What is laser skin rejuvenation?

This minimally invasive laser treatment is designed to improve the color, tone and texture of your skin. When the laser is passed over the skin, it heats up and removes the dead outermost layers. This cosmetic procedure also stimulates collagen production, which helps to tighten and tone your skin.

What skin issues can laser skin rejuvenation address?

Are you wondering whether this is the right treatment option for you? Dr. Curt Birchall may recommend this if you want to eliminate or even reduce the appearance of:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Sun and liver spots
  • Minor scars
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged pores

What should I expect from this procedure?

This cosmetic procedure is fast and simple and performed right here in our office. Laser skin rejuvenation treatment in Rocky River can be a great way to improve skin just about anywhere on the body or the face. Depending on the size of the treatment area, this procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.

Before directing the laser over the skin we will numb the area to reduce any discomfort. Once your laser treatment is over, we will provide you with after-treatment instructions to make sure you know how to properly care for your skin. Depending on what skin problems you want to treat with laser skin rejuvenation, your recovery period could last anywhere from a week to a few weeks.

Are you looking for a simple way to improve your appearance that doesn't involve surgery? Dr. Curt Birchall of Rocky River Med Spa - skin careThe Fountain Clinic in Rocky River, OH, discusses several treatments you'll want to consider, including laser skin rejuvenation.

Injectable Treatments

Both Botox and dermal fillers are injected into your skin to reduce lines and wrinkles. Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses from reaching the muscles that cause frowning and other expressions, while fillers plump up lines and also restore volume.


Microdermabrasion removes the top layers of the skin with a fine spray of crystals. Once those layers are removed, surface wrinkles and scars will be gone. Microdermabrasion tightens your skin, improves texture and also thickens collagen, the protein that gives skin its elasticity.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation works by heating the layer of collagen under your skin and breaking down the pigment that can cause age spots and broken capillaries. It offers many benefits and can:

  • Make lines, wrinkles and acne scars less noticeable
  • Tighten and firm your skin, which also reduces wrinkles
  • Get rid of dark skin patches, age spots, large pores, spider veins, stretch marks and freckles
  • Reduce inflammation and redness common in rosacea

There's no downtime with laser skin rejuvenation. In fact, you can go back to work after your session at Dr. Birchall's Rocky River office, if you wish. Although your skin may look a little red for a few hours after treatment, you won't experience any uncomfortable side effects. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need approximately three to five sessions to obtain the desired results.
