Noninvasive rejuvenation of photodamaged skin using serial, full-face intense pulsed light treatments.
BACKGROUND Photodamaged skin is characterized not only by rhytides, but also by epidermal and dermal atrophy, rough skin texture, irregular pigmentation, telangiectasias, laxity, and enlarged pores. There is growing interest in the development of noninvasive methods to treat photodamaged skin. Skin photorejuvenation is the visible improvement of photodamaged skin using a laser or other light source. A noncoherent, broadband, pulsed light source is effective in the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions of the skin. This study evaluates the role of intense pulsed light in the rejuvenation of photo aged skin.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate and quantify the degree of visible improvement in photodamaged skin following a series of full-face, intense pulsed light treatments.
METHODS Forty-nine subjects with varying degrees of photo-damage were treated with a series of four or more full-face treatments at 3-week intervals using a nonablative, nonlaser intense pulsed visible light source. Fluences varied from 30 to 50 J/cm2. Subject evaluation and skin biopsies were used to assess treatment results.
RESULTS All aspects of photodamage including wrinkling, skin coarseness, irregular pigmentation, pore size, and telangiectasias showed visible improvement in more than 90% of subjects with minimal downtime and no scarring. Eighty-eight percent of subjects were satisfied with the overall results of their treatments.
CONCLUSION Treatment of photodamaged facial skin using a series of full-face treatments with intense pulsed light is a new and effective noninvasive method of skin rejuvenation with minimal risk and no patient downtime.

Soft, glowing skin is the envy of every woman. The hazards of aging, sun exposure, environmental factors, and the stresses of life all leave their marks on the skin. If your skin is dull and damaged, the revolutionary Halo™ hybrid fractional laser can restore a healthy, luminous glow. Creator of the critically acclaimed FotoFacial®, Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., is excited to share the incredible results of this new treatment with each of his patients.
What Sets Halo™ Apart From Other Lasers?
Laser treatments for the skin typically fall into one of two categories: ablative or non-ablative.
Ablative lasers work by damaging the skin with an intense wavelength of light energy. The outer layers of damaged, aged skin are vaporized and removed, producing noticeably softer, smoother, and healthier skin. However, ablative laser treatments are often painful and followed by a week or so of downtime for healing and recovery.
Non-ablative lasers leave the surface skin intact while heating and coagulating the lower layers of dermal tissue. This elicits a collagen-building response that renews the skin from the inside out. A non-ablative laser treatment is more comfortable and has a faster healing time than an ablative treatment, but several treatments are often necessary before the results are noticeable.
The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser is the first of its kind. Using a combination of both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, Halo™ can produce the consistent, profound results of an ablative treatment with the minimal downtime of a non-ablative treatment. Controlled targeting of energy wavelengths penetrates and heats the skin to improve its texture and vibrancy and to correct discoloration, fine lines, and enlarged pores. Patients can finally achieve the noticeable results they desire with just one laser treatment and only a few days of peeling.
Your Halo™ Experience
Your Halo™ laser treatment experience will be designed specifically for your needs. Dr. Bitter, who is highly experienced in light-based skin rejuvenation treatments and anti-aging treatments, may recommend combining Halo™ treatment with other treatments to give you the most desirable results. For example, combining Halo™ with intense pulsed light treatments can further renew the skin and yield more youthful results. After your treatment, your skin will appear luminous and vibrant, and it will continue to improve in appearance and texture over the following months. Even after just one Halo™ treatment, skin renewal can last for years.
To rejuvenate your skin using advanced laser technology, schedule your treatment with the Halo™ hybrid fractional laser by tton®on. Our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., is passionate about this treatment and about helping his patients achieve their desired results. With Halo™ laser treatments, Dr. Bitter can revitalize your skin and restore a youthful and vibrant complexion.

When most people think about facial aging, wrinkles typically come to mind first. The next is usually sagging skin. However, the actual shape of the face is a critical piece of the puzzle. Face shape becomes increasingly less defined as aging occurs. Board-certified dermatologist and advanced anti-aging expert Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., uses the revolutionary non-surgical Y LIFT® procedure to counteract the effects of aging and produce an instantly youthful lift.

Youthful Facial Definition
Youthful faces have a more defined “Y” shape than older faces. The arms of the Y-shape are the eyes and cheekbones, and the chin forms the base. However, as volume loss and skin sagging occur, the arms of the Y slowly widen and collapse. This loss of facial definition is a significant contributor to the perception of aging.
Structural Volumizing With the Y LIFT®
The Y LIFT® addresses the loss of facial definition through structural volumizing. First, Dr. Bitter inserts a specialized titanium instrument beneath the skin. He carefully maneuvers this instrument through the facial regions, providing an immediate lift to the internal muscles, fascia, and fat layer beneath the skin. He then uses hyaluronic acid fillers to hold the tissues in their lifted position. These two steps provide the structural volumizing needed to fill out or enhance the structural support tissues. Finally, Dr. Bitter removes the titanium tube from the treatment site, and the hyaluronic acid remains in place to keep the tissues elevated.
Why Choose the Y LIFT®?
Dr. Bitter is passionate about providing his patients with the best treatment experience and the most effective anti-aging methods. His decision to offer the Y LIFT® procedure at his practice is based on its many benefits. The Y LIFT® is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no incisions and no anesthesia. Most patients need little or no downtime from their normal activities (with the exception of strenuous exercise). In just 30 minutes, the Y LIFT® produces instantly noticeable results, and best of all, these results last from one to two years. The results of the Y LIFT® have been called miraculous. Not only does the Y LIFT® rejuvenate the facial tissues, but it also sculpts the facial contours to highlight the uniquely attractive characteristics of the individual’s face. Dr. Bitter is excited to offer theY LIFT® procedure to individuals of all ages who desire youthful facial contours.
World-renown board-certified dermatologist Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., is the creator and pioneer of the FotoFacial® treatment, which uses intense pulsed light to revitalize the skin and reverse signs of aging. The Y LIFT® is the newest procedure to be performed at Dr. Bitter’s practice and has already attracted great interest. Dr. Bitter has been trained as a certified Y LIFT® provider by the creator of the Y LIFT® himself, Dr. Yan Trokel. You can request your personal consultation for the Y LIFT® procedure with Dr. Bitter todayonline or by phone at (408) 358-5757.
