What to Expect
Most individuals experience little to no discomfort during dermal cold laser treatment. The procedure is generally painless, although you may feel a very mild warming or tingling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin. Sessions are typically relatively quick, lasting anywhere from a few minutes to around 45 minutes, depending on the specific treatment area and the extent of the condition being addressed. You can expect little to no downtime after treatment.
How to Prepare for Treatment
The best results will be achieved by combining these active in-clinic sessions with great sun protection and home skin care.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Cold Laser work?
Cold laser therapy works by applying specific wavelengths of light to the targeted area of the body. The light energy penetrates the skin and interacts with cells, triggering various biological responses such as tissue repair and regeneration, blood flow and vasodilation.
The specific wavelengths used in cold laser therapy are carefully selected based on the targeted condition. Different conditions may require different wavelengths and treatment parameters for optimal results. Our German R-J Laser has programmable settings that allow us to choose the appropriate parameters for your individual’s needs.
What does Cold Laser feel like?
Sensations during cold laser treatment can vary. Patients may experience a gentle buzzing sensation with inflamed or injured tissue. When treating tender scars, there could be slightly uncomfortable spots. However, in many cases, patients may not feel anything during the treatment.
What is Cold Laser used for?
Cold laser therapy is utilised by medical professionals, including doctors, dentists, and physical therapists, for various purposes. At the Mayah Clinic, common applications include skin and muscle rejuvenation for the face and neck, acne treatment, inflammatory skin conditions (such as dermatitis and eczema), scar and wound healing, cold sores, and bruising.
How many treatments will I need?
Cold laser therapy requires multiple sessions to achieve lasting effects. The exact number and frequency of treatments will be determined by our clinicians based on your specific condition. For facial rejuvenation regular 4-6 weekly visits will be required, as every treatment is feeding the laser energy to the muscles and skin to boost their level of functioning.
