How do I know if I’m a good candidate for the EMERGE™ skin rejuvenation laser?
The EMERGE™ works on most skin types, including very light and very dark skin. The EMERGE™ can refresh your appearance as well as knock out the deepest wrinkles, improve the most challenging scars and help to correct a wide variety of other skin imperfections. Your provider will discuss the EMERGE™ treatment options with you.
How does it work?
Your provider uses the EMERGE™ Fractional Laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. EMERGE™ from Palomar uses laser energy microbeams to create areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue (collagen and elastin fibres) to replace the areas of affected tissue and this will result in healthier, younger looking skin.
How long does the treatment take?
Most EMERGE™ treatments last no more than an hour. Depending on the skin condition being treated, your provider may recommend a single treatment session or a series of progressive treatments for the best result.
How quickly will I recover?
Following some EMERGE™ treatments you may resume your regular activities on the same day; more aggressive procedures may require several days of healing. Ask your provider what you can expect from your treatment.
Does it hurt?
Most people feel minimal discomfort during and after treatment. In some cases, your provider may recommend mild pain management options during the procedure and/or for a few days following the treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
You can expect to experience a temporary redness, warmth and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts only a few days. In other cases, some post-care wound management may be necessary for a few days following treatment. Your provider will discuss the potential side effects and your post-treatment expectations with you.
