This procedure is an important alternative to other more radical methods for the correction of age changes.
The principle of the thing
Finding the information about fractional rejuvenation you can find many other alternative names. This laser fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing, DOT therapy (dot).
Fractional resurfacing is a grinding surface and the deep layers of the skin with exposure of the laser.
The principle is the same laser peel, but deeper, as demonstrated in the pronounced effects of rejuvenation and tightening of the skin, as well as a long recovery period. But, more on that later.
The advantage of the procedure is that the use of photorejuvenation will help you to solve complex problems: in addition to the direct anti-aging effect, to achieve some other cosmetic problems (the events of the pigmentation of the skin, narrowing the pores and removes small scars or scars).
This versatile procedure today has taken a worthy place among the other methods of aesthetic correction of skin defects and has been very popular.
Machine for photorejuvenation is a compact device of the working surface of which are cells, which produce the laser beams.
For greater efficiency of the laser beam produced from the solar cell is divided into micro beams that make up the working laser network for the peeling of the skin. The rays are very hot and fine, which allows the procedure to be more efficient.
Immediately before grinding is applied to the skin of the anesthetic to make are unpleasant and even painful sensations to minimum.
The comments say that you still have to endure some discomfort despite the pain medication.
The aggressive action of the laser stimulates a series of processes:
- triggers the regenerative processes;
- The horny and old skin layers die off and flake;
- the body begins to actively the production of elastin and collagen, essential for skin rejuvenation.
A specialist can control the force of impact of the laser on the skin, depending on skin characteristics and needs of the client.
Depending on the depth of penetration of the beam we can distinguish two kinds of therapeutic effects with different effect:
- Ablative effect has a more pronounced effect on the surface of the skin, due to the shallow penetration of the beam. Under intense exposure there is damage to the micro zones that activates the regenerative processes and tightens the skin, providing a visible lifting effect after the first session;
- Non-ablative effect occurs in the deeper layers of the skin. The effect of it lasts longer, but requires on the contrary, it is the age of the skin with expressed wrinkles. The outer layers of the skin thus will not experience as the aggressive actions of the laser.
A competent specialist must choose the desired level of effect. Ideally, in the course of the procedure, the procedure must be harmoniously combined with different methods of laser resurfacing: superficial and deep, so that the update processes have affected all the structures of the skin.
