Стареенето на кожата се дължи на комбинация от различни причини .След 30-годишна възраст на повърхността на кожата започват да се появяват първите видими признаци на стареене. Първо фините линии, а с течение на времето и бръчки, загуба на обем и загуба на плътност. Не всички от тях са неизбежни, на някои може да се повлияят .
Aging of the skin is due to a combination of different causes. After 30 years of age the first visible signs of aging appear on the surface of the skin. First appear fine lines, but over time – wrinkles, loss of volume and loss of density. Not all of them are inevitable, some may be affected.
Despite advancing technology in medicine, there is no universal anti skin aging therapy at this stage. There are different methods that can be used to cope with different symptoms of aging skin.
Laser skin rejuvenation is one of the most effective and reliable methods for stimulating your own collagen production, restoring the loosened contour of the face, refreshing and rejuvenating the skin’s surface layers.
Laser rejuvenation of the skin is a major part of the overall care to keep our skin elastic and youthful.
The Cynosure Icon ™ laser system is latest generation non-ablative Erbium Yag laser that hurts the skin in the treated area, as a result of which the intensive regeneration processes are activated. This leads to the synthesis of a large amount of new collagen, improving the elasticity and density of the skin.
The area of the face, neck and neckline can be treated.
Тhe duration of the treatment varies depending on the size of the treated area and the degree of damage. It takes about 20-30 minutes. The patient feels warmth and slight pinching at each pulse, which is completely tolerable. In extremely rare cases and depending on the area being treated and the sensitivity of the patient, an analgesic cream may be applied 20 minutes before therapy.
After the end of the treatment, hydrating and photo-protective cream is applied with 50 SPF.
Immediately after the treatment, the patient may return to his or her daily duties.
The treated area is less pronounced and has a slight redness. These symptoms can last for 5-7 days.
Make-up can be applied to cover the redness immediately after the treatment.
It is important and absolutely mandatory for the patient to use high SPF 50 photo-protective creams for at least 2 months after the last treatment.
The number of treatments is determined depending on the depth of the wrinkles as well as the looseness of the skin. Typically, the therapeutic effect is achieved gradually in 3 to 4 treatments. The interval between treatments is 3 to 4 weeks.
It takes 3 months after completing the course of treatment to see the complete result. After this period, the need for additional treatments is assessed.
It is desirable that laser therapy be conducted during the seasons in which the affected area is not exposed to direct sunlight. Such are autumn, winter and spring.
There are conditions in which the treatment is strictly contraindicated due to the high risk of unpredictable side effects:
• presence of open wounds
• presence of tan from recent exposure to sun or solarium
• patients who are going to have sun exposure within 30 days of the last treatment
• active herpes and other skin infections in the area of the treated area
• malignant skin formations
• in case of systemic intake of drugs enhancing the sensitivity of the skin to the rays, etc.
