Look in the mirror, and what do you see? Most of you will see signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, sun and dark spots, and uneven tone and texture. However, there are essential things you can do to improve your skin as you age.
Stay out of the sun’s harmful rays, manage your stress, and eat right are tremendous and natural options. Of course, you also need to get enough sleep and stay hydrated, but if these things don’t work, you can fix these signs of aging by laser skin rejuvenation, a non-invasive procedure that lifts the signs of aging without surgery. Laser skin rejuvenation does not remove your skin but uses a gentle laser using light energy.
What is Laser Rejuvenation?
Laser rejuvenation is not science fiction but a modern, sophisticated technique developed by experts in the medical aesthetic field. Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation uses light energy to trigger natural collagen growth and remove irregular pigmentation. Facial pigmentation includes redness, rosacea, enlarged blood vessels, facial veins, acne scarring, melasma.
Don’t confuse laser skin rejuvenation with laser skin resurfacing. Laser resurfacing reduces wrinkles and skin issues by directing a short, concentrated pulsating beam of light at your skin. The laser precisely removes skin layer by layer. Resurfacing has downtime and can be painful. However, laser skin rejuvenation is gentle and uses lasers that safely pass through the upper layer of skin to trigger collagen growth.
How Does Laser Rejuvenation Work?
Glo Aesthetics uses the Sciton mJOULE with BBL Broadband light. BBL is an innovative light-based technology that sets new standards for treating skin conditions. BBL deposits pulses of light energy that gently heats the upper layers of skin. Within the skin, the light energy is absorbed by targets, such as fine, broken vessels that cause redness and brown spots or pigmented lesions that are caused by an overproduction of melanin. This scientific and biological process destroys the target, eliminating it from the skin and restoring it to its natural beauty, blending its natural tones, making it more vibrant and youthful in appearance and touch.
The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes, making it possible to schedule a laser skin rejuvenation treatment on your lunch hour. After a session, the affected area may be red for up to an hour or so, but you can resume your regular daily activities after visiting your skin rejuvenation clinic.
Scheduling a series of 3 treatments spaced over 3-4 week intervals is recommended. Glo Aesthetics has several pricing packages to choose from depending on your clinician’s recommendations for your best end result.
What areas can be treated?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest, and shoulders.
Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation Safe?
Laser skin rejuvenation is perfectly safe and has minimal side effects. After typical laser treatment, there is mild redness and a sunburn feeling that will fade a few hours after treatment. There may be mild swelling, and brown spots will become darker before naturally exfoliating in about a week.
Preparing for Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Like any procedure, you need to prepare for laser skin rejuvenation. After your consultation, your medical professional will suggest you these steps:
- Stop taking certain medications. Medicines that affect blood clotting include ibuprofen, aspirin, or vitamin E.
- If you suffer from cold sores or fever blisters, you may need an antibiotic or antiviral to reduce the risk of developing these sores from laser treatment.
- Avoid Botox injections, laser hair removal, electrolysis, or use hair removal creams a week before your laser rejuvenation treatment.
- Do not use products that could cause skin sensitivity: no harsh exfoliating scrubs or retinol creams and serums.
After Your Procedure
Because this is a non-ablative fractioned treatment, the post-care regimen is simple. Wear a moisturizing physical sunscreen and stay out of the sun. You may wear makeup 24 hours after your treatment.
