Metro    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There are many ways to give your skin a boost and although using an electrical current might not be one way that immediately springs to mind, bioelectricity in skincare products is a new technology making its way from across the pond.

Low levels of bioelectricity are generated by the injured tissue, producing extra elastin and collagen to rejuvenate and repair the area. More

Dermatology Times via Modern Medicine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With the introduction of the diode pumped fiber lasers in the last decade, new laser wavelengths are now hitting the market. Laser resurfacing has seen resurgence over the past five years with the introduction of new wavelengths and fractional delivery systems. Introduced last year, the newest of the fiber lasers is the diode-pumped thulium laser, which emits a wavelength of 1,927 nanometers. At the infrared wavelength of 1,927 nanometers, this laser uses water as its skin chromophore. Having water as a target classifies this new thulium laser as a resurfacing device by dermatology standards.
