Dermablate

Acne Scar

Scars, which are made mainly of collagen (a protein fiber normally found in the skin's second layer), are the body's way of repairing itself. The scar are typically idented because of the collagen loss from the intense inflammation. Normally these are injury due to picking and squeezing. Squeezing a pimple causes pus and bacteria to access deeper into the skin, resulting in more collagen damage.

Wrinkles

With the passing of the years, the skin of the face tends to relax and become thinner. This is mainly due to loss of collagen, dehydration, and other secondary factors like smoking, stress, excessive exposure to the sun, poor diet and atmospheric pollution.

Laser emits a light capable of vaporizing the superficial layers of the epidermis and softening the furrows of the wrinkles. This process leads to a desquamation of the tissues treated and a natural regeneration of the skin. In fact, the epidermis that remains underneath produces new cells and there is the formation of new collagen with a net improvement of the skin texture and elasticity.

Laser Treatment

Laser skin resurfacing using fractionated laser technology can even out the skin surface and increase new collagen formation to help fill in acne scars. Non-ablative lasers stimulate the production of collagen without damaging the skin's surface.

For deeper acne scar, using the fractional ablative laser vaporized the skin cell to safely and gently remove a wide variety of lesions from the skin at the level of the epidermis. The Dermablate laser provides highly effective treatment for wrinkles and acne scar without any thermal damage to the skin. The result, your skin tone and texture would improve. The downside to Dermablate laser, as it is semi-invasive, is that there would be downtime for 5-7 days as it takes time for the old skin to shade away. You would experience, reddish and burning sensation after the treatment.

Highlights

SAFE

Performed by qualified and accredited doctor on laser procedures.

High Technology

The configuration of the laser is a controllable method of tissue ablation. The wavelength of the laser is identical with the maximum of water absorption.

Semi Invasive

The time required for Dermablate laser treatment has a shorter healing time compared to a CO2 laser.

Healing Time

Typically you would require 5-7 days for your skin to rejuvenate.

Less Pain Compare to CO2

Thanks to the very limited thermal effects, the procedure is less painful than with CO2 lasers. Patients normally do not require any anesthesia for the treatment of small lesions.

FAQ

Is Dermablate laser treatment safe?
Laser devices have been exploited in cosmetic surgery for over twenty years, demonstrating a high degree of reliability and effectiveness when used by qualified specialists on carefully selected patients. Laser has taken over from the old traditional alternatives like chemical peeling and dermo-abrasion which are not able to control the depth of action and are more painful and uncomfortable for the patient.

How many sessions are necessary?
One single treatment can be carried out by operating in greater depth; otherwise it is possible to carry out several "softer" treatments for better assessing the situation and with shorter recovery periods. It depends more on the patient's requirements than on the physician's decision.

How long are the healing times?
The recovery times are usually very short. During the first 48 hours, there is a sensation of heat or burning similar to sunstroke, discomfort that vanishes thanks to the use of creams indicated by the physician. For 10- 15 days afterwards the skin will have a smooth appearance with a reddish color that can easily be covered with light make-up and without prejudicing your daily activities or social life.

What are the post-treatment indications to be followed?
During the first 48 hours, moisturizing antibiotic and anti-inflammatory creams can be applied. The use of Vaseline-based preparations is also recommended for 8 days after the operation in order to prevent the formation of unsightly scabs. Following this it will still be necessary to protect your skin from the sun's rays for about two months. You must wait 4 - 6 months before exposing your skin to the sun again.

Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is not painful and is well tolerated by the patient. A local anesthetic may be used for particularly sensitive areas.

Are there any undesirable side effects?
At times there could be unsightly dark marks which always disappear within a few weeks either spontaneously or by following your physician's indications.

What results are obtained?
After laser therapy the skin will be tauter, smoother and more polished, the deep wrinkles will be attenuated and the finer ones will disappear. Moreover, the treatment will not cause any alterations in your natural facial expression or gestures.
