Laser therapy at my Munich dermatology clinic
As in many other branches of medicine, it is these days impossible to imagine dermatology without different laser systems. I use this ground-breaking method of treatment in various forms and emphases at my clinic, in order to offer my patients not only precise and pin-point interventions on the skin, but in particular also the gentle, minimally stressful and largely side-effect-free treatment possible using lasers.
The range is very wide. I would be pleased to offer you my well-founded expertise and advice on gentle laser therapy for the skin and genital area.
Flash lamps, IPL (intense pulsed light) in dermatology
Pulsed light systems have become very important particularly within the field of dermatology over recent years. As a dermatologist, these give me the option of flexibly choosing the wavelength of the light as well as the irradiation time. In this way, I can eliminate certain pigmentations, hair or changes to the blood vessels of the epidermis that are perceived as disturbing.
Laser and IPL treatments at my Munich dermatology clinic
I treat haemangiomas as well as port-wine stains (PWS) using the IPL system (Nordlys). I have gained profound expertise for this at the Department of Dermatology of Regensburg University. In comparative studies, it was confirmed that this treatment method works better than a dye laser.
Further indications for IPL are enlarged blood vessels on the face (couperose) as they occur in rosacea and inflammatory acne. Also, pigmented changes such as age spots as well as annoying hair can be gently removed with the flash lamp.
To treat thicker or deeper vessels, the long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser is used, which is also used to treat nail fungus.
Using skin-removing lasers (ablative Er:YAG and CO2 laser), actinic keratoses, warts such as senile warts and genital warts, scars, syringomas and xanthelasma can be easily removed and wrinkled skin and acne scars smoothed out with the fractionated handpiece.
Brand new: vaginal tightening
Intravaginal laser therapies using fractionated Er:YAG and CO2 lasers are used for vaginal mucosal atrophy. Over time, there are structural changes in the vaginal area and around the urethra. The collagen fibres lose strength. Fractionated laser treatment leads to reconstruction and tightening (collagen shrinking) of the connective tissue, which leads to rejuvenation and tightening of the vaginal wall. It improves vaginal dryness, reduces recurring infections. Any slight urinary incontinence is also positively influenced.
