as an efficient prevention of photo-aging
Our physical appearance depends largely on the state of our skin. It is a very vital organ, that separates the internal environment of the organism from the external environment and blocks elements that should not leave the organism – thus, it ensures homeostasis.
Ageing skin is characterised by clearly visible morphological changes like wrinkles, pigmentation disorders, telangiectasia (small subcutaneous dilated blood vessels) and the loss of elasticity. It is the result of aging or systemic diseases). Ageing skin is a cosmetic defect.
This defect leads to unattractive appearance and functional imbalance of the organism, e.g. water-electrolyte imbalance. Aging skin impedes optimal hydration of the face and the whole body. The listed negative effects are largely results of the photo-ageing process.
The main, external factor leading to photo-ageing and the stimulation of negative neoplastic processes within the skin is the ultraviolet radiation of sunlight. It is potentiated by the ozone depletion, which decreases the natural atmospheric protection against UV radiation.
People frequenting tanning salons are especially prone to suffer from negative and harmful effects of UV light and rapid skin ageing (through an increased risk of neoplasia). A solution to these problems could be found in skin photorejuvenation. A selectively chosen wavelength and a measured dose of light is used in old skin “rejuvenation”, preventing progressive aging and treating the changes caused by aging skin. Continuous technological progress and medical research regarding light-based treatments lead to the definition of therapeutic factors and the construction of devices that are used in skin photorejuvenation. The current treatment methods employ modern medical technology to generate electromagnetic radiation that makes efficient and safe photorejuvenation possible. LED therapy has recently been proved to be efficient in cosmetology. Such treatments can be administered through the use of Viofor JPS System devices that enable the irradiation of the whole face. It is a non-invasive, safe method that allows for an even, simultaneous application of light at selected, therapeutic wavelengths – 630 and 855 nm
Positive medical and aesthetic effects of photo-rejuvenation The LED therapy activates the absorption of specific wavelength light through photo-acceptor particles. The exposure of photo-acceptor generates the production of cytotoxic singlet oxygen and cascading processes leading to photo-biomodulation. Clinical tests have proved major aesthetic improvements after the treatments.
