GLASS FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENT

Secret Erbiu is a non-ablative laser of the latest generation. It is used for skin resurfacing with a minimal recovery period. It triggers collagen production and reduces skin blemishes. It is excellent for evening out skin texture, minimizing wrinkles and scars and eliminating stretch marks.

It has been FDA-approved and it is safe for all skin types. During the treatment, laser light is precisely delivered into the skin’s lower layers. The light creates deep columns and coagulates the tissue which results in brilliant skin remodeling. What makes this laser so effective is that it doesn’t harm the top layer of the skin – it only goes to the lowest layer of the dermis. This treatment is very gentle and doesn’t vaporize the skin cells. Its uniqueness lies in its ability to cover a greater treatment area, but without causing side effects as some more aggressive treatments do. 

After the treatment the skin is rejuvenated in all three layers, it is also firmer and younger-looking.

HOW DOES SECRET ERBIUM LASER WORK TOGETHER WITH RF MICRO-NEEDLING?

Secret Erbium laser treatment can bring even more effective results when combined with RF micro-needling. The laser delivers beams of light and forms columns in the skin’s dermis which induce heat and trigger collagen remodeling. This is a gentle resurfacing treatment that doesn’t damage the epidermis with heat. It covers a greater treatment area that significantly improves the efficacy and lowers the possibility of unwanted side effects. 

On the other hand, bipolar RF micro-needling treatment delivers RF energy precisely to a pre-selected depth – from 0.5mm to 3.5mm. This energy is delivered through fine micro-needles. The combination of two treatments is especially effective in treating photo-damaged skin and scars. 

The two treatments can also be used individually, all depending on the patient’s personal needs.

When used together, these two treatments offer more gentle procedures, reduce downtime and bring wonderful results. 

Both treatments have their advantages. Micro-needling treats skin concerns on the surface level like large pores, sunspots and acne scars. It offers deeper volumetric heating, coagulation and protein denaturation. It remodels the skin on deeper levels without requiring a long downtime. Micro-needling can be adjusted for every skin type and skin concern because the microneedles can vary in their depth. It can improve the skin texture on a superficial level or target deep scars. 

On the other hand, the laser is focused on collagen remodeling and smoothing the skin from the inside out. It provides a wide area of protein denaturation and heating. The patients can resume their everyday activities soon after the treatment, with fresh and rejuvenated-looking skin.

  • WHAT DOES SECRET ERBIUM LASER TREATMENT INCLUDE?

    When the patient arrives at Lucia Clinic first he/she is consulted with the skin therapist. The skin therapist examines the patient and creates a customized treatment plan that will address only the patient’s skin concerns. The skin therapist may decide to use only Secret Erbium Laser therapy or a combination with RF Micro-needling. It all depends on what the patient wants to improve. It can be dull skin, wrinkles, scars or stretch marks or improvement of skin tone and texture.

    Before the treatment, the patient’s skin is cleansed and a topical anesthetic is applied if necessary. Then the skin therapist sets the parameters of the Secret Erbium Laser which include the scan pattern and dot distance. Scan patterns can be oval, half-circle, square or triangle, and scan sizes vary from 1x1mm to 10x10mm. Dot distance can be from 0.1mm to 2mm. When the treatment starts, the therapist presses the laser applicator to the patient’s targeted area and emits the laser light. Then the therapist moves the applicator with i-Motion which means after every 2 beeps. Once the whole treatment area is covered, the treatment is over.

  • ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS AFTER THE SECRET ERBIUM TREATMENT?
