Laser skin rejuvenation is the treatment safe, painless and highly effective procedure which can take years off your face, precisely removing facial imperfections with a laser light beam. If you have fine lines around the eyes or mouth, acne scars, blotches, chicken pox scars or sun-damaged skin, this is the treatment for you.
Shine a light on your skin problems
An extremely thin and precise laser light beam is deployed in the procedure, measuring a mere tenth of the diameter of a hair follicle. When applied to the treated area, the beam performs two tasks: it removes the outer layer of skin, and also penetrates the surface and stimulates the production of younger, smoother skin. What’s more, unlike other treatments of its kind, laser skin rejuvenation is renowned for its lack of side-effects, such as discomfort, bleeding and bruising.
What does laser skin rejuvenation entail?
A typical session lasts between 45 minutes and an hour – although in most cases, you’ll be asked to arrive an hour before the procedure time, in order to receive an application of a topical numbing cream. The number of treatments depends on the condition of your skin: sun damage and brown spots usually take four treatments, and acne scarring removal takes an average of five treatments, which are spaced in intervals between three and six weeks apart.
Healing from laser skin rejuvenation takes up to a week – or at least, you won’t be able to use make-up for that amount of time. You may feel a slight prickly heat sensation at the end of each procedure, but this soon passes. Our patients who have undertaken this procedure always feel it’s worth it, as the final results are outstanding.
