Phototherapy in Bridgehampton, NY
Your skin is one of the natural world’s greatest accomplishments. Purposefully designed over thousands of years, your skin takes information and inspiration from light. But while a little bit of sunlight can help your body produce vitamin D, too much UV radiation can quickly cause premature wrinkles, unsightly blemishes, and even contribute to loose skin.
Photoaging—as it’s called—can quickly degrade the quality and texture of your skin. But what one form of light causes, another form of light can repair. Phototherapy (also called photofacials or intense pulsed light therapy) uses quick, powerful bursts of finely tuned light energy to inspire your skin.
With phototherapy sessions from Wellspring Health, you can make the most of healing light energy to undo years of photoaging. Learn more and contact us today!
Commonly Asked Phototherapy Questions
By using quick, powerful bursts of light energy, phototherapy can deliver dramatic results over a wide surface area with each and every treatment. Light energy is heat energy, and heat energy can inspire your skin to supercharge its natural production of collagen. Tighter, smoother, softer skin is easy to achieve, and certain chronic skin conditions (such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea) can all benefit from phototherapy treatments.
When you trust Wellspring Health for your phototherapy treatments, you can count on the following benefits.
- Increased production of collagen and elastin
- Improved blood circulation
- Decreased inflammation and pain
- Tighter skin
- Fewer blemishes
- Less rosacea redness
When used to target hyperpigmentation and discolored blemishes, phototherapy can deliver permanent results. By overloading discolored skin cells, phototherapy can disband groups of darker skin cells while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. You can still develop blemishes in the future, but the targeted age spots should not grow back in the same way or place as before.
The collagen induction benefits of phototherapy may last for months. Rosacea sufferers may also see a lasting improvement in blushing and flushing. For the best results, you may need several or recurring phototherapy treatments.
Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the human body. But as we age, our natural production of collagen and elastin slows. This slowdown—along with several other aging factors—results in the premature wrinkles, blemishes, and old scars we see in our midlife and later years. Thankfully, by introducing heat into the top layer (epidermis) and middle layer (dermis) of your skin, phototherapy increases collagen and elastin production, tightening and healing skin simultaneously.
