Fractional laser rejuvenation (fractional photothermolysis) is a procedure that improves the condition of the skin.
You can eliminate many cosmetic problems with a laser: remove small expression lines, forget about acne and age spots, increase skin elasticity and give it an even, even tone.
More about laser rejuvenation
With the laser treatment you achieve perfect skin and make the oval face clearer and more precise.
In order to achieve a really noticeable effect and optically look five to ten to fifteen years younger, you need to attend more than one fractional laser procedure.
However, some positive changes can be noticed after the first visit to the salon.
Fractional lasers used in cosmetics have a unique effect on the skin.
They stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the dermis and thereby make the skin firmer and more elastic.
The cost of a method of fractional photothermolysis is from five to twenty thousand rubles.
The price of the service is made up of several factors: the quality of the laser equipment, the number of areas treated and the cost of the care products used during the session.
Fractional laser rejuvenation of the skin around the eyes is a laborious and expensive process.
The possibilities of fractional photothermolysis are great.
Properly executed procedure promises:
- significant reduction of deep skin folds;
- Disappearance of fine expression lines, acne, post-acne and age spots;
- Removal of stretch marks (striae) and scars;
- narrowing of pores and renewal of the texture of the epidermis;
- Removing the hardened layer of the dermis;
- Stimulates blood circulation and the skin's natural ability to regenerate.
The skin of the face, neck and décolleté is most often treated with a fractionated diode laser.
However, there are frequent cases of skin processing in other areas of the body: the stomach, thighs and buttocks. These procedures are done to remove scars or stretch marks.
To get a guarantee of a quality procedure, you should only communicate with a good beauty salon.
Before signing up for a master’s degree, read reviews on his or her work and ask about experience and qualifications.
Types of laser rejuvenation
Fractional photothermolysis is a general name that combines different types of cosmetic procedures.
They all have a similar effect: they quickly lift the skin, restore its appearance and eliminate wrinkles.
There are two types of fractional photothermolysis that you can read about in this section of the article.
Ablative rejuvenation is a procedure in which the main fraction effect is on the surface layer of the epidermis.
It is ideal for the targeted removal of skin impurities: pigmentation, scars, scars and expression lines.
Non-ablative rejuvenation involves thermal effects on the lower layers of the epidermis, usually without affecting the upper layers.
This procedure is required to activate metabolic processes in skin cells and to form a new, stronger collagen structure in the epidermis.
To treat large surfaces, it is better to use such a type of rejuvenation without injection than laser bio-revitalization.
This procedure combines the capabilities of a diode laser beam, which activates the natural processes of tissue regeneration, and a strong dose of hyaluronic acid that penetrates the skin under the influence of a cosmetic device.
Laser skin resurfacing can also be viewed as a rejuvenation procedure, but its effects are the most subtle and gentle.
With laser treatment, you can remove fine wrinkles, smooth pores and various irregularities, remove pigments, and slightly increase skin elasticity.
In order to achieve a stable and noticeable improvement in the condition of the epidermis, these procedures should be carried out in courses every two or three weeks.
However, there is a method that can improve the condition of the skin in one session with a beautician.
4D Rejuvenation is a practice that combines four treatments: SmothLiftin, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial.
Through their clever combination, you can noticeably improve the condition of the skin, establish metabolic processes in the deep layers of the epidermis and restore the lost elasticity of the dermis.
4D rejuvenation that guarantees permanent results after a procedure is a reality and not a marketing invention.
The only minus of 4D tapering, as can be seen from the reviews of the ladies who underwent the procedure, is its cost, which fluctuates within fifty thousand rubles.
How is laser facial rejuvenation performed?
Before starting laser skin rejuvenation using fractional photothermolysis, all possible impurities should be removed.
Many beauticians recommend a three-step system for cleaning the epidermis: removing dust and makeup with a gentle detergent, scrubbing and toning.
After the client's face has been prepared for the procedure, the master turns on the diode laser and starts applying his nozzle to problem areas of the skin, alternately treating all areas of the epidermis that require attention.
The thermal effect generated by the laser heats the inner layers of the skin and destroys old collagen bands.
This process triggers the formation of new, stronger collagen fibers. Modern cosmetological lasers generate heat pulses of different wavelengths.
Their duration ranges from 0. 2 to 0. 5 milliseconds.
Newly formed skin regeneration lesions caused by fractional photothermolysis are different in color from the areas of untreated skin.
As a rule, they turn red immediately after the procedure, and then covered with a thin crust. These symptoms go away quickly.
It is not recommended to wash or moisturize your face for a few hours after laser photothermolysis.
It should be treated with a special tonic or gel, which can be obtained from the beautician's office.
In addition, you should refuse the use of decorative cosmetics, do not sunbathe or protect the treated skin with a cream with a sun protection factor of 15 or more.
Advantages and disadvantages of laser skin rejuvenation
The procedures outlined in this article are very popular with women who have passed the threshold of 30 years.
In fact, the procedures have a number of advantages over traditional methods of rejuvenation - surgery and injection practices.
First, the process of skin restoration after laser rejuvenation takes no more than a week.
Second, such procedures can be done regularly every few months to support the newly acquired youth.
The wonderful effect that is reflected on the skin after an operation or after a 4D operation persists for a long time.
The rave reviews of women who have undergone fractional laser rejuvenation show that the result can last for up to five to seven years.
The laser treatment of the skin does not leave any unaesthetic scars or uneven skin.
The only side effects that can occur after visiting a beauty salon are a slight burning sensation in the areas of treatment of the epidermis, redness and peeling. All of them will pass in a short time and leave no trace.
Another undeniable advantage of fractional photothermolysis is the fact that such procedures can be combined with other cosmetological sessions.
If you don't have a lot of free time and want to do not just one but several salon care procedures within one visit, laser photo rejuvenation of the face can be one of them.
The average time for a procedure can vary from half an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the complexity of the problem to be solved and the size of the area treated.
The main disadvantage of laser skin rejuvenation treatments is their high cost.
In addition, they should not be carried out on people who suffer from various skin diseases in the acute stage, as well as on pregnant and breastfeeding women.
The laser rejuvenation methods described in this article differ in the properties of the effect of cosmetic diode lasers, the depth of penetration of their rays, as well as the specificity of the effect on the microthermal zones of the skin.
To find the type of procedure that will work to solve your problems, you should consult a dermatologist or esthetician.
