Laser Photo Rejuvenation
Photo rejuvenation falls into three categories:
- chemical, that uses chemical peels,
- thermal, that involves Thermage, and
- Mechanical, based on energy delivery devices.
Laser photo rejuvenation falls in the mechanical category. The procedure is based on a recent development in the laser technology with the advent of more improved, laser based light therapy device. The main advantage of the laser based photo rejuvenation is that it not only improves skin texture, fine wrinkles, scars, and skin discoloration such as sun spots, age spots, and freckles, but, as if as a bonus, it often achieves what is usually expected of a surgical brow lift. A brow lift up to three millimeters is possible with this revolutionary procedure with little or no downtime and few side effects for patients.
However, photo rejuvenation is not meant to be a substitute for surgery. Neither can it totally replace other treatments such as chemical peels. A more common and more appropriate use for this technological advance is where it is applied as a tool for problems that for some reasons cannot be otherwise treated, or as a supplementary treatment that helps improve the results of other, traditional skin treatment options.
Moreover, it must be understood that the results of photo rejuvenation procedure are often incremental, meaning that more than just one treatment session will be necessary before the desired results become visible and satisfactory for patient expectations. Results also depend on how strictly the patients follow our list of preoperative and postoperative instructions including aftercare skin regimen.
The most common medical conditions treated by laser photo rejuvenation procedure include: skin disorders such as acne, acne scars, rosacea, as well as various types of visible vascular lesions. But it can also remove vascular birthmarks and even unwanted hair more effectively and safely compared to traditional methods including older lasers. Finally, the technique has particularly proven useful to significantly improve the full range of conditions and irregularities related to sun damaged and aging skin.
