How we use technology and devices to solve problems?
Laser therapy has progressed through the years. In the past half of the laser therapies were efficient but almost all of them work now.
There are lots of different technologies and devices that can be used for treatment.
Pulsed dye laser (PDL) can be used in large variety of treatments such as vascular, birthmarks. It has low down time and can treat post acne red scars. PDL can be used for all skin types.
Picoway is another device that can act at the dermis without breaking the epidermis. Acne scars and winkles can be treated by Picoway.
It has low to no downtime and treat can be done in three or four sessions.
CO2RE is a more aggressive device that can be used for acne scar. It is an older technology comparing to the others and is more aggressive and has long downtime.
Common pathway for all devices in helping acne scars is collagen renewing.
There isn’t a rule in choosing the right device for treatment, different types of patients get different types of treatments. You should decide which one is better and fit the patients best.
