Acne is a disorder that results from the action of both hormones and other substances on the sebaceous glands and hair follicles in the skin. Severe acne can result in scarring. However, in conjunction with the right medical treatment, laser energy promotes collagen remodeling, proliferation of active fibroblasts and treatment of hyperactive sebaceous glands so that acne is reduced and post-acne scars are improved.
The laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin present in the hair follicles and transformed into heat, diffusing towards the stem cells of the hair shaft and destroying them. After a series of treatments, most hair yarns are removed forever. More information on definitive epilation here.
Intense pulsed light technology is based on its ability to diffuse into tissues, so it can treat a multitude of skin problems caused by sun exposure and skin aging. It is also possible to successfully coagulate many of the small blood vessels that produce the reddish coloration of pigmented lesions.
Laser energy or intense pulsed light is used to heat blood vessels that either shrink, or are completely destroyed. In this way, the size of vascular lesions decreases and their appearance is improved.
Rejuvenation and skin firmness
As we get older, the effects of solar radiation and environmental pollutants on the skin become more and more visible, causing wrinkles and spots and giving the face a tired look. Laser or IPL treatments can reverse these effects, bringing freshness to the skin and improving its texture. The final result, obtained after several sessions, is a younger and rested aspect. The intensity of treatments ranges from mild procedures (which can remove fine wrinkles and sun hyperpigmentation) to deep (effective to improve skin tone and texture and eliminate deep wrinkles, even in difficult areas such as the upper lip or periocular area).
Laser treatments or pulsed light, depending on the wavelengths used, can generate new collagen, thus “filling” the skin and correcting imperfections. After such a procedure both visible wrinkles and scars are reduced or disappear, and the tone and texture of the skin are dramatically improved.
