Laser skin rejuvenation is now a crucial procedure when it comes to maintaining the beauty of your skin.
Here at Norwood Day Surgery in Adelaide we offer the ND-YAG Skin Rejuvenation laser which is a non-invasive procedure designed to enhance the appearance and texture of the skin from deep within the layers of skin.
The ND-YAG laser utilises infrared light technology to penetrate the skin. This laser is much more penetrating than IPL technology which was previously thought to be the best method of laser skin rejuvenation. The ND-YAG laser works by penetrating the pigments in the skin, as they absorb the energy of the laser. Damaged skin (pigmentation), blood and other damaged cells will absorb the infrared energy of the laser, which causes the skin to inflame. This mild inflammation then stimulates the recovery process of the skin which generates new tissue and fresh new skin cells.
The full extent of this procedure should be seen in no longer than a month, as the skin needs time to regenerate itself. During this period of renewal you should see pigmentation reducing for a more even skin tone.
The laser also provides photo rejuvenation in order to provide a younger looking appearance that is not tainted by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been to stimulate collagen induction which stimulates the body’s natural regenerative cells. These cells keep the skin taut and supple looking which is important in order to create a youthful appearance.
How many skin rejuvenation sessions do I need?
With the ND-YAG laser we recommend multiple and regular treatments. It is required that you wait a minimum of one month between treatments for the best results. This laser treatment is the perfect choice for regular skin maintenance as it is not as intense as other lasers. This procedure can be used in place of chemical peels and microdermabrasion when used regularly.
Am I a candidate for the ND-YAG skin rejuvenation laser?
The ND-YAG is perfectly suited for busy individuals who do not have much time for skin rejuvenation in their busy lifestyle. It’s often these busy individuals who are also most commonly plagued by the symptoms of stress which can include fine lines and wrinkles, as well as overall skin dullness. If you have any of the following symptoms of ageing then you may benefit from a laser treatment:
- Freckles or pigmentation
- Fine lines and small wrinkles on the skin
- Dullness of the skin
- Skin that has slackened with age
This procedure can also be performed at any age and on darker skin types.
