High-Pulse Blue Laser (HPBL®) Treatment & Regenerative Laser Treatment

How does the treatment help me in my skin recovery?


When HPBL® comes in contact with your affected skin areas, the unique pressure gradient energy of HPBL® initiates the regrowth and repair mechanisms of the skin's tissue by modulating the tissue matrix to release growth factors and healing properties continuously.




What do I have to bring or wear to the treatment session?


Please wear loose clothing or clothing that do not cover your affected areas. For patients with large affected areas, clothing may be removed. Gentlemen may bring a pair of boxers. Ladies will be provided with a tube gown to change into; you may bring a pair of shorts to wear underneath the gown. Please bring along your Dr DF Cell Renewal Complex Serum for application after the treatment.




Will I experience any pain during the treatment?


HPBL® is a gentle cold laser which means that it is at body temperature. During the treatment, you will experience a light, warm sensation on your skin. In the case of open and oozing wounds, you may experience a mild, tolerable stinging sensation.




How many sessions will I need? How often must I come for the treatment?


Sessions usually begin at a frequency of once a week. The number of sessions you will need for complete recovery depends on the severity of your condition.




Will I experience a flare-up during the treatment?


The HPBL® treatment helps to reduce the intensity or severity of the flare-up.




Does the treatment have any side effects or downtime?
