- Fine lines and wrinkles occur as our connective tissues (collagen and elastin) breakdown. The wrinkles occur as we lose the structure and support within our skin. The 1540nm Erbium:Glass laser stimulates neo-collagenesis (production of new collagen fibers) leading to the reduction of skin irregularities.
- Scars result from violation of the protective barrier of the skin. The disruption in the skin can result from surgical wounds, trauma, or inflammatory processes such as acne. Scars result from disorganized collagen fibers that are rapidly laid down to protect the underlying tissue. The 1540nm Erbium:Glass laser helps to create more organized collagen, hence reducing the appearance of scars.
- Melasma results from unknown causes, but estrogen and progesterone sensitivity are associated with melasma. Stress and thyroid disease are also thought be a cause of melasma. The 1540 nm Eribum:Glass laser has been proven to improve the severity of melasma. There are also several topical treatments and other means to reduce the severity of melasma.
After the procedure, the skin will appear mildly red, swollen and warm for about 3-4 days. With the Cynosure Icon™ 1540 nm Erbium: Glass XD/XF, most patients can return to their daily activities immediately. Several sessions are often needed to obtain desired results in Potomac-Travilah MD.
