At Canova Medical, we believe in the power of science to transform lives. Our aesthetic clinic specializes in non-surgical treatments, laser hair removal treatments, and cosmetic procedures. One of our most popular services is laser treatments. But what exactly is the science behind these treatments? Let’s delve deeper.


The Science of Light

Laser treatments work on a fundamental principle: the science of light. Lasers are intense beams of light that can be precisely focused to small areas. The word “laser” is an acronym for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”. This might sound complicated, but the concept is relatively simple.

“In essence, a laser is a device that emits light through a process of optical amplification based on the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation.”

The Role of Lasers in Aesthetic Treatments

In the realm of aesthetic treatments, lasers play a crucial role. They are used in various procedures, from laser hair removal to laser skin tightening. But how do they work?

When the laser light is absorbed by the skin, it transforms into heat. This heat can be used to destroy specific targets in the skin, such as hair follicles in laser hair removal or collagen fibres in laser skin tightening. The precision of lasers ensures that surrounding tissues remain unharmed, making these treatments safe and effective.

The Soprano Ice Titanium: A Revolution in Laser Technology

At Canova Medical in Wilmslow, Cheshire, we use the latest technology in our laser treatments. One such technology is the Soprano Ice Titanium, a cutting-edge device that combines three laser wavelengths into a single innovative handpiece. This technology allows us to target different tissue depths within the skin, as well as anatomical structures, for improved treatment efficacy and comfort.

This is just the beginning of our journey into the science behind laser treatments. Stay tuned as we delve deeper into the technology and science that powers our non-surgical treatments and cosmetic procedures.

The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

One of the most common uses of laser technology in aesthetic treatments is hair removal. But how does laser hair removal work?

The laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

“While the principle is simple, the process requires precision and expertise. The laser must target the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin.”

The Science Behind Laser Skin Tightening

Another popular use of laser technology is in skin tightening procedures. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten).

“The beauty of laser skin tightening lies in its dual action. Not only does it promote immediate collagen contraction, but it also stimulates new collagen production, leading to a smoother, more youthful complexion over time.”

The Future of Laser Treatments

The future of laser treatments in the aesthetic industry is bright. With advancements in technology, we can expect even more precise and effective treatments. At Canova Medical, we are committed to staying at the forefront of these advancements, offering our clients the best that science and technology have to offer.
