Laser Rejuvenation – LASER stands for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”.
LASER stands for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”.
Laser Rejuvenation, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of light to address various skin concerns. This innovative technique works by targeting specific skin layers, stimulating collagen production, and promoting cellular renewal. Resulting a refreshed and revitalized complexion that radiates youthful beauty.
Laser Rejuvenation offers a plethora of benefits that make it an attractive option for those seeking to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. From reducing fine lines and wrinkles to erasing age spots and acne scars, laser treatments can address a wide range of skin imperfections. By harnessing the power of light, this remarkable procedure can help you achieve the following benefits:
Light travels in waves consisting of different wavelengths, e.g. visible light around us has a wavelength range of 400-750 nm. If you break down the range of wavelength, you will see multiple wavelengths represented by different colors (the phenomenon of rainbow).
Different from normal day light (unfiltered), laser travels in a single wavelength (after filtration), which will be absorbed specifically by its target (chromophore). In other words, laser light will only be absorbed by its chromophore. There are 3 main chromophores in the skin namely: melanin, hemoglobin and water.
Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin, hair and eyes their colours. Sun exposure and hormonal changes increase the melanin production in the skin, leading to pigmentation. Targeting melanin chromophore, laser is being absorbed and the heat from the laser ‘melts’ the melanin/pigment.
Hemoglobin is a component of blood, which contributes to facial flushing, fine capillaries and certain birthmarks. Laser targeting hemoglobin chromophore will coagulate small blood vessels and reduce the unwanted facial redness.
Water is the main component of skin cell and tissue. Laser that targets water chromophore (e.g. CO2 laser) can induce destruction of scar tissues with the aim of rebuilding new skin cells. This is effective in treating acne scars and large pores.
Traditional laser emits waves in nanosecond and Pico laser in picosecond is 1000 times faster!
Pico laser technology uses ultra-short picosecond pulses to shatter and eliminate pigmentation that causes dark circles and sun spots, while also stimulating collagen to refresh and rejuvenate the delicate skin around the eyes.
Pico laser technology can safely and effectively resurface the skin, reducing the appearance of acne scars and enlarged pores by targeting pigmentation and promoting new collagen formation through non-invasive picosecond pulses.
Pico laser technology offers a fast, efficient method for removing unwanted tattoos by using ultra-short picosecond pulses to shatter tattoo pigment particles, gradually fading them away without damaging the surrounding skin.
Due to its high speed and ultra-short pulse duration of the laser shock wave, it shatters the target pigment while minimizing the conversion of energy into heat, which subsequently reduces the risk of overheating (pigment may flare up under heat). It also allows a higher volume of laser shots to be fired in a given time which delivers a more effective treatment per session.
No. Laser energy is being converted into heat in the skin which will not cause skin peeling or thinning. Moreover, outer skin layer regenerates continuously and sheds every 30-40 days.
Generally, once a month is adequate. Some stubborn pigment condition such as melasma may require more frequent treatments e.g. every 2 weeks with a lower energy setting.
All brands of Pico machine have similar speed of laser pulse. What differ among them are the peak power and the wavelength. Pico Plus is superior because it has one of highest peak power (1.8 GW) with 4 wavelengths (532, 595, 660, 1064 nm), which can treat a wide variety of skin related problems.
No, there is no downtime for Pico rejuvenation. Temporary redness will disappear within an hour and you can go back to office or resume exercise on the same day.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) uses broadband light pulses consisting of a range of wavelengths (500-1200 nm), whereas laser uses single wavelength. Laser is more target specific whereas IPL covers all layers of skin. IPL is useful for general toning and rejuvenation whereas laser is safer in darker skin, more efficient in treating pigments, tattoos and scars.
Clarity II laser is a multipurpose laser with dual wavelength which can safely and effectively treat unwanted hair, pigment and vascular lesions in all skin types.
Clarity II provides higher pulse energy & power to support higher rep rates with larger spots that directly lead to better efficacy and faster treatment time, especially for laser hair removal.
Clarity II’s proprietary IntelliTrak and real-time Temperature Sensing delivers consistent efficacious treatment coverage and confidently inform treatment endpoints.
Clarity emits a laser beam of 2 wavelengths that travels through the skin & cause hair follicle growth cells to inhibit further hair growth in a quicker and more effective way for all skin tones.
Clarity's laser energy targets unwanted pigment in the upper layers of skin to greatly reduce or eliminate it for all skin tones - including Age spots, freckles, birthmarks and other types of benign pigmented lesions.
Clarity uses laser energy that is absorbed by the blood vessels and converted to heat, which shrinks them to greatly reduce or eliminate their appearance - including Rosacea, facial veins, spider veins and broken capillaries.
Treatment has minimal to no pain.
For Hair Removal, most patients experience a mild ‘snapping’ on the skin as the laser is moved over the treatment area. Clarity has a specialized cooling system that provides a more comfortable treatment.
For Hair Removal, most patients need at least 5 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart for optimal results.
No, there is little to no downtime. You should be able to return to normal activities and wear makeup right away.
Depending on the results that you’re looking to achieve, our doctor will work with you to determine the number of treatments you will need.
