There was a time not so long ago when any skin rejuvenation processes required extensive surgical intervention and prolonged downtime. Scars from face lifts behind the hairline were not uncommon either. Today all that has changed radically. Modern state of the art machinery running on advanced cutting edge technologies has simplified skin treatment procedures to an extent where patients can have a session of facial freshening completed in under a half an hour and resume normal routine almost immediately.
Here are a few of the processes that have revolutionised skin rejuvenation procedures in the aesthetic beauty care industry.
IPL laser machines
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser machines harnesses the power of light energy for skin treatment procedures. Beams of light are directed at the area under treatment. The wavelengths enter the top layer of the skin deep enough to stimulate production of collagen. This is the substance that ensures that the skin is fresh and looks tight and young.
However, the body’s own production of collagen stops when a person is around 25 years of age and then begins the degeneration process. This change manifests itself much later in the form of fines lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, crow’s feet around the eyes and black and acne spots.
The laser targets the dermal layer and induces production of collagen again, making way for a fresh and new look.
Plasma skin regeneration (PSR) has a dramatic skin improvement effect by enhancing texture and tone and eradicating birth marks and acne spots and scars. It helps to do away with fine lines and wrinkles, skin pigmentation such as black marks, coffee marks and acne scars. This non laser technology delivers energy in the form of plasma to rejuvenate skin and is one of the technologies approved by FDA and clinically proven to be effective.
To understand how PSR works, it is necessary to know the ageing process. As the body ages, the epidermis becomes thinner and blemishes become more stark. The loss of collagen further hastens formation of fine facial lines and wrinkles. A plasma surface treatment machine delivers plasma instead of light or ultrasound energy. A handpiece emits millisecond pulses of nitrogen based plasma-containing energy which heats up the skin’s surface to remove photo-damaged epidermal cells. It also boosts production of collagen which over time results in skin freshening and rejuvenation.
High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) face lifting
Hifu face lifting machine has a procedure that harnesses the power of ultrasound for skin rejuvenation treatments. It is very effective for treatment of sagging eyelids, elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin texture and tone, large pores and blurred jaw line. All these aspects give an overall tired look and this non-surgical face lift is ideal to eliminate that. This is one reason why this process has immensely gained in popularity worldwide. The main areas of the body where ultrasound therapy can be worked on are brows and forehead, chin, neck and stomach including reduction of stretch marks there.
HIFU or non-invasive ultrasound machines generate low levels of heat which is directed on the area under treatment. This stimulates the cells which results in an increase in collagen production and tissue rejuvenation, making for a fresh and young look. With the elasticity restored, the skin has a more supple and soft feel and texture.
These are some of the modern cutting edge machines to keep your skin looking beautiful.
