EMERGE SKIN RESURFACING
The Emerge™ Fractional Laser is a laser system that delivers precise pulses of laser light energy that is absorbed by a chromophore (target) in the skin. Laser skin treatments are performed on acne scars, fine lines, stretch marks and pigmented lesions, such as lentigos and solar lentigos. The sensation of laser light is sometimes slightly uncomfortable. The treated area may be swollen immediately after treatment and generally resolves within 24-48 hours, but may last up to three to five (3-5) days or longer in some clients. Using the right products after a treatment may help reduce discomfort and swelling.
A prior consultation is booked during which the Doctor will explain further the treatment, procedure, indications, expected results and possible side effects.
Asides from The Emerge™ Fractional Laser, other skin improving treatments exist. Micro-needle rollers together with chemical peels, can help improve the texture and colour of the skin, but it might take more time to achieve the same results.
