Facial Laser rejuvenation is becoming one of our office's most popular
cosmetic procedures. Many of my staff say that it is one of the best benefits of working for a dermatologist…they all love it!
Laser rejuvenation is a new non-ablative treatment (ablative treatments damage the epidermis while non-ablative do not) that works simultaneously to repair collagen in the dermis, or deepest layer of the skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the top layer of skin. This exceptional laser treatment selectively delivers amplified pulses of light to the dermis, which causes injury, followed by subsequent repair and stimulation of the existing collagen. Since the epidermis is rarely damaged by this treatment, there are no visible signs that the skin is being rejuvenated as occurs
with other traditional ablative procedures.
The laser rejuvenation can reduce the signs of aging and sun damage, including fine wrinkles, superficial acne scars, enlarged pores, freckles and uneven pigmentation, as well as redness and dilated capillaries associated with Rosacea. This is a great procedure for Floridians who have had repeated sun exposure and want improvement for their face without undergoing high risk, expensive treatments with long recovery periods.
For best results, a series of five treatment sessions spaced approximately four weeks apart is recommended. Each
treatment takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
The beauty of laser rejuvenation is that is can quickly treat the entire face with little downtime, minor discomfort, and minimal risk.
Other areas laser rejuvenation can be used include the neck, chest, and hands. For more information on non-ablative laser rejuvenation of the hands click here.
