Best Skin Rejuvenation Treatments & Solutions
Fall is the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin with light and laser therapy. Time and time again, as much as we try to prevent sun damage, it is inevitable that the visible signs of sun damage will eventually hit the skin surface. For us Midwesterners, this is especially notable after the summer months. With such a high reoccurrence of sun exposure each summer, we develop unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, and red and brown colored areas on our face, chest, hands and even other body areas. Light and laser therapies can safely reduce or remove these concerns with little or no down-time!
The most commonly sought after treatment is Photorejuvenation. Photorejuvenation is on average a series of five treatments designed to reduce unwanted brown and red pigment, while also improving the surface texture of the skin. We choose from three different light sources depending on skin type and diagnosis, sometimes combining technologies for the most effective result. We have recently added in an additional laser to our array of Photorejuvenation devices, the Vbeam Perfecta.
Vbeam Perfecta is a pulsed dye laser designed to improve red blotchy or discolored skin, “broken” blood vessels, rosacea and localized pigmented spots. Pulsed dye lasers also provide benefits to improve skin texture and tone to restore a youthful appearance. The Vbeam will decrease the number of treatments to reduce redness associated with sun damage or rosacea in most individuals from 3 to 5 treatments; whereas a medical client looking to remove deeper lesions such as port wine stains may expect 8-10. This is a non-invasive procedure resulting in no downtime. Skincare and in some cases makeup will be immediately applied after treatment to cover any pinkness so that you feel confident returning to your normal daily activities.
To accelerate the Photorejuvenation process while also remodeling the texture (lines, scars, wrinkles) of the face, neck and chest, we have also added QuadraLASE™. The QuadraLASE™ is a carbon dioxide fractional resurfacing laser, one of the most advanced technologies to revitalize skin. This technology removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method by leaving surrounding tissue intact.
The skin responds by immediately resulting in new collagen growth and a reduction in the components of sun damaged skin such as “age-spots” (also called sun freckles, liver spots, and lentigines), fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer. The number of treatments is typically 1 with a second if needed 6-12 months later. Because this treatment is more comprehensive, there is typically 7-10 days of manageable downtime, depending on the depth of the treatment. The end result is absolutely rewarding with improvement in the skin’s tightness, vibrant texture and glowing even complexion.
Remember, with every method of treating sun damaged skin, it is most important to follow an effective skincare regimen designed by your treatment provider or by a Skincare Specialist at skinfo®. The regimen that we design for you will accentuate your results, reduce downtime, and most importantly, help to maintain your treatment outcome.
To begin seeing your results by the holidays, it’s important to start early. Keep in mind, most of the non-invasive procedures are done in multiple treatments, therefore if skin rejuvenation is your goal by the holidays, now is the time to begin your series. Book your consultation with a Cosmetic Coordinator to customize a treatment plan based on your needs and goals. Your skin will be revitalized in no time!
