The glowing skin you desire!

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 pulses of light to produce clear, vibrant-looking skin that you can be proud of.

How does it work?

Specialized pulses target brown spots, sun damage and vessels without harming the surrounding skin. The light delivered to your skin causes them to slowly disappear though your body’s natural healing process.

Areas to be Treated 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.

Preparing for Photorejuvenation

Patients should notify their doctor of any medications they are taking or any recent procedures, as these may interfere with treatment. Your doctor will advise you if and when medications should be discontinued.

In addition, patients with a history of scarring, bleeding, keloid formation or poor healing may want to reconsider treatment with photorejuvenation.

Photorejuvenation Treatment

Photorejuvenation works by using non-invasive pulses of light to even out pigmentation, reduce redness and stimulate collagen growth for an overall younger-looking appearance.

Patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, similar to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin.

Recovery from Photorejuvenation

There is no recovery time and a low risk of complications. However, patients will need to protect their skin from the sun after treatment, as it will be more sensitive than normal.

Results of Photorejuvenation

Multiple sessions are performed every few weeks until the desired result has been achieved. Results will be noticeable after the first few treatments and will continue to improve as treatment progresses.

Side Effects Associated with Photorejuvenation

Patients often look as though they have a sunburn for several hours after treatment. Although rare, there is a risk of mild swelling, blistering, infection and scarring after this treatment.
