Skin Rejuvenation & Collagen Renewal

Click here to view B&A Pictures.

Skin rejuvenation can be divided into several categories; the removal of pigmented lesions, the removal of vascular lesions, the improvement of skin texture and tone, and the smoothing of lines and wrinkles. A comprehensive skin rejuvenation treatment may simultaneously include several of these goals. Although LHE employs a singular treatment type for all skin rejuvenation elements, the underlying processes that bring about the results are different. LHE’s optimal balance of light and heat enables you to accomplish this multi-factorial process without having to change treatment heads.

Collagen Renewal & Wrinkle Reduction

The LHE effect on skin texture is based on the stimulation of new collagen growth that will help replenish and even out the shrunken dermis layer. Tone and texture improve and fine lines and wrinkles fade as collagen rebuilds.

 

PC3-Green LHE creates a mild thermal insult to the dermal/epidermal junction.

“LHE phototherapy has shown an excellent safety profile for skin types I through VI, and consistent results for pigmented and vascular lesions, primarily with reduction of unwanted pigment and improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.”

PC5 The thermal trauma triggers a wound-heal response and new collagen remodels under the undamaged layer.

Near and mid infrared wavelengths (700 and above) are directly absorbed by intra and extracellular water. The resulting mild thermal insult to the papillary and upper reticular dermis leads to fibroblast activation. Fibroblasts are the cells of connective tissue responsible for making the collagen and elastin fiber cells found in the connective tissue of the dermis.

The creation of new collagen and connective material caused by the thermal insult and subsequent fibroblast activation occurs over a period of a few weeks to a few months. This wound healing response leads to improvement in skin texture and the smoothing of fine lines.
