LaseMD is a Fracional NonAblative Laser – which means that it uses laser energy to create micro-channels in the skin through which it works its effects. These micro-channels stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which helps to improve the overall health and quality of the skin at a cellular level.
How Does LaseMD Work?
By understanding collagen and how it works, we can slow the ageing process and keep you looking younger for longer. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is made up of 3 key layers – the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous layer.
The epidermis is the outermost layer of skin and is the part you can see. It provides a waterproof barrier which is made up of layers of skin cells. When we are young, the life cycle of a new skin cell is approximately 28 days. As we age this process slows down dramatically, leading to dull and dry appearing skin.
The dermis is where our collagen and elastin live. These fibres give support, flexibility and strength to the skin which in turn gives us our smooth and youthful appearance. From age 25, our production of collagen naturally depletes, causing it to show visible signs of ageing such as sagging, lines, and wrinkles.
Finally, our subcutaneous fat layer provides insulation and padding. As we get older, our fat pads thin and fall with gravity and we lose facial volume, again adding to an aged look. LaseMD works by stimulating collagen production by delivering just the right amount of energy to the right depth within the skin. This energy triggers a natural response within the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process producing new collagen. The laser creates microscopic channels within the skin which help damaged tissue and unwanted pigment to be removed creating a more even tone and texture. The microscopic channels also act as a pathway for enhanced delivery of vitamins and antioxidants directly to the site they are needed to nourish, repair and further promote healthy skin.
There are many lasers available on the market, but LaseMD is revolutionary in optimal skin regeneration for two reasons. The downtime is a faction of what patients had to deal with in the past for a full resurfacing – which means that you can be back to your normal routine in a day or two. Also – LaseMD is safe for all skin types and conditions with less heat produced compared to similar technologies on the market. With minimal discomfort, there is no need for anaesthetic making it a fast and extremely affordable treatment.
