What Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation at the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center uses gentle, non-ablative fractional lasers to target only the dermis and leave the epidermis (outer skin layer) intact. These light-based treatments stimulate the production of collagen and tighten underlying skin. Most patients require a series of treatments for optimal results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Women and men who want to reduce the appearance of multiple signs of aging, as well as repair damage to the skin, make excellent candidates for laser skin rejuvenation. The treatment is ideal for addressing any of the following:
- fine lines
- acne scars
- sun damage
What Can You Expect Following Your Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment in Grand Rapids?
Because laser skin rejuvenation is non-ablative, there is no healing time required after a treatment session. There will be some redness, so you may want to take a little "social down time," but that's entirely up to you! You can be as active as you'd like.
It is important to remember to continue to apply sunscreen when going outdoors in order to ensure optimal results and ongoing skin health.
In the weeks following your laser skin rejuvenation treatment, your existing collagen will be "remodeled," which means it will even out for a smoother look. Key cells will also begin to produce new collagen, increasing the potent protein's presence in your skin. Results will continue to improve over time, after which your skin will continue to age as it normally would.
Laser skin rejuvenation can be repeated in order to preserve a more youthful look without surgery or invasive devices!

What Are the Complements and Alternatives to Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation delivers optimal results for many of our Grand Rapids area patients, while others choose ablative laser skin resurfacing to achieve the results they desire. Unlike non-ablative treatments, ablative devices actually create small "wounds" in the skin by removing cells from the outermost layers to create tiny channels that kick-start natural healing processes.
Apart from lasers, intense pulsed light (IPL) can also be used to stimulate collagen remodeling and production, as well as to reduce the appearance of rosacea-related redness and visible capillaries. Like laser skin rejuvenation, intense pulsed light in non-ablative.
The Nordlys® Ellipse blends specific wavelengths of light with laser energy for a hybrid approach that can treat a wide range of conditions, from wrinkles to birthmarks to warts. It can also be used for hair removal.
