SRA Intense Light Treatment
Skin Rejuvenation Advanced (SRA) for Radiant Skin
Looking for a light treatment that does more for your skin? Then it’s time to introduce yourself to the Skin Rejuvenation Advanced (SRA) Intense Light Treatment for aging and uneven skin. This laser combines light wavelengths and radiofrequency energy to improve the look of skin while boosting long-term collagen production.
How Does the SRA Intense Light Treatment Work?
This innovative technology combines pulsed light and radiofrequency energies to simultaneously break down hyperpigmentation within the skin (like sun damage and acne scarring) while tightening and firming the dermal tissue for immediate benefits. The heat produced from this treatment also triggers the body’s collagen production, leading to long-lasting results.
Am I a Good Candidate for the SRA Intense Light Treatment?
You’re a good candidate for the SRA Intense Light Treatment if you have moderate signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and more. These treatments can be performed on the face, neck, chest & hands.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime after your SRA treatment, although you may experience mild redness and swelling during the first few days after your session.

Sunscreens containing benzophenones
- A mild to moderate sunburned feeling may persist in the treated areas for 2-3 days. Cold compresses may be applied, and you may take Ibuprofen for discomfort. Topical 1% hydrocortisone cream may be applied to decrease any itching or skin irritation.
- Freckles and sun spots will darken over the next few days and gradually fade in 7-14 days. They will appear less pigmented and fade with further treatments. We usually recommend a series of 3 treatments for optimal results.
- Facial veins will be red and may have mild swelling. There may also be some bruising; this will resolve in 7-14 days.
- Mineral makeup such as Colorescience can be applied as long as the skin is not broken. Microdermabrasion or scrubs can be used 7-10 days after your treatment to help with exfoliation if needed.
- Do not use retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids, acne treatments, scrubs, or other irritating products for 24 hours.
- Protect your skin with a sunscreen of at least SPF 30, such as EltaMD Daily every morning, to avoid sun-induced brown skin discoloration.
- To avoid dilation of blood vessels, which decreases the effectiveness of the treatment, avoid hot tubs, hot showers, and exercise for the next 24 hours. Quick, warm showers are recommended.
- If the skin is broken or a blister appears, apply an ointment such as EltaMD Moisturizer or Aquaphor. The area(s) should be kept lubricated to prevent crusting or scabbing. Do not pick the site(s) or expose it to sunlight.
- Use skincare products free from alcohol, dye, and perfumes for a few days post-treatment.
- If there are any signs of infection, such as redness, tenderness, or pus, please contact the office.
- Do not rub, scratch, or pick at the treated area while red discoloration is present.
- Your at-home skin care regimen between treatments is as essential as the treatment to reach optimal results.
- If you have questions about your treatment, please call us immediately at 218-302-1000. Note we are not open on weekends; if you have a medical concern on the weekend, please visit urgent care. Call us the following Monday so we can assist you.
