Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation describes two cosmetic goals — skin tightening and skin resurfacing. These treatments provide our patients with non-surgical solutions for common cosmetic concerns. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers laser skin rejuvenation for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Using laser technologies to rejuvenate the skin is one of the newest advances in cosmetic treatments. Laser skin rejuvenation describes laser treatments that either remove damaged skin or tighten the skin. The process for removing damaged skin is known as “laser skin resurfacing,” and it recommended for:
Lines and wrinkles
Uneven skin tone
Laser skin tightening does not remove layers of skin, but stimulates the production of collagen. The added volume smooths out the skin to give you a younger appearance. The treatments also help with large pores, acne and other issues that affect only the outermost layer of skin.
Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation has two primary benefits. First, these treatments offer options for patients who may not need surgery because their signs of aging are mild to moderate. Second, surgery does not improve the surface of the skin. Other benefits include:
No incisions or scars
Treatments take less than one hour
Results may be immediate
Little to no discomfort during the procedure
How Does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Work?
Specific wavelengths of laser energy target certain types of tissues. Dr. Enevoldsen has equipped our practice with the most advanced and flexible laser systems available. This allows our registered nurse or physician assistant to utilize technologies that are specifically designed for your cosmetic concern rather than risk over-treating the area or unexpectedly affecting surrounding tissues.
What to Expect from Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The procedures for laser skin tightening and laser skin resurfacing are similar. Our trained registered nurse, nurse practitioner or physician assistant uses a special handpiece to direct and administer the laser energy in short bursts. You may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snap. The device is then moved to a neighboring section of tissue. This process is repeated until the entire treatment area has received the required amount of laser energy.
Laser skin rejuvenation may cause some minor symptoms after the treatment. We provide aftercare instructions before you leave our office.
