Laser resurfacing is a technique used during laser surgery wherein molecular bonds are disassociated by laser. It is used for the treatment of wrinkles, solar lentigenes, sun damage, scars, stretch marks, actinic keratosis and telangiectasias or "spider veins".

It can be combined with liposuction to remove excess fat from the chin and jaw area. The skin may be wrinkled after fat is removed and laser resurfacing can help tighten and smooth over the new contours.

Type 1 photorejuvenation refers to the treatment of small dilated blood vessels (telangiectasia) and irregular superficial pigmentation (dyschromia). Treatment over three or more 30-60 minute sessions can give excellent long term results. At Shropshire Skin Clinic these treatments are carried out with one of our IPL treatment heads.

IPL treatment may also have a beneficial effect on skin quality including fine lines and pore size, however, this effect (Type 2 photorejuvenation) is far less reliable. Unless blood vessels and pigmentation are a problem we would generally recommend other approaches to type 2 rejuvenation including Lux1540 fractional laser, skin care products, prescription only retinoid creams, microdermabrasion and skin peels.

Photorejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses intense pulsed light or other thermal or chemical methods to treat some skin conditions and remove wrinkles arising from photo aging.
