Huidzorg West has both Erbium fractional lasers; the Erbium:Glass laser and the Erbium:YAG laser. Both lasers can be used to improve dull skin, pigmentation, (acne) scars and wrinkles. The skin therapist will determine which laser is most suitable for your skin.
Huidzorg West uses the most effective and newest treatment method: the Nordlys Ellipse Fraxx 1550nm, an Erbium Glass laser. This unique approach to treatment leads to skin renewal, as the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated in the dermis (deeper skin layers). This special laser technique is distinguished by its extremely short pulse duration, which means that the intensive treatment has a short recovery period.
The Erbium Yag laser treats conditions such as superficial scars and fine lines well.The heat of the laser causes the upper layer of the skin to vaporise, so that superficial irregularities can be treated effectively. In addition, the Erbium: YAG laser is also very suitable for removing benign skin spots.
Depending on the condition, a combination of the two laser techniques can be recommended.
The treatment area is cleaned and marked with a skin pencil
You will be given protective laser goggles
Erbium Glass laser
The marked area is treated with a rolling movement in three different directions
Erbium Yag laser The marked area is treated by the laser with 1 or more stamping passes
Before, during and after the treatment, the skin is cooled with a cold pack
After the treatment, the skin is cared for with the bionic: the after-treatment cream
