What is non-ablative fractional rejuvenation?

Aesthetic defects and age-related skin changes can cause serious moral discomfort. Especially when it comes to women who want to remain attractive and desirable for as long as possible. And although scientists haven't been able to unlock the secret of "eternal youth", there are still some advances. In particular, we are talking about non-ablative fractional rejuvenation - a non-surgical correction technique that involves exposing tissue through a laser.

Stages of the non-ablative rejuvenation procedure

The technique is based on converting light energy into heat. Penetrating under the skin, the laser beam heats tissues to 45-86 °C, causing partial evaporation of the liquid to a volume that stimulates natural metabolic and biochemical reactions in the skin's cellular and extracellular matrix. In addition, in the processing zones, the neocollagenesis process is launched - the formation of new collagen fibers, responsible for the skin's elasticity and firmness. Furthermore, radiation is absorbed by the skin's chromophores and, bypassing the epidermis, penetrates into the dermis, providing an additional antibacterial effect.

The non-ablative laser rejuvenation procedure is absolutely painless, performed without anesthesia, does not cause pain and discomfort. In addition, it is often used as the primary method for correcting age-related changes in especially sensitive areas of the skin - the neck, around the eyes, etc. To obtain a visible effect, 3-4 sessions with 2-3 day intervals are enough. In the interval between procedures, to consolidate the positive results, the specialist's recommendations must be followed.
