Get the Lowdown on Laser ‘Facials’ for skin rejuvenation

From skin tightening to reducing redness, lasers are the latest advanced treatment for anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation for both the body and face.

How does a laser facial work? 

Laser technology transmits light energy into specific layers of the skin tissue to cause controlled trauma.  The trauma triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response resulting in skin rejuvenation due to the increased production of collagen and new skin cell growth. Due to this effective result, lasers can be used to treat a myriad of skin conditions and there is a vast range of laser machines to treat different conditions such as loose, saggy skin or reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimise the appearance of scarring as well as reducing pigmentation and rosacea.

With just a few treatments you can improve the appearance of uneven skin and you’ll notice a more radiant complexion.  It is recommended to have 3-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks. 

Fractional Laser treatments for anti-ageing and resurfacing

Fractional technology works by using tiny pins to safely deliver heat through the surface of the skin,  the body then repairs these micro-wounds stimulate fibroblasts to regenerate and repair collagen and improves the appearance of skin as fine lines, wrinkles and pores are minimised. 

What to Expect After your Fractional treatment

Your skin may go red and feel tight, this mild redness can last for 24-48 hours.  After 24 hours you can wear make-up if you want to cover up any remaining pinkness.  After 2-3 days your skin can feel dry and this can last for a few days but you should not get any peeling and it can be soothed with moisturiser. 

This resurfacing treatment is proven to reduce acne scarring, minimise enlarged pores, diminish redness and improve the tone and texture of the skin. 

Best results will come approximately 3 months after your last treatment because of your skin’s natural renewal process, but many people see the resurfacing benefits after just one session. 

IPL Photofacial to reduce pigmentation and red veins:

IPL technology delivers light deep into the skin, which generates heat when absorbed by the unwanted pigments and vascular lesions (small red veins). The heat breaks down the dark pigment inside the pigmentation such as age spots and freckles leaving skin looking clearer and more toned.

This professional treatment can help to reduce the signs of sun damage, minimise rosacea/ hyperpigmentation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Having regular IPL facials can prevent premature skin ageing and can be performed on multiple areas of the body such as the neck and upper chest.

IPL is powerful enough to access the deeper layer of the dermis but gentle enough not to cause any excessive swelling, redness or lasting irritation.

What to Expect after your IPL Treatment

Treatments usually last about 30 minutes and 4 or 5 of these quick treatments every 3-4 weeks give clients a wonderful result. Always avoid sun exposure in the few weeks before and after all laser treatments and use a high SPF.
