Photo Rejuvenation

  • Photorejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses a laser, intense pulsed light or other thermal, chemical methods to remove pigmentation and fine wrinkles arising from photo aging/ sun damage. The process induces controlled wounds on the skin, prompting it to heal itself by creating new cells. This process reverses the effects of photo aging to a certain extent by removing wrinkles
  • The procedure itself takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes
  • Chipola MedSpa offers quality services at affordable prices
  • Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Krishna for evaluation and to ask any specific questions about treatment

Q: What is Photorejuvenation?
A: Photorejuvenation is a process in which light or chemical is used to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin. The laser/intense pulsed light is absorbed by pigmentation and dilated capillaries in the treatment area. A series of treatments is used to correct hyper pigmentation, sun damaged skin, rosacea, uneven complexions, dull skins, mild acne scars, corrects dark circles around the eyes, and reduces fine lines.

Q: What If I am interested and want more information about photorejuvenation?
A: Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Krishna. The doctor will use this visit to:

  • Review your medical history, including medication use
  • Discuss risks, benefits and expectations, including what photorejuvenation can and can't do for you
  • Take photos to be used for before-and-after treatment assessments and long-term reviews

Q: What does photorejuvenation feel like?
A: When laser or IPL used you will experience a mild pinch or sting sensation over the treated area.

Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: The treatment takes approximately 15-30 minutes.

Q: How many treatments are required for photorejuvenation?
A: Although each individual case varies, most individuals require anywhere from 1 to 5 treatments. The number of treatments will depend on the severity of the condition treated and whether or not maintenance is required. This can be best determined through a consultation.

Q: What should I avoid after the treatment?
A: Sun exposure and tanning beds should be avoided post treatment, the use of mechanical exfoliants or harsh products such as retinol creams or glycolic acid creams, and excessive heat such as sauna or hot tubes immediately after treatment.

Q: What will my skin look like immediately after a treatment?
A: The skin may have a pink/red appearance (erythema) post treatment for 24-48 hours. Sun spots or hyperpigmentation may appear to be darker, which is normal and expected after treatment. Overall the skin may look and feel tight.

Q: Is photorejuvenation effective for darker skins or black skins?
A: No, photorejuvenation is not suitable for darker skin types since one of the primary targets is melanin. Individuals with darker skins types should consider chemical peels, microdermabrasion and laser genesis for improving skin texture and complexion.
