Photorejuvenation

The natural consequences of aging on our skin include sun damage, freckles, age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. Photorejuvenation reduces these signs of aging using non-invasive, painless pulses of light. Treatments can also improve the appearance of birthmarks and uneven pigmentation and stimulate the production of collagen. There is no recovery time and low risk of complications. Multiple sessions of about 20 minutes each are performed every few weeks until the desired result has been achieved.

Different types of laser treatments are used to treat different skin conditions. Some of the most commonly used procedures include:

  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) – Light therapy that penetrates deep in the skin and does not injure the surface, best used to improve skin texture and color
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) – Two-part procedure that makes the skin more sensitive to light and then uses the light to reduce redness, age spots and freckles with minimal downtime
  • Non-ablative laser rejuvenation – Used for early signs of aging and requires no downtime
  • Ablative laser resurfacing – Heats the skin to reduce deep wrinkles and other signs of aging, but causes a visible wound that requires healing

Results from laser treatments are usually not immediate and can take several months to appear. Several sessions may be needed in order to reach the patient’s desired results, but laser techniques are often effective in completely eliminating age spots and other concerns.

Although safer than traditional resurfacing procedures, there are some risks associated with laser skin rejuvenation, such as unwanted lightening or darkening of the treated area or scarring. Choosing an experienced doctor can help reduce the risks of these procedures.

What signs of aging can be reduced with photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation can reduce the appearance of many signs of aging on our skin, including sun damage, freckles, age spots, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and redness caused by broken capillaries and rosacea. Treatments can also improve the appearance of birthmarks and uneven pigmentation.

How does photorejuvenation work?

Photorejuvenation works by using non-invasive, painless pulses of light to even out pigmentation, reduce redness and stimulate collagen growth.

How long does recovery take? Are there many risks?

There is no recovery time and low risk of complications, an advantage over other treatment methods such as microdermabrasion and laser peels which cause temporary redness and swelling.

How many sessions will I need?

Multiple sessions of about 20 minutes each are performed every few weeks until the desired result has been achieved.
