Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a laser treatment that improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, and photo aging. Treatment also improves the appearance of mild acne scars, reduces large pores, lightens dark circles around the eyes, and reduces fine lines. Additionally, this exhilarating treatment involves little to no “down time” and normal activities can be immediately resumed.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Laser light is applied as a series of gentle pulses to the treatment area. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the pigmentation. Heat then is absorbed by the lesions, and the body begins a natural healing process. Lesions darken before they flake off or are absorbed by the body. Treatment can take place as frequently as every three weeks.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For optimal results, a series of five treatments are recommended. Some patients see significant improvement with two to three treatments while others might require more. Follow-up treatments may be needed once a year to maintain desired results.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Dr. Jayne is always at the forefront of technology that is innovative and revolutionary. We continue that vision with Fotona® Laser Treatments. Fotona® laser treatments allow us to treat your skin problems uniquely as never before possible.
Light years ahead of any other resurfacing technologies, Fotona® laser resurfacing technology precisely penetrates deep into the skin dermis with precision, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact, significantly reducing downtime to recovery. The Fotona® Erbium laser stimulates the production of collagen creating a tightening and smoothing of the skin. Fractional laser treatments with the Fotona® laser allows your skin to heal much faster than if the entire skin surface was treated at once. Fotona® laser treatments effectively eliminate sun spots and age spots, improve uneven pigmentation, and tremendously improve age wrinkles, and acne scars with minimal downtime.
Fotona® Laser Treatments:
Imagine having smooth, hair-free skin without the need for shaving, waxing, plucking or having to go through electrolysis to remove your unwanted hair. Unlike these treatments, our procedure is easy. Using the latest technology, we offer safe, fast, effective and permanent laser hair removal treatments for both men and women.
The Fotona® laser hair removal system offers an extremely effective way to safely and permanently remove unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. FDA approved for laser hair removal, areas that are safely treated include the face and bikini areas, armpits, back and legs.
The Fotona® system works by destroying the blood flow at the base of the hair follicle. When this blood flow is gone, the follicle will die. There are 4 phases in a follicle growth cycle: Early Growth, Active Growth, Regression, and Resting. Only the follicles in the Active Growth phase have enough blood flow to be affected at the time of treatment. The skin is further protected during treatment by blowing chilled air onto the surface being treated thus providing patients with increased comfort.
The system selectively helps to protect the skin while effectively treating the unwanted hair. The Fotona® Laser offers truly non-painful laser hair removal treatment that does not require topical anesthetic or oral pain medication during or after treatment.
How many treatments you might need depends upon your skin color, hair color and coarseness of the hair. Since hair grows in cycles, and the process is only effective on hair during the Active growing cycle, everyone will require repeat sessions. With the Fotona® Laser System any skin type or color may be treated safely and effectively without discomfort.
Spider veins appear as red or purple thread-like structures on the skin surface, and can occur on the face, neck, chest and legs. They are superficial blood vessels that are found on almost everybody. In the legs, they can be found alone or in combination with varicose veins. Alone, they are not a health risk, but often are a cosmetic concern.
Spider veins are generally an inherited condition occurring when small capillaries dilate on the surface of the skin. There are larger veins called reticular or “feeder” veins that are the source for spider veins. Spider veins can worsen for a variety of reasons.
To treat them, we use state-of-the-art technology and a unique combination therapy. Our approach involves the use of the Fotona® laser. The laser produces a unique wavelength of light that safely passes through the skin and is selectively absorbed by the targeted blood vessel. The vein will gradually disappear, leaving the skin intact. Get ready for your summer and upcoming social season without those vexing veins!
Our distinctive treatment approach will improve your appearance and, like with many patients, your self-confidence. The veins will begin to appear lighter after each session. Two to three sessions are usually required to achieve the maximum outcome. The appearance of the vessels will continue to improve for up to one or two months after treatment. Pain associated with treatment is minimal.
