There may be no better reason to seek out a professional anti-aging clinic than the combination of hi-tech equipment and experienced staff members that such facilities employ. Non-surgical procedures such as IPL Photofacial, Fraxel™, and Refirme™ use heat, laser, and light energy to provide anti-aging treatments for millions of people.
Laser technology has been a key component of cosmetic skin care for many years now, but it’s been in the past 5-10 years that these procedures have truly come into their own, with advances in precision, safety, range of capabilities, and duration of results.
Heat or light energy treatments come in many forms, but generally serve the same function: heating the dermal tissue and forming new connective strands of collagen (the substance in the body that promotes youthfulness and elasticity in the skin). Some treatments, like Photorejuvenation or Photofacial, use intense pulsed light (IPL) technology to achieve this. Other laser skin rejuvenation procedures, like Fractional Laser Resurfacing (best known by the brand Fraxel™), work on a more advanced level, dividing the skin into microscopic quadrants in which the laser can work systematically. For skin tightening, many people rely on laser treatments like Titan™ or Refirme™, the latter of which uses a combination of infrared light energy and bi-polar radio frequencies to strengthen connective bonds in the skin.
Choosing the best laser, light, or heat energy cosmetic treatment depends entirely on your condition, goals, and the expert opinion of a licensed aesthetician.
