Laser Skin Rejuvenation — The Ultimate Anti-Aging Tool
Healthy skin begins with the basic steps: a cleanser, moisturizer, treatment products and sunscreen. These products are essential to skin vibrance– but can’t repair past damage or reduce wrinkles. Those who want more from their skincare routine, seek advanced options with a aesthetic physician. Lasers are usually the first procedure they explore.
How does laser skin rejuvenation work?
The Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG Collagen provides the essential support network for skin. Collagen decreases with age and sun exposure, causing lines and wrinkles, pigment problems (brown spots), uneven tone and rough or leathery texture. Lasers use a precise wavelength of light energy to target underneath the skin, deeper than any lotions can ever work, (thus stimulating collagen production at the source).
During the treatment, The Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG sends a gentle beam of light passing through the upper layer of skin. It depends on the skin concern you are treating as to which wavelengths are selected. For example, to treat fine lines and wrinkles, the heat stimulates collagen growth deep beneath the skin. As new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are reduced. Studies indicate laser therapy helps create a refreshed appearance, smoother texture, even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. The effects will continue even after treatment. The difference can be seen once the fine lines are filled with new collagen. To treat pigmentation it causes the pigmented areas to break up and re-absorb into the skin, thus lightening or even eliminates the skin pigmentation. Laser skin rejuvenation is also suggested for treatment of acne and acne scarring.
Which laser is right for me?
Many lasers used for skin rejuvenation are non-ablative, meaning they do not damage the skin’s surface. The most popular non-ablative lasers like the Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser uses PhotoAcoustic energy to vibrate and re-organize the collagen scaffolding — gently and effectively stimulating long-term collagen remodeling. Other lasers are ablative and use thermal energy to wound the top layer of the skin. These aggressive lasers treat deep wrinkles and advanced photo damage, requiring several days or weeks of downtime. Non-ablative laser treatments that use PhotoAcoustic energy are quick (about 30 minutes for a full face) and require no downtime. There is minimal discomfort and a low risk of complications. Patients will feel a difference immediately and experience progressive improvement over time.
What areas can be treated with Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
The Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser is so multi-functional it can be used all over the body depending on the concern.
What does the laser therapy feel like?
Laser Skin Rejuvenation feels warm on the skin before and after treatment, this feeling normally disappears after a couple of hours.
Are there any side effects of Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser Skin Rejuvenation procedure is non-invasive and so gentle that there is little recovery time needed. There may be some short-term blushing in the treated areas immediately after treatment. Many people describe the feeling of laser skin rejuvenation as a tingling sensation. It is best to avoid strong sunlight during the period of treatment and use a SPF50 if you expect to be out in the sun. You can return to work on the same day!
How many laser treatments will I need?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process. You need six to twelve treatments spaced two to five weeks apart. Patients choose to return for regular treatments to maintain great results.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Laser skin rejuvenation may cause a mild to moderate redness, which fades an hour after treatment. We suggest the use of our post treatment kit for three to five days after your laser skin rejuvenation treatment.
Can I have laser therapy in combination with dermal fillers, neurotoxins or surgery?
Yes — many physicians combine laser therapy with other antiaging tools to customize treatment for the needs of each patient. Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG features an advanced PTP setting (PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse) that safely and gently penetrates the skin to stimulate new collagen. The result is a smoother texture, smaller pores, and a reduction in wrinkles and acne scars.
