Aging causes a number of visible changes to the skin. Often the skin shows fine wrinkles, decreased elasticity, and a coarse texture. The skin can also show pigmentation and unsightly veins (couperose).
There are several methods through which we can significantly counteract these aging effects. The skin will rejuvenate, the pores will refine, and the skin will strengthen and refresh.
Once we have reached 30 years of age, the skin will no longer form new collagen. As such the skin will visibly age. The skin slackens, grows thinner and becomes less elastic. The fat tissue also decreases. Sunlight and smoking accelerate the aging of the skin.
Our laser specialists have the possibility to rejuvenate the skin with IPL & laser, fractional therapy, LED therapy, and radiofrequency. All methods stimulate the production of collagen and thus counteract the effects of skin aging.
Most of the times a combination of these treatment methods provides an optimal result. As every skin is different, our laser specialists will compile the most suited treatment plan for you.
Deep wrinkles are difficult to treat with these methods. For these it may be necessary to use Botox® and/or fillers.
Besides stimulating the production of collagen, our treatments also stimulate the local bloodstream in the skin. Waste materials are drained faster and better and the skin receives better access to oxygen and nutrients. After the treatment the skin will also keep on producing collagen for a few months, thus extending the rejuvenation.
External factors such as smoking and exposure to sunlight can however damage the skin again. Hereditary factors and the regular aging of the skin will also keep playing a part.
In order to maintain the improved skin quality we advise a regular follow-up treatment. The use of nourishing creams and serums, in combination with sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) shall also counteract the aging of the skin.
Over 20 years of experience
Medisch Laser Centrum has over 20 years of experience with the improvement and rejuvenation of the skin through IPL and laser treatments. Our specialists work with the latest Ellipse IPL (Nordlys), the Venus Viva, the Q-Switched Ruby, the Q-Switched YAG, the Erbium YAG, the Accent XL, and the LED Therapy Mask.
IPL and Laser
With the Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) we can significantly improve aging effects such as pigmentation, couperose and the texture of the skin. The skin absorbs the energy of the IPL and as a result the pores refine, the skin refreshes, and red veins (couperose) and pigmentation fade. The IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, which rejuvenates the skin.
Usually 2 to 5 treatments are required for an optimal result. Most of the times the skin already shows a significant improvement after 2 treatments. In between treatments needs to be a period of 4 weeks.
In case you decide to undergo a skin rejuvenation treatment it is important that the skin is as light as possible. It is therefore advised to avoid sunlight as much as possible 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after the treatment.
Electromagnetic radiowaves generate sensible heat in the skin. A radiofrequency treatment stimulates the production of collagen and thus counteracts the effects of skin aging. Radiofrequency also strengthens the skin.
Our laser specialists use the Accent XL and the Venus Viva for this treatment. The Venus Viva combines the radiofrequency with magnetic pulses and thus stimulates the production of collagen deeper. The Venus Viva also allows for the treatment of the skin with fractional therapy.
Fractional therapy is a good method to rejuvenate the skin. Fine lines, slacked skin and irregularities such as acne scars can be significantly improved with this method.
With fractional therapy miniscule holes are carefully created in the skin. This forces the skin to rejuvenate and form new collagen. For this rejuvenation method our specialists use the Erbium YAG and the Venus Viva.
The Erbium YAG affects the moisture in the skin and evaporates the upper skin layers through a fractional laser beam. When a laser beam is fractionated it is divided into many tiny laser beams. As such the fractional laser creates controlled miniscule holes in the skin, which in turn forces the skin to recover and rejuvenate.
Apart from radiofrequency the Venus Viva can also be used for fractional needling therapy. This method reaches less deep into the skin than the Erbium YAG, which causes the recovery time to be extremely low.
The LED Therapy Mask was originally developed by NASA to accelerate the healing of wounds. LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repares skin tissue. As such LED light is well suited for skin rejuvenation and general improvement of the skin. This treatment also works well against active acne.
LED Therapy can also be used in combination with other facial treatments for an accelerated effect. The LED Therapy Mask also increases the permeability of the skin, which causes nourishing creams and serums to work more effectively.
Skin rejuvenation treatments start at € 70,-
