There are a number of skincare treatments that can reduce the signs of aging as well as reduce the appearance of raised or depressed scars and acne scars. Phototherapy is a category of aesthetic treatments that has been found to be very effective in decreasing or eliminating the appearance of scars and other blemishes. Dermawave is just one of the many treatments that are available for this purpose, although Dermawave has a few unique benefits.
What Is Dermawave?
Dermawave uses LED light technology and targeted impulses of energy to eliminate or reduce the appearance of blemishes and scars on the skin. Dermawave goes deep into the layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, metabolism, and hydration. All of these things help plump and firm the skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
What makes Dermawave unique is that it can read the Fitzpatrick scale, which is a scale that classifies the responses of different skin blemishes to different light waves and patterns. The machine can use this scale and information to deliver the appropriate light pulses to the targeted area for the most effective results.
How It Can Help
Dermawave can help you in a number of ways depending on your situation. If you just have some deep lines and wrinkles that you want to target in a certain area, Dermawave can handle this. You can also use Dermawave to reduce the appearance of scarring, such as from an injury. One of the more beneficial ways this technology has been used is in reducing the appearance of scars from self-harm, which can greatly improve one’s mental health. You can also use Dermawave to get rid of acne scars and other blemishes.
What to Expect
The Dermawave wand passes over the face smoothly and without pain or discomfort. You may feel some tingling or very mild discomfort while the light pulses are being delivered to the deeper layers of tissue. However, this does not last long. The entire treatment is over quickly, and you have no downtime or recovery so you can immediately resume your day.
