Laser treatment, pulsed light and infrared
Targeted laser treatment of benign skin changes, hair removal, scar revision and tattoo removal.
Laser light is highly concentrated and has a specific wave length. Depending on the used wave length, power density, pulse duration and application time, different laser can achieve various effects on the tissue. The principle of selective photothermolysis ensures that only the target structures are specifically treated without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The following devices are available at our dermatology clinic for laser therapy:
Erbium: YAG laser
Precise removal of benign anomalies and growths on the skin (e.g. irritating skin tags, age warts, sebaceous gland nodules or thick scarring) with minimal risk of scarring and short healing time.
Ablative CO2 laser
Precise removal of deep benign anomalies and growths on the skin (e.g. virus warts or thick scarring) with minimal risk of scarring and short healing time.
Fractionated CO2 laser
Treatment of large areas of light-damaged skin, fine lines and pitted acne scars on the face and neck, or in preparation for photodynamic therapy. The skin becomes firmer and smoother, and pigmentation changes can be significantly reduced. Several treatments may be required to achieve the best result.
The 577 nm QuadroStar Pro yellow laser has been specially developed to treat changes in the to red blood vessels. Dilated veins (couperose), haemangiomas and port-wine stains can be gently removed.
Q-switched Nd: YAG laser
Removal of sun and age spots (lentigines), freckles, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and tattoos.
Long pulsed Nd:YAG laser
Epilation of unwanted body hair, particularly on dark skin. It is also an effective method of treating spider veins and improving red stretch marks.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
The pulsed light can treat large areas of diffused redness of the skin (e.g. rosacea or couperose), port-wine stains and pigment disorders with few side effects. It can also be used to removed unwanted hair. IPL technology is suitable for non-invasive skin rejuvenation.
Infrared light therapy
Infrared light therapy is particularly suitable for specifically firming the skin with few side effects.When new collagen forms in the deep layer of the dermis, this firms up the skin and delays skin ageing.
