Laser and Photon Therapy for a Healthy and Youthful Skin

People feel confident and positive when they look good. A healthy skin boosts your confidence and adds to the ‘feel-good factor’ which can either make your day or break it. A better understanding of how our body works and how the skin grows has enabled doctors and researchers to come up with effective treatment methods to deal with skin problems.

This article will give you a complete insight on Laser Facial Rejuvenation, Photon Light Therapy and Photon Laser Therapy.

I’ll begin with what skin rejuvenation is – it is a treatment procedure carried out to alleviate signs of ageing to make the skin look young, healthy and radiant. Essentially the procedure rejuvenates the skin making it look fresh, clean and healthy.

This treatment is done through a number of procedures namely, laser, light and chemical peels to give the skin a youthful appearance.

This treatment method is employed to remove wrinkles, pigmentation, scars, vascular conditions and skin tone.

Laser Facial rejuvenation: – re-grow a fresh coat of skin

This process involves exposing your skin to highly regulated and controlled laser emissions. Lasers function by focusing energy on a particular color of the spectrum. When the laser comes in contact with the color it focuses on, it produces heat that is capable of cutting the skin. This principle is used to burn the upper layers of the skin and then heat the deeper layers to entirely remove blemishes.

Laser treatment exfoliates the upper layers of the skin, taking along with it the fine wrinkles and blemishes. The laser heat denatures or breaks the collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and when it re-grows it grows tighter and better packed. Hence, a fresh skin, which is smoother and clearer, grows within a week or two.

So laser treatments are used to first burn away the top layer of the skin along with all its imperfection and then heat the deeper layer so that the collagen denatures to form a more tightly packed and clearer skin.

Photon Light therapy: – NASA has a hand in this!

What was initially an experiment by the astronauts to grow plants in space, turned into a breakthrough discovery for the beauty industry. They found that cells respond to light. Photon Light therapy is a noninvasive method wherein, timed light pulses of different wavelengths are used to stimulate the body’s healing process. Essentially, the light sets off the fibroblast activity, which in turn boosts the production of skin collagen and elastin. These collagen and elastin fibres are essential to repair damage such as wrinkles, pigmentation, sagging skin, fine lines and enlarged pores. Photon light also improves blood flow and circulation. It is a safe and painless procedure for skin problems.

Photon Laser Facial therapy: – the ideal treatment option

This treatment procedure makes use of different wavelengths of the laser;

Red 660nm: -Stimulates blood circulation, triggers collagen to get smooth and firm skin

Blue 415nm:- Helps cure the sensitive skin by killing bacteria and curing acne.

Yellow 590nm:- Improves immunity, helps stimulate lymph, nerves and muscles.

Green 512nm: – Helps cure wounds, has anti-ageing and wrinkle smoothening properties.

Purple 430nm:- Improves the lymph metabolism and is highly relaxing.

The photon laser facial therapy makes use of these wavelengths of light to enhance the skin and eradicate skin problems such as acne, wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, uneven skin tones and make the skin look young and clear.
