The adage goes, ‘Your face is marked with lifelines, put there by love and laughter, suffering and tears. It’s beautiful’. While this is a great quote, the reality is that we place a great degree of importance on our looks, and as we age, time begins to take a toll on us.
As we age, we tend to lose our ‘youthful good’ looks; our skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles begin to form, our acne and scars start to become more pronounced, the formation of the smile lines and even the texture of our skin begins to change as it dries up.
We have, as a society, consistently placed a significant amount of emphasis on our looks. While it is essential that we also value what is inside, our outward appearance plays a massive role in our confidence and self-esteem. It directly plays an enormous role in how we exhibit ourselves.
Thankfully with the advent of aesthetic clinics, we now can arrest the decline of ageing. With multiple facial skin rejuvenation and acne treatments, we are now controlling our appearance, as evidenced by the flourishing aesthetic industry.
Speaking of the industry, the Edge Fractional CO2 Laser treatment has emerged as the torchbearer and the market leader for skin rejuvenation treatments. This popular treatment has been gaining traction both in Singapore and worldwide.
Before we get into the benefits of the treatment above, let’s look at skin’s role and what happens to it when we age.
What the skin does for you and what happens to it when we age
It may come as a surprise to some, but the skin is the biggest organ in the human body. It is composed of protein, fats, water and minerals. The skin consists of three layers: the epidermis the top layer. The dermis, the middle layer and finally the hypodermis, the bottom or fatty layer. Each layer plays a part in body protection and overall maintenance.
The top skin layer thins as we age, even though the cell layers remain unchanged. Several pigmentation types may appear in sun-exposed areas, including age spots or “liver spots”. The medical term for these areas is lentigos. Elastosis, the changes in the connective tissue, reduces the skin’s strength and elasticity.
As we age, we are also at increased risk for skin damage. The skin becomes frail and fragile, and we also lose some protective fat layers. Though it may seem alarming, rest assured that the Edge Fractional CO2 Laser is now around to help us stop and improve our skin condition.
Why is the Edge Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment so revolutionary?
The Edge Fractional CO2 Laser produces a high peak power for sustained periods. When used in traditional non-fractionated scanner mode, it can be utilised for performing incision, excision, ablation, vaporisation, and coagulation of soft body tissues.
The Edge CO2 Fractional laser helps us get smoother skin and a reduction of skin pores. It is a stark contrast when compared to the conventional resurfacing lasers. The Fractional CO2 laser is revolutionising the treatment of multiple skin issues by significantly reducing the need for downtime, and as such, it won’t encroach into our lifestyles and schedules.
Apart from being an effective method of skin rejuvenation, the Fractional CO2 laser is also an excellent treatment for patients who suffer from severe sun damage, deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone and dry texture, and acne scars. In all, this treatment is an excellent way for those afflicted to be assured that they will get the gold standard in the industry that will aid the clients to achieve the results that they so desire.
