Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

What is facial rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation uses innovative technology to improve your skin’s texture and appearance while reducing the signs of aging. With the PicoSure laser system, Dr. Li can address your skin’s issues without the risks, pains, and downtime required by other aesthetic treatments.

With this anti-aging laser treatment, Dr. Li can reduce the appearance of:

  • Dark pigmentation
  • Brown spots
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Loose, sagging skin

By combining a unique energy delivery system with the cutting-edge Focus™ lens, the PicoSure device can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, skin-plumping proteins.

What happens during a facial rejuvenation treatment?

When you see Dr. Li for a facial rejuvenation treatment with PicoSure, she may offer you a numbing agent to minimize any discomfort you may experience. Once you’re prepped, she administers the PicoSure laser, which causes minimal to no discomfort and many patients say simply feels like rubber bands snapping against your skin.

This process improves your skin in two ways. First, it creates a gentle pressure that causes the destruction of particles that lead to skin pigmentation and darkening, giving your skin a more uniform appearance.

Second, this pressure stimulates cell signaling, a biological communication between cells. Although it doesn’t damage your cells, the pressure makes them send a distress signal. Other nearby cells respond, increasing the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that support and volumize your skin.

Most facial rejuvenation treatments last 10-15 minutes.

What can you expect after a facial rejuvenation laser treatment?

After your PicoSure laser treatment, you may experience mild side effects, such as skin reddening, for 1-3 hours after the procedure. Because the treatment is noninvasive, it doesn’t require any downtime and you can return to your normal activities right away.

Depending on the condition of your skin and your anti-aging goals, Dr. Li may recommend 2-5 facial rejuvenation treatments scheduled 3-4 weeks apart. Since the results of these treatments build on one another, your doctor may suggest routine maintenance treatments every six months.
