Emerge Fraxel Laser
The EMERGE Fraxel skin resurfacing is a proven approach to skin rejuvenation that uses laser micro-beams to create areas of treated tissue surrounded by untreated tissue. The Emerge fractional laser achieves excellent non-ablative skin resurfacing results with little to no downtime, and does not require a topical anaesthetic.
What are the benefits?
Emerge can improve the appearance of:
- Skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmented lesions
- Pore size reduction
- Surgical and acne scar
- Stretch marks
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for the Palomar Fraxel rejuvenation laser?
The EMERGE™ works on most skin types, including darker skin. The Palomar 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.
How does it work?
Your provider uses the Fractional Laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. EMERGE™ from Palomar uses laser energy micro beams 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, you may need 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.
Does it hurt?
Most people feel minimal discomfort during and after treatment. We can 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.
