How Laser Skin Rejuvenation Works

When skin experiences controlled injuries via laser skin rejuvenation or microneedling, it heals naturally and to a better state than pre-treatment. Laser energy on the skin is based on “selective photothermolysis,” which means that different wavelengths target different skin chromosomes. Ready for a lesson? Pencils up. The three key targets in the skin are hemoglobin, water, and melanin.

RefinedMD Has 20+ Lasers!

The range of lasers at RefinedMD lets us target any of skin at various wavelengths to achieve the best possible outcome. Some dermatology offices have only a few lasers, which means they can’t target all combinations or personalize treatment. All lasers that can target skin tissues will create some results, but the real science and artistry of optimal skin improvement is having the right laser for the skin.

Popular Choices

In addition to IPL, Genesis Plus, Excel V, Cutera, and Qx Max, the following technologies are some of our most popular:

Clear + Brilliant

  • How it works: Laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin.
  • Treats: Enlarged pores, melasma, brown spots, rough texture, fine lines,  overall dull appearance.
  • Good for: Pre-juvenation to prevent signs of aging and for treating early signs of aging.

Broadband Light (BBL) Therapy

  • How it works: This more intense type of IPL delivers light energy that penetrates both the skin’s outer and deeper layers without harming the surface.
  • Treats: Redness, brown spots, fine lines, acne.
  • Good for: All types of skin, even darker skin tones.


  • How it works: This hybrid fractional laser has ablative and non-ablative options that impact tiny columns of the skin at variable depths to generate new skin cells and increase collagen production.
  • Treats: Sun damage, large pores, discoloration, scars, fine lines.
  • Good for: People who can spare a few days of downtime for impressive results.

LaseMD Ultra

  • How it works: This non-ablative fractional laser uses columns of heat to stimulate collagen growth within the skin without harming the surface.
  • Treats: Sun damage, fine lines, melasma, rosacea, laxity, hair loss
  • Good for: All skin types.

Which Laser Treatment Is Best for My Skin?

Because we have 20+ choices that include the latest laser technologies, it may seem overwhelming to know which one to choose. It’s best to come to your consultation with your goals in mind, not specific lasers. Our advanced technology can address a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Brown spots
  • Redness
  • Wrinkles
  • Thinning
  • Laxity
  • Rough texture
  • Scarring

Most lasers can take care of multiple concerns. Sometimes we combine laser treatments in the same appointment to give you more comprehensive results than possible with a single option. Learn more in this blog post.

Complementary Treatments That Pair Nicely With Laser Skin Treatments

In addition to laser treatments, microneedling is a fast, easy, and affordable way to encourage the skin to produce more collagen. I think we can all admit that baby skin is the pinnacle of healthy skin. Why? Because it’s brand-spanking-new. The idea behind laser skin rejuvenation is that damaged layers of skin are removed to create and reveal new layers of skin reminiscent of baby skin. The phrase softer than a baby’s bottom, but on our face? Yes, please.

Microneedling isn’t the only addition or alternative to laser therapy. There’s also high intensity focused ultrasound, strong light-based treatments to control inflammation and aging, and radiofrequency (we’re not talking Walkie Talkies here). For a successful treatment, the skin type and issues need to be matched with the lasers and complementary procedures.
