This treatment is perfect for those looking for a safe, quick procedure to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin. Laser skin rejuvenation has become the procedure of choice among top celebrities and working population who cannot afford time away from work to recover from more intense procedures, or who want a better solution to sun-damaged, aging or acne-scarred skin.
Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.Collagen provides the support network to our skin. As we age, the collagen breaks down causing lines and wrinkles. The laser works by stimulating collagen production. As the new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, years of sun exposure can cause discoloration, large pores, and pigmented or red areas on the skin. Patients report, and studies have confirmed, that this procedure results in a refreshed appearance, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with difficult acne scarring will also notice a marked improvement. Laser skin rejuvenation does not affect the outer layers of skin, so there is no downtime or prolonged healing process at all.
How does it work?
Unlike laser skin resurfacing, laser skin rejuvenation does not actually remove the outermost layers of the skin. Skin rejuvenation uses a gentle laser to pass light harmlessly through the upper layer of skin allowing the laser heat to stimulate collagen growth deep beneath your skin. This collagen will continue to develop after the treatment. Over the next months, your body will slowly and naturally fill in wrinkles and scars on its own. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin. The result is clearer, healthier skin with fewer fine lines, pigmentation and other imperfections.
Is laser skin rejuvenation right for me?
Because the action of laser skin rejuvenation is non-ablative (does not remove any skin) there are many benefits over other traditional laser procedures. The laser treatment is quick and offers no downtime – you can immediately return to your normal activities. There is minimal discomfort, and a very low risk of any complications. Patients will experience progressive improvement over several months for a fresh, natural look. Laser skin rejuvenation is compatible with a whole host of other cosmetic procedures so that maximum results can be achieved.
Is the process painful?
The RevLite® laser emits light in very short pulses. The impact of the energy from the power pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. After the treatment, the area will feel similar to a light sunburn. Typically any discomfort will disappear within a day or so. After the redness clears, the skin returns to its natural color and texture.
