What is LaseMD™ thulium laser?
The LaseMD™ 1927nm thulium laser is a non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing laser for skin rejuvenation.
There are two main kinds of laser resurfacing: confluent resurfacing where the entire facial skin is resurfaced, and fractional resurfacing, where a portion of the skin (columns of skin) is resurfaced. Fractional resurfacing treats only a portion of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding untreated skin intact, from which healing can take place rapidly allowing a reasonable healing time. The controlled tissue injury results in stimulation of the body’s natural wound healing mechanisms, leading to old tissue being replaced by new undamaged tissue and collagen.
The LaseMD™ thulium laser allows for customisable treatments, meaning all skin types and tolerance levels can be treated with minimal to no downtime.
Different to traditional resurfacing lasers, the LaseMD™ thulium laser provides gentler, yet effective treatment with less downtime and minimal discomfort when compared with older style resurfacing procedures, for example Fraxel™.
The LaseMD™ thulium laser offers many advantages over the older Fraxel™ technology: higher power and maximum density settings, more tunable settings resulting in a wider range of treatment intensities from mild to more aggressive and reduced post-procedural side effects such as swelling.
Who is a suitable candidate?
The LaseMD™ thulium laser effective treats many skin concerns including:
We primarily use the LaseMD™ thulium laser to treat the face, neck, decolletage, arms and hands.
What to expect?
As with all our medical procedures, a consultation and examination is necessary prior to LaseMD™ thulium laser treatment.
Depending on the severity of your skin concerns, area/s to be treated and your skin type, settings are determined to achieve the best outcome for you.
Numbing cream may or may not be required and will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
The treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete depending on the areas being treated.
The treatment is relatively comfortable with most patients experiencing warmth and a tingling sensation over the area being treated.
We utilise the benefits of our Healite II immediately after LaseMD™ thulium laser treatment to promote and accelerate the healing process and improve the end result even further.
Specific aftercare instructions will be given to you at the time of your procedure.
Immediately after treatment your skin will feel warm and look red, similar to a mild sunburn but will not be painful. Over the following days your skin will feel dry, almost like ‘sandpaper’. In most cases, full healing is usually expected within 5-7 days.
Sun protection including daily wearing and correct application of sunscreen is mandatory during treatment and is of course recommended long term as part of your skin care routine.
How are we unique?
Whilst the LaseMD™ thulium laser is suitable for a wide variety of skin concerns, as with all our medical treatments, a medical consultation is required prior to treatment to ensure that this is the correct treatment for your skin condition.
Many skin conditions benefit from combining several treatment modalities and this consultation allows discussion of all the possible treatment options available to you.
