Photorejuvenation Q & A

What is photorejuvenation?

Photorejuvenation is a skin renewal treatment that dramatically reduces the appearance of brown spots, wrinkles, and facial redness without surgery. Dr. DiGregorio offers photorejuvenation treatments with the Icon laser, which gently sends pulses of intense light energy into areas of hyperpigmentation in your skin.

The laser energy stimulates your body’s natural healing response, which transforms your skin into a clear, radiant complexion from the cellular level. You may notice an improvement after only one or two treatments, but many skin conditions require several treatments for optimal results.

 

What skin conditions does photorejuvenation treat?

Dr. DiGregorio uses the Icon laser to improve a wide range of skin conditions, such as:

  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Facial redness
  • Rosacea
  • Visible facial blood vessels
  • Skin discolorations
  • Blotchy, sun-damaged skin

 

What areas can the Icon laser treat?

Photorejuvenation treatments with the Icon laser can help reveal healthy, new skin in various parts of your body, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Tops of the hands
  • Arms and Legs

 

How does Icon laser photorejuvenation work?

Photorejuvenation treatments with the Icon laser are noninvasive, meaning they improve the tone and texture of your skin without incisions, scarring, or other damage to healthy tissue.

The laser delivers very specific wavelengths of light that penetrate your skin, working deep beneath the surface. This removes damaged tissue that causes brown spots and discolorations to appear while simultaneously promoting the growth of collagen and healthy new cells.

Results include improvements in the color, texture, and overall appearance of your skin.

 

What should I expect from a photorejuvenation treatment?

First, Dr. DiGregorio thoroughly evaluates your skin to determine whether laser photorejuvenation is right for you. She may recommend multiple treatments, depending on the type of skin condition you want to improve.

When you come in for the procedure, Dr. DiGregorio provides you with protective eyewear. Although the treatment shouldn’t be painful, she may apply a cooling gel to the area for enhanced comfort. You may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin.

The amount of time it takes depends on the area being treated, but laser photorejuvenation sessions may be as quick as 30 minutes. Afterward, you may experience minor redness and swelling similar to a sunburn. This usually fades within a few hours to a few days.
