Laser Collagen Stimulation

Laser Collagen Stimulation

Collagen break-down accounts for the lost elasticity and fullness of the skin and the progressive appearance of undesired signs of aging. Collagen, along with elastin, is the major structural protein component of the skin that keeps it firm and strong. By today it has become popular knowledge that environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution or certain life-style factors like smoking can accelerate the unavoidable process. But is there anything that could slow it down?

For years laser collagen stimulation has been a prevalent beauty treatment that is proven to restore vitality, firmness and glow to the skin. The goal of laser collagen treatment is to stimulate skin cells to produce and repair collagen in either the deeper layers of the skin or in the upper dermis. Laser collagen treatment methods are approved by the FDA, so their safety should not be a concern.

What Results Can You Expect From Laser Collagen Stimulation?

  • More youthful, glowing complexion
  • Reduce mimic wrinkles, crow’s feet
  • Tighter, fuller looking skin

Ablative Laser Collagen Stimulation

CO2 laser is used to stimulate collagen regeneration by basically vaporizing the outer dermis and the complete epidermis.

The surface of the skin after the laser collagen treatment becomes sore and sensitive, but within 2-3 weeks a new epidermis and collagen develops and continues to regenerate for as long as 3-6 months.

With this somewhat drastic procedure you can reach drastic skin rejuvenation with even one treatment session; reduced wrinkles, elasticity, youthful glow.

Non-Ablative Laser Collagen Stimulation

It is a less inconvenient procedure, with naturally subtler but still visible results. The so called non-ablative laser, such as fractional erbium or pulsed light, mostly affects the surface of your skin and does not evaporate deeper layers. Non-ablative laser collagen treatment stimulates collagen build-up in the upper dermis, but for visible results, several treatment sessions are necessary. With constant application fine wrinkles fade away and skin texture and color are improved.
