As you age, your skin loses its firmness and smooth complexion. This is natural, as your body stops producing as much collagen as it did in your youth. As a result, you may start noticing more sagging, wrinkling, excess pigmentation, and hollowed areas of the skin that really shouldn’t be that way. Aging is inevitable, but we can help!
Fortunately, laser treatments have proven time and time again that they can be very useful for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. No matter if you are dealing with signs of aging or other skin imperfections, lasers such as MOXI™, Sciton® BBL, and TempSure™ Vitalia can trigger the production of new cells. Let’s see how they can help you.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
Laser therapy works by using different light wavelengths to stimulate the wound healing process. The laser passes through your upper skin tissue, targeting the cells underneath while not harming the healthy cells. This makes laser therapy a non-invasive procedure, with minimal side effects and discomfort.
Once it passes the top layers, it goes deeper to where the collagen structure is found. This causes a vibration effect, leading to the unhealthy skin breaking off and creating micro-lesions. The damaged tissue will then be removed naturally by your body, being replaced by newly formed cells.
Laser Treatments for Rejuvenation
There are different laser treatments that can help resurface and rejuvenate different areas and skin conditions. Here are some of the most popular treatment options for tight, plump, and blemish-free skin:
MOXI™ is a gentle fractional laser that is designed to treat blemishes and skin signs caused by aging or sun exposure. This can include conditions like uneven pigmentation, texture problems, light to medium sun damage, or even melasma. Many patients use MOXI™ for “prejuvenation,” as the laser prevents the early signs of aging.
The MOXI™ laser works by delivering light into your skin, creating a micro-coagulation zone. This will trigger your skin’s healing process and a new production of collagen and elastin. Mends will be produced on your skin – these are necrotic epidermal debris of microscopic sizes. Those mends will fall off within a week, revealing a tighter and rejuvenated skin with fewer imperfections.
MOXI™ treatments often take less than 15 minutes, making them a good option for lunchtime appointments. While there may be some skin sensitivity afterward, most patients should be able to return to their daily routine right after the treatment.
2. Sciton® BBL
Skin imperfections can make many women and men feel self-conscious. Most of them even use makeup to conceal their rosacea and other skin issues. Very often, these issues are caused by aging or a skin disorder that cannot be treated with regular skincare.
In these situations, treatments such as the Sciton® BBL can help reduce pigmentation. Using broadband light to increase collagen production and damage unhealthy cells, Sciton® BBL allows your skin to renew itself. Similar to other skin rejuvenation lasers, it starts your body’s natural healing process, reducing signs of aging.
The treatment is especially useful for treating conditions like hyperpigmentation, rosacea, angiomas, broken capillaries, and spider veins. That being said, it is also very efficient in reducing wrinkles and other signs of aging, offering you a more youthful look. Multiple Sciton® BBL treatments can help tighten your skin over time as new collagen cells are produced.
3. TempSure™ Vitalia
Over time, a woman’s private parts can go through various changes. This can be caused by natural processes such as aging, but childbirth can also lead to this. For example, 38 percent of women are believed to deal with vaginal laxity upon giving birth. Other associated symptoms of vaginal issues can be dryness or urinary incontinence.
Left unattended, this can significantly decrease your quality of life. A very efficient treatment for this is TempSure™ Vitalia, a laser treatment that uses therapeutic heat and gentle radiofrequency energy. The heat created by the treatment enters both external and internal tissue, triggering a healing process through collagen stimulation.
As the levels of elastin and collagen improve, your vaginal problems should become less evident. The procedure is non-invasive, which means that the potential for downtime is low to none. This makes it the perfect option for busy ladies who want to experience relief, but do not want to take time off from work.
