Skin Rejuvenation

  • Skin rejuvenation may be divided into several categories; the removal of pigmented lesions known as age/sun spots, the removal of vascular lesions also known as spider veins, improvement of skin texture and the smoothing of lines and wrinkles. Although a singular treatment type is employed for all, the underlying processes that bring about the results differ somewhat.
  • The effect on skin texture is based on the stimulation of new collagen growth that will help replenish and even out the shrunken dermal layer. New growth is achieved by heating the dermal collagen and causing a mild thermal insult to the dermis.
  • The creation of new collagen and connective material caused by the injury and subsequent fibroblast activation occurs over a period of a few months. This wound healing response leads to improvement in skin texture and the smoothing of fine lines that have been shown to hold up over several years if you practice stringent sun protection.
