How Facial Laser works
Benefits of Laser Resurfacing
Although skin resurfacing cannot produce perfect skin, it can improve the appearance of your skin. Potential risks of the procedure include:
- Burns or other injuries from the laser’s heat
- Changes in the skin’s pigmentation, including areas of darker or lighter skin
- Reactivating herpes cold sores
- Bacterial infection
Fractional CO2 Laser treatment
The fractional CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser is an effective laser for the treatment of acne scarring. The new “fractional” technology treats only a portion of the skin, leaving healthy intact skin surrounding the treatment area. This allows for fast healing and very safe treatments for all skin types.
Q- Switched Laser Treatment
The Q-switched laser is used to remove unwanted brown spots, sun freckles, or tattoos from your skin. The laser energy pulse, which is in billionths of a second, releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body. A single treatment usually removes greater than 75-100% of an individual brown spot. A second or, on rare occasions, a third treatment, may be needed to completely neutralize the color.
Spectra® Laser Peel (Nd-YAG 1064 Qsw Carbon Suspension Peels)
This is a carbon-assisted laser skin treatment that utilises a photo-thermal effect and photo-chemical superficial peeling to control acne inflammation, reduce sebum production, unplug pores and minimize pore size. The Spectra Peel will also improve the appearance of acne scars, uneven pigmentation and poor skin texture. Dead skin, sebum, skin oils and colonizing bacteria (Proprionibacterium acnes) clog pore openings (blackheads and whiteheads) and enlarged pore size all contribute to acne. This safe and non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure is highly effective in controlling oily skin and sebaceous activity; unclogs and minimizes pores to reduce breakouts and improve appearance.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
IPL skin rejuvenation is a common cosmetic procedure designed to produce a clear, healthy and beautiful complexion. There are a variety of specific skin issues that can be solved using IPL, from certain types of conditions, to blemishes, wrinkles, the effects of ageing, and more. In this guide, you will learn more about the procedure, the process, the technology, and the benefits.
