Laser skin rejuvenation
This laser skin rejuvenation treatment was created specially for removal of facial superficial lines, medium deep wrinkles, acne scars, and to improve structure of the skin. The skin fully regenerates, becomes healthy and glowy after this laser treatment. Erbium YAG laser MCL31 Dermablate represents the latest laser generation for skin rejuvenation because of aesthetic reasons and fast recovery.
About the procedure
Multifunctional laser Erbium YAH MCL 31 Dermablate corrects small facial irregularities by lightly exfoliating the surface of the skin, yet when there are deeper wrinkles or scars, it eliminates unnecessary elements, which helps the skin rejuvenate and create a new layer. Erbium laser is a true work of art, which is designed for skin rejuvenation. It has way more advantages than lasers of previous generations, because it has less of unfavourable phenomenons like pain during the treatment, and it gives even more obvious results. The surface layer of the skin is destroyed during the treatment in order to stimulate cellular immune response, which is why the skin starts producing a new layer. The result of this treatment – swelling and redness on the treated area, but these symptoms quickly disappear. Because it is a fractional treatment, the recovery after is faster, comparing to other skin rejuvenating treatments. Epidermis (surface layer of the skin) is removed so that the deeper layers of the skin (which are younger and smoother) would be reached. Collagen, which gives the skin firmness and stimulates dermis (real skin) cells, is activated during this treatment. Sometimes anesthetic or sedatives are used during the fractional treatment, so that the patients remain vigilant, but calm and sleepy. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons at Sapiega clinic will remove those layers which need to be removed, and they will destroy facial superficial lines and medium deep scars and wrinkles.
Depending on the depth and penetration of the laser and patient’s needs – treatment is divided into groups by number of days, which are needed for skin to form. The easiest and gentlest treatment is fractional skin peeling/scrub, which gives the skin a glowy appearance within 24-48 hours after the treatment. It is recommended for those who want to revitalize the skin in a short time. Treatment with a deeper laser beam penetration demands for a longer period of recovery, preferably to stay at home and avoid sun exposure. More detailed recommendations are discussed with every patient individually.

Before the procedure
During the procedure
After the procedure
It is recommended to avoid ultraviolet rays, like exposure in the sun or soliarium, on the treated areas for at least 4 weeks.
You should also not use any anticoagulants (blood-thining medicines, like – Orfarin and Aspirin) for at least 3 days until the treatment. Inform the doctor if you use medicine, which is incompatible with this treatment: retinoids (eg.: isotretinoin), photosensitizer (eg.: an antibiotic, naproxen, antirheumatic, progestins (oral contraceptives) klorokin (anti-malarial) and others).
There can be no pathological changes (inflammation, fester and other) on the area that will be treated.
We recommend avoiding chemical peeling treatments with acid for about 4 weeks before this treatment.
Inform the specialist if you had a plastic or reconstructive surgery.
During the skin rejuvenation treatment, the water located in the cells absorbs the laser rays, which dry it out, help evaporate and cause dehydration, thus immediately removing damaged skin layers. While the doctor performs the procedure, only a very small part (thirty from a million inches) of the tissue is removed. This incredible control enables the physician to perform the procedure incredibly precisely, at the exact depth. When treating with laser rays, some skin segments remain intact because of the air in between the rays, leading to a faster healing of the dehydrated cell layer. Once the damaged skin is removed, new skin layer quickly regenerates to the same place.
It is recommended to avoid hot water, bathing or showering 48 hours after the procedure.
It is recommended to apply cream/ointment reffered by a doctor 3-4 times a day until the skin fully heals (3 to 7 days).
Avoid sun exposure or intensive sun (solarium) without UV protection for at least 6 weeks.
Use a sunscreen (not less than SPF 50) if you have to spend a longer period of time outdoors.
Do not use scrub or peeling on damaged skin and avoid chemical peeling treatments with acid for at least 4 weeks.
Fractional skin treatments are never without a risk. Typically, this treatment is characterized by very few complications.
Depending on the amount of damage – skin redness, swelling and/or sensible heat feeling can appear after the treatment.
Crusts or vesicles can appear, which can not be manipulated.
Possible skin peeling.
Sometimes lesions in pigmentation can appear (damaged skin brightens or darkens in the treated areas), but it usually takes a few weeks to several months.
Visible discolouration, scarring or skin inclusions can appear in rare cases.
