Skin rejuvenation is a laser treatment that diminishes the damage caused by prolonged sun exposure and aging. Treatments require little or no downtime as the epidermis is left fully intact. This non invasive method of treating a range of concerns including dyschromias, telangiectasias, and rosacea make treatments a hit among patients who want a refreshed look, but don’t want to suffer painful procedures or endure days, much less weeks, of downtime.

Quick facts:

  • While women make up 80% of the market, the portion of procedures performed on men continues to increase with general social acceptance.1
  • Women ages 30-65 make up the majority of patients, though an increasing number of 20 somethings are seeking treatments to delay the onset of aging.1
  • 18.3 Million procedures were performed in 2007; projections suggest 28.3 Million procedures by 2009.1

Superior treatments require 532 nm KTP for superficial pigmented and vascular lesions. Treatments utilize contact cooling and precise lesion targeting prior to treatment of greater area.

Clinical Outcomes:

  • Gemini® vs. IPL - For subsequent photorejuvenation treatments 14 out of 16 patients chose the 10mm KTP due to increased efficacy, speed and reduced pain during treatment.2
  • The (VariLite™ with ScanLite™ Scanner) 532-nm pulsed laseris a safe and effective device for the treatment of the visible signs of photoaging of skin types I-III.

Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation is a gentle laser treatment for wrinkles and sun damage. This no-downtime procedure is appropriate for the face but also for the chest, neck and hands - anywhere that sun damage shows. Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation is a non-ablative, non-invasive procedure, in which, treatment to the surface of the skin is not damaged or removed. IRIDEX lasers correct pigmentation irregularities and encourage new collagen growth to smooth out existing facial wrinkles.

Superior treatments require 532 nm KTP for superficial pigmented and vascular lesions and 1064 nm Nd: YAG for deep heating. Treatments utilize contact cooling and precise lesion targeting prior to treatment of greater area.

Clinical Outcomes:

  • Combined 532 nm KTP / 1064 nm Nd:YAG treatments … showed improvement of 70-80% in redness and pigmentation, 40-60% in skin tone / tightening, 40-60% in texture and 30-40% in rhytides. Skin Biopsy …demonstrated new collagen formation.2
  • The 532-nm pulsed laser is a safe and effective device for the treatment of the visible signs of photoaging of skin types I–IV. In addition to improvements in color defects, objectively and subjectively significant improvements in texture and fine wrinkles can be expected.3
