HOW WE TREAT
Emerge Fractional Laser
What Is Emerge Fractional Laser
The Emerge Fractional Laser is a skin resurfacing device that uses a non-ablative laser to stimulate skin tightening and rejuvenation while minimising down-time and recovery.
The non-ablative laser speeds up the skin’s natural rejuvenation process by helping the body to break up old, damaged cells faster rather than vaporising the cells as with ablative lasers.
This results in a more gentle treatment with far less down-time and recovery required, however, the results will be achieved over a longer period of time.
The Emerge Fractional Laser is effective for improving overall skin rejuvenation, minimising fine lines and wrinkles, reducing pore size, fading pigment and reducing surface scarring.
Cosmetic Sculpting Clinic’s highly trained therapists can incorporate a number of skin solutions to your treatment plan to ensure you achieve the best possible result.
What To Expect
- The treatment will take approximately 60 minutes (numbing time included).
- The laser handpiece will be passed over the treatment area and you may experience mild discomfort if numbing cream is declined.
- Following the treatment you may experience swelling, itchiness and redness, however these should subside over the next 48 hours.
- Makeup and direct sunlight should be avoided for this period and you should only use products that have been approved by your therapist in this time.
- Results will be seen after 1 treatment but specific concerns such as pigmentation or scarring will reduce incrementally with each treatment.
Frequently Asked Question
How many treatments will I need?
Treatment needs vary depending on the individual and their concern. As a rough guide, patients can expect that skin rejuvenation may require 4-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart; Acne Scarring may require 6 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart; and Stretch Marks may require 4-8 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
When will I see results?
Typically, you will begin to see results following the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after the full course of treatments. Your skin will continue to improve after the course of treatments, and you will see further improvement when combining treatments with proper post-care regimes.
Is Micro-Needling painful?
Depending on the depth of the penetration, you may experience a slight discomfort. The use of topical anaesthetic will greatly assist for treatments involving deeper penetration and is readily available.
Is there any down time?
Normally, there is no down time associated with the treatment, however, you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment.
How many treatments can I have per year?
An average of 4-8 treatments is advised per year as the effects are long lasting.
Should I wait before having a treatment if I have had a cosmetic injection?
Patients who have had anti-wrinkle injections should allow 2 weeks either side of the treatment. Patients who have had filler injections should wait at least 4 days to allow the filler to settle. You can have the dermapen treatment 1-2 days before the filler injections.
