Special Issue Introduction
In this special issue, a broad spectrum of topics refers to medical lasers used for facial and body rejuvenation.
In the last few years technologically more and more advanced lasers have been developed and those have allowed clinicians to obtain increasingly satisfactory clinical results.
For the face, ablative and non-ablative surface lasers allow skin rejuvenation. Among these, the Co2 laser and the fractionated erbium laser allow a reduction in the thickness of the epidermis and the superficial dermis. The diode laser allows a bio-stimulation of the superficial and deep layer of the dermis. With these systems, results can be obtained on the aging of the skin, the treatment of scars and skin blemishes.
Furthermore, the depth lasers allow a rejuvenation of the subcutaneous tissue and also the facial muscle. Among these, in recent years micro-focused ultrasounds have been developed and have been proved to allow the stimulation of endogenous collagen.
For the body, lasers allow the treatment of pathologies that are widespread, such as cellulite, stretch marks and allow the tissue to be toned.
