With age the skin begins to lose its elasticity resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser skin rejuvenation treats these effects and actively firms and tightens the skin. The skin tone is increased and there is a reduction in facial wrinkles and fine lines.
Treatment involves targeting a beam of thermal energy into the dermal layer of the skin. This treatment does not create any visible skin damage. Thermal injury to the dermis is created so that a natural wound-healing process and collagen production is initiated. The results are smooth skin with a glowing youthful appearance.
What conditions can be treated with Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation can treat skin conditions using non-ablative resurfacing techniques. Common treatable skin conditions include: wrinkles, acne scars, skin laxity, birth marks, freckles, blotchy pigmentation, spider veins, rosacea and localised capillaries.
What should I expect from the Laser Rejuvenation treatment?
Laser Rejuvenation is typically performed by administered Anaesthesia. A cool gel is applied to the area being treated followed by a special laser used to resurface the skin. Precise and controlled light beams from the laser vaporize the external layers of skin allowing the smoother skin. The laser rejuvenation treatment also stimulates new growth allowing healthier younger looking skin.
Who is a good candidate for Laser Rejuvenation Treatment?
A good candidate will be dependent on a candidate's overall health and skin type and condition. An initial consultation is required to determine this.
Is there any downtime and how long does it take to heal?
An essential advantage of the laser skin rejuvenation is that there is no downtime. Patients commonly encounter redness, swelling or itchy sensations that can last a few hours. Hereafter you may experience slight peeling or crusting of the skin because the epithelial layer is repairing itself. It takes approximately 10 days for full restoration.
