The Laser is a procedure widely used in Aesthetic Medicine. It consists of using a device capable of producing a "thermal effect" that triggers a certain reaction in the body's tissues. There are different technologies and types of laser, each with different advantages and characteristics.
Non-ablative fractional lasers were developed for skin rejuvenation, without the inconvenience and post-operative CO4 laser. The principle of fractional laser is to save healthy skin areas between the treated areas, facilitating and promoting faster healing from the spared areas.
The energy that is emitted by the Laser, in addition to acting directly on areas of aged skin, propagates laterally, leading to the heating of the deeper layers of the surrounding skin, being a stimulus in the production, remodeling and contraction of collagen, as well as in increased density of elastic fibers. As a result, there is an improvement in the elasticity, resistance and firmness of the skin, depigmentation with significant reduction of the spots, reduction of flaccidity, smoothing of the texture, smoothing of the skin and an evident “lifting” effect.
Non-ablative fractional resurfacing has good results in the treatment of fine to moderate wrinkles and other signs of skin photoaging. Other indications are atrophic scars, acne scars and surgical scars.
The great advantages are the speed of recovery and less discomfort during the procedure, which can be performed only with an anesthetic cream.
3 to 4 sessions are recommended, the results appear progressively with each application and the skin continues to improve until 6 months after the last session.
