At the clinic, you will be able to get the following aesthetic and medical laser treatments:
IPL (intense pulsed light) and near infrared lasers are effective in the treatment of facial erythema and telangiectasia.
Intense pulsed light uses the principle of selective photothermolysis in the treatment of vascular skin lesions. The treatment results in the selective coagulation of superficial vessels without further damage to the skin and has proven effective in the treatment of vascular lesions such as telangiectasias.
According to a series of studies conducted on the IPL treatment of telangiectasia and skin erythema associated with rosacea, there is significant improvement in the clinical course of the rosacea, a decrease in the response to the triggering factors and a decrease in the rate of relapses during a 2-year period of post-treatment monitoring.
Usually, 3 to 5 twenty-minute treatment sessions at intervals of 3 to 4 weeks are required. It should be noted that IPL has the advantage of covering larger areas of skin, requires less time and is more likely to be tolerated well by the patients. In addition, IPL therapy helps reduce pigmentation, eliminate fine lines as well as smooth and firm the skin.
Laser Genesis is a near infrared (NIR) Nd:YAG laser with a wavelength of 1064 nm. Studies have proven that NIR irradiation is effective for skin rejuvenation because of its ability to provide long-term stimulation of collagen and elastin production, which clinically improves skin tone and texture.
In addition, Laser Genesis’ thermal energy targets the tiny vessels and capillaries that cause persistent redness in the skin, like in conditions such as rosacea. By breaking down these vessels, blood trapped below the surface of the skin is dissipated, reducing overall redness.
The primary mechanism for treatment is nonablative dermal remodeling (NDR), a recently developed procedure, alternatively called non-ablative skin rejuvenation or subsurfacing, that does not disrupt the epidermis and is a better tolerated alternative to ablative laser resurfacing.
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure that usually only takes 15 to 20 minutes. There is no need for anesthesia as it is a painless procedure that only causes a gentle, warm sensation.
Also, no downtime is required with this laser.
It is generally recommended to receive between 3 and 10 Laser Genesis treatments at intervals of approximately 4 weeks. It is important to keep in mind that although the therapy can last several months, you do not have to deal with the inconvenience of downtime and recovery after each procedure.
Scars lighten partially over time, but the laser helps heal and reduce redness in the scars, including the redness in surgical scars. It normally takes up to a year for redness from a surgical incision to clear up on its own. Laser Genesis effectively reduces the redness of these scars much sooner. It’s also a very good treatment for patients with dark marks left by acne.
The procedure involves wave penetration into the dermal layer, where collagen and elastin activity occurs, causing nonablative dermal remodeling.
A series of four to six sessions is recommended. Collagen remodeling takes time, so you need to give it time to work its magic.
When you come to the clinic for a consultation, we will give you a treatment plan tailored to your needs. Sessions can be repeated every two weeks, but you may be required to extend the period between sessions.
Most patients are eligible for laser therapy but there are some restrictions. This form of therapy is generally not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Theoretically, patients who are prescribed Accutane for severe acne or using topical skin cancer creams are not ideal candidates for laser therapy.
You will also be able to consult for the following treatments:
- Pigmented spots
- Stretch marks
Our clinic offers hair removal care, treatment of pigment spots and vascular lesions, rejuvenation with the laser platform equipped with Cutera’s exclusive Nd:YAG technology, an advanced and innovative technology.
