LASER SKIN REJUVENATION (RESURFACING)
PRICE: FROM £50
Laser skin resurfacing removes skin layer by layer with precision. The new skin cells that form during healing give the skin a tighter, younger looking surface. The procedure can be done alone or with other aesthetic procedures on the face.
Laser resurfacing is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenation treatments available and is known for being effective in treating both superficial and deep skin problems, such as acne scarring, wrinkles and pigmentation.
The lasers are used to create beams of thermal energy, which don’t fully ablate (remove) the skin but do penetrate deep enough to tackle stubborn skin complaints.
These laser beams precisely target and vaporise damaged skin, which stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and new damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
The results of laser skin rejuvenation (resurfacing) are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. After 3 to 6 months, more improvement will be noticeable as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen.
WHAT EXACTLY IS LASER SKIN REJUVENATION ?
Laser skin rejuvenation (resurfacing) is a safe and effective way to achieve younger looking skin as well as being effective in treating both superficial and deep skin problems, such as acne scarring, wrinkles and pigmentation.
Aesthetic & Beauty have a variety of laser equipment, allowing us to chose the most suitable equipment option for your treatment.
A mild topical anaesthetic is often applied to the area before your skin resurfacing treatment begins to ensure your comfort. The laser is expertly guided over your skin as it pulses concentrated beams of light to penetrate the surface of the skin. This creates a healing response that rejuvenates the skin a single layer at a time, reducing the likelihood you will experience skin lightening or hyperpigmentation.
This procedure is especially effective in delicate areas as it allows for a high degree of precision.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Laser skin resurfacing has been proven to show improvement of many skin issues, including:
~ Wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, eyes, and forehead
~ Scars resulting from chicken pox or acne
~ Sun and age related skin damage
~ Birthmarks and liver spots
~ Enlarged pores
~ Grayish or yellow skin tones
HOW LONG DOES LASER SKIN REJUVENATION TAKE?
Laser skin rejuvenation (resurfacing) appointments normally last 45 mins to an hour, allowing time for you to get comfortable beforehand and to rebalance after laying down for an extended period.
CAN I COMBINE LASER SKIN REJUVENATION WITH ANOTHER TREATMENT?
Yes! Laser skin rejuvenation (resurfacing) can be combined with many of our body treatments, such as our Shrinking Violet Wrap.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?
Results can begin to appear progressively within a week to ten days as your skin heals naturally and new cells develop. The impressive thing about Laser skin rejuvenation (resurfacing) is that collagen carries on repairing the skin below the surface for months after it has healed on the surface, so your results will get better and better with time.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE LASER SKIN REJUVENATION ?
The specific number of treatments required will be discussed during your free consultation and we will tailor your treatment plan to your goals and desired results, as well as your lifestyle.
HOW WILL I FEEL DURING LASER SKIN REJUVENATION ?
Most clients feel relaxed, and find Laser skin rejuvenation (resurfacing) to be an enjoyable experience, especially when you are laying on our luxury heated treatment bed. A numbing cream will be used on your skin, so that you only feel a slight sensation during the treatment. We regularly check that you are comfortable and enjoying the treatment.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER LASER SKIN REJUVENATION ?
Immediately after the treatment your skin will be red similar to a minor sunburn. This may last a few days and, depending on the type of the treatment, you may also experience some swelling and or flaking of the skin.
To soothe your skin after treatment, we may recommend using certain products, but this may vary with each individual and treatment.
If pigmentation is present on the skin, this may darken soon after treatment and last a few days until it gently flakes away revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.
