Photorejuvenation is one of the most common procedures here at Q Esthetics. The aging process gradually takes a toll on our skin, causing its connective fibers to break down. The abundant collagen, moisture and fat contained in our tissue when we’re young, begins to diminish over time. Exposure to the sun and other environmental factors can also damage or kill skin cells. Genetics, trauma, and hormonal factors can trigger the breaking of capillaries. As a result, rosacea and sun spots may develop over time, sometimes affecting our self-confidence.
Luckily, photorejuvenation, also known as photofacial or fotofacial, effectively treats these conditions – promoting collagen growth, reducing redness, and smoothing wrinkles. In fact, it is the only procedure that can treat all of these conditions at once. At Q Esthetics Laser Clinics, our goal is to ensure you receive the best technology available to date, which is why we now offer Cold Laser Photorejuvenation.
Cold laser photorejuvenation is a low-level laser, making it the gentlest option for laser treatment. While gentle, this scientifically proven, safe light therapy is extremely effective for eliminating redness and inflammation, thereby calming skin. Also known as, “light rejuvenation,” this non-thermal light is approved by Health Canada and the FDA for treating rosacea and regulating cell activity, which stimulates the production of collagen. It uses LED (light emitting diode) technology to target redness, brown spots, and spider veins – gradually fading these areas of concern. Your expert technician will customize the procedure to your area of concern, determining the pulse sequence and wavelength of active energy (blue, red, green, or yellow) in order to ensure that you are satisfied with the results.
Photorejuvenation for sun spots/sun damage
Sun spots or skin discoloration are often caused by aging. These flat spots on the skin are a result of frequent sun-exposure, which is why they are referred to as sun spots. As such, they normally develop on areas of the skin that are most frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, arms, back and hands. This skin discoloration is caused when too much skin pigment, known as melanin, is produced. Since they frequently develop in visible locations, many people search for ways to diminish the appearance of sun spots.
At Q Esthetics, we use Cold Laser Photorejuvenation to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, helping to improve your appearance and self-esteem.
Photorejuvenation for Rosacea
Rosacea is a common skin disorder characterized by facial redness. While it may initially come and go, it can also develop to become persistent redness or red lines, which trace the tiny blood vessels across the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead.
Bumps, tiny pus-filled pimples, and enlarged blood vessels can also appear, giving skin a rough and uneven appearance. Rosacea symptoms will vary among patients and in the severity of symptoms. Facial flushing is a basic part of rosacea, so experts believe that blood vessels may be a key source for the issue. Though the exact cause of rosacea is still unknown, some common factors that may trigger its development include: genetic predisposition, vitamin-B deficiency, temperature change- extreme heat or cold, spicy food, alcohol, cigarettes, and concurrent skin disorders. Stress can be one of the most common rosacea triggers.
Many people mistakenly think that rosacea is just a skin problem, which will slowly go away on its own, but it may actually become worse and more visible if left untreated. Although a number of at home remedies are used to treat rosacea, such as topical therapy and oral treatments, they are often ineffective. Approximately 90% of our patients report having a disappointing experience with at home remedies, which can be very frustrating and discouraging. If you are bothered by the appearance of rosacea, Q Esthetics in Toronto can help. We use the Cold Laser Photorejuvenation to effectively treat rosasea, reducing the unsightly redness and bumps that are characteristic of the condition.

Photorejuvenation for broken capillaries/spider veins
Broken capillaries are tiny blood vessels that commonly surface on the face, legs, and chest. Their spidery appearance has earned them the nickname, spider veins. These capillaries, which typically connect arteries and veins, are caused by a number of factors; including sun exposure, genetics, pregnancy, hormones and irritation to the skin. While it is possible to reduce your risk of developing broken capillaries by avoiding harsh exfoliants and picking at your skin, genetic and hormonal factors make them impossible to avoid altogether.
Although harmless, these red veins may be a source of embarrassment, particularly when they appear on the face. At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic , we understand the effect broken capillaries can have on your self-esteem and well-being; and use Cold Laser Photorejuvenation to effectively treat broken capillaries.

What to expect during and after photorejuvenation?
Cold laser photorejuvenation does not hurt or burn the skin. In fact, this laser treatment actually heals and soothes the skin; so like other facials, it is a relaxing experience. The length of the procedure depends on the area being treated.
In addition to treating redness caused by rosacea, as well as brown spots and broken capillaries, this procedure also encourages the production of collagen that will leave your skin looking smoother and feeling softer. This non-invasive procedure is incredibly safe and has no negative side effects. It requires no downtime, so you can resume normal day-to-day activities immediately afterwards. The treated area may be slightly red following the procedure, but this will quickly diminish. While one treatment will soothe your skin and help restore balance, three to four treatments, scheduled at two-week intervals, will lead to optimal results.
