How does laser skin rejuvenation work?
Collagen provides the support network to our skin. As we age, the collagen breaks down causing lines and wrinkles. The laser works by stimulating collagen production as it is able to penetrate up to 5mm into the skin, much further than any commercial skin products. As the new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, years of sun exposure can cause discolouration, large pores, and pigmented or red areas on the skin. Patients report, and studies have confirmed, that this procedure results in a refreshed appearance, smoother skin texture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with difficult acne scarring will also notice some improvement.
Types of laser rejuvenation
- Laser ‘toning’
quick and painless, this treatment is for younger and less sun damaged skin. Requires 4-6 treatments initially with on going maintenance.
- Intensive rejuvenation
for the more sun damaged and older skin. This treatment involves a combination of wave lengths in the one treatment. Also 4-6 treatments initially with on going regular maintenance.
- Laser ‘peel’
For severely pigmented areas (face,hands,neck & décolletage.) this treatment is moderately painful, and involves some social down time during healing (crusting, peeling, redness). However it is very successful at reducing freckling, secondary to excessive sun exposure. Post treatment care must be followed.
May require up to 3 treatments.
Why should I choose this procedure?
Because the action of laser skin rejuvenation is non ablative (does not remove any skin) there are many benefits over other traditional laser procedures. The laser treatment is quick and mostly offers no downtime – you can immediately return to your normal activities. There is minimal discomfort, and a very low risk of any complications. Patients will experience progressive improvement over several months for a fresh, natural look. Laser skin rejuvenation is compatible with a whole host of other cosmetic procedures so that maximum results can be achieved.
Is the procedure safe?
The Revlite laser used for skin rejuvenation is one of the safest lasers on the market today. This technology has been around since 1992. In the hands of trained medical professionals, the Revlite laser offers a safe and effective treatment with very little risk of complications. Patients of all skin types can be safely treated – including tanned skin.
What body areas can be treated?
The laser can be used to rejuvenate many body areas including the face, hands, neck and chest.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process just like aging. Usually patients need 4-6 treatments spaced at 2-4 weeks apart. Many patients choose to return for maintenance treatments after the initial treatment sessions end.
What does the procedure feel like?
Laser skin rejuvenation is usually not painful. Many describe the feeling as a tingling sensation. Anaesthesia is usually not necessary, but you may request a topical cream depending on your own experience.
What can I expect after the treatment?
This procedure eliminates the recovery associated with other ablative laser skin resurfacing treatments. Laser skin rejuvenation, (except laser peel) does not remove any surface skin or cause any visible effect beyond a mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. No specific care is needed after treatment, although you may be asked to avoid sun and some skin products for a period of time after the treatment. It is important to follow your physician’s instructions exactly.
How do I get started?
