Under local anaesthesia, laser skin treatments rejuvenate the face and stimulate collagen production. They also remove superficial scars and fine wrinkles useful content. Combining laser treatments with liposuction can be beneficial. For example, when fat is removed around the chin, jaw and neck, the skin could become saggy or wrinkled. Lasers help to tighten and smooth the skin, giving a more defined chin line after liposuction.
Skin Lasers remove the outer skin layer to reveal younger skin. By heating deeper layers of skin, the laser stimulates collagen production. Lasers may be used in specific areas on the face, or they can cover the whole face. Facial treatment can change the skin’s pigmentation. It is not recommended to people with dark-skinned skin. The repetitive movements of the facial muscles cause wrinkles to form as we age. Diet, exposure to sun and smoking are all factors that can affect our skin’s ageing. Skin Laser Treatments can be used to eliminate acne scars, birthmarks, fine lines, and uneven skin pigmentation.
Laser treatments for the face are performed with a local anaesthetic. This means you can be awake during the treatment and return to your home soon after. Your eyes will be protected during the procedure by goggles. You may feel some discomfort after treatment and need an analgesic to relieve pain. You may have skin redness that lasts up to six month. For 12 months following laser treatment you must protect your skin and use sunscreen. After one laser facial treatment, the skin will improve. However, it may take several treatments to achieve the desired outcome. Discuss your expectations with your therapist prior to treatment and ask about the number of treatments required.
