Nothing is quite as beautiful as smooth, soft, healthy-looking skin.

Over time, the first effects of the sun, wind, time and hormones begin to appear. Our skin is our body's largest organ, but maintaining its youthful, vibrant appearance doesn't have to be a difficult process any longer.

Our skin

Our skin is made up of two layers. The epidermis, or outer layer, constantly produces new skin cells to replace the ever-flaking dead skin cells. It is our body's protection from the environment. The dermis, or inner layer, contains nerve endings, oil and sweat glands, blood vessels and also the collagen and elastin which support and maintain your skin's shape.

The aging process

The first signs of aging are when fine lines begin to form around the eyes and lips. Then the collagen and elastin begins to wear out and deeper lines and grooves form in our brow, next to the nose and down to the corners of our mouths. Surface irregularities such as pigment discolorations and acne scarring may also occur.

Many patients wish that there was a safe, easy and quick way to get rid of their red complexion, fine wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and large pores. Fortunately, our advanced technologies enable us to treat these skin imperfections safely, easily and effectively with very little, if any, downtime.

Laser rejuvenation

Advances in the treatment of aging skin have continued to improve, from dermabrasion to chemical peels to CO2 and Erbium laser skin resurfacing. However, all of these treatments exfoliate the protective outer layer of the skin, which may require bandages and a somewhat lengthy recovery period.

Photo Rejuvenation

Photo Rejuvenation is performed by our medical providers for patients in Silverdale, Gig Harbor and throughout Washington to combat skin damage in a softer, gentler way. Advanced, intense, pulsed light and fluorescent pulsed light systems are the latest innovations in non-ablative cosmetic skin rejuvenation. We use our advanced light systems to restore a more youthful appearance to your skin by efficiently treating redness, flushing, pigmentary problems, scars and wrinkles; to provide you with smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin.

How does Photo Rejuvenation work?

Photo Rejuvenation systems deliver pulses of intense light, through very specific filters, to the skin. Once delivered, the targeted tissue absorbs the light's energy. There will be a series of 5 - 8 treatments depending on the area and the condition of your skin. Treatments take between 15 - 30 minutes and are administered in the doctor's office.

What are the benefits of Photo Rejuvenation?

  • No downtime
  • Healthier-looking skin
  • Smoother skin
  • Reduced pore size
  • More even skin tone
  • Reduced redness and flushing
  • Reduced wrinkle size

Will Photo Rejuvenation improve rosacea?

Yes. Patients with rosacea will see a progressive reduction in redness with every treatment. The redness and flushing caused by rosacea can be reduced by 80 to 90 percent.

Who are the best candidates for Photo Rejuvenation?

The best candidates have:

  • Red, flushed faces
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores

What results can I expect from Photo Rejuvenation?

After your physician performs each Photo Rejuvenation session, you will experience some improvement in skin tone and texture. There will be a decrease in the overall redness and flushing. Sunspots will fade; pore sizes will shrink. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually decrease in size as the new collagen forms beneath the skin. These improvements will continue to increase with each treatment.
