What is skin rejuvenation? Answer: Skin rejuvenation is using technologies that we have today to rebuild collagen in the skin. Collagen is a structural component of the skin and as we get older, we are not producing this much. We are also losing collagen because of the environmental damages that our skin sees such as sunlight. But in order to improve the appearance of the skin and give it a more youthful glow, we are able to use light technology with special filters, both in the form of multi-spectrum lights and laser lights which are non-injuring to the skin and actually improve the appearance and texture of the skin. We are able to get rid of sunspots, we are able to thicken the skin a little bit, so it is more youthful, and we were also able to get rid of any redness and discoloration. In addition to this light and laser treatments, we also offer heat treatments, radiofrequency, and near infrared lights which we use to tighten the skin, and also improve in appearance of fine lines.
