There is no doubt that laser light used within a specific range of wavelengths (600nm to 800nm) produces incredibly beneficial effects on the skin and has become a popular choice for laser facials in London. Different types or class of laser achieves very different results. This article explores the incredible effect that Low Level Laser (LLLT) also known as cold laser, has on the skin. Therapeutic laser offers a really good option for a non-thermal, non ablative laser facial, which simply rejuvenates.
So what is a Therapeutic Laser Facial?
Therapeutic lasers are different to surgical lasers, because they do not create heat or cause an ablation of the skin’s surface. Class 3b or Therapeutic Class 4 Lasers, are often referred to as Cold Laser or Low Level Laser. They may create a slight increase of heat in the skin, but are not associated with burns or ablation. Instead, Therapeutic Laser Facials benefit from a chain of biological process in the skin cells (and deeper) which is known as Photobiomodulation or Red Light Therapy (RLT). It produces the best results for natural skin rejuvenation, because of two major processes:
- An increased production of collagen and elastin in the epidermis.
- An increased production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) or energy within cell mitochondria.
How does therapeutic laser work?
A biological response within the skin reduces the visible signs of ageing and maintains optimum skin health. The process encourages production of fresh new cells and their appearance at the skin’s surface. In other words after a course of laser facials, the skin starts to behave like younger skin. Therapeutic Laser is great for healing other conditions such as wound healing, acne and dermititis.
During a laser facial treatment, coherent beams of light smooth over the face and neck. We also focus on facial acupuncture points to stimulate a ‘lifting’ of the face’s contour in key areas, and to cleanse toxins. Laser facials replenish and protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier, are proven to increase collagen synthesis, are great for dark circles and over time, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser facials leave your skin supple, radiant and youthful .
