Photo rejuvenation is an aggressive medical skin treatment to reverse the signs of aging and thereby improve the health and vitality of skin. Photo-aging results in age spots, actinic keratosis, wrinkles, broken capillaries, blotchy skin, and hyper pigmentation. Most patients wish for easy yet effective solutions that do not disrupt their busy lives. Clinical advancement and sophisticated laser systems offer new treatment options. Photodynamic therapy is an exciting new medical procedure that opens the door to a new FDA approved era of non ablative laser and pulsed light treatments. This therapy combines the application of a photosensitizer (5 ALA, or Levulan) with a laser pulsed light, with dramatic improvements and little downtime or discomfort. Side effects include mild sunburn for 1-2 days with rapid recovery and no risk of scarring. This treatment's main advantage is that is has multiple medical and cosmetic applications. The ideal candidate for photo rejuvenation has sun damaged skin, actinic keratosis, rosacea, acne, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, moderate wrinkles, enlarged pores, or poor skin texture. Following treatment, skin is smoother, softer, and even toned. Acne diminishes or disappears, and pores are smaller. Results often exceed people's expectations.Request a Consultation
