEME group included in the haemoglobin molecule) from the topically applied substance (ALA). Porphyrin presents an absorption peak at 633 nm that confers a penetrability of up to 5 mm.
Next, a gentle light emission is applied, which, in the presence of oxygen, produces photo-oxidation of the biological materials marked and their selective cellular elimination, reaching complete dehydration.
The surface crust resulting from this induced "drying", is naturally eliminated 3 or 4 days later, along with the pigmented keratinocytes. Along with the elimination of the spots achieved by the combination of these two emissions, there are also the following benefits:
The intensity of treatment with Skin Revital depends on the concentration of the photosensitive agent, its incubation time and the exposure time to the athermic light. These parameters are in accordance with the degree of tissue photoageing and the characteristics of the skin in the area to be treated.
This procedure requires 1 to 3 sessions depending on the outcome sought. The patient should avoid sun exposure for 2-3 days and should use total sun block for a month.
