My Dermablate Laser Treatment at Asclepion Headquarters in Germany

Case Studies, Latest News , ,

Hi I’m Hayley, Senior Practitioner here at Simply Skin in Oldham. Recently I undertook advanced training at the Asclepion Laser Treatment Headquarters in Jena, Germany where our Laser originates. During the three days spent at the International Training Centre I decided to have some treatments myself. As a Practitioner I feel it is important to experience the treatments first hand and the successful effects.

I had a treatment using the Dermablate MCL31 – Erbium:YAG Laser, a gold standard laser in dermatology when it comes to highly precise skin fractional skin resurfacing (management of skin imperfections). It allows the safe and gentle removal of a variety of lesions of the epidermis and dermis. It also provides effective treatment for wrinkles and scars such as those caused by acne. The Dermablate Laser leaves no thermal damage to the skin, due to the high water absorption of its wavelength and the highly effective ablative and fractional technology.

The treatment wasn’t very painful,  just felt rather hot. Of course the settings can be increased depending on the reason for treatment and a topical numbing cream may be applied by your Doctor/Practitioner.

I have attached pictures so you can see day by day how my skin healed. It took one week in total for my skin to completely heal, which is quite amazing when you look at the initial images.

Before Treament

Before Treatment
For me personally I was quite concerned with some open pores around my cheeks and chicken pox scars. I have also begun to develop deeper lines around my mouth, which I was feeling self conscious about. Don’t you just love the ageing process!

During Treatment– The treatment took around 20 minutes but the Doctor was training and the students were asking questions etc. I would imagine it would have been done in ten minutes or less in Clinic. No numbing cream was required for this treatment.

After Treatment

After Treatment

Straight after Treatment- My skin felt very warm, I applied a gentle topical cream to soothe it and it felt amazing to be outside in the cold!

After 2 DayAfter 2 Days

You can now see on my face those little squares, this is the fractional part of the laser. It puts little holes into the skin to damage it. Our skin then repairs itself and therefore repairing skin also damaged previously i.e acne scarring or lines and wrinkles.

After 4 days

After 3/4 days

As you can see in this image my skin is so much calmer, it’s unbelievable how it looks compared to just 3 days ago!

Day 5 Looking Good!

This is the first day I felt I was able to wear make up and apply it properly.

I hope you enjoyed sharing my treatment journey! I must say I am really pleased with the results I have experienced after one treatment. The first two days were a little uncomfortable, but given the full healing time was one week, I think that’s pretty amazing.
