Refresh Your Look in Havertown and the Philadelphia Area
The factors that cause imperfections in the skin vary from person to person. One sees prominent wrinkles and folds from age-related volume loss, another watches spots develop and darken due to sun exposure. Yet another wishes the redness of rosacea and visible veins would fade. Laser skin rejuvenation in Philadelphia & Havertown at Mind Your Skin addresses all of these imperfections and more. We work to treat cosmetic problems at the surface level, or in deeper layers of the skin.
Consequently, Dr. Norbertus Robben chooses from a range of laser and other devices that offer multi-layered approaches, and provides treatment for a wide range of conditions. The best way to move forward is to meet for a complimentary consultation and discuss your specific cosmetic concerns and goals.
How Does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Work?
Laser skin rejuvenation can involve non-ablative devices, requiring little or no downtime. Ablative lasers target deeper layers while also removing cells from the surface in order to promote vigorous exfoliation and improve the look of the skin. Consequently, ablative lasers require some downtime for healing after a treatment.
In either case, the goal is to trigger a response that promotes the production of new surface cells, collagen, and other beneficial effects that give the skin a more youthful look.
What Can Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treat?
Laser skin rejuvenation addresses a large number of issues. Depending on the laser used, it treats brown spots and other effects of sun damage, the appearance of “broken” capillaries, the redness of chronic rosacea, age-related collagen loss and laxity such as “jowls” and “turkey neck,” minor acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and texture irregularities. Talk with the Mind Your Skin team in Havertown or Philadelphia to determine which device is ideal based on the problem to be addressed.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Before and After
Laser Skin Rejuvenation in Philadelphia with ActiveFX™
In addition to the strong skin resurfacing and tissue tightening results achieved with Active-FX CO2, it also renders skin healthier. It does this by building up collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to improve overall skin quality and appearance. In addition to some immediate tightening, this solution reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and also improves skin tone and texture over time. The high-energy laser beam is applies a fractional pattern, allowing for faster healing. It stands alone in combining texture, tone (unwanted pigmentation), and tightening in one procedure. As such it remains the gold standard to date. It also has an impressive safety record and can even be used on the eyelids.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation with Profound®
In addition to the very strong skin tightening results achieved with Profound, this radiofrequency microneedling technique rebuilds collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. This renders skin healthier and enhances overall skin quality and appearance. Global Aesthetics bestows Profound the industry-leading “New Treatment of the Year” award for 2018.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation with Laser Genesis
A unique non-ablative light treatment, Laser Genesis, like a “warm paintbrush,” gently heats the layer beneath the surface. This spurs formation of cross-linked collagen for smoother texturized, firmer, and tighter skin. Fewer lines, smaller pores, and less redness, such as what is seen in rosacea. Patients find that their overall complexion improves to be more vibrant, without the need for the recovery time associated with ablative treatments. Laser Genesis is truly a lunchtime treatment, because it has no downtime. The most common approach is three to five treatments with an annual booster treatment. It is one of the safest laser procedures out there!
Skin Rejuvenation with LimeLight IPL
The LimeLightFacial™ by Cutera® uses non-invasive intense pulsed light (IPL) to balance unwanted skin tones (redness and/or pigmentation). Typically we treat areas exposed to the sun. Especially the face, neck, hands, arms, and upper chest. LimeLight is tunable to your skin type and pigment issues. It can focus on red to brown or a balance between the two. One to three treatments usually suffice. The results are exceptional skin revitalization and can be improved further by combining LimeLight with other treatments.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation with the Erbium Laser
The fractionated erbium laser generates effects that is a “laser peel.” While a chemical peel uses specially formulated topical solutions to exfoliate the surface of the skin, revealing new skin beneath, a similar benefit is generated by the application of laser energy going a little deeper than a peel. Erbium laser resurfacing is good for surface-level lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, or chest. It improves unwanted skin-tones from sun-induced aging. As a result of the range of settings and the specific wavelengths used, downtime is less on average compared with deeper peels. Peels at periodic intervals are great ‘maintenance’ after Erbium rejuvenation.
Additional Treatments to Complement Laser and Other Skin Rejuvenation at Mind Your Skin
Concentrated blood plasma contains numerous growth factors. These easily penetrate into the skin via the microchannels made by various laser and other treatments. This protein and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) enhances your results by promoting cellular and collagen regeneration, as well as structural proteins. It also effectively reduces downtime. You may opt for PRP with ActiveFX, Profound, ErbiumFX, PearlFractional, and SkinPen microneedling procedures. So why not transform a small amount of your own blood into a booster treatment administered immediately afterward!
