LASER REJUVENATION

What is Laser Rejuvenation?

 Skin rejuvenation treatments are recommended to remove unwanted brown spots. Skin rejuvenation uses the laser to target the melanin (brown pigment) cells in the skin to remove the appearance of aging and/or or sun damage to the skin. Once the treatment is completed the body will naturally remove unwanted sun spots and improving aging skin. Skin rejuvenation treatments can be performed on the face, neck, hands and the chest areas and may require multiple treatments. During your initial consultation the physician will work with you to identify the unwanted brown pigment and help you come up with a plan to remove the brown pigment to work your way to beautiful skin. Discounted pricing is offered on treatment packages.

Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skinirregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars.

The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is also called lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization.

The Ideal Laser Rejuvenation Candidate

If you have fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes or mouth or on your forehead, shallow scars from acne, or non-responsive skin after a facelift, then you may be a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing.

If you have acne or if you have very dark skin, you may not be a candidate. This technique is also not recommended for stretch marks. You should discuss whether laser resurfacing is right for you by consulting with the doctor before having the procedure done.

Laser Rejuvenation Procedure

 

The two types of lasers most commonly used in laser resurfacing are carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium. Each laser vaporizes skin cells damaged at the surface-level. This method has been used for years to treat different skin issues, including wrinkles, scars, warts, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and other conditions. The newest version of CO2 laser resurfacing (fractionated CO2) uses very short pulsed light energy (known as ultrapulse) or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage. Recovery takes up to two weeks.

Results from Laser Rejuvenation 

Over the course of the next few days following treatment, the outermost layer of the skin will begin to exfoliate naturally revealing healthier layers of skin. Patients will be able to enjoy their complete results one to two weeks following the procedure. These results typically last about 1-3 years, depending on the patient’s skin quality and lifestyle. Drinking, smoking, sun exposure, genetics, and general health are all factors for lasting results. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is non-ablative laser rejuvenation?


Non-ablative skin rejuvenation uses a laser to improve the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots and minor scars by creating heat in the skin without injuring the surface of the skin. The heat generated by the laser promotes collagen production which causes the skin to tighten and look young and healthy. Nonablative lasers often are fractionated so they deliver heat into the skin through thousands of tiny, deep columns known as microthermal treatment zones with intervening normal untreated skin. The fractional approach allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area was treated. This approach lessens the recovery period and reduces the number of complications that can occur. Multiple sessions are needed in most cases.




What should first be done before considering non-ablative laser rejuvenation?


efore the procedure, an ASDS dermatologist will usually review the patient’s medical history and conduct a physical exam. Let your doctor know if you have a history of cold sores or similar disorders. This is also the time for the doctor and patient to discuss appropriate treatment expectations, potential risks and benefits of the procedure.

Most patients can return to work immediately after the procedure. Redness caused by the treatment can be camouflaged by makeup without any negative effects. The treatment area should be kept well moisturized. Patients should avoid sleeping on the treated area to prevent prolonged swelling. Cold compresses can be applied to alleviate pain. Sun exposure should be avoided after the treatment. Broad spectrum sunscreens of at least SPF 30 should be applied daily.
