Photo-rejuvenation is a popular cosmetic treatment that addresses the brown pigment or age spots, redness (capillaries or rosacea), targets acne, and improves the overall skin appearance.
During the treatment, a pulsed light energy is heating the targeted skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process. This causes minimal discomfort, however it stimulates cell turnover and promotes collagen renewal.
Patients will experience a mild sunburn feeling and some redness the day of treatment. The pigmented lesions will become darker and will take up to 14 days to exfoliate off the skin. Typically patients can see significant improvement in two-three treatments, however others may need more to achieve ultimate skin goals.
Laser Hair Reduction
The purpose of laser hair reduction is to target the hair follicle in the growing phase(anagen). With the use of the 1064 wavelength the laser light will penetrate to the depth of the hair follicle and damage it during the anagen phase, weakening the follicle to achieve long term reduction.
A series of 6 treatments in 6-8 week intervals is typical for best reduction outcomes. Patient should expect a mild discomfort during the procedure.
