Although ageing is a natural process, people have sought ways to reverse it throughout history. Nothing much has changed in the name of rejuvenation and the desire to look younger, both 2000 years ago and today. Even today, with the increase in technological developments, the desire to rejuvenate and look younger is especially in demand by women.
Due to factors such as genetic factors, stress, sun, insomnia, working conditions and eating habits, the skin ages, however, the skin constantly renews itself and repairs the effects of aging. Of course, after a certain age, the repair rate in cells slows down. Collagen production of the skin decreases, and with the loss of elastic fibres in the connective tissue that forms the support layer of the skin, signs of ageing such as skin loosening, wrinkles, sunspots, and gradual thinning of the skin appear.
It is a treatment method based on the principle of increasing the collagen production here by turning the laser beams into heat as a result of the complete scanning of the skin with laser beams. Collagen production provides the formation of new connective tissue along with it. This gives the skin a taut, lively appearance.

At the end of 1 – 2 weeks, the skin returns to normal completely.
