Did you know that photorejuvenation treatment can improve a variety of different skin issues?
Sometimes it seems like aging isn’t always fair to our skin. Our baby face now has signs of aging, sun damage and other problems for the world to see. Luckily, our Andover dermatologists Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening know exactly how to tackle a lot of your skin problems through the use of laser photorejuvenation.
When is photorejuvenation used?
Sometimes referred to as intense pulsed light (IPL) laser treatment, this dermatological procedure may be recommended to help:
- Remove age spots, freckles and sunspots on the face, chest, neck or other areas of the body
- Reduce the appear of visible blood vessels, facial redness or rosacea
- Improve skin tone and texture and to minimize the appearance of pores
When will I start to notice my results?
Laser photorejuvenation treatment usually requires a series of treatments (usually about three to five), each spaced out about a couple weeks apart. The results you achieve through treatment will depend upon the severity of the issues you are looking to address. When you come in for a consultation our Andover skin doctor will be able to give you a better timeline as to when you will start to see results.
How long does treatment take?
Depending on the size of the treatment area, this laser skin treatment can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to complete.
Does photorejuvenation laser treatment hurt?
Some patients report some minor “zinging” discomfort, particularly for the first laser treatment; however, as your skin starts to improve you’ll find that the treatments become easier and easier.
Photorejuvenation can take years off your face. If this sounds like the ideal cosmetic skin treatment for you then what are you waiting for? Call our skin care experts in Andover for a consultation. Let the Rockoff Dermatology Center improve the look and feel of your skin.
