The laser resurfacing or rejuvenation is a remarkable technique. It works by an intense stimulation of the skin which in turn modifies the texture fading age marks. Of the many rejuvenation methods that exist today, laser is known as the most efficient method in improving aging skin.
The power and strength of LFD changes throughout the treatment period as it is programmed accordingly to your skin.
2 main effects of the laser treatment:
- First, the innovative system of Split Fraxel Gently renews the epidermis making it smoother. The laser will only work on the parts of the skin where it is needed enabling less down time and a high speed tissue regeneration.
- Secondly, in response to a deep thermal stimulation, the collagen is renewed. This new collagen will fill the hollow of wrinkles and fine lines. Heat also modifies the functioning of the sebaceous glands. The renewed epidermis of the skin offers spectacular and natural results. The skin is toned and younger looking just after 3 to 5 sessions spaced out every 15 days to one month.
The result is a complete skin regeneration: less wrinkles, an overall smoother and toner look.
This treatment is recommended as soon as the first signs of skin aging appear which usually occur from 40 to 50 years old. This treatment is also affective in treating large pores and perioral rhytides.
One hour before the session begins, anhydrous topical anesthetic cream is placed on the area to be treated. During this session, the laser sweeps over the area being 4 to 8 times. The number of times the laser passes the area depends on the texture and indication.
The skin appears to be sunburned for 2-3 days. A moisturizer can be used to calm skin irritation. Makeup can be used.
Sun protection is strongly recommended for the next 15 days.
For best results, 4 to 5 sessions spaced out 15 days to a month are needed. Results can be seen after the second session and will improve with each session as the collagen is created and the epidermis is renewed. In order to maintain results, annual sessions are recommended.
