Hair removal

The diode lasers represent the most advanced technologies for hair removal. The wavelength enables high absorption of light radiation in melanin and low absorption in water. This guarantees selective and safe treatment without risk of side effects. At the same time, it is possible to treat dark skin types with low risk. For larger areas, the SmoothPulse treatment mode can be used, so that even for sensitive patients the laser pulses are hardly noticeable.

Hair removal uses the energy of light to prevent hair regrowth. In this process, the light must penetrate several millimeters into the skin to reach the hair root as well. When it hits the melanin of the hair, it is absorbed and converted into heat. The heat is stronger the darker, thicker and denser the hair is. The thermal damage thus caused to the cells in the hair and in the immediate hair environment, which are responsible for hair regrowth, results in a drastic reduction of hair in the treated area.

At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the high power is sufficiently cooled. Therefore, Asclepion’s systems are equipped with an efficient, integrated skin cooling, which always cools the top layer of skin before the light pulse and, in addition to protecting the epidermis, makes the treatment more comfortable.

Treatments with lasers are gentle on the skin and remove troublesome skin lesions very effectively and in a matter of minutes. An ablative laser works very precisely and can remove targeted areas of skin to a predefined depth with little pain. At the same time, the renewal of the skin is stimulated.

After treatment, it usually takes only a few days for the wound to heal. It is recommended to protect the treated area from sunlight or high altitude sun for at least 10 / 15 days before/after the treatment. In summer and generally when the treated areas (e.g. face) are exposed to sunlight, it is recommended to use a sunscreen.

Studies show that the Erbium laser is also very effective for skin resurfacing. The success results from the highly precise removal of tissue during treatment, softening and smoothing of tissue during wound healing and collagen neogenesis during the first year post-op.

Skin ablation

Laser systems have been used in the field of cosmetic surgery for over twenty years and have proven to be very reliable and effective in therapy. Ablative lasers have thus become the gold standard in dermatology. They ablate individual layers of skin with the highest precision. This allows safe and gentle removal of a wide range of benign skin lesions of the epidermis and dermis. Due to their high water absorption, both Erbium:YAG (2940 nm) and CO2 (10,600 nm) wavelengths are well suited for this goal.

During the treatment of vascular lesions, the laser radiation penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood: the blood is strongly heated. This leads to inflammation of the inside of the blood vessel and adhesion of the vessel. The result is an occlusion of the vessel. Depending on the size of the vessel, this takes a longer time (large vessels) or a shorter time (small vessels), up to a few months for deep blue vessels.

For small ecstatic vessels, which are usually red and superficial, the use of a yellow or green laser is recommended, since yellow and green are strongly absorbed by the blood. On the other hand, water absorption is very low. Normal skin contains a lot of water, so the bloodless tissue stays cold, and the surrounding tissue is not damaged. For dark and deeper vessels (bluish), infrared laser radiation is more effective because its penetration depth is higher.

Vascular treatment

Lasers with a wavelength of 577 and 532 nm are particularly suitable for the treatment of fine superficial vessels, such as those often found in the face. For larger dilated vessels, which are usually also deeper in the skin (e.g. spider veins), lasers with a particularly long wavelength or dye lasers are suitable. Due to the higher penetration depth, lasers with an infrared wavelength are very well suited for the coagulation of spider veins.

Tattoo removal

For over 20 years, Asclepion nano-lasers with different wavelengths have been used to remove tattoos. Compared to other procedures, this treatment method is characterized by the very low risk of scarring. Since some years, there is the more modern Pico technology, which further optimizes the treatment results and allows fewer treatment sessions.

The type of laser determines which pigments of which colour can be treated particularly well, and which colour is less responsive to treatment. Ruby lasers (694 nm) have proven to be universally applicable in practice. This wavelength is strongly absorbed by green colour pigments and generally by dark colours. The light of the Nd:YAG laser (532; 1064 nm) is very well absorbed by red, blue as well as dark colours.

The wavelength of the ruby or Nd:YAG laser light is specifically absorbed by the colour pigments of the tattoo. Due to the transmitted energy, encapsulated colour particles are abruptly fragmented from the connective tissue capsules. Subsequently, the fragmented particles are broken down epidermally and lymphatically. The irradiated skin area appears whitish for 10 – 20 min immediately after treatment. After that, light scabs will form for about 1 – 2 weeks. To remove the tattoo, usually a few sessions are needed at intervals of several weeks. Patients usually tolerate laser treatment without anaesthesia, only in individual cases superficial anaesthesia is used.

There are many types of pigmented skin lesions, but they differ fundamentally among themselves in their morphological and histological characteristics. Benign pigmented lesions such as lentigo simplex, lentio senilis (age or sun spots) and many other types of nevi can be treated with pico- and nano-lasers. They emit short pulses of light that are selectively absorbed by the skin pigment melanin due to their wavelength. The transmitted energy abruptly fragments encapsulated pigment particles from the connective tissue capsules.

Subsequently, the fragmented particles are broken down epidermally and lymphatically. Immediately after the laser treatment, the irradiated skin area appears whitish for 10 – 20 min. After that, a light scab will form for about 1 – 2 weeks. The laser treatment itself is uncomplicated and is usually performed on an outpatient basis with or without superficial anaesthesia.

Pigment removal

Depending on the type of pigmentation, different lasers can be used. Pico and Nano lasers have proven to be universally applicable in practice. Due to the strong absorption of the laser light by the skin pigment melanin and the short pulses, they are particularly well suited for the treatment of natural pigmented lesions. However, pigmented lesions can also be treated with ablative lasers. Here, a distinction is made between “cold ablation” (Er:YAG) and vaporization (KTP/LBO/HOPSL).
