    What does laser skin rejuvenation treat?
    Aside from bringing elasticity and youthfulness back to your skin, laser skin rejuvenation can be used to get rid of skin imperfections.

    Most commonly, this procedure is used to reduce the appearance of:

    • Pore size
    • Fine Lines
    • Wrinkles
    • Birthmarks
    • Scars
    • Sun damage
    • Acne scars
    • Freckles
    • Discoloration
    • Age spots
    • Skin Imperfections

    Are laser skin rejuvenation treatments painful?

    Any laser procedure may cause mild discomfort that most customers compare to the snap of a rubber band. Laser skin rejuvenation treatments with the PicoWay are more comfortable than prior laser treatments because the laser pulse is so quick, one trillionth of a second, that there is little to no heat generated. The PicoWay laser is a photoacoustic (light shockwave) laser rather than the more traditional photothermal (light heat wave) lasers that have been used in the past.

    At Body Details, our licensed medical laser experts use the Zimmer cryogenic device, an advanced cryogenic cooling system that’s used simultaneously with the PicoWay Resolve laser. The Zimmer is used to maximize comfort for our customers by delivering cold air at -32°F to the area being treated, ultimately numbing the outer layers of the skin, without affecting your results.

    If you want to experience what it feels like, while we never offer free trials of treatments, we do offer a "test pulse". Using the laser settings which (based upon your particular factors) we would be most likely to start your treatments with, you could experience 2 or 3 laser pulses. It would not possibly be effective at hair removal, and laser settings do increase, but it would at least give you a sense of how a treatment would feel. For a test pulse, you must still follow the pre-treatment instructions found here, because they are not only for safety, but also affect your skin's sensitivity.

    How many laser treatments will I need?

    The number of required treatments varies from person to person, depending on several factors. These factors include a person’s skin type, skin color, the area being treated, as well as the desired results. While a difference in the skin’s appearance will be noticeable after just one treatment, it may take longer to remove deep tissue discoloration and/or birthmarks. Body Details is the only laser skin rejuvenation center using our trademarked True Laser™ technique, which is the combination of several key factors needed to provide customers with the safest and most effective results in the shortest amount of time. Since the number of treatments can vary from person to person, Body Details® offers both per session and package pricing and has multiple financing options to meet your budgetary needs.

    How long do treatments take?

    On average, treatments take less than 10 minutes. This, of course, depends of the size of the area being treated and is based on a standard facial treatment. The treatment of a larger area may take longer, usually no more than 30 minutes.

    What is the difference between ablative and nonablative lasers?

    Ablative lasers were the original lasers used for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation before nonablative lasers were discovered. These kinds of lasers often created open wounds on the skin’s surface, which encouraged the growth of new skin cells in order to produce results. Treatments using an ablative laser are considered invasive procedures and must be done by a doctor. They usually take 30-45 minutes to treat smaller areas such as the face, and recovery time can range from days to weeks, depending on how quickly your wounds heal. Nonablative lasers are considered noninvasive as they can reach the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis, so there are no open wounds or downtime. Treatments only take 10 minutes on average, and sessions can be performed every 4 weeks if desired to slow down the appearance of aging. Laser skin rejuvenation treatments are not only safer while still achieving similar results, they are also far less invasive and require no downtime.

    Does laser skin rejuvenation cause scarring or any other side effects?

    • Some patients will experience a temporary acne breakout
    • Patients with certain types of skin discoloration such as Melasma should be evaluated by our experts to determine if laser skin rejuvenation is right for them.
    • There is no risk of scarring with laser skin rejuvenation; in fact, it is used to treat scars.

    What guidelines do I need to follow before and after treatments?

    Before receiving laser skin rejuvenation treatments, please:

    • Avoid tanning or excessive sun exposure for two weeks prior to your appointment.
    • Remove all makeup, lotion, and other products from the area.

    During the first 24 hours following laser skin rejuvenation treatments, please:

    • Minimize strenuous activities.
    • If necessary, apply an ice pack or cold compress to the treated area on and off.
    • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds.
    • Use sunscreen throughout your treatment process.
    • Moisturize frequently.

    Potential Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation

    You may also hear laser skin rejuvenation referred to as laser skin resurfacing. Our lasers reach below the skin's surface to treat your unique condition effectively. Benefits include:

    • Smoother skin with an improved texture.
    • The reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
    • Skin that looks and feels healthier without makeup.

    What to Expect During the Laser Skin Rejuvenation Process

    The laser skin rejuvenation process is quick and easy. Most sessions take less than thirty minutes before you can continue your day as usual. Most clients require a series of sessions to see the full results, though many report improvements after just one visit.

    During your visit, we calibrate our lasers with exceptional precision to meet the needs of your skin goals. First, we'll provide you with a FREE consultation to review your skin concerns before developing a custom plan. We'll also provide preparation instructions and how to take care of your skin between sessions. As you process through the treatment process, a medical professional will use a laser on the area you're looking to treat and provide you with aftercare instructions.

    While undergoing laser skin treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. To minimize this mild discomfort, we're able to apply a cooling solution to reduce any pain.

