With the assistance of excel V™ and Enlighten3 with PICO Genesis, Dr. Evangeline S. Specht can deliver stunning results, helping to improve the appearance of many different skin conditions, including age spots and uneven skin tone. Laser skin rejuvenation at Women’s Choice Aesthetics in Trumbull, CT, can improve the color and texture of your skin by reversing some of the effects of aging caused by sun exposure, the natural aging process, and lifestyle habits such as smoking. To ensure the best possible results, laser skin rejuvenation at Women's Choice Aesthetics is performed by a medical physician, not an aesthetician. Dr. Specht can assess your candidacy during a consultation.
What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Our laser devices deliver laser light energy at an extremely fast rate - in increments of nanoseconds (one billionth of a second) and picoseconds (one trillionth of a second) - to the deeper layers of the skin. This spurs collagen production, which restores youthful elasticity to the skin. This treatment is often recommended as a less invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. Treatment can be completed on your lunch break. It typically involves four to six sessions spread over the course of several months to achieve the best results.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Candidates for laser skin rejuvenation should be in good overall health. Certain skin textures and darker pigmentations may not respond as well to this treatment, but Dr. Specht will determine your candidacy during a detailed consultation. Common skin conditions that can be treated with laser skin rejuvenation include:
- Significant wrinkles around your eyes and mouth
- Brown age spots
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Leathery-looking skin
- Dark red or purple birthmarks
Depending upon your goals, Dr. Specht may recommend eventually following laser skin rejuvenation with injectable treatments to address wrinkles or add facial volume.
What to Expect during Treatment
Before beginning the treatment, Dr. Specht will place protective eyewear over your eyes. During treatment, you will feel a slight warming sensation on the area of your skin being treated. Most patients find the overall procedure relaxing and therapeutic.
Depending on the extent of treatment and the number of areas being treated, the procedure takes about an hour. Although you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment, you may experience some redness for the first few hours afterward.
To ensure the best possible results, laser skin rejuvenation at Women's Choice Aesthetics is performed by a medical physician, not an aesthetician.
Results can be seen as early as two weeks after treatment. It is vital that you follow your at-home care instructions carefully as directed by your doctor to ensure that you experience a successful recovery and achieve your desired results. In addition, following a good skin care regimen that includes wearing sunscreen and avoiding extensive sun exposure can help you maintain your results much longer.
Risks and Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvention

- Smoother, tighter-looking skin
