What is the Laser non-ablative collagen
remodeling and rejuvenation procedure?
The procedure is an advanced way of improving skin
complexion and appearance that requires only the
touch of a sophisticated treatment tip to your skin.
It is performed with an advanced Nd: YAG laser, and
requires no incisions or recovery time.
Is it safe?
The procedure is very safe.
The procedure causes increases in temperature with
significant thermal reaction at the level of deep
dermal cells. These cells become activated and show
an elevated metabolism with subsequent enzymes as
well as growth factors activation. This will control
the recruitment and proliferation of new cells that
modulate the formation of new blood vessels and
collagen formation and remodeling.
Collagen is a building block that supports the
structure of the skin. Over time, collagen becomes
depleted or damaged by the sun or other
environmental factors. The results are visible signs
of aging such as loose skin and wrinkles.
