Endolaze -Laser

Endolaze is a minimally invasive laser procedure that results in tightening of the skin through the formation of new collagen. It involves the use of ultra-thin optical fibers with a laser tip placed under the skin (superficial hypodermis) to selectively target water and fat resulting in skin retraction, lipolysis(breakdown of fat) and reduction of skin laxity.

WHAT CAN ENDOLAZE BE USED FOR?

At Skin101, we use endolaze for the following:

  • Skin tightening
  • Laser lipolysis (laser fat removal procedure)
  • Vascular lesions such as varicose veins, spider veins, telangiectasia, cherry hemangioma, and hemorrhoid(pile), etc
  • Onychomycosis (nail fungus).

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  1. Skin Tightening:
    As we age, the body slows down on the production of two proteins (collagen and elastin) that keeps the skin firm. Endolaze tightens the skin by inducing new collagen formation, thus causing skin retraction, reduced skin laxity and, a firm tone (nonsurgical facelift).
  2. Laser lipolysis:
    The laser energy melts and removes fat cells. When in direct contact with the subcutaneous tissue, the energy released by the laser causes irreversible damage on the fat cells, in addition to heat damage to the collagen fibers in the dermis, it stimulates formation of new collagen and later, a skin-tightening effect.
  3. Onychomycosis (nail fungus) treatment:
    The effects of the laser light is spread evenly throughout the affected nail, killing the fungus and allowing a new nail to grow out in about 4 to 6 months after the treatment.
  4. For Spider Veins:
    The laser is able to stimulate the production of collagen in the dermis, increase thickness and density of the epidermis (the topmost layer of the skin), so that the tiny blood vessels are no longer visible and at the same time, the skin’s elasticity is also significantly enhanced.
  5. Laser hemorrhoidoplasty (LHP):
    The controlled emission of laser energy is applied submucosally causing the hemorrhoid (pile) to shrink. In addition, formation of new connective tissue ensures that the mucosa adheres to the underlying tissue. This also prevents the occurrence or recurrence of a prolapse.
