What is a Laser Facial?

A Laser Facial is an effective solution that helps treat a number of skin concerns, including skin texture and tone, wrinkles, acne, collagen production and some forms of pigmentation.

Using laser energy with long wavelengths that penetrate deeply without injuring the top layer of skin, the deep dermis is stimulated to produce natural collagen and other vital proteins. This results in the resurfacing of your skin, giving it a healthy and youthful appearance.

Q-Switched Alexandrite Laser Facial treatment technology

We use only the most advanced, non-invasive and up-to-date medical-grade technology in our laser face resurfacing treatments.

The Q-Switched Alexandrite laser is an adaptable premium-engineered aesthetic machine designed for treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions and concerns. It is easy to use and can target a wide variety of skin imperfections, including tattoo inks, due in part to its longer wavelength (1064nm) which penetrates into the skin to actively target specific areas. This allows it to address deeper problems such as deep pigmentation removal.

This makes Q-Switched one of the most effective and efficient machines in the cosmetic industry for facial resurfacing and other laser facial treatments.

Q-Switched is known for their photo-mechanical effects, featuring a combination of high power and short pulse widths (less than 20 nanoseconds – one nanosecond is equivalent to one billionth of a second) that deliver energy throughout the layers of the epidermis, faster than the normal relaxation time of the tissue. This process safely breaks down and shatters small particles comprising the discolouration or skin lesion, which are then later removed by the body’s immune system.

Your medically trained and certified expert clinician at our clinics will determine and recommend the frequency of laser facial treatments you need for your face based on your individual skin type and skin concerns. The treatment is non-invasive, almost painless and can be completed in less than fifteen minutes, making them a superior solution to invasive surgical procedures for wrinkles and scarring.

What can it treat?

A laser facial treatment is a revolutionary method performed with photo-acoustic technology. Skin conditions that can be improved include texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, enlarged pores and congestion. It can also remove freckles, age spots and the results of hormonal hyper-pigmentation.

Who is the treatment suitable for?

The face treatments can be extremely effective for those with lighter skin tones, elastic and non-oily skin. They work well for addressing skin concerns such as lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and superficial facial scarring. However, the procedure is not suitable for those suffering from active acne. It can be beneficial for those with darker tones, but may not be as effective; if you are unsure, come to our clinics for a consultation and we can advise you on the best method for your skin type and concerns.

Laser Facial Resurfacing

Laser facial resurfacing treatments are an effective way to improve your appearance. They reduce wrinkles, tightens the surface, reverse sun damage and improves texture. This technique can also correct some pigmentation problems and help reduce scarring caused by acne, trauma or burns. Laser light is used to regenerate the cells, removing a thin layer to reveal the fresh layer beneath.

Before & After Photo’s

The before and after photo’s below show how Laser Facial treatment is particularly effective in the treatment of freckles and other types of pigmentation. Freckles are caused as the skin produces melanin in an attempt to protect itself from the harsh rays of the sun. Laser Facial treatment for the face is beneficial for this condition as the melanin absorbs the light from the laser and is destroyed by it. Age spots and melasma also have the same root cause, and can also be successfully treated in this manner.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How long does it take?

Treatments generally take anywhere between five to ten minutes, but can take as long as thirty minutes depending on the concern being treated.

How many treatments do I need?

For best results, we recommend four to ten sessions in a course. Maintenance treatments are then highly recommended for one to three months. This ensures you get the best, long-lasting results from your treatment.

How often can I have a Laser Facial?

Laser Facial is typically performed every two to five weeks. However this may vary, depending on the each individual’s skin type and concerns.

What will my skin look like after a Laser Facial resurfacing treatment?

You may experience a mild sunburn sensation for five to ten minutes following a session. The skin may be slightly flushed with a warm glow that can last for several hours. Some people find that the deep pore cleansing advantages may bring congestion to the surface, leading to break outs that may occur in the following week. Fortunately these break outs are only temporary and are nothing to be concerned by.

What is the difference between a standard facial and a Laser Facial?

A laser facial is a revolutionary treatment in aesthetic technology. Standard facials focus on creating a relaxing experience involving aromatherapy and massages. Though they leave you feeling calm, relaxed and pampered, they do so without providing any significantly lasting improvements to your skin concerns. However, with laser facial treatments you will notice your complexion looking and feeling much softer, smoother and fresher for much longer compared to having the standard facial. Benefits include deep pore cleansing, and a reduction in wrinkles, acne scars, some forms of pigmentation, as well as stimulation of collagen, which improves the appearance of fine lines. Many patients say their skin has never felt cleaner afterwards.

Does it hurt?

The treatments are pain-free and very comfortable. The surface area being treated may experience a warm sensation; however this will not be painful. Furthermore, any lingering sensations usually disappear within the following few hours.

Care before and after a Laser Facial treatment

To get the best out of your resurfacing, we advise following the guidelines listed below. Doing so will prepare your skin to absorb the most benefits from the procedure, and will also give your sensitive post-treatment skin the best protection in its recovery phase.
