Laser facial rejuvenation: description of the procedure

laser rejuvenation of facial skin

The laser beam has become a real breakthrough in the field of cosmetology. In 75% of cases of dealing with skin defects, he was able to replace injections, surgery.

Laser treatments not only successfully remove scars and blemishes, but also remove the signs of aging.

What is this

Laser rejuvenation is performed using a special device.

The beam moves along the body in a special "handle". The impulses penetrate the skin layers to a depth of 1 mm. Under the influence of high frequencies and heating, the old cells are destroyed. Intact tissues begin to react with the release of increased amounts of elastin and collagen, which repair the damaged dermis. Renewed skin becomes thicker, more elastic. The optimal temperature is chosen for each area of ​​the skin to avoid burns.

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

As a result of the correct procedure the effects are marked:

  • visible smoothing of deep wrinkles;
  • small facial wrinkles disappear;
  • discoloration of hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, post-acne, vascular network and scarring;
  • narrowing of enlarged pores;
  • leveling the surface of the dermis;
  • the appearance of a healthy complexion by stimulating blood circulation;
  • tighten the contours of the face and body.

Noticeable improvements are visible after the first session. To consolidate successful rejuvenation allows a course of 5 treatments on the problem area.

Types of laser rejuvenation

There are several variants of this procedure. Everyone has their own distinctive features. Choosing a variety for an individual problem will make the solution as productive as possible.

  • By penetrating the upper layers of the skin.Works best with small punctate defects. A single surface beam is applied. Only the damaged area is exposed, healthy skin is not affected. The result is achieved quickly and lasts a long time. Works well on expression lines.
  • No damage to the surface of the skin.Perfectly manifested with deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sagging contours. A large area of ​​skin is treated at once (for example, the whole face). The longest beams are used. Only the hidden layers of the dermis are affected, the surface remains intact. The heat stimulates the natural metabolic processes in the cells. A pleasant side effect is the elimination of post-acne, wide pores.
  • Biorevitalization.Pulses are given for a short time with multiple repetitions. Thus, the rays painlessly break down dead cells and actively stimulate collagen production. Special cosmetics (usually hyaluronic acid) are used, which the laser delivers deep into the skin. The method is used in the fight against deep wrinkles, persistent lines of expression. It has a cumulative effect. Biorevitalization is one of the best alternatives to injections.
  • Resurfacing.The erbium or sapphire laser gently removes the upper layers of the old epidermis. Younger tissues remain, which makes the skin look tighter, more even, fine wrinkles become invisible.
  • 4D rejuvenation.Fastest view. A lasting visible result appears after the first procedure. 4 types of beams are used (FRAC3, SmothLiftin, SupErficial, PIANO). Such a combination improves deep processes, restores the elasticity and freshness of the skin, copes with wrinkles of different sizes.
