Fractional facial rejuvenation is one of the most modern methods resorted to by women in the struggle for the extension of youth.
This procedure is a worthy alternative to other more radical methods of correction of age changes.
The principle of operation
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 deep layers of the skin with exposure to the laser.
The principle is the same laser peel, but deeper, as demonstrated in pronounced effects on rejuvenation and skin tightening, as well as a long recovery period. But more on that later.
An advantage of the procedure is that the use of photorejuvenation will help to solve complex problems: in addition to direct anti-aging effect, accomplish some other cosmetic problems (evens 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 cosmetic correction of skin defects and is very popular.
Machine for photorejuvenation is a compact device on the working surface of which are cells that produce laser beams.
For greater efficiency of the laser beam produced from a solar cell is divided into micro beams that make up the working laser grid for peeling 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 anesthetic to make unpleasant and even painful sensations to minimum.
Reviews say you still have to endure some discomfort despite 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 produce elastin and collagen, essential for skin rejuvenation.
Specialist can control the force of impact of the laser on the skin depending on the skin characteristics and needs of the client.
Depending on the depth of penetration of the beam we can distinguish two types 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 triggers regenerative processes and tightens the skin, providing a visible lifting effect after the first session;
- Non-ablative effect occurs at the deeper layers of the skin. The effect of it lasts longer, but requires rather, it is age skin with pronounced wrinkles. The outer layers of the skin thus will not experience such aggressive actions of the laser.
A competent specialist must choose the desired level of effect. Ideally, during 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.
