Laser treatment (wrinkle smoothing)

Laser treatment (wrinkle smoothing)Our center performs hair removal procedures employing a new generation fractional laser. According to many doctors and experts, it is the best choice for removing other skin defects (scars left after acne, stretch marks (striae)). This methodology can undoubtedly be called a revolution in the last 20 years of laser medicine. In comparison with the techniques that were previously used, this procedure is more effective, painless, faster and safer. 

Fractional laser principle

Ablative laser skin resurfacing was used to remove skin defects earlier. At that time the solid upper layer of the skin was removed. It was a complicated procedure, which required anesthesia and a long recovery period (about 1 month). There was a high risk of side effects too. Nowadays, the fractional laser removes only 0.3 - 0.4 mm of skin in diameter, about 1.5 mm of skin depth (fraction) and such 1 cm2 fractions can make up from 36 to 100 units. Healthy and undamaged skin among fractions causes a rapid recovery after the procedure. About 20 % of the skin surface is removed in one procedure. Thus, within 4-5 procedures the whole surface of the skin is replaced.

What is the difference between fractional skin renewal and other methods?
Methods that are used for facial skin renewal are similar to the ablative and non-ablative.

Ablative lasers remove the top layer of the solid skin. Due to its complexity and high risk of side effects, this method is rarely used.

Non-ablative lasers operate on the principle of selective photothermolysis and are safe. There are some minor inconveniences after the procedure. Non-ablative lasers, however, are suitable only to remove slight changes and the positive effect is sometimes transient.

Fractional skin rejuvenation is like a bridge between an ablative and non-ablative method. Its advantage is that this method produces mainly positive effects (removes deeper wrinkles) and almost none of negative ones (safe and painless).

How many procedures are required?
From 3 to 5 procedures.

Is the procedure painful?
The procedure is well-tolerated and is a little more sensitive around the eye and in the upper lip area. If there is a need, pain reducing ointments are used.

How long does the procedure last?
Depending on the area where the procedure is performed, the procedure on average takes from 10 to 40 minutes.
