Skin rejuvenation is one of the human methods to find a solution for eternal youth. Our souls stay young forever but we cannot fight the time effect on our face. However, skin rejuvenation has helped us to have a young, youthful look through it many methods and the sooner we start the better results we have.
What are the methods used in skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation has various methods to decrease wrinkles and the sags on the face and prevent skin aging. In our clinic we use three effective methods; the laser systems, the focused ultrasound system, and the Scarlet S treatment.
What are the laser systems for skin rejuvenation?
There are two types of laser systems for skin rejuvenation, the Nd: YAG and the fractional CO2 laser.
The Nd: YAG laser treatment:
Whit aging the collagen synthesis in our body decreases. However, the Nd: YAG (Neodymium Yttrium Aluminum Garnet – Nd: Y3AI5O12) laser system increases collagen synthesis to decrease the sagging and wrinkles by the temperature given to the skin with the laser. You will need from 4 to 6 sessions twice a year but it depends on your skin.
The fractional CO2 laser:
Collagen is an important protein for the tissue but it increases with aging and then the wrinkles and sagging start to appear on the skin. The fractional CO2 laser is a new generation in skin rejuvenation that opens channels in the skin in a microscopic width to cause selective thermal damage to the blood vessels, collagen, and keratinocyte in the targeted area. With this application the living cells around that area move to repair the damage and stimulate it which makes the collagen synthesis increases again.
The fractional micro-needle frequency is the newest generation in radio frequency treatments. By using the golden needle it heats the collagen deep in the skin without damaging the upper skin to trigger the collagen synthesis. With the radio frequency system treatment, the skin rejuvenation may take from 2 to 3 months to start after 4 to 8 sessions that lasts from 40 to 60 minutes once a week but it varies according to the skin type.
Scarlet S treatment:
Scarlet S or the golden needle treatment is connected to a radiofrequency unit with a golden needle to target specific areas and cure many dermatologic problems. With the help of the golden needle, the radiofrequency heats the deeper skin without damaging the upper skin to create new collagen to repair the tissue. The skin gets cleaned and apply anesthesia on the area to reduce the pain before the Scarlet S process starts. The process takes between 30 to 40 minutes and you should not take a shower, swim, or be exposed to the sun too much for 24h. Also, some redness may occur on the skin for a few hours after the treatment.
