Applications Laser | Matoula clinic
Laser hair removal Alexandrite 755nm

Alexandrite laser 755nm is the fastest and most effective use laser of hair removal approved by the US FDA for permanent reduction of unwanted hair growth.

It has a selective effect, as a result of which the wavelength of the light it emits directly targets the hair follicle and, in particular, the light beam is absorbed by the melanin of the hair follicle.

A cooling protection mechanism is also available to protect the skin – even dark skin – and ensure maximum efficiency and safety. Thus, a gradual destruction of the follicle is achieved and consequently non-re-eruption of the hair is achieved.

The application is almost painless (many times with the use of local anesthetic cream), it is done easily and quickly both in the small areas of the face and in the large areas of the body.

Applications Laser | Matoula clinic
Fractional CO2 laser

Fractional laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment of a laser beam consisting of thousands of tiny dots of treatment, targeting a fraction of the skin in an infinitesimal time.

Fractional CO2 laser targets both the skin and the dermis, the deepest layer, where collagen and elastic fibers are located, thus heating these layers.

This increase in temperature triggers mechanisms for the regeneration of the dermis, which aims at the aesthetic improvement of the quality of the skin and the short recovery time of the patient.

Η δράση του Fractional CO2 laser στην επιφάνεια της επιδερμίδας έχει ως αποτέλεσμα τη βελτίωση της υφής του δέρματος, τη μείωση των δυσχρωμιών καθώς και τη λείανση των ρυτίδων και ουλών.

Όσον αφορά τη δράση του laser στο χόριο, όπου διεγείρει την παραγωγή και ανάπλαση του κολλαγόνου, εκεί βελτιώνει τις ουλές, μειώνει τις ρυτίδες και προάγει τη σύσφιξη δημιουργώντας παχύτερο και καλύτερα δομημένο κολλαγόνο.

treatment with CO2 Fractional laser

Applications Laser | Matoula clinic

Fractional laser CO2 treatment is recommended in:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles
  • Diffuse discolorations
  • Post-traumatic – Postoperative scars (hypertrophic – atrophic)
  • Stretch marks / Streaks
  • Aged and dull skin

How often is the treatment repeated?

For a better aesthetic result, the treatment can be repeated every one to one and a half months and in total up to 3-4 sessions are recommended, depending on the case. In any case, the device has multiple settings and the treatment is personalized, following specialized treatment protocols, depending on the needs of each patient.

How long does recovery last after a Fractional treatment and what are the symptoms?

Usually the duration of recovery is about 5-15 days and depends, like the severity of the symptoms, on the intensity of treatment and the subjective reaction of the patient. Immediately after fractional treatment, the patient will feel a burning sensation, in the area where the treatment was applied, which will last for about an hour.

The skin will show redness and a slight swelling, which subsides the next day while the redness will subside in 3-4 days, when the peeling begins for about 4-5 days. During this time, the skin should be protected from ultraviolet radiation with sunscreen and it is allowed to be covered with make -up until full recovery.

Treatment of pigmented lesions with Laser

Lasers also give excellent results in the elimination of various pigmented lesions (senile spots, sunspots, freckles) achieving selective elimination of the target tissue, while the normal tissue remains intact. These are areas of the skin, where melanocytes multiply and increase.

They appear mainly on the hands, on the décolleté, on the face, that is, spots that are most exposed to the sun. They are benign lesions, but a careful diagnosis must be made by the dermatologist before laser treatment is applied. The treatment is almost painless and treated within 1-2 sessions.

Η χειρουργική επέμβαση με laser CO2 πραγματοποιείται στο ιατρείο υπό τοπική αναισθησία.

Η μέθοδος αυτή απαιτεί εξειδικευμένη εκπαίδευση και μειώνει το χρόνο αποθεραπείας σε 7-10 μέρες, ενώ πλεονεκτεί έναντι των παλαιών συμβατικών μεθόδων όσον αφορά την ακρίβεια των χειρισμών του ιατρού, με την οποία καταστρέφει τη βλάβη χωρίς να πλήττει το παρακείμενο υγιές δέρμα.
