Laser Skin Rejuvenation

mwp derm clinic oct 26

Sun exposure, time, and even stress can take a toll on our skin. Here at Vitality Dermatology, we have several different aesthetic procedures to enhance the life of your skin and are proud to offer the latest in laser technology. Using lasers to rejuvenate the skin offers a non-invasive and often minimal down-time approach to help achieve your aesthetic goals. We cannot underestimate the importance of a medical-grade skincare regimen that often expedite results and reduce possible side effects. This is why every laser patient will begin with an in-depth laser consultation to create an individualized plan. If there are medical skin conditions associated with your concerns, our laser specialists will work with our medical providers to incorporate prescription level products when needed.

Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation:

  • Reduce the appearance of “brown spots” or “age spots” associated with sun damage
  • Reduce redness or visible vessels in the skin
  • Improve overall skin quality and texture
  • Minimize pore size
  • Reduce the appearance of lose or “saggy” skin associated with the loss of collagen
  • Help to improve fine wrinkles
  • Improve skin discoloration and texture associated with acne scarring

Listed below are the most common laser skin rejuvenation treatments we have to offer at Vitality Dermatology. If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact us (hyperlink) to set up a consultation with one of our providers.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

If you are looking for a quick, no-downtime laser procedure to reduce the effects of sun damage skin, redness, or ageing, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) on our Lumenis M22 platform may be the treatment for you. To learn more about this procedure, please see Intense Pulsed Light

ResurFX Laser Treatment

The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment is a fractional skin rejuvenation solution, enabling us to offer you remarkable results for younger, healthier, glowing looking skin. The unique Lumenis® fractional rejuvenation technology allows for comfortable, fast treatment with remarkable results. The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture.

Who is This Treatment For?

One of the benefits of ResurfX™ is that we can use this laser on any skin type. This laser typically is used to reduce the early signs of aging, improve pigment, texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. ResurFX is also indicated to improve the appearance of acne scarring and striae dense (stretch marks).

What to Expect During Treatment?

To ensure utmost comfort, we typically will apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and use the Zimmer Air Chiller.  Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 30-45 minutes.  You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.  Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling may diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day.  We typically will advise you to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.

PhotoFractional Laser Treatment

The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment is a complete skin rejuvenation solution, enabling us to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun spots, vascular lesions, uneven texture and skin tone.  The unique Lumenis® Photofractional rejuvenation technology includes two solutions: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) PLUS ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, so that both skin tone and texture can be treated at the same session.

The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments.   The IPL removes both unwanted pigmentation and blood vessels from the skin, while the ResurFX™ treatment stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin.  Already after the first session, you may begin to notice improvement in skin tone and pigmentation.  Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-6 sessions in 4-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.

What to Expect During Treatment?

To ensure utmost comfort, we typically will apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and use the Zimmer Air Chiller. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session around 1 hour. We begin the treatment with the IPL which may feel similar to a warm rubber band snap on the skin. Next, we immediately begin the ResurFX treatment. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable. Immediately following treatment, it is common to experience redness and mild swelling. These effects may vary depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will usually diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very next day. We strongly encourage you to avoid direct sun exposure for a few days after treatment and wear a daily sunscreen. A post-treatment skin care regimen will be recommended following treatment.
