Photorejuvenation is a non-ablative skin rejuvenation technique designed to address many of the common signs of aging in a safe, easy, gentle and effective manner. Photorejuvenation can improve sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age spots, brown spots, enlarged pores, redness and flushing associated with rosacea, and wrinkles and lines. Patients will see an improvement in the overall skin tone and texture after treatment. The result is smoother, healthier, more youthful looking skin. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that is ideal for individuals who are seeking a softer, gentler solution for sun and age damage.
While photorejuvenation is most often performed on the face, other areas like the neck, chest and hands may also be treated. The procedure takes approximately fifteen to forty-five minutes to complete depending on the size and number of areas that are being treated. While discomfort is generally minimal and similar to the snap of a rubber band, a topical anesthetic may be used if the patient so desires. During treatment, pulses of light are delivered to the skin. The tissues absorb the light energy which stimulates the production of collagen.
There is minimal downtime or recovery following photorejuvenation treatment. Patients may experience some minor bruising or redness but these side effects are generally short lived. Most normal activities can be resumed soon after treatment. For optimal results, patients may require a series of treatments that are spaced three to four weeks apart.
