Skin Lesions Sun & Damage Treatment

The Aurora laser is one of the newer developments in skin rejuvenation technology. Unlike other laser and light-based technology, which use only one energy source, the Aurora combines light and radiofrequency energies to get superior results with lower overall energy output. This provides the highest level of safety and comfort to the patient.

The combined Bi-Polar Radio Frequency energies precisely target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots and age spots with intense pulses of light.  The Aurora laser system provides a comprehensive solution for the treatment of a full array of vascular lesions and superficial pigmented lesions as well as for hair removal from any part of the face or body.

Utilizing proven technology that combines light, electrical energy and cooling features, Aurora can help you achieve the long-lasting results you truly want: smoother, clearer skin.

Conditions treated

Vascular lesions such as spider veins and redness from rosacea are lightened and gradually fade after treatment with the Aurora laser.  Even large areas of skin with a number of lesions can be quickly and effectively treated in a single session.  Aurora precisely targets blood vessels or pigmented lesions, gently and quickly removing the unwanted spots without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.

Brown spots, which are imperfections caused by overproduction of pigment due to sun damage and aging; red blotchiness that develops from spider veins or rosacea; and rough skin texture will improve over a series of sessions.  Each Aurora treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. These sessions are repeated every month for a total of three to five treatments.

Telangiectasias are small, widened blood vessels on the skin. They are usually harmless, but may be associated with several diseases.  Telangiectasias may develop anywhere within the body but can be easily seen in the skin, mucous membranes and whites of the eyes. Usually, they do not cause symptoms. However, some telangiectasias bleed and cause significant problems.  Some causes of telangiectasias include alcohol use, aging, genetics, pregnancy, sun exposure and more.  Aurora targets these blood vessels and reduces their appearance, while leaving the surrounding areas of the skin untouched.

The sun has a profound effect after years of exposure to the skin, causing premature skin aging, skin cancer and numerous other skin disorders. Many skin changes that were commonly believed to be due to aging, such as easy bruising, are actually a result of prolonged exposure to the sun. Skin texture changes caused by UV exposure include thick skin with coarse wrinkles, thinning of the skin causing fine wrinkles, easy bruising and skin tearing, particularly on the forearms and back of the hands.  Moles are also usually seen in sun-exposed areas. Although it is normal to acquire new moles from childhood through young adulthood, their formation is generally stimulated by the sun. All of these sun-related skin conditions can be corrected or improved by treatment with the Aurora laser.

The Aurora laser procedure

Treatment with the Aurora laser is very safe for the skin and there is virtually no down time. There are many features included in the Aurora technology that make it unparalleled for skin safety, without compromising effectiveness for treatment. There are no long term health hazards from light or electric energies used in the Aurora.

The sensation caused by Aurora is often described as “hot pinch” feeling. The sensation only lasts for fraction of a second, and you may feel warmth or a tingling sensation for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without topical anesthetic, but individuals who are more sensitive may prefer to have the skin numbed before treatment.

Aurora laser results

Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The improvement in pigmented and vascular irregularities is often visible by the time you return for your next treatment a month later. Brown spots temporarily appear darker before they lighten.

Anyone who wants to improve the signs of sun damage and aging in the skin, such as pigmented and vascular irregularities, uneven or rough skin texture may be a good candidate for this procedure. Skin rejuvenation is most commonly performed on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms. Discuss treatment with the Aurora laser with your doctor to find out if this procedure is right for you.
