What light treatment does Dr. Behr have for skin rejuvenation?
Dr. Behr offers elos technology that uses combined energies of Pulsed Light and Bi-Polar Radio Frequency to target pigmented lesions and redness. It can safely and comfortably fade the appearance of skin imperfections and uneven skin tones created by sun damage.
Dr. Behr also has the Revlite Q-Switched Nd-YAG laser to stimulate collagen and help with skin texture, pore size and acne scarring.
A patient who receives photorejuvenation treatment can resume normal activities such as work or school the same day. There is no recuperation time for the IPL procedure. Patients report redness in the treatment area, with the redness typically disappearing within two days.
If numerous brown spots are present they often get slightly darker, lightly flake and peel off over about a 5-7 days. If the treatment is for skin texture or pore size no down time is seen.
It is recommended to wear sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure post treatment to achieve maximum results.
