Skin Rejuvenation Q&A

What is skin rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation is a term used to describe treatments that address skin damage. Some options, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels, work by removing the outermost layers of your skin to reveal a layer of fresh, glowing cells. 

Others, like Xeo® Laser Genesis and intense pulsed light, also called an IPL photofacial, work by stimulating your body to react from within. This renews your skin cells and helps address a wide range of skin concerns. 


What can skin rejuvenation treat?

Skin rejuvenation can improve many different skin conditions during the same treatment sessions. That’s one of the reasons it’s such a popular treatment choice. Men and women appreciate the value of a single treatment, as opposed to coming in for multiple therapies to address different areas of concern. 

Some of the areas where skin rejuvenation can create impressive results include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Irregularities in skin texture and tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Freckles
  • Spider veins


Some skin rejuvenation treatments are better than others for certain skin issues. Your practitioner will go over the differences during your consultation and guide you toward the option best suited for your needs.  


What is Laser Genesis? 

Laser Genesis is a non-ablative Nd:YAG laser. Some lasers work by vaporizing the targeted outer layers of skin. Laser Genesis takes a much more gentle approach that requires no downtime.

The treatment platform directs concentrated beams of light to the deeper layers of your skin. That light is converted into heat, and your body perceives the heat as damage. It launches a swift healing response, forming new collagen cells. 

That new collagen increases the fullness of your skin, smoothing away wrinkles, shrinking large pores, and reducing the appearance of acne scarring. 


What is an IPL photofacial?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a treatment that does wonders for pigmentation issues. Sessions are often called a photofacial because they rely on the power of brief pulses of light to stimulate your skin. 

IPL is similar to laser therapy because both use light. However, lasers generally use only one wavelength of light, while IPL creates many wavelengths, and in a far less focused pattern. IPL has the ability to penetrate into the deeper layers of skin without harming the outermost layers. 

The light is absorbed by any highly pigmented areas of your skin. As the light converts into heat, those pigment particles are broken apart, and your body then processes and eliminates them. That makes IPL treatments a great option for spider veins, freckles, dark spots, sun damage, and other irregularities in the color of your skin.
