Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Non intrusive skin rejuvenation treatments are in high demand and account for up to 40% of the treatments administered in medaesthetic clinics around the world. Laser skin rejuvenation has proven extremely efficient and they possess great potential for achieving remarkable results for many patients.
It is a small wonder that all leading cosmetic equipment manufacturers continue to attribute high importance to developing and improving the laser skin rejuvenation capabilities they offer medaesthetic professionals via the equipment they develop and produce.
What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Essentially laser skin rejuvenation is any non intrusive medaesthetic procedure conducted through the use of laser technology and designed to improve the appearance of a patients skin. The most popular areas treated this way are the ones around the facial area.
The appearance of our skin has great affect on our overall looks and consequently on our self esteem and confidence. This is why such treatments come under great demand and cosmetic equipment manufacturers place such high importance on developing ever more efficient machines in this field.
Different Types of Skin Rejuvenation
In order to better understand the role of laser skin rejuvenation it helps to learn a little about the range of skin rejuvenation treatments currently being conducted.
The skin rejuvenation treatments available in medaesthetic clinics today involve the use of several technologies. Among these the main ones are laser and IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and involve the projection of some type of light onto the area of skin treated, they are therefore commonly referred to as Photo rejuvenation . Another type of skin rejuvenation procedure is carried out using IR (infra red) radiation.
Photo rejuvenation is aimed at ridding the skin of different types of blemishes as well as making it tighter and thus less wrinkled and younger looking.
IR skin rejuvenation works by heating underlying skin layers which works to accelerate collagen production. The extra collagen has an almost miraculous beneficial effect on skin complexion.
Many cosmetic equipment manufacturers conduct independent research into laser skin rejuvenation (as well as into skin rejuvenation in general) in order to earn an advantage over their competitors. Such research is also done in many academic institutions, privately owned research facilities and even governmental medical institutions.
The Benefits of Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The scope of possible benefits which may be achieved through laser skin rejuvenation is impressive. These types of treatments are used in removal of many types of skin blemishes such as ones caused by rosacea, over exposure to the sun, pigmented lesions, vascular lesions and more.
Cosmetic equipment manufacturers have succeeded in providing medaesthetic clinics' staff with the ability to target specific chromophores in the skin through the process of selective photothermolysis.
Laser skin rejuvenation is considered very safe and easy to endure (patients can return to normal activity directly after a treatment session). The results achieved are apparent within a number of days (at the most). This is why such treatments come under great demand and their popularity is ever growing.
The Principals of Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation works by directing a potent dose of laser light energy very preciselytowards problematic skin tissue. This energy causes heat to be generated in a contained manner at a very specific area. This causes the breakdown of the problematic tissues into materials which can be absorbed and discarded through the blood stream.
Different skin chromophores are targeted in the treating of different types of blemishes. For example, Hemoglobin chromophores are relevant to the elimination of vascular lesions while melanin chromophores are the ones targeted for eliminating pigmented lesions.
Laser skin rejuvenation may be used for eliminating skin lesions from the face, chest, arms, legs and hands. Even tattoo removal is conducted using laser technology.
In the past medaesthetic laser equipment was manufactured as independent machinery, today many cosmetic equipment manufactures choose to incorporate laser capabilities along with other technologies such as IPL, IR, RF and DPC into single machines.
