How you look affects how you feel. Whether you’re struggling with a skin condition, such as acne or rosacea, or you’re simply unhappy with the negative effects aging has had on your appearance, then it may be time to consider photorejuvenation.
At Z-ROC Dermatology, our cosmetic dermatology experts Dr. Khongruk Wongkittiroch and Dr. Matthew Zarraga offer a full range of cosmetic treatments to help you look and feel your best. With photorejuvenation, we can erase skin flaws and enhance your natural beauty without you having to give up a lot of your time.
If you’re ready to put your best face forward this year, let us tell you how photorejuvenation can help you get there.
The power of targeted energy
Photorejuvenation is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that solves many skin problems without causing pain or painful and prolonged recovery. At Z-ROC Dermatology, we use an advanced laser-like tool that emits intense pulses of light. This light energy penetrates into the deep layers of your skin without causing any damage to the surface.
Our cosmetic dermatology specialists adjust the range and frequency of the energy based on your specific beauty goals. The energy created also stimulates the regeneration of skin cells to rejuvenate your look. Photorejuvenation also boosts collagen production. This important structural protein restores your skin’s strength and resilience.
Fixing many skin concerns with photorejuvenation
Photorejuvenation is simple, so you may find it hard to believe that it’s our go-to treatment for many common beauty concerns. We use photorejuvenation for:
- Large pores
- Spider veins
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
We may even recommend photorejuvenation to simply revitalize your look and restore your skin’s more-youthful look.
What to expect during photorejuvenation
Before you start your photorejuvenation at Z-ROC Dermatology, we provide specific skin care guidelines you need to follow prior to treatment, including no tanning for up to four weeks beforehand. We also need you to avoid the use of aspirin and ibuprofen, and you’ll need to stop your retinoids or tetracycline treatments three days before your scheduled photorejuvenation session. These guidelines help protect your skin so you get the best results.
Once you’re at the office, we apply a cooling gel to the area of the skin undergoing treatment and place protective eyewear over your eyes. Then we place the photorejuvenation handpiece over your skin and start treatment. You shouldn’t feel any pain during photorejuvenation, only a warming sensation as the light hits your skin.
You may experience some redness and swelling, but these side effects resolve soon after your session. Because photorejuvenation doesn’t damage your skin, there’s no downtime and you can even apply makeup afterward. We do, however, recommend you be diligent about the use of sunblock after each session to protect your sensitive skin.
Photorejuvenation works over time, and most patients get the best results after a series of five sessions.
