Laser rejuvenation improves the signs of sun damaged skin with minimal downtime. Patients will see a reduction in freckles, blood vessels and fine lines in addition to an increase in skin firmness. After recovery, patients will have a buff shine to their face.
Laser rejuvenation utilizes non-ablative laser technology to safely, easily and effectively improve signs of sun damaged skin. Medical lasers use an intense beam of light to gently remove unwanted, damaged or diseased cells without harming the surrounding healthy cells. Various lasers such as the VBeam, QYag, GentleLase and GentYag Lasers are utilized during the treatment session. The appropriate one will be chosen by the physician based on your skin type and condition.
Lasers heat the dermis (the structural component of the skin) leading to an increase in collagen production which replaces the collagen loss associated with aging and sun exposure. Additionally, as the pores are heated, acne and large pores are improved. Lasers can reduce redness and blood vessels associated with rosacea. Patients will also see a reduction in freckles and fine lines resulting in skin firmness and a more even tone.
