Skin Rejuvenation Q&A
What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is one of the many cosmetic services available at STL Vein & Cosmetics. The state-of-the-art practice uses the innovative Fotona laser system for skin rejuvenation, allowing them to address many beauty needs without surgery.
The skin rejuvenation treatment at STL Vein & Cosmetics is equivalent to dermabrasion and a chemical peel but with a laser.
What skin conditions benefit from skin rejuvenation?
STL Vein & Cosmetics offers skin rejuvenation to treat many beauty concerns. Skin conditions that benefit from laser skin rejuvenation include:
Age spots and sun damage
For age spots and sun-damaged skin, the team uses the Fotona laser system or intense-pulsed light (IPL). These treatments break up the pigmentation, and your body reabsorbs the cells, leaving behind an even-toned complexion.
Lines and wrinkles
The laser tool also stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is a structural protein found in your skin’s dermal layer that keeps your skin firm and resilient. Production of this protein decreases as you get older, contributing to the development of lines and wrinkles.
Increasing the formation of new collagen helps smooth out the lines and wrinkles to restore a more youthful look.
The laser treatments also help eliminate acne outbreaks by resolving the infection in the follicle responsible for your blemishes.
The laser energy also breaks up scar tissue and promotes new collagen to lessen the appearance of the acne scar.
What can I expect during skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation is a relatively painless in-office treatment. During your session, your provider first cleanses your skin with an antiseptic cloth and has you lie back on the exam chair.
Then, your provider uses the hand-held laser tool to deliver the laser energy to your skin to get the desired results. With the Fotona laser system, the team may use various modes to meet your beauty goals.
There’s no need for downtime following your skin rejuvenation.
How many skin rejuvenation treatments do I need?
Your provider at STL Vein & Cosmetics develops individual skin rejuvenation treatment plans specific to your beauty needs and goals. The team recommends 3-4 skin rejuvenation sessions set at 2-3 week intervals for optimal results.
You should notice improvements in your skin after each session and optimal results within three months after your last session.
