Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
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 the new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased.
Additionally, years of sun exposure can cause discoloration, 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 a marked improvement.
Laser skin rejuvenation does not affect the outer layers of skin, so there is no downtime or prolonged healing process at all.
Laser skin rejuvenation is an ideal treatment for those that desire to:
- Reduce oiliness of the skin
- Shrink pore size
- Improve facial laxity and textural problems
- Minimise skin discolourations
- Reduce visibility of acne scars
- Diminish fine lines and creases
How does it work?
Unlike laser skin resurfacing, laser skin rejuvenation does not actually remove the outermost layers of the skin. Skin rejuvenation uses a gentle laser to pass light harmlessly through the upper layer of skin allowing the laser heat to stimulate collagen growth deep beneath your skin.
This collagen will continue to develop after the treatment. Over the next months, your body will slowly and naturally fill in wrinkles and scars on its own. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin. The result is smoother, healthier skin with fewer fine lines, pigmentation and other imperfections.
Is laser skin rejuvenation right for me?
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 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.
