STEP BY STEP PROTOCOL
INSTALLATION AND 1ST LASER MODE
After completing your assessment and reviewing your medical questionnaire, your treating professional will proceed to your installation in the treatment room. You will be comfortably lying down with protective glasses. The first laser mode used will be the Er:YAG, which will treat the lining of the inside of the mouth. You will therefore benefit from a deep collagen stimulation that will give a lifting effect to the inside of the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
2nd LASER MODE
The second laser mode used will be Nd:YAG, which will warm up the cheeks and neck. A heat of 42 degrees Celcius will be maintained for 3 to 5 minutes in the treated area. This will also stimulate collagen regeneration in your face and neck, firming these areas.
3rd LASER MODE
The third laser mode used will still be the Nd:YAG, but this time with a different pulse mode. A heat of 42 degrees Celcius will once again be held for 3 to 5 minutes on your cheeks, neck, and forehead. You will benefit from an improvement in skin texture while stimulating collagen production.
4th LASER MODE AND POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Your treatment will end with the fourth laser mode, the Er:YAG. Your cheeks and your neck will be treated. You will benefit from a skin tightening effect in addition to more stimulation of your collagen production. Finally, before leaving, your professional will explain the post-treatment instructions and give you a written copy to take home.
