Pulsed Light Rejuvenation

Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing resolute, beautiful, and state of the art skin care solutions to patients in and around Austin, TX. Technological advancements in the area of aesthetic dermatology have led to the development of innovative treatments such as Photo Rejuvenation. Dr. Zimmet recommends this treatment to suitable candidates for a variety of aesthetic and medical skin conditions.

What is Photo Rejuvenation?

Photo rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure in dermatology to improve the appearance of skin in a targeted manner, employing Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatment. The treatment is effective in reducing, removing or lightening the effect of age spots, sun spots, and brown blotches on the face, neck, hands, chest, and other body parts.

Photo rejuvenation can reduce and lighten skin redness, rosacea, broken or dilated blood vessels in various areas. In some cases, the dermatologist may use this treatment to control flushing and enhance skin texture.

How does it Work?

Photo Rejuvenation is a non-surgical skin care solution that involves the application of laser/IPL technology. The dermatologist may use this treatment to improve a variety of skin conditions. Dr. Zimmet’s practice is equipped with advanced IPL technology to provide Photo Rejuvenation treatment to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding areas.

The laser/IPL device will release a range of lightwaves that are tuned and targeted at the RBCs in the blood vessels or melanin, which are present in freckles and age spots. The beam of light passes through the skin and is absorbed by either melanin or hemoglobin leading to fragmentation of melanin pigment or damage of the blood vessel walls. As a result, the melanin pigment and tiny vessels get absorbed by the body, which makes them less conspicuous from outside. The patient gains a smoother, more even and better looking skin.

Treatment Duration

Most effective results with Photo Rejuvenation are achieved when the treatment is administered consistently over a series of three to five treatment sessions. Each session is spaced three to six weeks apart. The patient will experience minimal discomfort and little or no risk of side effects during these treatments. Marked improvement can be seen with each treatment.

However, each patient will respond differently to the treatment. Full five treatment sessions may be required for patients who have suffer more severe sun damage, brown spots, or redness. In exceptional cases, more than five treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired aesthetic goals. Each treatment session may last for anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the extent of surface area to be treated.

Recovery

If Photo Rejuvenation treatment is applied to reduce the appearance of unsightly veins, the skin may appear slightly reddish for about two to five days following the treatment. If the patient wishes to apply make-up in the first few days, it should be done very gently.

In rare cases, a patient may experience mild bruising, which will resolve on its own in about a week. Age spots and freckles may appear darker for the first three to six days, and crusting may occur, which can last for up to 10 days. The skin will clear after that and full effects of the treatment can be seen about a month later.

A wide range of chemical peels are available today, and it is up to the dermatologist and their team of aestheticians to recommend the most appropriate option for a particular patient to match with their individual aesthetic goals. An appropriate chemical peel treatment can help a person achieve a smoother, rejuvenated skin, and enhanced complexion.

Laser targets the dark pigmentation, and manages to remove unwanted hair from the root. The treatment is precise and does not cause damage to healthy surrounding skin. Electrolysis is another treatment option that is effective for both light and dark hair and patients of all complexions.

Skin Exfoliation with Microdermabrasion

This advanced skin care treatment can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve coarser skin, and enhance skin tone and texture by removing the buildup of dead cells from the top layer of the skin.

The treatment is cost-effective and convenient, involving no downtime and quick recovery. Dr. Zimmet recommends this treatment to patients in and around Austin, TX if they are looking for a safe, gentle solution for skin exfoliation.
