Improving the appearance of aging skin by reducing wrinkles and skin laxity has always been a goal. The method works by using high power microsecond pulses at high repetition rates to safely heat the dermis (deeper layer of skin) activating the body’s wound repair response, stimulation of fibroblast activity, and collagen reformation. A unique microsecond non-ablative 1064-nm Nd:YAG laser is a safe treatment method of skin rejuvenation.
A true sensitive skin condition is caused by a genetic predisposition. Someone who is truly sensitive is born with this condition and tends to be prone to blushing, asthma and allergies. This skin is considered more delicate with less melanin or pigment, a thin epidermis and blood vessels close to the skin surface, hence the obvious appearance of redness. Sensitive skin is often the result of a defect in the skin’s protective outer layer – known as the epidermal lipid barrier layer – allowing irritants, microbes and allergens to penetrate the skin and cause adverse reactions. A disturbed epidermal lipid barrier is an important component in several inflammatory skin diseases such as rosacea, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema.
