Every woman wants to stay young and beautiful forever. There are a variety of methods for rejuvenating the skin of the face, which is most prone to age-related changes. One of the non-surgical methods of combating aging is laser rejuvenation. Consider the features of the procedure, types of laser rejuvenation, indications and contraindications, as well as the effectiveness of therapy.
Benefits of laser skin rejuvenation
Facial skin rejuvenation with a laser, used as a non-surgical and minimally invasive antiaging agent, has several advantages:
- Manipulation is not traumatic to the skin as it is performed punctually and affects the affected areas without touching healthy tissue
- special skin care during the recovery period after therapy is not required
- the result of rejuvenation after a full session is preserved for a long time
- With the help of laser rejuvenation, the synthesis of collagen cells is activated and restored and the skin in front of the eyes is tightened and rejuvenated
- there are practically no side effects
- it is possible to combine laser therapy with other cosmetic procedures
- no special preparation of the skin is required prior to therapy
Features of the procedure
Laser rejuvenation is one of the most effective and least traumatic techniques to counteract age-related changes. Laser beams act on the deep layers of the skin and form microthermal healing zones in which collagen and elastin are actively produced. They are responsible for the elasticity of the skin.
Expression lines, especially around the eyes, are also effectively smoothed out with a laser. The procedure itself is painless and well tolerated. There are no age restrictions for conducting. Laser rejuvenation can be used both at the age of 17 to fight acne and at the age of 40 to smooth out wrinkles. The procedure stimulates the blood circulation and initiates the recovery and regeneration process. This form of therapy is particularly effective in combination with other anti-aging methods.
Variants of skin rejuvenation with laser beams
Such a procedure as laser rejuvenation can be divided into several types that have their own characteristics.
Types of laser rejuvenation include:
- fractional peeling
- Laser resurfacing
- Laser carbon facial rejuvenation
- Laser lifting
Fractional rejuvenationIt is an innovative technique that wakes up "sleeping cells" that die or cease to function over time and allows them to actively recover and work. Cells are awakened by the thermal effect of a laser. At the same time, collagen and elastin are actively producedresponsible for maintaining the youthfulness of the skin.
This type of laser rejuvenation actively combats sagging and sagging, skin pigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, scars and wrinkles.
Fractional skin peeling is divided into ablative and non-ablative methods. In the first case the laser does not penetrate as deeply and microzones are restored, in the second case the penetration of the beam goes deeper, while the surface layers remain healthy and untouched.
Laser renewalone of the modern methods. The laser beam evens out the relief and works with the surface of the skin. This noticeably reduces the appearance of scars, scars and various defects on the skin. The duration of the procedure depends on the area to be treated. On average from 30 minutes to an hour. The recovery period is up to 10 days, during which time antiseptic ointments are applied to the skin. Vigorous physical activity for a month is also not recommended.
Laser carbon facial rejuvenation- the latest technology done with a carbon booster. A special feature of the procedure is the delicacy of the effect, active peeling of dead cells, stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin, the beginning of the recovery and regeneration process, narrowing of the pores. The procedure is performed for different skin types. Benefits include low trauma, no recovery period, a wide range of laser beam exposure, and efficiency.
Laser lifting- This is the cheapest and most common way to combat age-related changes in the skin. In this case, the laser acts punctually, which gives the patient: elastic and even skin, reduction in the number of wrinkles, elimination of the vascular network and pigmentation.
With proper facial care, the results and effectiveness of any type of laser rejuvenation will last up to 4 years.
Results of laser rejuvenation
The laser acts selectively, activating its own resources and forcing the tissue to actively regenerate and rejuvenate. The effectiveness of the full completion of laser rejuvenation will persist for several years. In addition, this manipulation can be carried out in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. After that, no additional maintenance is required. The frequency of the procedure depends on the condition of the skin and is carried out no more than once or twice within seven days. The result is visible after the first session.
What is the result of laser rejuvenation?
- Flat expression lines are smoothed out
- The color, tone and contour of the face are evened out (this is especially important in the post-acne period or as a post-acne therapy)
- Reduction of the pores
- Strengthening the skin structure and formatting its protective barrier
- Smoothing of scars and scars in the postoperative period
Laser facial rejuvenation should not be done during pregnancy, as it can delay the development of the unborn child. Also, it is not recommended to perform procedures with severe inflammatory or pustular processes. Some people think that having a large number of moles on the face is also a contraindication, but it is not. Laser rejuvenation does not affect birthmarks.
Contraindications for laser rejuvenation can also be: the presence of an infectious or viral disease, psoriasis, allergies, tumors, epilepsy and the tendency of the skin to form excessive scarring.
After skin rejuvenation with a laser, redness can be observed for several days, but it will go away on its own. In this case, make-up should not only be applied on the first day, then you can hide all redness with cosmetics.
