Photo Rejuvenation Treatments
We’re pleased to offer Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation, a revolutionary skin treatment using multiple laser wavelengths to reduce pigmentation, broken capillaries, wrinkles and wrinkles and improve facial toning. It is most often performed on the face and neck, but the chest, hands, arms and legs can be treated as well.
What are the benefits?
Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation is ideal for eliminating a variety of problems including:
• broken capillaries
• spider veins
• age spots/sun spots
• large pores
• pigmentation variances
How does it work?
Laser light is absorbed by pigmented areas where it is converted to heat causing a breakup in the pigment. In broken capillaries and spider veins, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the blood and collapses the unwanted vein. For wrinkles and skin toning, the laser stimulates collagen growth. Your medical professional will analyze your skin condition and help you select the most effective treatment for you.
When will you see results?
Effects are cumulative. After the first treatment you will see improvements to broken capillaries, small facial veins and some pigmented areas within a few days. Other improvements such as wrinkle reduction and toning will be more subtle and may take one to three months. Friends may suggest that you look more rested. With each subsequent treatment, subtle changes will accumulate until you have achieved the improvement you desire.
How often can you have it done?
A series of three to six treatments, spaced two to four weeks apart, is our standard
recommendation. Occasionally, more treatments may be needed for certain individuals or conditions. Periodic occasional maintenance treatments may be prescribed for optimal, lasting results.
What can you expect immediately post-treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience some redness, swelling and/or a slight darkening of pigmented areas. The redness and swelling usually dissipate within one to three days however darkened pigmentation may persist and FLAKE OFF for up to one week following treatment. Makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately, if necessary. Additionally, hair growth may be impaired in the treated area, although it is not the intended purpose of this particular treatment. It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer and SPF25+ sun block and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent additional sun damage.
How long does it take?
This treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes. Prescribed topical anesthetics should be applied 30-90 minutes before the treatment time if needed.
