HOW DOES THE THULIUM LASER WORK?
Thulium laser [Lavieen] is a laser using thulium technology, where the power source is thulium - a rare element of the lanthanide series.
The operation of the thulium laser allows to operate in a fractional system, using three modes: ablative, non-ablative and subablative. As a result, simultaneous action on both the surface of the skin and deeper layers of the skin is possible during a single treatment session.
Thanks to the used technology, a thulium laser has a wide range of applications in rejuvenating treatments, as well as reducing various skin imperfections.
- Acne scars
- Minor wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Large and enlarged pores
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Abnormal skin texture
- Pigmentation changes: age spots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Uncontrolled diabetes
- Photosensitizing drugs and herbs
- Retinoid therapies (locally and generally)
- Recent peelings
- Skin cancers
- Decreased immunity
- Tanned skin, use of self-tanners
- Skin inflammation
Number of recommended treatments in a series: 3 treatments at an interval of 3-4 weeks, preferably in the autumn and winter period.
The final number of treatments is determined by a doctor based on the patient’s individual needs.
