Skin aging is an inevitable and natural process. It starts around the age of 25, but can only really be seen later. The skin aging process can be slowed down with the right laser treatments.
What happens during the skin ageing process?
Skin aging takes place on multiple levels in the skin. The epidermis becomes thinner, making it more vulnerable to external damage. The skin can also become drier by decreasing the number of sebaceous glands.
In the dermis, the number and quality of collagen and elastin decreases. As a result, the skin loses firmness and weakens. Due to the decrease in collagen and elastin, wrinkles and folds are created.
The rate and extent to which the skin ages is partly determined by heredity and partly by external factors that can accelerate the skin aging process. Exposure to sunlight and tanning beds, smoking and air pollution can affect the skin aging process.
Laser treatment at Huid & Laser Utrecht
The skin aging process cannot be stopped. However, we can slow down this process with various laser treatments.
At Huid & Laser Utrecht we work with multiple types of fractional lasers, such as a Co2, Erbium-YAG and the Erbium-Glass laser. For the best result, a combination of the lasers is often very effective. The lasers work at different levels in the skin, so that the skin aging process can be tackled at every level. The fractional lasers can slow down the skin aging process by strongly stimulating collagen production.
SkinCeuticals products for skin aging
The daily use of SkinCeuticals skin care products are very important to optimize and maintain the result of the treatment. Every day, a SkinCeuticals antioxidant under the day cream with an SPF should be used to minimize harmful external influences. These harmful influences cause a breakdown of collagen production. We advise you to first make an appointment for a no-obligation consultation, so that the skin therapist can advise you on which products are the best for your skin.
