Mosaic Total Skin Rejuvenation treatment is a fractional laser technology that is popularly used in the cosmetic field to address wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun damaged skin and acne scars.
It uses Controlled Chaos Technology or CCT to medically induce the skin’s natural healing process and reveal rejuvenated skin.
Some people are blessed with healthy-looking skin, while others are unlucky to have several skin conditions that cause stressful, and sometimes, embarrassing social stigma.
If you are one of those who struggle with skin problems like acne and acne scars, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone brought about by unwanted skin pigmentation and age-related skin conditions, like fine lines and wrinkles, looking for a treatment that can address all of these at the same time may be thought of as hard to come by.
Mosaic Total Skin Rejuvenation is a safe and reliable skin rejuvenation treatment for Asians despite the sensitivity to pigmentation.
Step 1. The Mosaic Total Skin Rejuvenation laser systems treats skin by creating a mosaic of microscopic wounds to stimulate the rejuvenation process without damaging or harming the surface skin.
Step 2. These wounds are inflicted beneath the surface of the skin. This causes the layers underneath to start the natural healing process and encourages the skin to repair itself. It stimulates the regeneration and growth of collagen and elastin in your skin making it tighter and youthful-looking.
The reparative process is what makes Mosaic Total Skin Rejuvenation an effective treatment for people with fine lines, mild wrinkles and skin laxity.
The procedure is also particularly useful as an acne reduction treatment, as the laser polishes down the depressions caused by acne. The stimulation of new collagen formation beneath the scar tissues causes it to regenerate and evens out the skin tone and texture (Ibrahim et.al., 2014).
Similarly, this is an effective treatment for keloid and hypertrophic scar reduction and stretch mark reduction. Also, it helps to improve the healing time of acne and the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
After the treatment, you will be able to immediately return to your daily activities. However, there will be redness and minor swelling after the treatment, which will subside after 2 to 3 days. The skin will also be pinkish for about a week, which requires ample care from exposure to the sun. A few post-treatment instructions should also be followed for the first 4 weeks after the procedure.
The cost for the Mosaic Total Skin Rejuvenation System will depend on what areas will be targeted, and the number of sessions needed to achieve the desired results.
Our resident specialist, Dr. Tyng Tan, will make a thorough evaluation of your skin condition during your confidential consultation to properly recommend the number of sessions needed to give your skin another fresh start.
