Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Wrinkles will develop as we age due to the breakdown of supporting structures such as collagen and elastin fibers. Sun exposure, smoking, and even facial expressions such as smiling, laughing, and frowning, contribute to the formation of wrinkles. While there are effective treatments such as dermabrasion, chemical peels, and CO2 and erbium laser resurfacing, all of these methods take layers of skin off and require bandages with significant time to recover. Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is a revolutionary new technology that is gentle on your skin and tough on your wrinkles.

Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation, otherwise known as the "Lunchtime Face Lift," has become popular because treatments can be done in a short amount of time with virtually no downtime. This not only treats your wrinkles, but also other facial conditions such as acne scarring, rosacea, facial redness, large pores, and oily skin. In addition, by improving skin tone, it will prevent wrinkles and decrease pore size. This procedure offers many advantages because it is non-invasive with minimal adverse effects. Alternatives such as ablative skin resurfacing, otherwise known as dermabrasion, CO2 or erbium lasers, and chemical peels not only require a difficult recovery period with intense redness lasting up to 4 to 6 weeks, but anesthesia is needed for the significant pain and bleeding. In comparison, non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is virtually painless and will cause only mild redness that is usually resolved within 1 to 2 hours. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately.

Laser skin rejuvenation works by aiding the growth and remodeling of collagen. The laser targets your own layers of collagen beneath the skin’s surface. In a few weeks, the stimulated collagen will fill the void of wrinkles and scars. This procedure does not require local anesthesia and is very well tolerated. Treatments are usually given in 3-4 week intervals for a series of 3-5 treatments. Maintenance treatments for prevention may also be recommended.

Laser skin rejuvenation is often combined with BOTOX® injections to maximize results. Dynamic lines, wrinkles caused by muscle movement, are treated well with the combination. The non-ablative laser technique works to smooth the wrinkles already created while the BOTOX® works best at preventing the worsening of these fine lines. We also offer Restylane® and collagen. Our physician can discuss your best course of action.

All procedures are performed by a board certified physician.
