Laser facial rejuvenation: a description of the procedure

laser facial skin rejuvenation

Laser treatment not only successfully removes scars and blemishes, but also removes the signs of aging.

Is this

Laser rejuvenation is done using special tools.

Rays move along the body with a special "handle". Impulses penetrate the skin layer to a depth of 1 mm. Under the influence of high frequency and heating, old cells are destroyed. Whole tissue begins to respond with the release of increased amounts of elastin and collagen, which repairs the damaged dermis. Renewed skin becomes denser, more elastic. The optimum temperature is selected for each skin area to prevent burns.

In this case, the treatment is performed not only on the face, but also other parts of the body. Thighs, abdomen, chest, forearms, hands are no less age-related wear and tear.

The result of the correct procedure, the effect is marked:

  • smoothes deep wrinkles;
  • small facial wrinkles disappear;

  • enlarged pore narrowing;
  • flatten the surface of the dermis;
  • healthy skin appearance by stimulating blood circulation;

The longest beam used. Only the hidden layer of the dermis is affected, the surface remains intact. Heat drives the natural metabolic processes in cells. A pleasant side effect is the removal of acne after acne, wide pores.
  • Biorevitalization.The pulse is given for a short time with various repetitions. Thus, rays break down dead cells painlessly and actively stimulate collagen production. Special cosmetics (usually hyaluronic acid) are used, which the laser delivers into the skin. This method is used in the fight against deep wrinkles, continuous lines of expression. Has a cumulative effect. Biorevitalization is one of the best alternatives to injections.
  • Re-surface. Erbium or Sapphire lasers gently remove the top layer of worn epidermis. Younger tissues remain, which makes the skin appear firmer, more even, fine wrinkles become invisible.
