Heating the deep dermis collagen producing an increased tension of the skin and reducing wrinkles and fine lines At the level of the epidermis produces a surface ablation removal of actinic spots, solar keratosis, attenuation of the pores and reduce acne scars.
This thermal heating may occur in some patients with dark skin an hyperpigmentation or dark spots or dark areas.
This is an undesired effect reversible and transient.
Any patient who goes through this situation suffers anguish and think this will last forever.
