The skin is at constant risk for damage. Sun exposure, harmful toxins, and unhealthy lifestyle choices can all affect its quality. With age, the skin gradually decreases its production of collagen, a vital structural protein that improves skin firmness and elasticity. While sunscreen use and a daily regimen of skincare products can go a long way towards slowing the effects of aging and environmental damage, they tend to lose their effectiveness over time, resulting in wrinkles, age spots, sunspots, and sagging skin.
Fortunately, with advancements in cosmetic technology, solutions exist to minimize signs of aging without invasive surgical procedures. Laser treatments can rejuvenate and restore a youthful complexion with little or no downtime involved. Peninsula Glow Medical Spa provides customized skin rejuvenation treatments for residents of Monterey, CA, and surrounding communities with several laser options on hand.

Laser skin rejuvenation is an excellent treatment for men and women of any skin type or tone. Depending on which laser is used, laser skin rejuvenation can help patients seeking to address the following concerns:
In short, laser skin rejuvenation is an in-office treatment that involves heating the lower layers of skin to cause minor injuries, which initiates the body’s natural healing process, building collagen. As the skin heals and rejuvenates, tone and texture improve, pigmentation fades, and fine lines diminish. The lasers used at Peninsula Glow Medical Spa were created by Cynosure, a leading manufacturer of energy-based aesthetic technologies. We offer the following three laser skin treatments:
The RevLite SI is a multi-wavelength laser system that provides powerful non-ablative skin resurfacing. The RevLite SI includes two handpieces that produce different laser wavelengths, 1064 nanometers (nm) and 532nm, to reduce acne scars and wrinkles, treat hyperpigmentation and remove tattoos. With this versatility, the RevLite SI allows for the precise removal of small pigmented skin imperfections comfortably and efficiently. Two to three treatment sessions with the RevLite SI are typically needed to achieve optimal results. No downtime is required after the treatment and you are free to go about your day as usual.
The Elite iQ is a powerful laser that can effectively treat cosmetic concerns ranging from hair removal to unsightly facial and leg veins, sunspots, age spots, and wrinkles. In addition, the Elite iQ features the Skintel Melanin Reader, which is the first FDA-approved device for measuring melanin content. With this technology, our practitioners can confidently gauge the amount of melanin in your skin and specially tailor the laser parameters based on your ethnicity and skin type. This ensures Elite iQ laser treatment is safe and effective for all skin tones.
Potenza is a unique skin rejuvenating procedure that combines the revitalizing effects of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. The device is the first to combine multiple radio frequency modes, allowing for customizability and versatility. The treatment effectively tightens the skin and stimulates collagen growth to create a fresh and renewed appearance. Results may be noticeable after just one day.
Our nurse practitioner will review your cosmetic concerns during an initial consultation and decide which rejuvenating laser would best suit your needs. With knowledge and experience, our treatment providers will ensure you receive the proper customized care for your skin type and goals.
Healthy skin is essential for a healthy appearance. Unfortunately, your skin faces daily obstacles that affect its vitality — everything from the natural aging process to sun exposure, to damaging toxins lingering in the air, to harmful lifestyle habits that affect the way your skin appears. With advancements in aesthetic technology, it is now possible to refresh and rejuvenate your complexion without a surgical procedure.
