The skin on our bodies can regenerate itself into old age, but sometimes it lacks the right stimulus.
This can be provided by fractional lasers: With individual rays of collimated light, they penetrate the uppermost layers of the skin and create micro-injury points at a depth within the skin. The surrounding, undamaged tissue is stimulated to produce new cells and thus fresh collagen. At the same time, the destroyed cells are carried away. The effect: The skin regenerates from within and appears younger and fresher.
