Facial Rejuvenation Q & A

What is facial rejuvenation?

When you request facial rejuvenation, the staff at Dr. Karu’s office take the time to understand what facial rejuvenation means to you. Some patients are looking for a bright, even skin tone, while others are hoping for safe scar removal or reduction in wrinkles and fine lines. In general, facial rejuvenation refers to procedures that can restore a more vibrant, youthful appearance.

How is rejuvenation achieved?

Dr. Karu uses two safe and effective lasers for facial rejuvenation: the ICON laser, which can provide a wide variety of benefits, and Pellevé, which is highly effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What changes result from facial rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation can address almost any concern you have about your skin, including:

  • Reducing the appearance of trauma and acne scars
  • Correcting uneven or dull skin tone
  • Removing unwanted facial hair
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Correcting age spots

Who is eligible for the procedure?

Facial rejuvenation is completely drug-free and non-invasive, making it an option for nearly any patient. Dr. Karu examines each patient to determine their eligibility for treatment and recommends the safest, most effective laser treatment for their needs.

Who can administer laser facial rejuvenation treatments?

A trained healthcare provider can administer laser rejuvenation treatments. The best way to find the right provider is to review before and after photos of previous patients facing concerns similar to your own.

How much downtime is required?

Neither Pellevé or ICON require downtime following treatment. As a matter of fact, many patients go back to work immediately following their appointment. The team at Dr. Karu’s office provides you with post-treatment instructions, which may including wearing sunscreen or using moisturizer.

Is facial rejuvenation painful?

Before the evolution of laser treatment, facial rejuvenation required painful surgery with a long recovery time. But beauty no longer requires pain. Now, with help from lasers like the ICON and Pellevé System, you can experience complete facial rejuvenation without any pain at all. These treatments are so gentle that many patients describe the sensation as similar to a facial massage.
