Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is Skin Rejuvenation?

Skin Rejuvenation and skin revitalization treatments aim to diminish the appearance of skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, skin discolorations, acne scars, facial veins, and rosacea. The procedures are administered over a period of several months, with four to six weeks between each treatment.

At Gastonia Wellness & Long Term Care, Dr. Needell uses both the Icon Laser and the TempSure Envi system to combat these and other signs of aging. With the Icon Laser, the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is used to target skin imperfections by encouraging the generation of collagen and elastin, the skin’s building blocks. With the TempSure Envi, the radiofrequency technology delivers heat to precise points on your skin without damaging the surface.  The result helps to increase cell turnover and add volume to the skin, filling in lines, tightening the skin and restoring more youthful qualities.

What conditions does skin rejuvenation address?

The Icon Laser can address and improve the following skin problems:

  • Sun Damage
  • Dark spots
  • Fine Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Broken blood vessels and facial veins
  • Rosacea
  • Body scars
  • Dull, sagging skin


The TempSure Envi can address and improve the following skin problems:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases
  • Brow furrow
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Sagging skin


Dr. Needell can also treat your hands, neck, back, and chest area with either the Icon Laser or the TempSure Envi depending on your desired goals and his recommendations.

What are the advantages of skin rejuvenation?

Dr. Needell promotes both the Icon Laser and the TempSure Envi as safe and non-invasive ways to achieve your goals for skin health and wellness.  In some cases, results can be seen after each treatment. Overall results should improve progressively over six months as your skin naturally responds to the treatments.

Both laser and radiofrequency treatments give you the most dramatic improvement without surgery, incisions or injections.  The advantage is the confidence gained by having brighter skin, a more youthful appearance and the decrease in skin imperfections.
