It involves dye assisted targeting of the sebaceous glands on the facial or trunkal skin to provide a permanent solution for acne. Most of the acne solutions currently available only provide a symptomatic cure for acne. However, laser acne treatment goes to the root of the problem & gives a very effective cure for the problem of acne.
Acne is caused when the passage of oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands gets blocked. For effective acne treatments, it is important to reduce the amount of oily substances produced and also important to enlarge the passages by which these oily substances get removed to the skin surface.
Laser Acne Treatments involves the use of a special FDA approved photosensitizing dye, which penetrates into the sebaeous glands and the passages that lead from the sebaceous glands to the skin. Laser application, using a specially matched laser, then causes local heating of the dye, which in turn causes a shrinking of the sebaceous glands & enlargement of the passages. Both the effects contribute to a wonderful cure for acne, visible within days.
Laser Hair Removal works by the selective targeting of hair follicles in the skin with a laser. The laser’s wavelength and pulse width characteristics are determined in a manner in which the hair follicle is heated and therefore damaged/destroyed, while there is no damage to adjacent skin structures. Thus, we select a wavelength which gets absorbed in melanin (the pigment which gives hair its colour) and a pulse width which is short enough to heat up the hair follicle without the heat up the hair follicle without the heat being lost b diffusion, and long enough to allow the surrounding skin to lose heat absorbed by thermal diffusion.
To get permanent hair removal, (as opposed to long growth delays). It is important to also target those areas of the skin where new hair follicle growth gets initiated. Newlook has unique laser technology, which also targets these areas, and damages them. Thus, there is the real possibility of permanent hair removal embedded in our technology.
Because laser hair removal targets only growing hair follicles, we can only destroy about 20% of the hair follicles in any one session. Thus, laser hair removal requires several sessions for complete hair removal.
