What Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation or RevitaLazeTM?
Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is advocated for the treatment of spider veins, acne scars, rosacea (skin redness), pigmentation abnormalities, and the elimination of wrinkles or fine lines. The treatment uses a beam of light to promote the production of collagen, which is necessary for keeping the skin smooth and toned. As one ages, the manufacture of collagen is reduced, thereby making it necessary to utilize a treatment that stimulates the production of this natural protein.
Collagen is required to keep connective tissues elastic and firm, all of which supports the need for the RevitaLaze™ therapy. Plus, laser skin rejuvenation is non-invasive and, therefore, enables patients to see visible results in a smaller amount of time and, generally, at a lower cost.
How Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation Different from Laser Skin Resurfacing?
While laser skin resurfacing removes dead skin cells or skin, skin rejuvenation uses a gentler type of laser, thereby making the procedure a safe and effective process. When laser rejuvenation is used, the light of the laser promotes the production of collagen by passing through the epidermis or the outer layer of skin. After the treatment is completed, the protein substance continues to multiply. As a result, wrinkles and scars become less visible over the passage of time. Because the “cool” light does not injure or affect the epidermis, the downtime or healing process is minimized.
How Long Does Laser Rejuvenation Take?
Each appointment takes no longer than fifteen or thirty minutes, depending on the extent of therapy. Therefore, patients can undergo the SkinLaze™ treatment during their lunch hour and resume normal activities. If you require more intense therapy or a procedure that includes a spa treatment, then the procedure may take as long as an hour.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
Typically, patients schedule three to five treatments over three-week intervals.
What Is the Recovery Time?
Recovery or healing for this type of ablative treatment takes about two weeks.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect?
Usually, the process will not prevent future wrinkling, but you will see an elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, including the reduction of any skin issues, such as acne scars or sun damage.
