The development of laser cosmetology technologies has allowed a person to start a serious war on skin aging. Laser skin rejuvenation quickly took its bottom in cosmetology, as a person always wanted to minimize age-related skin changes, and laser methods to combat wrinkles showed high efficiency.
Wrinkles occur as a result of loss by the human skin of its former elasticity and activity of the muscles of the face. Over time, the synthesis and division of cells slows down, and the skin loses moisture, which leads to a decrease in the degree of elasticity and firmness. Also, the hereditary predisposition of a special characteristic type (the appearance of facial wrinkles) has a strong influence on the appearance of age-related wrinkles.
At the same time, the number of age-related pathologies in dermatology is much wider, against which a laser beam can be effectively used. Depending on the type of pathology and chromophore, both different lasers and various laser techniques for skin rejuvenation are used. For example, ablation laser protocols (usually an erbium laser, sometimes CO2) are used to combat facial wrinkles or senile wrinkles, while if laser equipment (like LASEST) allows you to change the duration, energy density and structure of the laser spot in wide ranges, then laser resurfacing can be performed for various types of skin and wrinkles. The disadvantage of this method is a certain rehabilitation period of the patient after the procedure (depending on the processing parameters, it is from 1 to 2 weeks). If the patient wants to return to an active life immediately after the procedure, then in this case it is better to use non-ablative methods that do not injure the skin. In the case of removal of senile pigmentation, it is necessary to use Q-Switched laser, the radiation length of which is well absorbed by melanin (the main chromophore for age spots).
The laser to combat skin aging quickly took leading positions due to the following features:
Despite the tangible benefits of the procedure. However, there are the following factors that impede its implementation:
Before the procedure, it is worth observing several recommendations: a month before the procedure, any cosmetic procedures are required, several days it is required to refuse cosmetics. Algorithm of the procedure:
Carrying out this procedure imposes certain restrictions:
Depending on the type of age-related pathology, various laser modules can be used:
Today, there are many systems that allow laser skin rejuvenation, but the LASEST laser system is one of the best solutions for laser rejuvenation due to the successful combination of Nd: YAG Active and Er: YAG Active modules, as well as due to its high efficiency. Also, the above modules have an ergonomic design and are convenient for use by doctors, which allows the LASEST medical laser system to occupy its niche in this field of cosmetology.
