Facial laser therapy - discover the secret of the mild laser effect
In search of youth and beauty
The beneficial properties of laser therapy have been known in medicine since the 1960s. However, it was only recently appreciated by aesthetic medicine. Where scalpel interventions were used only, today a laser is used - much less invasive, generally shortening the recovery period.
In general medicine, laser allows to conduct short-term and also effective treatments, which bring significant relief to patients and allow to quickly get back to shape. For example, in laryngology, laser therapy for the sinuses or soft palate plasty is now used to harden the tissues - a laser procedure extremely important in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
In aesthetic medicine, laser therapy is usually based on the use of the fractional CO2 laser. Sense Med Concept provides comprehensive therapy using the devices that also use other technologies.
Laser therapy in cosmetology and aesthetic medicine
Facial and other laser therapy treatments have a very broad spectrum of applications. They help to significantly smooth the skin, rejuvenate it and reduce wrinkles. Thanks to the property of stimulation of collagen fibers they have a firming effect on the skin. The benefits of using laser therapy for hyperpigmentation,visible or broken capillaries, as well as various scars, including acne scars and stretch marks, are known.
Apart from laser therapy of scars, it is also worth to mention the removal of various naevi, pigmentation changes or reduction of enlarged pores, which makes them less visible. Laser therapy is also used in the broadly understood removal of unwanted hair.
Facial laser therapy used to eliminate the effect of skin aging is in line with the holistic approach to the patient in the spirit of pro-aging. This is something opposite to anti-aging, aimed at reversing or inhibiting the aging processes. Pro-aging treats the passage of time as a natural process related to a human. It means self-acceptance, where by using natural methods, such as laser therapy, you can highlight the beauty of your body.
Facial laser therapytreatments - which one to choose?
Modern aesthetic medicine provides a lot of solutions in the field of laser therapy for face, acne, wrinkles, scarring or, for example, laser point therapy. At Sense Med Concept, we have state-of-the-art devices using various technologies. Thanks to this, doctors are able to adjust the type of treatment i.a. to the skin condition and other individual needs of a particular patient.
Multifunctional laser treatment uses laser technology, which delivers the expected results in different areas. Depending on the head used, laser therapy results in the removal of hyperpigmentation changes, including those from the deep layers of the skin, reducing vascular lesions, scars and stretch marks, as well as evening out the skin tone. Such laser therapy is also used in the removal of tattoos.
In addition to the listed effects, such as scar reduction or stretch marks, facial laser therapy has the effect of refreshing and rejuvenating the skin, eliminating hyperpigmentation and sun damage, improving skin density and firmness, reduction of wrinkles, etc. The indication for laser therapy also includes changes such as ruby spots, capillaries and erythema.
Facial CO2 laser therapy is performed using an ablative laser. It utilizes high heat energy, which is supplied to the tissues and stimulates the formation of new collagen fibers. Thanks to the ablative effect of evaporating the top layer of the epidermis, it works well as laser therapy for hyperpigmentation, including age spots, as well as helps achieve a smooth and firm skin effect.
This method is recommended not only for patients seeking a way to improve the appearance of facial skin. CO2 laser treatment is used i.a. in laser therapy for stretch marks and scars.
Widely used in aesthetic medicine, a thulium laser is a subablative laser - it combines ablative and non-ablative technologies. During laser therapy, the skin structure is remodelled through deep penetration and supply of a large amount of energy. All thanks to the fact that it targets the layer between the epidermis and the dermis, without damaging the stratum corneum.
The device is used in laser therapy of acne scars, minor wrinkles, epidermal melasma and, among others, eliminating visible, enlarged pores. Thulium laser provides comprehensive laser therapy for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, age spots and freckles. It restores the proper texture of the skin, evens out its tone, gives the effect of rejuvenation and improved elasticity.
Of course, each skin has its individual needs. Sense Med Concept provides a wide range of treatments - thanks to which every patient treated by an experienced doctor will find the optimum form of therapy.
