Your skin contains multiple layers. Just below the outer layer (epidermis) is the middle layer of the skin (dermis), where collagen helps form a fibrous network upon which new cells can grow. This layer has blood vessels, nerves, and hair follicles, but it’s mostly made up of collagen, which is required in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells. Collagen is a key support structure in your skin, with its network of fibres that provides a framework for the growth of cells and blood vessels. Collagen also is found in cartilage, teeth, and bones. Some collagen also functions as a protective covering for delicate organs in the body such as the kidneys.
There are numerous different types of collagen (at least 16 types), but 80% to 90% of collagen in the body belongs to types I, II, and III. Type I collagen is stronger than steel, gram for gram.
Medical science has acknowledged the value of this natural protein, and surgeons now use an assortment of collagen filler to improve the contours of the skin, fill out depressions, and replenish volume in the face.
The laser damages collagen beneath your skin and stimulates the growth of new collagen, tightening underlying skin and improving skin tone and appearance. No skin is removed. Nonablative laser resurfacing typically takes between 15 minutes and 1 1/2 hours, depending on the technique used and size of the area treated.
Laser energy, radio frequency, and ultrasound all work by creating a controlled injury to the skin that sets a wound-healing response into high gear. This spurs collagen formation and cell regeneration, and firms and plumps the skin.
Laser resurfacing can be used for,Wrinkles, Age spots, Uneven skin tone or texture, Sun-damaged skin, Scars. It smooths the complexion with no Downtime or discomfort.
Mechanism of Action
As we grow older, the level of collagen in our skin significantly reduces resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Laser collagen rejuvenation minimizes the appearance of such lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen. This entails delivering energy to the skin using an intense beam of light. Some of the areas that can be treated using the laser skin rejuvenation include wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth, hands, legs, chest and around the abdomen. Unlike collagen injections, this procedure is painless and requires minimum recovery time. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treats discoloration like freckles and rosacea, and uses a wide spectrum of light wavelengths in high-intensity pulses.
The treatment for collagen rejuvenation highly differs from collagen injections. Before laser collagen rejuvenation treatment commences, our expert dermatologist will first review and help you through all the pre-treatment requirements, via a cosmetic consultation. During the treatment, we will ask you to remove your make-up. After this, you will be lie down and put on special goggles that will protect your eyes. This will be followed by passing a laser beam over the area requiring treatment.
During the treatment, you will might feel a mild tingling sensation as the beam of light becomes absorbed by the skin. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the entire procedure can last from a few minutes to a half hour. In addition, the collagen procedure is safe and leaves no visible signs on the surface of the skin.
Increasing Collagen Production with Laser Light Therapy. The growth of collagen, elastin, and melanin can all be stimulated through laser therapy, involving intense wavelengths of light and ultrasound. Collagen levels deplete naturally over time, and there is no way to prevent this inevitable process of ageing.
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive treatment to consider if you'd like to tighten loose or sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face, neck, and body.
To see optimum results, clinicians recommend a course of approximately six treatments, every four to six weeks. Skin tightening will continue to work up to 12 weeks post-treatment, so the skin will continue to improve for a number of months once you've completed six sessions.
It is strongly recommend you take collagen as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, in conjunction with other supplements as necessary. The body takes approximately four months to replace damaged muscle and skin tissue with new, healthy cells.
Medications. Topical retinoids. Derived from vitamin A, retinoids — such as tretinoin (Renova, Retin-A) and tazarotene (Avage, Tazorac) — that you apply to your skin may reduce fine wrinkles, splotches and skin roughness.
Laser collagen rejuvenation treatments are fast, about 30 minutes for a full facial treatment, and are safe leaving no visible signs on the skin surface. This is because, unlike collagen injections, the laser works on the lower section of the skin surface where collagen production occurs. As a result, you can have a treatment during your lunch break and return to work with no visible signs of treatment. Over the next three months, you will notice a gradual reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles as the collagen levels increase. We recommend a package of 5 treatments scheduled every 4-6 weeks for maximum results with continued maintenance as needed.
Infection. Nonablative laser resurfacing can cause a flare-up of the herpes virus.
Changes in skin color. If you have tanned or darker skin, nonablative laser resurfacing can cause your skin to become temporarily darker (hyperpigmentation).
Mild swelling and redness. Swelling and redness typically last only hours or days.
Blistering and scarring. Rarely, nonablative laser resurfacing can cause blistering and scarring.
Laser resurfacing isn't for everyone. Your doctor might caution against laser resurfacing if you:
- Have active acne
- Have taken the acne medication isotretinoin (Amnesteem, Claravis) during the previous year
- Have an autoimmune disease or a weak immune system
- Have a tendency to form scars
- Have very dark skin
- Have Superior expectations
Nutrients that may support collagen formation include:
- Proline: found in egg whites, meat, cheese, soy, and cabbage
- Anthocyanidins: found in blackberries, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries
- Vitamin C: found in oranges, strawberries, peppers, and broccoli
- Copper: can be found in shellfish, nuts, red meat, and some drinking water
- Vitamin A: found in animal-derived foods and in plant foods as beta-carotene
