Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation is designed to improve the skin’s appearance by treating wrinkles, sun damage, sagging skin, brown spots, spider veins and more. Laser skin rejuvenation has a number of advantages over other resurfacing procedures, including chemical peels and microdermabrasion, in that it significantly reduces or eliminates side effects such as discomfort, bleeding and bruising. Different types of laser treatments are used to treat different skin conditions. Common types of laser treatments include intense pulsed-light (IPL) skin rejuvenation; photodynamic therapy (PDT); nonablative laser rejuvenation; and ablative laser resurfacing.

Results from laser treatments are usually not immediate, taking several months to appear, and a number of treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the desired results. Although safer than traditional resurfacing procedures, there are some risks, including scarring and unwanted lightening/darkening of the treated skin, associated with laser skin rejuvenation.
