Photorejuvenation, one of the forms of facial rejuvenation, employs intense broad wavelength light which is absorbed by brown and red pigment beneath the skin. This process distributes energy to both epidermis and deep layers of the skin but results in some damage to the epidermis and this is minimized by applying chilled crystals. Reduction of appearance of brown spots, redness and excess blood vessels (sun damage) constitutes the primary function of Photorejuvenation treatments. In addition, it may provide a smooth and soft texture to the skin and may reduce the fine lines or wrinkles on the face. These treatments are performed on chest, neck, face, shoulders and hands. In general these treatments are performed on the areas that exhibit the signs of photo-aging.
Furthermore, Photorejuvenation therapy improves the symptoms of Rosacea and can have significant impact on the quality of life of the patients. Other treatment areas include angioma, red or blue leg veins, cherry, lentigines and matted telangiectasia, tattoo removal and birthmark removal. Various light emitting diodes (LEDs), intense pulsed light and lasers constitute photorejuvenation equipment. Photorejuvenation is performed for somewhere around 15 minutes to 45 minutes and during this process intense pulsed light is delivered to the skin through explicit filters and is passed in several settings (series of six treatments every three to four weeks) to ensure optimum results.
The absorption of light energy stimulates the production of collagen and this inturn softens the skin thereby resulting in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. This process has been considered safe worldwide as it affects only the targeted tissues and retains the intactness of the surrounding tissues. The limitations of this process include the appearance of short term redness, darkening of age spots and bruising. Sometimes this process can be combined with facelift to render complete facial makeover.
The photorejuvenation equipment market can be segmented by technology, application and geography. Based on technology these equipment can be further sub-segmented into three broad categories namely mechanical (LED and laser), chemical (chemical peels) and thermal. Based on the application this therapy is used in treatment of acne, Rosacea, freckles and others. Geographically, North America and Europe regions exhibit large consumption of these services owing to continuously increasing population of working women and increasing preference for these treatments among elderly woman population. Safety concerns and technology skills govern the market growth.
Photorejuvenation equipment market is still in the nascent stages in Asia Pacific and Rest of the World regions, but these exhibit lucrative growth opportunities due to increasing demand for these therapies over expensive cosmetic surgeries and increasing awareness along with high disposable incomes.
