Aging is, as everyone knows, a natural process. Throughout history, people have sought ways to reverse this. Nowadays, with the increase in technological developments, the desire to appear young attracts more attention especially by women. Therefore, scientists are looking for new solutions every day. Laser face lift treatment is the result of these studies.
Why does Skin Aging?
Skin aging is caused by factors such as genetic factors, stress, exposure to harmful sunlight, insomnia, working conditions and eating habits. On the other hand, the skin constantly renews itself and repairs the effects of aging. Especially after the age of 30, the repair rate in the cells slows down. And aging begins. The collagen production of the skin is reduced. With the loss of elastic fibers in the connective tissue that forms the support layer of the skin, signs of aging such as skin loosening, wrinkles, sun spots, and skin thinning occur. In the future, people can slow down, perhaps reverse, this process with advancing technology.
Can We Prevent Aging?
Scientists have been working on this for a long time. But unfortunately this does not seem possible yet. We can only strengthen the connective tissue by increasing the production of collagen. Thus, skin aging slows down by entering a natural repair process.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Possible?
Yes it is possible! It is a treatment method which is based on increasing the collagen production by the laser rays converting to heat as a result of complete scanning of the skin with laser beams. Collagen production leads to the formation of new connective tissue. This gives the skin a taut, lively appearance.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing – Wrinkle Removal and Skin Tightening
Co2 fractional laser beams is an application used in facial rejuvenation. Co2 fractional laser radiation is an effective treatment that can affect both the top and bottom of the skin. It triggers collagen production by opening microchannels in the skin. Thus initiates an organic repair process.
Micro-wounds on the skin after co2 fractional laser treatment are manifested as mild redness. The subsequent crusting will gradually lose its effect. After 1 to 2 weeks, the skin returns to normal. The increase in collagen production and renewal of connective tissue and visible improvement in the skin will begin 1-4 months after the end of the treatment and will continue for an average of 10-18 months. There will be a noticeable difference at the end of the treatment process. But you need to be patient to see the result. Single session laser application may be sufficient. Some people can be treated for up to 6 sessions.
You should follow the skin care program your doctor will give you after laser treatment. People who have well-groomed and clean skin will of course look younger.
What should I look out for when CO2 Laser Resurfacing is performed?
- Before and after treatment from exposure to sunlight
We should avoid.
- Solarium is strictly prohibited during the treatment period.
- The use of drugs that prevent blood clotting is prohibited.
- High-factor sunscreens should be used during the treatment period. Preventive measures should be used when wearing hats and goggles during the summer months.
- Hot water should not be applied to the treated area.
Laser Face Lift Treatment Painful?
Treatment is a painless / painless procedure that does not require anesthesia. There will be a slight burning sensation after treatment. The effects of the burning sensation will diminish and disappear during the day. Anesthetic creams can be used if desired.
Is The Treatment Permanent? Do I Have The Same Problem Again?
Laser rejuvenation is a treatment that lasts for 1 year. It can be repeated once a year for maintenance purposes. As collagen production decreases, skin problems gradually appear.
