Laser rejuvenation

Under the "laser rejuvenation" refers to a series of treatments - laser resurfacing or laser peels, which differ in specificity and intensity effects on the skin, but is aimed at a single result – a global update and restructure the surface of the epidermis and dermis. tasks laser resurfacing

Laser one, settings - the lot!

Task laser rejuvenation - skin renewal while eliminating the age and aesthetic changes:

  • wrinkles
  • sagging skin
  • irregularities of color and skin tone,
  • scarring etc.

Also, when a laser rejuvenation :

  • narrow pores
  • improves skin density,
  • returns the elasticity and firmness of the skin.

It is important to understandthat laser resurfacing is not limited to only two facial peeling and grinding between light parameters laser peeling and serious deep polishing is a set of options of settings of the laser device, each of which makes the procedure of laser treatment is unique.

Experienced beautician with good laser device there are a lot of tricks that he can use, by selecting different modes to solve the problems of each individual patient!

The success and effectiveness of laser treatment depends on the experience of the doctor-cosmetologist, who conducts this procedure.

Which is better - a peeling or laser resurfacing?

Peeling easy procedure, for a minor improvement of the skin. The impact is only on the top layer of the skin.

Grinding - drastic procedure in which the skin would be replaced by new, healthy ones. Rehabilitation - up to 14 days. But the result is super!

In the professional medical language in English cosmetologists appears the word "resurfacing", which most succinctly and accurately reflects the goal of the procedures of laser resurfacing.


Laser resurfacing is the most advanced procedure for skin renewal!

Professional cosmetologists prefer laser treatments obsolete chemical (acid) peels. The effect is noted after laser and chemical effects, are very similar, but a variety of options when using the wide settings of the laser device making the procedure more flexible and applicable for more "subtle" correction of the patient's skin.

The impact of

For those wishing to delve into the details of laser treatments you must know that laser action the degree of impact is divided into a light (laser peels), secondary (different parameters and settings, usually such procedures are called laser rejuvenation) and intense (laser resurfacing).

In fact, it is unprofessional classification referred from the field of chemical peelings. Clear boundaries between light and intense exposure to no, some beauticians and do - share only two types of laser treatment: peeling and grinding.

Type of exposure

You can often hear the term photothermolysis is the process of effects on tissue the light energy to "put", "vaporize" that is the target of thermolysis. Laser hair removal, IPL treatments also refer to the photo in thermolysis and have target the melanin. Is a General term emphasizing the nature of the impact and including laser treatment.

If the light beam has not broken the skin, this effect is called non-ablative.

Non-ablative treatments are notable for the fact that heat tissue up to 40-85°C. This threshold is not enough to "evaporation" of the tissue, but enough to damage old collagen to promote neo de collagenases. Non-ablative laser rejuvenation has similarities with the RF-elevatis, but has a different principle of influence.

The procedure is indicated for patients with low-grade deformation type of aging ("floated" oval face area, jowls, bags under the eyes, etc.) and designed for prolonging youthful skin. Sometimes it is prescribed in the complex treatment of acne.

For example, non-ablative effects are IPL treatments, but it is not a laser, and light exposure.

If after exposure to the laser beam traces remain ("wells", "furrows", etc.), then this effect is called ablative.

ablative laser

Generally, the ablation - only laser procedure. Therefore, the term "laser ablative photothermolysis" is a "butter oil", but from the point of view of terminology it is applicable: laser (light exposure) ablative (violation of the skin) photothermolysis (type of procedure). Often use a combination of "laser ablative peels", "ablative laser resurfacing", which emphasize the degree of impact.

Typically, the laser beam apparatus to the skin of the patient within the square region (therefore, the treatment area after the procedure visually divided into squares).

In the case that within these squares, the beam burns point (i.e. does not affect the solid surface of the skin), then this effect is called fractional. Almost all laser procedures for skin rejuvenation are fractus. Although if you set the machine in a special way, it is possible to "burn" the skin within the squares is a classic solid grinding.

The combination of these terms - ablation, fractional, photothermolysis, grinding, peeling - can be confusing! The biggest confusion is in the term fractional laser resurfacing.

Grinding is the basis of laser resurfacing.

Laser resurfacing is the first term that emerged with the appearance in cosmetic laser technology, and therefore generated a lot of mistaken understandings of fact treatments.

Initially it was thought that any (not just laser) resurfacing - a solid impact on skin area. So many experts of the old school, the term "fractional" (i.e. not solid) grinding is perceived in bayonets.

Moreover, many (and not only patients but also doctors), is called laser resurfacing any fractional photothermolysis, although laser peel is also fractional photo thermolysis.

Peeling laser units is carried out in the light settings that affect only the epidermis, therefore it is considered care procedure.

It should be understood that the peel and resurfacing is the concept of narrow-minded, and photothermolysis (just thermolysis, ablation) is a concept special.

So usually apply the following scale of concepts: fractional ablation = ablative fractional photothermolysis. If on easy settings, this laser peel. If "intensive" options is laser resurfacing. If somewhere in the middle, that term is not invented and is simply called fractional photothermolysis "laser resurfacing".

laser rejuvenation goals

The goal of laser action:

  • The reduction in skin grafts (bio-lifting);
  • Alignment of the skin texture;
  • The smoothing of age-related wrinkles and folds;
  • Mitigation of scarring (including stretch mark removal and postoperative / post-traumatic hypertrophic scars).

The choice of impact parameters is the prerogative of the doctor.

Conclusions and recommendations

The choice of a specific procedure of laser rejuvenation is a beautician based on the results of diagnostics, indications and contraindications, current problems, beauty "history" and expectations of the patient.

The experience of the beautician is very important when choosing a mode of operation of the apparatus.

Level (novelty) laser system is also important because the newer the machine the more accurate and modern, laid down in his programs.
