Human skin is exposed to various influences during the course of a life, which can impair the structure of the skin. Increasing age, pronounced exposure to sunlight, stress and many other environmental influences can lead to wrinkles and a loss of skin tone. The first signs of diminishing skin tautness can usually be seen in the face - especially the delicate skin surrounding the eyes and mouth.
With the state-of-the-art PicoPlus laser device, the Prevention Centre offers a gentle yet effective way to smooth your skin.
PicoPlus is a picosecond laser which was developed for aesthetic skin treatments. The laser transmits ultrasound energy pulses, which penetrate into the targeted skin areas for only one billionth of a second. Compared to previously used nanosecond lasers, the PicoPlus picosecond laser achieves faster and higher quality results while reducing the number of sessions required.
The powerful energy pulses of the picosecond laser can be efficiently combined with PicoPlus, resulting in very precise depth-effective results.
In the run-up to the wrinkle treatment, a detailed consultation is held in the premises of the prevention-center. This discussion helps to inform customers about the benefits and risks of the treatment and to specify the individual correction wishes of the customer.
For the purpose of complication-free laser treatment and subsequent healing, it is advisable to avoid intensive sun exposure for several days before and after the wrinkle treatment. In addition, it is important that the areas of skin to be corrected at the time of treatment are free from inflammation and skin diseases.
The PicoPlus performs a non-ablative wrinkle smoothing - for the purpose of treatment, it is not necessary to remove skin particles. The micro-beams of the PicoPlus laser are only applied to the targeted areas and the surrounding tissue remains unaffected by the treatment. The micro-beams used for the purpose of wrinkle smoothing specifically lead to minimal local injuries of the tissue in the dermis and epidermis (lower and upper skin layers). During the natural healing process, these tissue regions are replaced by a healthy and regular tissue structure with sufficient proportions of natural collagen.
The PicoPlus professional laser treatment significantly improves the customer's skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. A single session usually results in excellent long-term results.
As the PicoPlus wrinkle treatment is highly focused on tissue areas that are surrounded by healthy tissue over a large area, the treated skin layers regenerate comparatively quickly - on average, a recovery time of only 2 days is required after the treatment.
After a PicoPlus wrinkle treatment, there might be a temporary reddening of the treated areas of skin. This is completely normal and soon subsides.
The laser treatment may also result in minimal punctiform capillary bleeding, which is similar in scale to a bruise and is not generally a cause for concern.
Customers who are scar easily should report this in the preliminary discussion.
