Facial Laser rejuvenation
Facial Laser rejuvenation is becoming popular cosmetic
procedures. Laser rejuvenation is a new non-ablative treatment
that works simultaneously to repair collagen in the dermis, or
deepest layer of the skin, while gently erasing signs of aging
in the top layer of skin. This exceptional laser treatment
selectively delivers amplified pulses of light to the dermis,
which causes injury, followed by subsequent repair and
stimulation of the existing collagen. Since the epidermis is
rarely damaged by this treatment, there are no visible signs
that the skin is being rejuvenated as occurs with other
traditional ablative procedures.
The laser rejuvenation can reduce the signs of aging and sun
damage, including fine wrinkles, superficial acne scars,
enlarged pores, freckles and uneven pigmentation, as well as
redness and vein dilated.
During the procedure, depending on the type of device used, you
may experience mild stinging or burning. The area treated may
also feel hot for about 15 minutes or so after treatment.
1. Significant sun damage in the form of freckles, sunspots.

Laser or light rejuvenation treatment can leave skin blisters or
burns and temporary swelling. While this is rare, it may lead to
mild scarring and changes in skin color or pigment. Some types
of laser rejuvenation therapy aren’t advised for darker skin
Post treatment care
1. Avoid heavy sun exposure, use sunscreen on a daily basis with
an SPF of 30 or higher.

scrubbing with a washcloth, no hot water or harsh soap on the
face. Use tepid to cool water and be gentle with the skin.
Gently blot dry and be careful if you shower not to let hot
water flow over your face.
5. For maximum response, re-treatments are typically done every
four weeks for a total of 5 treatments. Improvements to the skin
from collagen stimulation can be noted up to six months after
the final treatment. Six months after the final treatment
maintenance, treatments can be performed as needed. These are
usually done several months apart or may not be needed at all.
However, most patients will notice improvement after one
6. Most patients return to work or their usual daily activities
immediately following the procedure. The effect of different
light-based systems varies according to the type of equipment
and the person’s skin type.
