Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is treatment that uses one or more lasers to make the skin look better. Laser skin rejuvenation uses laser light to remove dead cells and debris from the outer layers of skin; if a greater effect is needed, the practitioner can also use the laser to remove the outermost layer of skin itself.
New types of lasers can also stimulate healing in the lower layers of skin without affecting the outer layers. Examples are the ‘pico’ lasers, such as the Picosure from Cynosure or the PicoWay from Syneron Candela. A pico laser fires its beam so quickly – in a picosecond, a trillionth of a second – that it manages to bypass the surface of the skin altogether and gets straight to stimulating healing in the lower layers with pressure waves. A pico laser is brilliant for breaking up the pigment in tattoos, which it shatters by acoustic vibration, and can also be used for skin rejuvenation.
Laser skin rejuvenation may combine the use of lasers with other treatments, such as chemical peels or microderabrasion, to achieve the rejuvenating effect that you are after. Scroll down for more info and all the FAQs about laser skin rejuvenation.
