Beautiful and healthy skin markers are known - smooth, smooth, firm, with natural healthy light and color - fade and wear every year. They are replaced by dryness, dullness, wrinkles. . . This manifestation is accompanied by enlarged pores and vascular network, age spots appear. . . Fortunately, today all aesthetic problems that are considered the main signs of aging can be solved quickly and comprehensively - in this laser skin rejuvenation will help.
Laser facial skin rejuvenation: focus on technology
Laser facial skin rejuvenation - re-exfoliating or exfoliating - may be the most optimal among the options for solving the problem of "in one motion". Indeed, with the advent of new models of laser devices, all other methods of treating the symptoms of aging and similar defects found in cosmetology have declined into the background. Lasers in cosmetology are primarily multidisciplinary platforms. Thanks to this quality, cosmetologists have the opportunity to perform various treatments during one procedure. New devices for fractional surface lasers provide long-term results, are relatively non-aggressive, and can affect almost any part of the body (not just the face). Most importantly, a fractional laser surface protection machine can be used to rejuvenate the skin from any phototype. Therefore, the solution of aesthetic problems with the help of lasers on dark, very dark or brown skin has become possible recently. In addition, several types of laser skin rejuvenation are now available.
Laser facial skin rejuvenation: treatment options
The latest generation of devices make it possible to perform various types of anti-aging procedures such as skin rejuvenation, superficial laser skin or deep lasers appearing on the face and the whole body. They all work according to the following principle: under the influence of laser pulses on the skin (epidermis and outer layer of the dermis), the process of phototrolysis occurs - old cells are destroyed until new and young ones replace them in the regeneration process. As a result, after recovery, fresh skin (in every sense) skin regenerates on the face or in other treatment areas.
In the rejuvenation of laser fracture skin, rays allow the effect of dosing on micro-areas on "old" and problem skin, "evaporates" dead cells, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin proteins, and even damages pathogenic microflora. After treatment, the natural stimulation of the tissue self-healing process begins: young and healthy tissues are formed, skin color and relief are evened.
Indications for laser fracture skin rejuvenation: clear signs of aging and photosynthesis, wrinkles, uneven skin texture; small scars, scars (including after acne).
Another procedure should be noted separately, which is included in the range of capabilities of the latest device model - carbon laser exfoliation. This technology combines the action of laser beam and light (because additional rejuvenation is given). The nuance of this procedure is a special carbon booster, gel mask, which contains carbon dioxide nanoparticles. Nanogels are called carbonic (translated as "carbon"). The cosmetic effect of nanogel is based on its ability to penetrate deep into the skin, bind to epidermal cells, and even attract residues of sebum, dust, and dirt. Carbon nanogels should also prepare the skin for laser radiation, resulting in even exfoliation of keratinized epidermal cells. At the same level, the inflammatory process is flattened. Carbon laser exfoliation is ideal for treating acne, normalizing skin lipid metabolism (seboregulation).
Indications for carbon laser exfoliation: problem skin with inflamed rashes, acne, blackheads, increased oil, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, early signs of aging and photosynthesis, age spots.
As a rule, with laser skin rejuvenation, the aesthetic effect is achieved with minimal discomfort: if the re-surface is performed superficially, coincidence does not even require initial anesthesia. There are no traces / scars, which is very important when applying aesthetic defects to the face. With fractional rejuvenation, selective destruction of abnormal areas makes it possible to remove cosmetic defects to a certain depth without injuring nearby tissues. The surrounding tissue is not hot and, thus, is not damaged.
