Chronological aging and chronic sun exposure lead to changes in skin such as rhytides, telangiectasias, textural alterations, skin laxity and dyschromia. Skin resurfacing treatment can be done through ablative and nonablative method. The recovery time required and the side effects related to ablative method deter many patients from preferring ablative skin surfacing inspite of its ability to improve cutaneous aging. Cosmetic procedures are now trending towards the use of noninvasive and less radiation exposure procedures. The emergence of nonablative laser is the new therapeutic option for skin rejuvenation with abbreviated recovery time and lower risk of side effects.
Few nonablative procedures are effective in cases of the vascular changes and dyschromia in photoaged skin. Patients with moderate to mild skin laxity or rhytides are better candidates than the ones with severe manifestations as there is often a modest degree of improvement. The modalities used for skin resurfacing using nonablative procedure are vascular lasers, radiofrequency, photodynamic therapy, infrared lasers and light sources and nonablative fractional lasers.
Nonablative Laser Resurfacing Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints
The nonablative laser resurfacing market is expected to propel during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand of cosmetic procedures during the past decade and also the advances in the skin resurfacing field that enables faster healing while minimizing the side effects for patients and minimizing the procedure downtime. Moreover, several technological advances such as the introduction of radiofrequency lasers integrated with the daily clinical practices allow them to treat more patients with different skin types and pathologies.
