Similar to removing medical conditions from your skin, lasers can also help reverse the effects of the sun and time. Sun spots, uneven skin, and even unwanted hair are easy to remove.
Our laser anti-aging treatments can help with:
Aging Skin Brown Spots Skin Resurfacing Sun Damage
Also knows as LimeLight Facial, IPL Photofacial is a non-invasive approach to skin revitalization. The procedure helps improve skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. Areas that can be treated include any part of your face, neck, or neckline with skin redness, tiny veins, or brown spots (even light and previously difficult to treat spots). One to three treatments are typically sufficient to see results.
What to expect
Following treatment, you will notice brown spots start to darken and your skin may appear red and slightly swollen. This is normal and will last from a few hours to a day. In 1-3 weeks darkened spots will start flaking off and fade and redness will be reduced and any mottled complexion improved.
Brown spots on the skin may often be perceived as a sign of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Freckles may have been cute when you were a kid, but now these melanin deposits are looking more like the aging remains from too many days lounging in the sun. Freckles, sun spots, liver spots – whatever you call them, they’re technically known as “pigmented lesions” and they form when melanin concentrates in one area of the skin, usually as a result of overexposure to the sun’s UV rays.
Advanced laser technology with Q-Switched Nd:YAG wavelengths offers a proven method to permanently remove most brown spots, freckles and unwanted pigment. The light vibrates and shatters the pigment and breaks the melanin into micro-particles, lightening and removing the dark, aging spot. Most pigmented lesions disappear after 1 to 2 treatments; deeper lesions may require more treatments.
What to expect
The RevLite emits light in rapid, short pulses at high peak energy for maximum efficacy and comfort. The impact feels like no more than the snap of a thin rubber band. As the light shatters the pigment and diffuses the lesion, the spot will turn gray or white for a few minutes as the skin absorbs the energy. Any post-treatment discomfort will feel similar to a mild sunburn, and any redness will dissipate within a day or two as the skin returns to its natural color.
As the skin ages and the sun wreaks its havoc, the subdermal collagen and elastin support network breaks down. Lines and wrinkles appear, age spots surface and the facial structure soon loses its fight against gravity. Creams and serums can only do so much to fix the breakdown of the skin’s matrix, pigmentation problems and other effects of the sun. Laser therapy, on the other hand, employs a precise wavelength of light energy to go where topical treatments can’t travel. In fact, studies demonstrate that laser therapy helps create a rejuvenated appearance, smoother texture, even skin tone and decreased pore size.
In the past, physicians only used ablative lasers to wound the top layers of the skin. While these aggressive lasers are still used to treat deep wrinkles and advanced photodamage, they can mean significant downtime for the patient RevLite is a non-ablative laser that uses PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) energy for quick full-face treatment options with no downtime and minimal discomfort. As new collagen synthesizes, lines and wrinkles diminish while the facial structure appears and feels firmer and smoother.
What to expect
The RevLite laser is extremely safe when administered by an experienced practitioner. The selective energy targets only collagen fibers or pigment. The addition of the PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse (PTP) feature on the RevLite laser allows practitioners to treat large spot sizes on all skin types, even dark and tanned skin, with the highest degree of safety, effectiveness and comfort. This advanced PTP setting penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen, and diminish wrinkles and acne scars. As the laser is administered, patients describe feeling a tingling sensation. A topical anesthetic is usually not necessary. Because non-ablative laser rejuvenation is a gradual process, four to six treatments spaced three to five weeks apart are typically indicated.
