Mechanism of action

To understand how it works foraktsionny laser, we must remember the structure of the skin. It consists of three main layers - the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat. The epidermis contains cells that produce pigment - melanocytes which are responsible for color. The dermis consists mostly of collagen and elastin that provide the skin its strength and elasticity.

With aging, the appearance and characteristics of the skin changes, the epidermis becomes thinner, it spots appear; collagen in the dermis is gradually reduced, causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Divided into many thin ray fractional laser acts on small areas of the skin in its different layers - they are called mikrotermalnoy zones. Within each zone mikrotermalnoy destroyed the old pigmented cells of the epidermis and collagen production is stimulated.
