What is Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation at Optima Medical Spa is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses pulsating beams of energy to eliminate damaged skin cell layers. The treatment is great for treating facial wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation issues, acne scars, and other concerns. Also called a laser peel, laser skin rejuvenation with Laser Genesis technology is considered a great treatment for patients who want clearer and younger-looking skin. Additionally, you'll have little recovery time associated with this type of treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, our Los Angeles, CA physician, Dr. Abraham (Avi) Ishaaya, can answer them during your consultation.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

Am I a good candidate for laser skin rejuvenation?
There are several factors to consider when choosing which kind of laser skin resurfacing procedure is best for you. Laser skin resurfacing is ideal for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you see sun-damaged skin, age spots, acne scars, lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation troubles, this procedure may help correct these complexion blemishes. In addition, laser skin resurfacing works effectively for those who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. This treatment isn't suggested for anyone who has very dark skin tones or active acne. Also, it is important to be aware that there is downtime associated with these laser treatments. Certain patients, based on the condition of their skin, may require as much as 2 – 3 weeks for their skin to normalize. Laser skin rejuvenation with Laser Genesis technology works well for anyone who feels unhappy with their overall complexion. The treatment can address:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmentation issues
- Scaly patches
- Rough texture
Unfortunately, laser skin resurfacing is not recommended for anyone who has very dark skin or active acne outbreaks.
What should I expect with laser skin rejuvenation?
Before your appointment, you should avoid tanning for two weeks and not wear makeup to your treatment. At the time of your procedure, we will ask you to relax in a special treatment chair while the laser handpiece passes over your skin, precisely targeting the needed areas for rejuvenation. You will feel a warm sensation caused by the device, but it shouldn't cause major discomfort. As we carefully pass it over the treatment area, the laser removes damaged skin cells and encourages collagen production. Following your treatment, one of our team members will provide detailed aftercare information to protect your sensitive skin.
How Long Is Recovery Following Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Following rejuvenation sessions with Laser Genesis, an ointment can be applied to the skin, and you can go home to recover and resume most of your normal activities. The treated skin will likely appear pink, with some swelling and irritation. These symptoms subside within a couple of days. Medication can be prescribed to lessen these symptoms. All patients should minimize UV exposure after their laser skin rejuvenation session and use sun protection. It's important to avoid picking at the skin during the healing process to keep it from scarring and to protect the treated area from UV exposure. Once the healing process is finished, the treated skin should feel softer while looking rejuvenated, younger, and clearer. Most patients require between 3 – 6 Laser Genesis rejuvenation treatments for optimal results.
