Emerge™ Fractional Laser
Emerge™ Fractional Laser by Palomar is the only FDA regulated medical device approved for non-surgical laser skin resurfacing. Body Shapes MD is delighted to be the first provider of this state-of-the-art technology in the Louisville, KY/Southern IN area.
Many dermatological conditions can contribute to aging skin, including mild to moderate wrinkles, pigment and textural irregularities. Fractional laser skin resurfacing is a proven approach to skin rejuvenation that uses laser microbeams to create areas of treated tissue surrounded by untreated tissue. The body's natural healing process then rebuilds treated tissue with new collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of youthful-looking skin.
The Emerge™ Fractional Laser provides non-ablative skin resurfacing results with little to no downtime. The laser's compact size, intuitive user interface, and custom preset controls are designed to help easily treat conditions such as mild to moderate wrinkles and pigmented lesions.
Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing provides:
- flexible treatments for several skin conditions
- well-tolerated, easy treatment sessions
- Options for no-downtime and minimal downtime treatments
- Excellent aesthetic results
How does it work?
Fractional skin resurfacing with the Emerge system uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affecte tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body's natural healing process created new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
How long does it take?
Most treatments last no more than 30 minutes, depending on the condition of the skin being treated. More treatments may be necessary, depening on the client's preference.
Does it hurt?
Most people feel minimal discomfort during and after the treatment. In some cases, our medical team may recomment mild pain management options. Again, this depends on the condition of the skin.
What can I expect after treatment?
Temporary redness, warmth and swelling may occur at the treatment site, which typically lasts only a few days. We will discuss potential side effects and your post-treatment expectations with you on your free consults.
