Skin Rejuvenation Miami

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Procedure

Laser skin rejuvenation involves injuring or burning the outer skin layers by a laser light. This is to allow for a new epithelial growth on the outside as new collagen forms underneath. Once the skin is healed after a laser treatment, its texture is significantly improved. But the extent of improvement and the recovery time vary depending on how deep the skin injury goes. Deeper laser skin treatments stimulate the collagen layers better and remove more epithelium. However, it requires relatively more recovery time.

Miami Skin Dr specializes in the Intense-Pulse Light technology. This involves a laser that combines two forms of energy: radiofrequency and light. This method achieves skin renewal and rejuvenation by selectively subjecting deeper tissues to heat while cooling the surface of the skin. This procedure ensures minimum swelling, redness, pain, and recovery time.

How Laser Skin Rejuvenation Works

Skin imperfections on the face and elsewhere on the body can occur due to factors such as age, sun, heredity, and even skin disorder. Some of the common skin imperfections include textural irregularities such as acne scars, wrinkles as well as pigmentation changes like sunspots and freckles. Whatever the cause of a given skin imperfection may be, the concept of laser skin rejuvenation has to do with the idea that the given skin imperfection can be addressed by growing a new skin. This is done by burning the old outer skin layers and stimulating the formation collagen to enhance the growth of new skin.

Intense-Pulse Light laser skin rejuvenation is a non-abrasive skin care procedure that does not cause any pain. Miami Skin Dr has successfully used the method in improving the appearance of skin with imperfections related to Acne, Rosacea, Sun spots, Brown spots (related to aging and the sun), and Vascular Lesions/ Port wine stain/ Hemangioma.

How to prepare for laser skin treatment

There is no a lot to do when it comes to preparation for laser skin treatment. But for perfect results, it is imperative to stop using collagen enhancing products such as glycolic acid a week before and after the laser treatment. Otherwise, the products could cause skin irritation and even turn the color of treated areas to red.

What to do after laser skin treatment

After Intense-Pulse light laser treatment, you can go back to your daily activities immediately. However, it is imperative that you apply hydrocortisone 0.5% to the treated areas twice per day for two days. This will go a long way in reducing inflammation and calming the treated areas. You should be gentle to your skin and avoid direct sunlight. You can wear sunblock or sunscreen to preserve your skin. Finally, remember that for best results, you will require three to five sessions not closer than four weeks apart.
