Wrinkle Treatment Q & A

How does laser wrinkle treatment work?

Dr. Hermenau uses the RevLite® SI laser from CynoSure® to resurface the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and age spots. The laser treatment incorporates laser light energy from two wavelengths for mild to moderate skin imperfections.

The PhotoAcoustic Technology Pulse™ (PTP) mode on the RevLite Si laser delivers two pulses of light microseconds apart to gently heat your skin. The heat first warms your skin on a cellular level to induce new cell turnover and collagen formation for a fuller, tighter appearance to your skin. Second, the light emitted is absorbed by areas of hyperpigmentation, which breaks down the excess pigment to fade sun spots and age spots.

With this fast and non-invasive laser treatment, you can take years off your appearance and improve the tone and texture of your skin dramatically.

What are the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation?

Compared to other treatments for skin rejuvenation, including injections, chemical peels, and surgery, laser skin renewal offers the following benefits:

  • Decreased risk of infection
  • No recovery time needed
  • Minimal skin irritation following the procedure
  • No injections or medications needed
  • Immediate results

While at-home treatments are also a popular anti-aging treatment option, laser skin rejuvenation is more effective and works more quickly than any over-the-counter product on the market.

What can I expect during a laser skin rejuvenation treatment?

During a laser skin rejuvenation session, Dr. Hermenau first cleans your skin and uses the Zimmer Cooler to direct cool air at your skin to reduce discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, Dr. Hermenau may also apply a topical anesthetic to your skin before your treatment, if necessary.

Once you’re relaxed in a comfortable reclining chair, Dr. Hermenau begins the laser treatment session. You may feel a gentle warming or snapping sensation as the laser pulses on and off. Most treatments last between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

After your procedure, mild redness is normal for one to two days. Dr. Hermenau recommends wearing sunscreen after your treatment to protect your skin from UV radiation. To see the best results, Dr. Hermenau generally recommends two to three laser resurfacing sessions.
