At our practice, patients are able to get Brooklyn skin treatments which will help reduce the aged appearance of the skin. Factors like sun, gravity, and hormonal changes can all speed up a person’s aging process. As this occurs, collagen in our skin will break down and fine lines will form around our eyes, mouth, and brow. Photo rejuvenation treatments treats our skin in a safe, gentle, and effective way so that it will appear smoother and more youthful.

Photo rejuvenation is a minimally invasive dermatology procedure. It will only be used to treat the areas where aging damage has occurred. After treatment, the patient’s skin will look smoother, healthier, and younger looking. Photo rejuvenation can be performed on the face the neck, and on the chest and hands. Photo rejuvenation can be used to treat sun damaged skin, skin with hyperpigmentation, or skin with enlarged pores. If a face is continuously flushed, this too can be treated with our Brooklyn skin treatments of photo rejuvenation. Patients enjoy photo rejuvenation because it has no recovery time. You will immediately have begun to see healthier and smoother looking skin with reduced pores. For many patients, their skin tone is evened out, and wrinkles are reduced. Clearly your skin will look more youthful after this exciting treatment. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, photo rejuvenation treatments can take anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes. Intense light is delivered to the skin through very specific filters. The tissue absorbs the light which in turn stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. The patient’s skin will soften and fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. A patient will generally have six photo rejuvenation Brooklyn skin treatments, which are performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Most patients see improvement after just one treatment. For an appointment to meet with our dermatologist regarding photo rejuvenation, or other cosmetic skin services, contact us today.
