                             Photo Rejuvenation Treatment 
Every year, many people suffer from a variety of skin problems on their faces. These include red complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and others. 

Skin problems, such as these can be caused by age, sun exposure, genetics and other factors. With photo rejuvenation, you can combat these effects and improve your facial appearance.

There are ways to treat these facial skin problems, including chemical peels or home skin care products. However, these methods can cause some pain and discomfort for the patients and even have a longer recovery period. Photo rejuvenation has become an easy and effective way to take care of most of these facial skin problems. Unlike other methods, photo rejuvenation is a softer, gentler, and faster method of treatment designed to help you gain a younger, healthier looking facial appearance.

Photo Rejuvenation can be used in the treatment of age spots, freckles, uneven pigmentation, lines, wrinkles and redness. Face the Future for Men Leeds can knock years off your age with Photo Rejuvenation, just look at the client below.

Process of Photo Rejuvenation:
Photo rejuvenation is performed by gently delivering light energy to specific areas through a special hand-piece. These specific areas then absorb this light energy and the production of collagen is stimulated. Collagen helps soften the appearance of aging skin. As the collagen forms, the fine lines and wrinkles in the targeted areas are decreased. Photo rejuvenation can even reduce the redness associated with rosacea (a chronic form of acne). The procedures take only 15 to 30 minutes at the doctor’s office, depending on the amount of areas that need to be treated. So an individual can take their lunch break, have their treatment done, and come back looking younger and healthier.

Many of the signs of aging and sun damage can be reduced by this non-surgical treatment, revealing healthier, younger looking skin.
The skin is prepared, using either a skin peel (for problem skin) or microdermabrasion (for normal skin), followed by Intense Pulsed Light Treatment (IPL). Pulses of red light can be used to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin fibres in the skins deeper layers to improve firmness and texture, whilst yellow light can be used to treat broken capillaries and abnormal pigmentation.

The skin appears fresher, brighter and tighter after just one treatment. Pigmentation marks fade and freckles and age spots can disappear altogether. Lines will be reduced via a ‘skin tightening’ effect. 

Generally ideal candidates for Photo Rejuvenation are people thathave:
Red-flushed faces
Sun-damaged skin
Enlarged pores

Realistic goals and expectations for the procedure
A desire to improve the appearance of their skin
This is only some of the criteria the surgeon would use to determine if you are an ideal candidate for photo rejuvenation. If you want to know if you are an ideal candidate, ask for a consultation with your dermatologist.

Are there any risks or complications involved?
There are no known possible risks involved with photo rejuvenation and the procedure has proven to be safe. Unlike facial plastic surgery, there is no actual pain experienced during the procedure. Most patients have compared the procedure to feel like a rubber band snapping on the skin. Patients can request for topical anesthesia, then the pain is minimal to non-existent. The only marks shown from the procedure will be some redness or bruising, which will eventually fade away.

There is practically no post-operative discomfort, with the exception of some redness or bruising. A flushed appearance may also be present. These symptoms will soon fade away and what’s left is a younger looking skin. The doctor may provide some instructions for you to follow after each treatment; these instructions may include avoiding certain skin cleansers or using sunscreen. In order to achieve the best results, follow the doctor’s instructions.

Will I have to repeat this procedure?
During the first treatment, there is a significant change in the skin’s appearance. However, these improvements will steadily increase with each visit. To achieve optimal results, a series of five to eight treatments may be needed. This all depends on how many treatments are needed and the severity of the area. On the plus side, these treatments only take about a half an hour out of your day. So multiple procedures will not take up too much of your time.

What results will I expect after undergoing Photo Rejuvenation?
Once the final results of the treatments are revealed the individual should notice one or more of the following:
Skin will have more tone
Skin will have a smoother look and feel
Sunspots will fade
Pore sizes will shrink
Fine lines and wrinkles decrease in size
Skin’s appearance will look younger and healthier

It is vital to undergo a full pre assessment to ensure that your skin type is fully assessed and to be  accurate about your medical history. This particular procedure might not be the right treatment for you.  It is crucial that the Doctor does a full History and Physical Examination and listens to your concerns.  It very important to understand the individual needs of each patient because one procedure could work on one patient and then not another.

Each patient’s condition is carefully evaluated and the best treatment(s) are chosen to ensure an optimal outcome. Treatments are performed by Dr. Gary who has extensive cosmetic dermatology experience and training. This allows the Doctor to offer top-quality services in every area of the cosmetic dermatology field, while ensuring patients safety and satisfaction.

New York Dermatology by Board Certified  Dermatologist Dr. Gary Rothfeld  is a board certified NYC  Dermatologist with a  New York City office in Manhattan, New York  providing expert skin care, dermatology, and cosmetic dermatology services.  A Park Avenue practice with an international reputation in general, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology.

I personally see every new patient who visits our office. I am not just a physician, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. My goal is, quite simply, to provide the type of dermatologic care which I  would seek for my own family. This is a very important point, since physicians often use the phrase "Doctor's Doctor" to refer to those individuals who typically are selected by physicians themselves for personal care. I am confident that my practice fully meets that definition. This is the type of 5-star care and service that our patients expect, deserve and receive. I treat every patient the way I would want to be treated: with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their hair and skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options including a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results 

Dr Gary sees every patient himself and  believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.

A significant percentage of my  Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed  on listening to medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further investigation and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists.  I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients.  This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient the cosmetic procedures will not work.

Dr. Rothfeld, recognized by the by the entertainment industry of America as one of the best dermatologists in Manhattan, has organized a comprehensive skin care center offering personalized state of the art services including medical,pediatric, and cosmetic dermatology.
