UV light from the sun is one of the leading sources of damage to the skin, but light can also be a healing mechanism for the skin. With the right type of non-invasive photorejuvenation—laser genesis or intense pulsed light—damaged cells in the deep layers of the skin that cause dark spots, wrinkles, or uneven skin texture will be strategically destroyed as the growth of healthy new cells is stimulated. Laser therapy targets more age-related damage while intense pulsed light is often used to reverse sun damage. Both treatments may require several sessions for complete results, and both are performed without anesthesia. Skin may be red or irritated following treatment, but patients can immediately get back to regular activities. After a few weeks, skin will have a much smoother and more even appearance.
