Can Diode Laser Burn the Collagen or Help to Regenerate It?

Diode laser cannot help regenerate collagen - try Thermage
No, a Diode laser does not burn or regenerate collagen. If you are searching for a way to increase collagen in the skin, the industry standard is a Thermage treatment for skin tightening and rejuvenation. We have been seeing great results with the new CPT (Comfort Pulse Technology) from Thermage, and even better results when combined with a Fractional treatment before. Thermage is a non-surgical, one-time treatment with no downtime that actually stimulated collagen regeneration.
When you are ready to undergo any esthetic procedure, it is best to have a consultation with a board certified cosmetic doctor or dermatologist who you trust. They will give you the honest answers for your unique situation (your starting point, your objectives and your budget).
At the Victoria Park Medispa, we take off the consultation fee from any appointment booked, therefore reducing a client’s risk of having a treatment performed without taking the time to think about what they really want. Any esthetic tool needs to be in the right hands, to achieve the best possible results.
Diode laser for collagen tightening
A diode is not the ideal wavelength to stimulate collagen growth. There are many lasers out there that do this much better. Sometimes lasers get overpromised and this would be the case for using a diode laser to try to stimulate collagen. what is it good for and designed for originally is for hair removal so this is where it should be focused. Other lasers will do much better such as erbium yag, co2, or infrared lasers.
