Refresh Sun-Damaged Skin with Our Non-Invasive Laser Skin Treatment
Our environment can significantly affect the appearance and health of our skin, along with the unwanted signs of aging. When patients in the Richmond, Virginia, area seek solutions for improving their skin’s health, they often approach the team at Cassie Lane Aesthetics to discuss their options. If you are looking for a way to recharge the skin and help improve glow and skin tone, the Refresh treatment from the Quanta System Chrome Lase Station might be the treatment for you!
What is the Refresh Skin Treatment?
This treatment combines multiple laser treatments into one single treatment using the Refresh “skin app” on our state of the art laser. We utilize both 532 and 1064 wavelengths to target both hyperpigmentation and skin texture and tone in one visit.
Patients with the following concerns may be interested in the Refresh treatment:
- Dark spots/hyperpigmentation
- Sun-damaged skin
- Poor skin texture and tone
- Dull skin appearance
What sets the Refresh Skin Treatment apart from other pigment treatments such as IPL?
The Refresh skin laser treatment is able to wipe away low contrast pigment. This means spots that are darker than your skin tone, but not very dark. Other treatments including IPL (over multiple treatments) can do a good job of taking away very dark brown spots against a lighter skin tone. But they fall short when trying to get lighter-pigment sun damage. This means the Refresh treatment removes what IPL, BBL and other laser treatments leave behind. The wavelength of laser in the Refresh treatment does not use heat, it uses photoacoustic technology to shatter the pigment. This is incredibly important when treating patients with melasma which is worsened by laser heat. IPL treatments are contraindicated in patients with melasma. When it comes to treating hyperpigmentation this is the top of the line, most effective tool.
Using laser light energy, the Quanta System Chrome Lase Station offers this special skin app to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and health. The laser light energy is customized and set for the patient’s unique skin and administered deep within to provide noticeable changes in the skin’s texture and tone over time. It uses two types of lasers, one that works to stimulate collagen and elastin production and the other to target pigment in the skin to even out skin tone and reduce redness. Patients may want to schedule regular Refresh treatments at our office to continually enhance their appearance.
What Can I Expect from My Refresh Laser Treatment?
Treatment is performed without anesthetics as it is reportedly well-tolerated by most patients. Most feel a slight prickling sensation that is not bothersome at all. Patients relax as the laser device is run across the face in a treatment session lasting 30 minutes or less. Patients are given aftercare instructions to protect and heal their skin correctly for the best results. There is minimal “downtime”. Expect some redness for a week after your treatment. We encourage patients to schedule several treatments every few weeks until they achieve the skin they desire, then consider maintenance treatments over time.
