Ablative Laser: What is it and do I need it?

What is ablative laser?

Ablative laser is a medical device that vaporises the skin tissue to remove it. Examples of ablative lasers are Erbium or CO2.
The benefits can include improved texture, pores, pigment, and sun damage. The new skin is significantly smoother, younger and reflects light better.

Ablative laser and energy based devices are used for multiple popular skin treatments performed at The Manse. including the following:

1. Mole, lump and bump removal
2. Acne and other scarring
3. Skin rejuvenation

Ablative laser is an advanced technique and should only be performed in medical clinics. It may be combined with other lasers and injectables.
There is typically 2-7 days downtime associated with these procedures.

Moles can be removed by erbium laser or a radiofrequency device. The treatment takes approximately 7 days to heal

Acne and other scarring

Ablative laser can be used in a fractionated form for acne or other scarring. Sometimes we also use ablative laser for keloid and hypertrophic scarring

Laser Resurfacing

A popular treatment at The Manse for skin rejuvenation is laser resurfacing, where the complete surface of the skin is removed. This is similar to a deeper chemical peel, but allows more precision with depth.
The benefits are improved texture, pores, pigment, and sun damage. The new skin is just significantly smoother, younger and glowing.
