Uneven skin tone is a common aesthetic problem we all notice as we age, especially if we have an active lifestyle out in the sun. Fortunately, laser skin rejuvenation can improve your skin tone in just a few simple treatments. Plastic Surgery Consultants offers laser skin rejuvenation to the residents of Lexington County, Richland County, and the nearby areas of South Carolina.
What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
After years of unprotected sun exposure, you will notice brown spots, freckles, sun spots, and other damage. You may also notice unwanted vessels around your nose or rosacea on your cheeks. These common concerns can now be removed with laser skin resurfacing, helping you reveal your glowing complexion. Laser skin rejuvenation is ideal for reducing the appearance of pigment on your face, chest, or hands, including age spots, sun damage, freckles, or birthmarks. It is also the perfect solution for unwanted vessels on your face, including spider veins, angiomas, and broken capillaries, or rosacea (redness/flushing of the cheeks). In just a few quick treatment sessions, you will see a texture improvement and a reduction in the appearance of brown spots and vessels, leaving you with a more even skin tone and beautiful looking skin.
Can Laser Skin Rejuvenation Be Used as a Sun Damage Treatment or Age Spots Treatment?
The ICON laser used at Plastic Surgery Consultants is designed to treat age spots, sun damage, and freckles on many areas of the body. This includes sun damage and age spots on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and feet.
Can Laser Skin Rejuvenation Be Used for Rosacea Treatment?
Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the most effective techniques for the treatment of rosacea. Although the condition cannot be fully cured, patients can maintain a clear complexion with regular laser skin rejuvenation treatments.
Can Laser Skin Rejuvenation Be Used for Port Wine Stain Treatment?
Laser skin rejuvenation is an effective solution for the treatment of port wine stains. Many patients achieve a significant reduction in the appearance of port wine stains after just a few quick treatments.
Can Laser Skin Rejuvenation Be Used for Hyperpigmentation Treatment?
Hyperpigmentation can be easily treated with laser skin rejuvenation using the ICON fractional laser system. Patients often notice results after only a few treatments, with a significant improvement in skin tone after multiple sessions.
How is Laser Skin Rejuvenation Performed?
During treatment, specialized pulses of optimized light are used to target brown spots, sun damage, and vessels without harming the surrounding skin. These imperfections absorb the energy delivered to your skin, causing them to slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process. This treatment is fairly comfortable, with most people feeling only a slight “snap” like a rubber band followed by warmth on your skin. You will also feel cooling on your skin as the hand piece glides over the treatment area to help in providing a comfortable session. This process is very quick, usually lasting no more than 30 minutes.
How Many Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Will I Need?
Depending on the condition being treated, one to three treatment sessions are recommended for desired results. Subsequent treatments will be spaced approximately one month apart from one another to ensure that the skin heals properly.
What is Recovery Like Following a Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?
ICON can be safely used on most skin types, and patients are able to resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can expect to see a decrease in the appearance of brown spots, sun damage, and vessels for a more even skin tone. You will see continued improvement over the first six weeks after your treatment. Immediately after the treatment, it is common to feel a mild sunburn-like sensation around the treatment site, which typically lasts two to 24 hours. Redness and/or swelling may accompany this and usually resolves in two or three days. We will discuss any other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you during the consultation.
How Much Does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Cost?
The cost of your laser skin rejuvenation will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your complimentary consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. To help make our treatments accessible to those who need them, we accept a variety of payment options as well as financing through CareCredit®.
