Features of the procedure

Laser rejuvenation is one of the most effective and least traumatic techniques used to combat age-related changes. The laser beams work on the deep layers of the skin, forming microthermal healing zones, in which collagen and elastin are actively produced. They are the ones responsible for the elasticity of the skin.

Expression lines, especially around the eyes, are also effectively smoothed with a laser. The procedure itself is painless and well tolerated. There is no age limit to lead. Laser rejuvenation can be used both at age 17 to fight acne and at age 40 to smooth wrinkles. As a result of the procedure, the blood supply is stimulated, the process of recovery and regeneration is initiated. This type of therapy is particularly effective in combination with other types of antiaging procedures.

Such a procedure as laser rejuvenation can be divided into several types, which have their own characteristics.

Types of laser rejuvenation include:

  • fractional peel
  • laser resurfacing
  • Carbon laser facial rejuvenation
  • laser lifting

Fractional rejuvenationIs an innovative technique that awakens "sleeper cells" that die or stop functioning over time, and makes them recover and actively work. The cells are awakened by the thermal effect of a laser. At the same time, there is an active production of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for maintaining the youthfulness of the skin.

This type of laser rejuvenation actively combats sagging and sagging, skin pigmentation, large pores, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles.

Fractional skin peel is divided into ablative and non-ablative methods. In the first case, the laser penetrates less deeply and the microzones are restored, in the second, the penetration of the beam is deeper, while the superficial layers remain healthy and intact.

Rejuvenation process with laser resurfacing

Laser resurfacingone of the modern methods. The laser beam evens out the relief and works with the surface of the skin. Thus, the appearance of scars, scars and various blemishes on the skin is significantly reduced. The duration of the procedure depends on the area to be treated. On average, 30 minutes to an hour. The recovery period can be up to 10 days, antiseptic ointments are applied to the skin during this time. Intense physical activity for a month is also not recommended.

Carbon laser facial rejuvenation- the latest technology, which is carried out using a carbon amplifier. A peculiarity of the procedure is the delicacy of the action, the active exfoliation of dead cells, the stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin, initiating the process of recovery and regeneration, narrowing the pores. The procedure is performed for different types of skin. The advantages include low trauma, no recovery period, a wide range of laser beam exposure, and efficiency.

Laser lifting- This is the most affordable and common procedure for combating age-related skin changes. In this case, the laser acts punctually, so that the patient receives: elastic and uniform skin, a decrease in the number of wrinkles, elimination of the vascular network and pigmentation.

With proper facial skin care, the result and effectiveness of each type of laser rejuvenation will last up to 4 years.

The effectiveness of completing the full course of laser rejuvenation remains for several years. In addition, this manipulation can be carried out in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. No additional care is required thereafter. The frequency of the procedure depends on the condition of the skin and is performed no more than once or twice within seven days. The result is visible from the first session.
