Non-ablative photorejuvenation is a modern cosmetic technology that improves the appearance and condition of the skin.
The medical effect of a laser can be ablative, based on the destruction of the surface layers of the skin, or non-ablative, in which heating and, possibly, targeted destruction of deeper tissues is achieved without damaging the surface layers. Classical methods of laser cosmetology are ablative technologies - skin resurfacing, scar tissue removal. However, modern lasers can stimulate positive changes in the skin without significant damage. Such influences are actively used to achieve an effect called photorejuvenation. Under the influence of a specially created ("enhanced") light beam - hence the word "photo" smooths out small and medium wrinkles, improves complexion, restores elasticity and smoothness of the skin; skin aging stops.
With non-ablative photorejuvenation, the microbeam penetrates the tissues to the required depth (up to 3 mm). Passing through the epidermis (surface layer of the skin), the beam does not interact with it. In the deeper layers of the dermis, which are the target (target) of penetration, under the influence of a light beam, a large number of young collagen molecules are produced - a protein that forms the basis of connective tissue and is responsible for its strength and elasticity. The energy of the laser pulse warms up all layers of the skin, contributing to the improvement of microcirculation.
The best result is achieved in young and middle-aged people, that is, the method is most effective for correcting the first signs of skin aging (from 30-35 years old). This is due to the fact that the effect of the laser includes the reactive forces of the organism itself, and age reduces their activity.

The result is noticeable even after one procedure (appears after 3-4 weeks). The course of laser rejuvenation usually consists of 3-10 procedures. The break between procedures should be 1 month.
