Is Laser skin care treatment right for me?
Lumenis® CO2 laser procedures are not suitable for everyone, for example patients who have taken Accutane® (Isotretinoin) withinthe past 6-12 months, or had a history of keloid formation. Risks may include change of pigmentation, infection, redness, textural changes or scarring. Be sure to consult your physician regarding treatment options available and related contraindications and risks based on your individual concerns and medical history, before choosing a treatment.
How Does It Work?
The Lumenis® fractional laser creates microscopic channels that trigger the process of new collagen and elastic fibers production, while leaving some unaffected skin in between the channels to reduce healing time. The result is deep dermal regeneration that dramatically improves your skin elasticity and appearance.
The unique power and precision of Lumenis® technology enables your physician to customize treatments for your specific skin concerns and needs, with optimal comfort and healing time.
To minimize discomfort during deeper treatments, a local anesthetic should be applied to numb your skin. Depending on the treatment area, you can expect the session to last approximately 20-30 minutes.
During the treatment you may feel a warm sensation as the laser is applied but you should not feel any discomfort.
When Will I See Results?
The main advantage of DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™ is that results are visible after one single treatment. As your skin heals following the treatment, you will begin to notice an improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, tone and texture.
Typically, you should expect to continue to see improvement for up to 18 months following the procedure.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Immediately following treatment, your skin will be warm and may be slightly red and swollen, depending on your customized treatment settings.
To support you in the healing process, a daily skincare routine should be prescribed.
