As a result of the intensive heating of the water in the skin, water reaches the evaporation point then creates micro-damages of collagen and fractional break in the skin. The stream of pulses emitted from the laser is split into thousands of tiny streams of high energy particles that penetrates the skin up to a depth greater than 2 mm, which is deep in the dermis. As a result, quickly followed by the regeneration process with the synthesis of new collagen and elastin fibers. The tissue at the site produced micro wounds is removed, there is a significant effect of tension and lifting the skin.
