Features of the procedure

Laser rejuvenation is one of the most effective and less traumatic techniques used to combat age-related changes. Laser beams act on the deep layers of the skin, forming microthermal healing zones, in which collagen and elastin are actively produced. It is they who are responsible for the elasticity of the skin.

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

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

Types of laser rejuvenation include:

  • fractional peeling
  • laser resurfacing
  • facial rejuvenation with carbon laser
  • laser lifting

Fractional rejuvenationIt is an innovative technique that awakens the "sleeping 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 fights against 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 so deeply and the micro-zones are restored, in the second the penetration of the beam goes deeper, while the surface layers remain healthy and intact.

Rejuvenation process with laser resurfacing

Laser makeoverone of the modern methods. The laser beam evens out the relief and works with the skin surface. Thus, the appearance of scars, scars and various defects on the skin is significantly reduced. 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, antiseptic ointments are applied to the skin all this time. Strenuous physical activity for a month is also not recommended.

Facial rejuvenation with carbon laser- the latest technology, which is performed using a carbon amplifier. A peculiarity of the procedure is the delicacy of the action, active exfoliation of dead cells, stimulation of collagen and elastin production, initiation of the recovery and regeneration process, narrowing of pores. The procedure is done for different skin types. The 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 procedure to combat age-related skin changes.

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

Contraindications

You should not do facelift with a laser during the gestation period, as this can delay the baby's development in the womb. It is also not recommended to carry out procedures for severe inflammatory or pustular processes. Some people think that a large number of moles on the face are also a contraindication, but this is not the case. Laser rejuvenation does not affect moles in any way.

Contraindications to laser rejuvenation can also be: the presence of an infectious or viral disease, psoriasis, allergies, tumors, epilepsy and the tendency of the skin to excessive scarring.

After skin rejuvenation with a laser, redness can be observed for several days, but it disappears on its own. In this case, makeup shouldn't be applied just for the first day, so you can hide all the redness with cosmetics.
