What is photo rejuvenation skin treatment?

Dr. Doris Day, MD

This is a new state-of-the-art treatment for sun-damaged skin, rosacea, enlarged pores, brown spots, and broken blood vessels. What separates this from previous laser treatments is that there is no “down time.” You’ll be ready to go back to your normal routine immediately. This is because the light directly targets specific elements within the skin, leaving the upper layers intact. It can destroy superficial blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin. It can target pigmented (brown) cells deep in the skin, which helps eliminate sunspots without hurting the upper layers of the skin or surrounding tissue. The technology involves intense pulsed light which is different from laser light in that it is a range of bands of light rather than one single wavelength and it is not unidirectional. For this reason it can have different targets in the skin although the end goal is similar, that is to make the skin smoother and more even in tone with more resilience.

Using a combination of intense pulsed light and laser technology, fine lines and wrinkles are greatly reduced. Brown spots and broken blood vessels are markedly reduced or erased. The skin has a smoother texture and a more even skin tone.
