Skin Revitalization Q & A

What is skin revitalization?

Skin revitalization is one of the many cosmetic dermatology services available at LUX Dermatology. The innovative dermatology practice focuses on providing treatments that improve the health and look of your skin.

For skin revitalization, the team uses the innovative PicoSure laser. Unlike other skin lasers, PicoSure doesn’t use heat to rejuvenate your skin. Instead, PicoSure uses advanced technology that converts the laser energy into gentle pressure.

PicoSure delivers rapid pulses of light energy to your skin that shatters pigmented cells while at the same time triggering your skin’s natural rejuvenation system. The actions of the skin revitalization tool improve the look, tone, and texture of your skin.

What conditions benefit from skin revitalization?

PicoSure addresses many common skin concerns. LUX Dermatology recommends skin revitalization treatment to improve:

  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Freckles
  • Skin discoloration

Skin revitalization treatments are quick and painless and require no downtime.

How does skin revitalization work?

PicoSure combines physics with medical laser technology to revitalize your skin and rejuvenate your look. The advanced laser tool uses a unique wavelength of energy and a special lens that converts the laser heat into gentle pressure.

The laser pressure squeezes the cells under your skin, activating the natural cell signaling process to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Collagen and elastin are proteins found in the dermal layer — the thick middle layer — of your skin. These proteins are responsible for your skin’s strength, vibrancy, and resilience. As you get older, the production of collagen and elastin slows down.

Skin revitalization also improves skin tone by breaking up areas of pigmentation and visible blood vessels.

What happens during skin revitalization treatments?

Skin revitalization treatments at LUX Dermatology take 10-15 minutes and require no special preparation. During your session, you might feel a snaplike sensation as the laser energy hits your skin.

Though well tolerated by most people, if you’re sensitive to pain, your dermatologist can apply a numbing lotion to your skin before the treatment begins.

What can I expect after skin revitalization?

You could notice redness and swelling after your skin revitalization treatment, but these side effects disappear within 1-3 hours. No downtime is needed after your session, so you can go back to your normal day after treatment.

The team could recommend 2-5 skin revitalization treatments every 2-4 weeks to gain the most benefits.
