Photorejuvenation is the process of improving the appearance of the skin with the application of light therapy. The procedure involves the formation and stimulation of collagen under the skin. Collagen production, then results in, an improvement of your skin tone, while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines of the surface of the skin.
When the skin sags due to age, collagen becomes more susceptible to breakage and damage underneath the skin layers. A new formation of the substance then acts as a filler, tightening the skin once more to reduce forms of sagging and even wrinkles.