Laser skin rejuvenation: when the indications are appropriate
Sometimes laser skin rejuvenation and removal is not the only job of a cosmetologist. However, laser skin rejuvenation, first of all, is an integrated approach: combating the signs of withering and at the same time treating dermatological problems. Due to new technologies that allow you to control the strength and duration of the laser pulse, cosmetologists can select the re-surface depth for each type of skin photo and adjust the laser beam trajectory to complete certain, more specific tasks. Complete set of devices (replaceable nozzle applicator), wide pulse duration, ability to adjust ray beam measurement, energy density and pulse penetration depth provide various therapeutic effects at high speed of procedure. Therefore, after deciding on laser skin rejuvenation, you can expect a complex effect. In particular, in many salons it is possible to perform not only laser skin rejuvenation (re-surface, tightening), but also:
- cures or softens the journey of acne and after acne,
- remove "wine stains",
- eliminates visible rosacea symptoms and clinical manifestations of rosacea,
- delete various age spots,
- reduces the severity of cellulite,
- reduce body fat,
- removes scars and scars,
- remove or correct stretch marks,
- remove the tattoo.
Wrinkles - superficial and imitation, skin softness, age spots, telangiectasias, spider veins, red and blue spider webs, hemangiomas and telangiectasias, seborrheic keratosis, rosacea and rosacea, benign neoplasms, lentigo nevi), small blue veins - laser beams can overcome almost all skin blemishes! Some lasers are also used for nail therapy - to strengthen the structure of the nail plate and increase its growth. With the help of lasers, cosmetologists can freeze vessels of high precision of various types and diameters, however, unfortunately, this method does not work for varicose veins. It usually takes a few sessions to reach the final result.
Contraindications to laser facial rejuvenation procedures are also quite broad. These are malignant and pre-malignant diseases, hematological diseases, severe chronic diseases, infections and exacerbations of dermatological diseases, damage to the affected treatment area, as well as pregnancy and lactation.
Laser skin rejuvenation: features and disadvantages
Of course, laser skin rejuvenation is not a 100% ideal procedure: much of the result depends on the skills and experience of the cosmetologist (for this reason, you should approach the choice as carefully as possible). Accurate, predictable effect, safe to focus on problems, computer control over the depth of impact - guarantee of significant and lasting therapeutic effect, as well as a minimum recovery period. By using sufficient force and adjusting wavelengths, experienced beauticians achieve predictable results, which significantly reduces the likelihood of side effects.
No less careful than cosmetics and clinics, you should choose a time for laser skin rejuvenation: for example on a cloudy autumn day. The risk of side effects in the form of hyperpigmentation is much lower. In addition, in winter, sweating decreases, and this, in turn, reduces the risk of developing inflammatory reactions.
Important to note: not all lasers used for facial or body skin rejuvenation are equally effective: some types of devices do not have high selectivity. For this reason, for example, selective remodeling or freezing of blood vessels is not possible without trauma to the surrounding tissues, when part of the energy is projected onto it in the form of heat and burning. It is also difficult to achieve an effective effect on deep vessels. Such complications will not arise if the latest model device is used, operating at the optimum wavelength for selective exposure. They provide a combination of parameters necessary for effective skin rejuvenation: force, wavelength, pulse duration, beam diameter, color spectrum.
After laser skin rejuvenation, recovery time is required, which varies depending on the depth of the surface (peeling). Therefore, after deciding on this procedure, it is better to take a vacation to "sit" in the four walls for some time.
One of the unpleasant disadvantages is the short duration of results after treatment after acne: scars return after a few years - the so-called skin memory is triggered, so the gold standard for solving this problem today is still a more invasive procedure - puncture(excision).
To avoid complications and get the expected results, you need to take a constructive approach to the task of laser skin rejuvenation - to undergo diagnostics, to identify the cause of the formation of defects, choose home care cosmetics, including for the recovery period after the procedure. Regarding the possibility of complications and side effects, they are mainly related to inadequate treatment after laser rejuvenation (reappear or peeling).
Side effects and complications
After fractional laser rejuvenation, a large area of skin is damaged to a sufficient depth. Naturally, after the procedure, persistent edema is observed (lasting for several days), inflammation, bleeding. Deep skin lesions are fraught with the development of infection, problems with healing, therefore, it requires careful attention: doctors carefully choose medical cosmetics for the recovery period, explain the application scheme and monitor the entire recovery time carefully.
