How does it work?
Precisely controlled short pulses of light are released that target discolouration (brown and red lesions) to create a more youthful, even complexion. In addition, this light results in the stimulation of the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin. This improves the texture of the skin, evening out lumps and bumps whilst reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. If an Nd:YAG laser is used the skin will also become firmer, tighter and the appearance of scarring can be reduced.
Treatment can be mildly uncomfortable but no anaesthesia is required and most people describe the discomfort as moderate and acceptable, not unlike a quick pin prick and warm sensation. A cooling pack can be applied after treatment to calm the skin. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before they flake off, leading to a more even skin tone. Tightening of the skin should increase over the following months as new collagen is produced within the dermis.
Treatments are carried out every 2 - 3 weeks, and six treatments are recommended for best results. Thereafter, top-up sessions are performed as required but typically once or twice a year.
Are there side effects?
The skin may be quite red and slightly swollen after treatment but this usually subsides quickly. Very rarely a small blister may form and there can be temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. However, most people experience no side effects and any skin reaction usually disappears within a few hours.
Is it suitable for me?
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability and to allow the treatment to be tailored to your needs. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a patch test.
How long does it take?
Treatment times can vary but typically take between 10 - 15 minutes.
