Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC

What is laser skin rejuvenation?

Laser skin rejuvenation is a noninvasive solution for common skin issues like poor tone or texture, or hyperpigmentation. The doctors at The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC, choose the PiQo4 laser for skin rejuvenation because it's one of the most powerful and advanced treatments available today.

The PiQo4 laser treats skin problems, such as:

  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage

PiQo4 laser treatments target the source by accessing the deeper skin layers where the damage started. It shatters the problematic pigment into microscopic fragments that your body will expel naturally over the course of several days or weeks following the treatment.

For most people, the face is the most common treatment area, but laser skin rejuvenation can also work on your hands, chest, and neck. It's best suited for small- to medium-sized areas.

How does laser skin rejuvenation work?

First, your doctor at The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC, makes sure that your skin is clean. Then he applies a topical anesthetic cream in the areas targeted for treatment. The cream helps numb the skin and prevent discomfort from the heat of the laser.

Second, your doctor gently glides the handheld PiQo4 tool over your face to deliver the laser energy directly into the problem areas. In most cases, the treatment takes under half an hour.  As soon as you're done, you can immediately go back to your normal routine.

How many laser skin rejuvenation treatments do I need?

The number of treatments depends on your skin problem and on how severe it is. Most men and women get optimal results from just a few laser skin rejuvenation treatments. Each session is scheduled at least a week apart.

How should I take care of my skin after laser skin rejuvenation?

Your doctor at The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC, will give you directions on how to care for your skin. It's important to follow all of them for the best results. You'll need to avoid the sun for at least a few days, and your doctor may recommend specific moisturizers or skin conditioners after your treatment as well.
