Laser treatment of discolouration – Lavieen thulium laser

Thulium laser is a modern device in aesthetic medicine designed for skin reshaping and rejuvenating. The procedure is exceptionally effective and safe, and require extremely short time for convalescence. It is specifically recommended for those who want to get rid of discolouration, scars, and other skin imperfections.

How to prepare for the procedure:

  • The procedure is carried out following a consultation with the specialist.
  • Topical anaesthetic cream is applied directly onto the treated area before the procedure.
  • A few days before the procedure refrain from using facial cream and other cosmetics containing retinoids and acids.
  • Do not perform any exfoliation procedures such as peels or microdermabrasion.

  Procedure description and effects:

  • In this procedure the precisely adjusted depth of laser beam penetration and the energy of its pulses enables a deep reconstruction of the skin structure starting from the base layer.
  • This is a short procedure.
  • The patient may feel burning or stinging during the procedure.
