Laser, an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, works by targeting specific chromophores (pigmented proteins in the skin) at specific depth in the skin. Each Laser has its own objectives and the Aesthetic Physician must select the suitable Laser and its settings based on the skin type, chromophore and depth of the chromophore. Commonly used Lasers in Aesthetic Medicine for Asian skin includes:
Fractional Lasers such as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Erbium YAG targets water chromophore in the skin cells. These Lasers create microscopic thermal injuries to the skin, where the size, number and depth of this microscopic injuries or rather thermal punctures to the skin can be precisely adjusted depending on the skin type and skin condition. The punctured skin cells are replaced by a new line up of healthy cells. Repeated Treatments will eventually restore the unhealthy and aged cells with a newer layer of healthy cells.
Q-Switch, Pico and Long Pulsed Lasers at wavelengths of 532 nm, 755 nm and 1064 nm, targets specific depth and chromophores such as melanin, hemoglobin or water. The terms Q-Switch, Pico and Long Pulsed on the other hand denotes the speed of the Laser beam. The compounding effects of this Laser parameters will decide the outcome - which ranges from treating superficial pigmentation such as freckles and lentigos, to treating the deeper pigmented melasma, treating broken capillaries and rejuvenates the skin by inducing bio-stimulation. It is imperative that the Aesthetic Physician is familiar with these settings in order to achieve safe results without any undue complications.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatments are normally done once in 3 to 4 weeks on a regular basis. As the Treatments are being done, the skin will appear clearer, healthier and more radiant with less pigmentation, acne, acne marks and scars.
Fractional Laser Skin Rejuvenation is ideal to treat the face and body for several aesthetic conditions such as:
Q-Switch and Pico Lasers at 532 nm, 755 nm and 1064 nm are ideal for:
Long pulse Lasers at 755 nm and 1064 nm are ideal for:
As each Laser has its own outcome, it is imperative for the Aesthetic Physician to select the suitable Laser based on the skin type and skin condition.
Adverse effects in a Laser Skin Rejuvenation procedure includes:
The cost for Laser Skin Rejuvenation ranges from RM 600 onwards per Treatment, depending on the type of Laser and site of Treatment.
