Non-ablative lasers are light-based treatments that penetrate the skin without visible wounding the skin surface to treat numerous skin conditions. The handpiece emits numerous microbeams which create narrow deep columns of tissue coagulation that penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis. The laser impulses deliver light in an array of high precision microbeams which produce micro damage on the treated surface. The damage is intentional as it initiates a natural healing process that stimulates the formation of new skin. Each microbeam of the skin damaged with the laser is surrounded with healthy tissue which start intensive multiplication. At this point, new healing processes start to fill in the damaged treatment areas.
Some of the questions commonly asked by our clients.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The aim of laser wrinkle reduction is to damage the surface of the skin intentionally, in a planned and predictable manner. As a result the skin is stimulated to regenerate the planned damage, which eventually results in a new improved structure of the tissue. The microscopic damaged treatment zones are surrounded by healthy tissue which accelerates the formation of new skin with relatively short downtime.
The procedure is designed for both women and men who have experienced decreasing condition of their skin which has mainly been caused by sun exposure. These changes may also include wrinkles, creases, the loss of firmness and uneven pigmentation. Other indications may include acne scars and enlarged pores. The treatment can be performed on any part of the body but the most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, décolletage and the hands where the skin ageing processes are the fastest due to sun damage. This procedure is also ideal for parts of body such as the neck, décolletage, eyes or the lips which are difficult to rejuvenate with other available treatments.
The procedure does not usually require the use of anaesthetic cream. We advise that the area is cooled just before and after the treatment which brings discomfort and pain to minimum.
Then the body’s natural healing processes remove older, damaged tissue and rebuild it with new collagen and elastin which are responsible for the production of new building blocks of normal-looking skin. After the treatment the skin is firm, creases, pores and wrinkles are minimized and the face regains its youthful look.
It is usually not until 7 days before skin heals after the treatment. However, it is too early to expect the final results at this point as the process of skin regeneration normally takes 4 – 6 weeks. Another revitalization treatment which is done at this time helps to stimulate skin for continuous regeneration.
Treatment reviews may be carried out between 2 and 4 weeks following treatment. Reviews will never be performed when there is evidence of swelling, bruising, inflammation or pain. One treatment review only will be performed per treatment and never outside the 4 weeks period following treatment.
Reviews refer to the treatment delivered and include the agreed volumes and doses of any used and paid for product. Additional services or products will be charged accordingly.
