Laser is a modern method of therapy. The laser converts electrical energy into a form of light energy that is transmitted by means of specially designed lasers. Low power lasers do not generate heat, therefore when the laser contacts your skin, you experience no warmth or burning.
The cold laser, when applied to specific areas on the face and body, revitalizes the skin resulting in visible improvements to your general appearance. It does this by:
- Stimulating the production of fibroblasts—the cells responsible for collagen production. The collagen helps fill in wrinkles and fine lines.
- Stimulating the production of keratinocytes—new skin cells that give the face a more even, healthy appearance.
- Increasing the production of hyaluronic acid by fibroblasts—hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the skin that binds water. The increase in HA levels greatly improves the hydration of the skin.
- Stimulating the production of nitric oxide, a powerful vasodilator—the improved blood flow helps nourish new skin cells with an improved supply of nutrients. The increased blood flow to the face also produces a more youthful glow.