    What to Know About Laser Skin Rejuvenation

    Laser skin rejuvenation can help you look as young as you feel at heart. Whether you come in for a one-time laser facial, or for a series of treatments to reduce acne scars, you're sure to feel amazing once your sessions are complete. Many individuals find that scheduling laser skin rejuvenation treatments on a regular basis helps their skin stay tight, firm, and radiant.

    The PicoWay Resolve Laser

    The PicoWay Resolve laser is the best on the market for laser skin rejuvenation. With its dual-wavelength picosecond fractional laser, the PicoWay Resolve technology can deliver either 532nm wavelengths or 1064nm wavelengths. The wavelength used for your treatment depends on what area of the body you’re having treated, as well as what imperfections you’re looking to treat. Wavelengths emitted at 532nm are used to treat skin issues on or near the surface, while wavelengths emitted at 1064nm are used to treat issues found in the deeper layers of the skin.

    As a fractional laser, the PicoWay Resolve can target the area being treated without affecting or damaging the surrounding skin. The healthy skin around the treated area promotes healing and encourages the growth of new skin cells.

    Treatment Sessions are Fast and Easy

    As most treatments are done in an average of 20 minutes or less, a laser treatment can easily be done on your lunch break or before heading into work. That's the beauty of laser skin rejuvenation. It doesn't take much time to get the skin of your dreams. Laser treatment is one of the safest, most effective cosmetic procedures out there.

    You can schedule a session while you're on-the-go as part of your weekend routine, or swing by after work and still make it home in time for dinner. It only takes a couple of minutes of "me-time" at Body Details to get your skin glowing. Check out all of our services:

    Don't Worry about Downtime

    What makes the PicoWay Resolve laser different from other laser skin rejuvenation procedures is that it uses non-ablative lasers that are able to target deep layers of the skin without damaging the outer layer. This prevents the skin from scabbing or developing open sores, something that can happen with many other laser skin rejuvenation procedures. Even common treatment options such as facial peels, face lifts, and laser treatments of the past that use ablative lasers are considered invasive and will require a lot of downtime.

    Since PicoWay Resolve lasers are less aggressive than those previously used for laser skin rejuvenation, treatment with them is considered noninvasive and requires little or no downtime.

    Side Effects of Laser Skin Rejuvenation

    Some of the most common post-treatment reactions patients experience are slight swelling, redness, slight irritation, and rarely, minimal skin peeling. Often, those who receive laser rejuvenation treatments are encouraged to soothe the treated area with a cool washcloth or a cold compress to reduce these potential post-treatment reactions. Discomfort is rare, but if you find your skin to be sensitive post-treatment, this generally disappears on its own in under an hour.

    Laser Skin Rejuvenation Stimulates Collagen Growth

    Collagen production is the key to making your skin tight and youthful, but as we age our body produces less. It will actually stop production altogether in our thirties. Neocollagenesis, or the process of restoring collagen growth in the skin, can only be done by first damaging the skin. This alerts the body that skin cells are being damaged, to which it responds by producing more collagen. This is the process of laser skin rejuvenation treatment.

    The PicoWay Resolve laser removes any damaged skin cells. These skin cells are then naturally replaced by the body, producing higher levels of collagen so that you can get your youthful glow back. Even those who don’t have discolorations or marks can have facial rejuvenation laser treatments done to help give their skin a smooth, flawless appearance, bring back elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

    Many people find that regular skin rejuvenation treatments eliminate or can reduce the need for expensive skincare products, spa facials, and heavy makeup. As the skin produces more natural collagen, it retains a healthier appearance from the inside out.

    Results after Your First Treatment

    The amazing thing about laser skin rejuvenation is that most patients report seeing a positive difference after just one treatment. With any laser skin procedure, multiple treatments are recommended to achieve the best results. The number of treatments required will depend on your age, skin type, what kinds of imperfections or marks you want to have removed, and other factors.

    Some people receive laser skin resurfacing treatments in place of facials and will get them done monthly to maintain healthy, more youthful skin. It’s best to consult one of our licensed medical laser experts to figure out what treatment plan will provide you with the results you desire. If you're looking for a laser to shrink pores, laser skin resurfacing treatment might be right for you.

    The reason so many patients see results after their first laser skin rejuvenation treatment is that the laser excites the skin just enough to remove dead skin cells and stimulate collagen growth right away. Since the PicoWay Resolve laser is noninvasive, it’s less aggressive than many other forms of facial treatments and works with your body to naturally and dramatically improve the youthfulness and smoothness of your skin. The quality of the laser allows you to go on with your day after each laser treatment. Follow these simple skin care after laser treatment tips for best results.

    How to Prepare for Treatment

    To get started with laser skin rejuvenation, contact our laser specialists today. We provide FREE consultations with absolutely no obligation. At your consultation, a medical professional will examine your skin and discuss your goals. From there, we will devise a custom treatment plan to meet your unique needs.

    We may ask that you remove any makeup prior to your consultation or treatment sessions, or stop using certain skincare products. This is so that we can best address your skin concerns and so our laser can perform at its very best as well. It will also reduce irritation and the possibility of side effects following a laser skin rejuvenation treatment session.

    You should always avoid direct sunlight both before and immediately after laser treatment sessions, as your skin is particularly sensitive during this time.
