New Laser Techniques Increase Options for Skin Rejuvenation
We are bombarded daily with information on combating aging with laser devices that say they bring incredible results. This includes the treatment of wrinkles, spots on the skin, vessels, stimulation of collagen, etc.
It is important to clarify that the treatment called the "laser" generalizes those who use laser devices themselves and those of aesthetic ultrasound, intense pulsed light, infrared, radiofrequency, microcurrent, etc. We will update ourselves on the laser treatments themselves. They are devices that use the action of light based on a principle called selective photothermolysis, in which the light beam reaches a specific target such as melanin (stain, hair), hemoglobin (vessels), water (skin), the fat, etc. These laser beams heat or destroy these targets according to the purpose of the treatment.
Laser rejuvenation (whether of the neckline, neck, back of the hands and forearms) is intended to treat and prevent injuries by the chronological and extrinsic aging of the skin. The rays, depending on the technology and wavelength, can reach the superficial or deeper part of the skin as needed, ablatively (burning / destroying) or not (stimulating the formation of collagen), causing the vessels that lie there or more deeply stimulating collagen, preventing and treating wrinkles and furrows.
The "ablative" form can be performed throughout the skin at different depths, causing a more intense rejuvenation, but with greater effects collateral, discomfort and recovery time. Therefore, it requires a series of intensive care from the doctor and the team that assists the patient, since there may be a higher incidence of complications. To reduce all of these "cons", the most recent form of fractioned laser has been created, where ablation is performed with laser shots in micro-points on the skin. Then there will be microdots destroyed in healthy skin.
There are other laser devices with different wavelengths (10660nm, 1340nm, 1540nm, 1440nm, 1064nm, 810nm, etc.). These healthy skin will regenerate rapidly, avoiding all the complications inherent to the destruction of the entire skin. Wavelengths will be emitted according to the "filter" of the device which can be CO2 laser, erbium laser, diode laser, Nd-Yag laser, Nd-Yap laser and from there arise the different names and specifications of the same that can sometimes
It is important to say that the results will always depend on the chosen device, the correct selection of the type of treatment and the result that one wishes to obtain. He is totally technical dependent, that is to say that the experience of the doctor is fundamental and the complications also of the qualifications of the doctor. Nd-Yap seems to be one of the devices that promise to offer rejuvenation even for the skins. but as we mentioned earlier, the results, complications and indications depend on medical qualification.
We need to understand that skin rejuvenation requires different approaches and laser devices are just another modern instrument in this skin treatment process . A dermatologist or plastic surgeon with in-depth knowledge and experience should conduct a comprehensive, comprehensive and chronologically plan the treatment as well as choose the best options for each case as well as the alternatives for all steps in attempting to deliver better results with less risks of complications. Each program will require proper care of the techniques in the pre-procedure, during and after. The Brazilian medicine is well up to date and has gone along with the launches and the various devices are already used and most of the time there are no difficulties to find the cutting edge options for treatment with laser devices.
The technique acts by generating heat in the tissue under the skin, which induces the production of new collagen fibers and improves the appearance of the skin. "For this, high-frequency currents are emitted, which have an approximate voltage of 30,000 to 40,000 Volts and a frequency of 1560 to 200 kilohertz," explains dermatologist Ana Paula Jordão of Vivid Clinic Radiofrequency indications "Among the most common indications for radiofrequency are: improving skin flaccidity, reducing wrinkles, reducing cellulite, acne scar treatment and stretch marks," explains dermatologist Elvira Cancio Assumpção, a member of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology.
Androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is the leading cause of hair loss in men. The incidence of this disease is determined by genetic influences, with the highest prevalence being among those of European descent. Despite the great psychological impact, already studied in several scientific publications, it is known that there are still few men seeking treatment.
