Laser Rejuvenation Therapy
Laser Rejuvenation is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to improve skin tone and skin texture. It is most often performed to correct issues with hyperpigmentation, redness or roughness caused by sun damage and aging. It can also be used for scars, wrinkles and other skin issues, and there are Laser Rejuvenation treatments for hair removal, as well.
Laser Rejuvenation is a versatile treatment that promotes an even complexion and a youthful appearance with a minimum of downtime or discomfort.
How Does Laser Rejuvenation Work?
Laser Rejuvenation uses light energy to target damaged cells or blood vessels in your skin. It works by heating and destroying them, getting rid of the undesirable coloration or texture you wish to treat. It also triggers a cell renewal process that rejuvenates and improves the overall look of skin.
Laser Rejuvenation can emit several different wavelengths of light at once, allowing it to treat several conditions at once. These pulses of light also stimulate collagen and elastin production to restore firmness and lost volume to skin.
Because it uses light, Laser Rejuvenation is sometimes referred to as a photofacial treatment, as well.
Laser Rejuvenation Treatments Can Help Eliminate The Appearance Of:
• Acne and Unwanted hair
• Stretch marks and Scars
• Age spots or brown spots
• Broken blood vessels or spider veins
• Birth marks and Freckles
• Dark spots from hormonal changes
• Skin discoloration
• Fine lines and wrinkles

EXPECT DURING A SESSION
The Laser Rejuvenation procedure is performed using a handheld device calibrated by our medical aestheticians to meet your specific needs. The photofacial feels like a prickling and heating sensation, but it is not particularly painful. If you are worried about discomfort, we can provide you with a mild topical anesthetic on request.
No question is ever unwelcome, and we encourage our clients to ask us anything that may be on their mind.
Does the Laser Rejuvenation process hurt?
Most clients experience mild redness, swelling and possibly irritation that will subside within a few hours to a couple of days. There is no real downtime or after care required after Laser Rejuvenation treatments, but you may want to avoid irritants, direct sun exposure and heavy makeup immediately after your treatment.
How many Laser Rejuvenation treatments will I need?
Your medical aesthetician will be able to evaluate your skin and get a sense of how many treatments you will need. Most people need 3-5 treatments on average for optimal results, but you may need more or less depending on your concern.
How frequent will the Laser Rejuvenation treatments be?
Your treatments will be spaced anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks apart to allow time for maximum renewal and healing.
Am I a good candidate for Laser Rejuvenation?
Laser Rejuvenation is good for a variety of skin types, but because Laser Rejuvenation targets pigment, it is recommended for people with lighter to medium skin. Like laser treatments and other melanin-targeting therapies, it can cause skin discoloration in those with dark skin.
Tell your medical aesthetician if you are on blood thinners, if you are pregnant or if you have any other medical condition before beginning Laser Rejuvenation. You may need to postpone or explore other treatments or take mitigating measures before you begin. Many women like to schedule Laser Rejuvenation sessions several months post-pregnancy to address issues like brown spots from hormones, age spots, broken blood vessels and more.
How long do the results last?
For skin texture and coloration improvements, the results often last for 6 months or more. Because of the continuous effects of aging, sun exposure and hereditary factors, however, you may need to repeat your Laser Rejuvenation treatments in a year or so to maintain your positive results.
