SKIN REJUVENATION AND MELASMA TREATMENT
The Our fractional laser, Palomar Starlux 1540, is a revolutionary technology which offers a break-though in skin rejuvenation without the risks of surgery. The fractional laser is for adults who are beginning to see the effects of ageing and sun exposure.
With aging the following can occur to the skin:
1) Loss of tone - the skin becomes loose
2) Wrinkles develop
3) Pigmentation (spots) and discolouration. When this occurs due to excessive sun exposure it is know as laser bronzing.
This treatment effectively, efficiently and safely minimises the appearance of solar bronzing and wrinkles whilst improving the overall skin texture. Our laser treats ALL of the changes listed above and is the gold standard treatment for skin rejuvenation.
Loss of collagen in the skin contributes to wrinkles and skin sagging. The skin is given support, plumping, elasticity and moisture from collagen, resulting in firmness and skin tightening. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun, dietary toxins, and unhealthy habits such as smoking and consuming alcohol are all contributors of collagen breakdown. This loss can be alleviated with fractional laser, a method that removes dead skin cells and stimulates the dermal layer of skin to produce new collagen and remodel the collagen that is already there. These changes are PERMANENT.
Benefits of Fractional Laser Skin Rejuvenation
What to Expect During the Treatment
The fractional laser treatment can take between 10- 30 minutes, depending on the surface area being targeted. Clients are given a consultation where our board certified specialist will prescribe a treatment course to suit individual skin concerns. The treatment involves simply lying on a comfortable bed while the fractional laser is calibrated with depth and density settings. During the treatment, a prickling sensation can be felt as skin is treated with short, precise and concentrated pulsating beams of light. These micro beams penetrate well below the surface layer of skin, effectively eliminating deep pigmentation, scarring, acne and other skin concerns. Immediately after the treatment, redness may occur which will subside within 24 hours.
What to Expect After the Treatment
After treatment, a pinkish or reddish tone can be anticipated as well as a slightly sunburnt sensation for approximately 1 to 2 days. This can be covered up with make up immediately after treatment. You can carry on with your usual daily activities. However it is important to avoid significant sun exposure.
