Behandeling tegen rimpels

Scars

Scars can be visible in the skin as pigmentation spots and irregularities such as elevations or recesses. Both the discolourations and irregularities can be significantly improved with our skin treatments.

Pigmentation & irregularities

Scars can be caused by acne, but also by wounds, abrasions, and surgery. The scars can leave behind permanent red and brown discolourations (pigmentation) and irregularities in the skin. These irregularities can be unpleasant. Both the discolourations and irregularities can be improved with our treatments.

Every treatment is customized to the type of skin and scar.

Intake

The first step is always an intake with our laser specialist. During this consultation our exact method, your wishes and the realistic possibilities are discussed.

Customized treatment

During the consultation the specialist inspects your skin and scars. Because every type of skin and scar is different we need to customize each treatment for optimal results. The exact price and the number of treatments required therefore also differ for each person.

In the end the intake provides honest advice about the best possibilities for improving the scars.

For an intake we charge € 30,-. These costs will be deducted from the eventual treatment costs. In most cases we can plan an intake with a treatment directly after, if so desired and requested in advance.

Treatment

Scars can be treated with a variety of methods:

IPL

The Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) sends out bursts of intense light. The skin absorbs the energy of these flashes, causing redness and pigmentation to fade, the skin texture to refine and active acne to be reduced.

Fractional

A treatment with the fractional method is a good way to renew the skin. Fine lines, slacked skin, and irregularities such as acne scars can significantly be improved with this method.

LED

LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repairs skin tissue. The blue LED light kills the bacteria that cause acne.

Peeling

LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repairs skin tissue. The blue LED light kills the bacteria that cause acne.

IPL

The Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) sends out bursts of intense light. The skin absorbs the energy of these flashes, causing redness and pigmentation to fade, the skin texture to refine and active acne to be reduced.

With the IPL we can considerably rejuvenate and refresh the skin. The pores refine and the skin tone improves. The production of collagen is also stimulated, causing the skin to strengthen and rejuvenate.

Veins, redness, and pigmentation spots - including those visible in scars - all fade by treating the skin with the IPL. The IPL’s flashes also kill bacteria, causing pimples to dry out and further reducing redness.

Pre-care

In case you decide to let your skin be treated with the IPL it is important that the skin is as light as possible. As such it is wise to avoid exposure to the sun and tanning bed during the 3 to 4 weeks before the treatment. You also need to avoid the use of any tanning cream (bronzer) during 1 week before the treatment.

Aftercare

After a treatment with the IPL the following matters apply:

  • The skin will feel warm and look sunburned for some time.
  • The treated pigmentation spots and red veins may show some darker discolourations and scabs. This is the sign that the pigmentation and red veins are being broken down and will slowly fade with the renewal of the skin. The discolourations and scabs usually disappear within 1 to 2 weeks. It is important to leave the scabs alone - they need to come off by themselves.
  • No sun, tanning beds, or tanning cream (bronzer) for the first 4 weeks after the treatment.
  • A proper sunscreen (factor 30 or higher) is advised at all times.

Fractional

A treatment with the fractional method is a good way to renew the skin. Fine lines, slacked skin, and irregularities such as acne scars can significantly be improved with this method.

With this method we create regular minuscule holes in the skin in a controller manner. This forces the skin to renew itself and form new collagen. Our laser specialists use the Erbium Yag laser and Venus Viva for this method.

Pre-care

For this treatment it is important that the skin is not sunburned. Therefore you need to avoid sun tanning and tanning beds during the 2 weeks before the treatment.

Erbium Yag

The Erbium Yag evaporates the upper skin layers using a fractional laser beam. When a laser beam is fractionated it is divided into many smaller laser beams. As such the fractional laser creates tiny holes in the skin, forcing it to rejuvenate and renew itself.

Venus Viva

The Venus Viva relies on a method called fractional needling. It creates tiny holes in the skin using many very thin needles. This method goes less deep into the skin than the Erbium Yag, causing the downtime to be shorter.

Aftercare

After this treatment the following practical matters apply:

  • The skin will appear irregularly red and somewhat swollen for the first few days. This is normal and will disappear by itself. The skin can also feel dry and tight.
  • No sun or tanning bed for at least 2 weeks. A proper sunscreen (factor 30 or higher) is advised at all times.
  • The skin may flake. This process will take about a week.

The skin is generally healed from the treatment after 7 to 10 days. After this healing process the result will become visible. The skin keeps producing collagen and thus keeps rejuvenating in the months to follow.

LED

The LED Therapy Mask was originally developed by NASA to accelerate the healing of wounds. LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repairs skin tissue. The blue LED light kills the bacteria that cause acne.

LED light is very suitable for the rejuvenation and general improvement of the skin. LED Therapy can also be used in combination with other facial treatments for an accelerated effect. The LED Therapy Mask also increases the permeability of the skin, which causes nourishing creams and serums to work more effectively.

This treatment can be combined with a hyaluronic acid mask, which restores the moisture levels in the skin.

There is no pre- or aftercare required for a treatment with the LED Mask.

Peeling

A peeling improves the structure of the skin. It refines the skin tone and reduces irregularities. With peelings we eliminate old superficial skin cells, forcing the skin to renew and rejuvenate. Active acne can be cleansed with the help of peelings.

Pre-care

The skin cannot be sunburned. We therefore advise to avoid sun tanning and tanning beds for 2 to 3 weeks before the treatment.

Treatment

First the skin is cleaned. Then the skin is covered with a fluid - the peeling. This process is practically painless. The skin may however feel tight and sting a little during the treatment. A treatment of the face takes about 20 minutes. As result the pores refine, pigmentation fades, and impurities such as acne are cleansed. The production of collagen is also stimulated, causing the skin to rejuvenate.

Aftercare

After a peeling it is important to avoid the sun and tanning bed for 2 to 3 weeks. A proper sunscreen (factor 30 or higher) is advised at all times. Generally the skin will flake and peel in the first 5 to 7 days. Do not touch the peels, they need to come off by themselves. After 1 week the new skin is usually visible.

Number of treatments

For the improvement of scars there are usually 4 to 7 treatments necessary before results become visible.

Over 20 years of experience

It is important that scars are treated by a skilled specialist in order to safely achieve optimal results. We have over 20 years of experience with scars and thus have treated a wide variety of skin and scars. As such our laser specialists are more than qualified to customize and perform the most effective treatment.

Result

With our methods we fade the pigmentation and improve the irregularities of scars.

With each treatment the pigmentation will fade and the quality of the skin will improve.

Improved skin quality

The positive side effect of the treatment of scars is that the skin quality improves. The production of collagen is stimulated, the pores refine, the skin strengthens and becomes more elastic, wrinkles are reduced and the local blood stream is stimulated. As a result the skin appears fresher and smoother.

Starting at € 40,-

The exact price and treatment are customized during the intake with the laser specialist. For a consultation we charge € 30,-. These costs will be deducted from the eventual treatment costs. In most cases we can plan an intake with a treatment directly after, if so desired and requested in advance.
