Laser Skin Rejuvenation
TwinLight laser skin rejuvenation is a simple procedure that can significantly improve the smoothness of skin and give you a healthier look. Laser facial rejuvenation is a gentler alternative to treating wrinkles and fine lines, with excellent results and minimal downtime.
By using fractional light to rejuvenate skin, we are able to produce perfectly graded skin. This technique offers a degree of control and efficiency that allows for precisely sculpted skin
Laser facial rejuvenation treatments range from light anti-ageing touch-ups to deep collagen remodelling, which is ideal for those who don’t want to undergo deeper or surgical treatments, but still want the same rejuvenating effects.
Most skin rejuvenation procedures treat large areas of skin, whether it is affected by the toll of age or not, but TwinLight Fractional Rejuvenation is able to precisely target areas affected by age while leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched.
The heat from the laser stimulates new collagen production (neocollagenesis) to ramp up the rejuvenation process. TwinLight laser skin rejuvenation is suitable for all skin types and tones, and involves minimal downtime.
The first step involves using a Nd:YAG laser, which is passed over the surface of the skin twice. The first pass is to provide the skin with a short stimulus and the second pass is to penetrate the tissue. The second pass heats and conditions the skin for effective fractional treatment therapy.
The Er:YAG Erbium laser is used to ablate the top layer of dull, dry skin. The microablated channels will be replaced by tighter, healthier tissue as new skin forms.
Skin is ablated with an Er:YAG laser to finish the treatment and remove any superficial imperfections. Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers have complementary effects.
The Nd:YAG laser helps to rejuvenate and stimulate the skin, while the Er:YAG laser helps the body form new skin. The Er:YAG laser enables a versatile treatment style by resurfacing the skin.
Some of the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation treatments include:
- Lasting results
- Stimulates the natural rejuvenation of the body
- Varies from light touch-ups to deep optical peels
- Natural looking results
- Minimal downtime
- Fast treatments
- Safe and comfortable procedure
Laser skin rejuvenation uses an ablative laser to take off the top layers of damaged skin to reveal healthy, fresh, rejuvenated skin underneath. Some treatments using laser may require your skin having some time to heal so some downtime may be necessary for some treatments – talk to your practitioner about more intense treatments. The lasers are set to specific wavelengths for specific treatments, and each laser has its own use. Some lasers are best at stripping away damaged or blemished skin, while others are best at smoothing scarring and softening wrinkles.
The skin’s elasticity, texture and clarity can change over time due to the ageing process and sun damage.
Every laser facial rejuvenation treatment is tailored to your individual needs and skin concerns after a consultation at our Melbourne clinic.
Rosacea is a condition that causes redness and in some cases, small, red bumps on the face. The heat from a specific laser is able to target the capillaries that are the cause of the redness associated with rosacea. The heat shrinks the capillaries so the body can reabsorb them and ultimately reduce facial redness by reducing the access of the blood vessels to the surface of the skin. The effects are immediately noticeable and improve over several weeks. Between one and six treatments may be needed, depending on the severity of your rosacea symptoms, and may need to be repeated every few years.
Frown lines, fine lines and wrinkles tend to become more pronounced as we age and some people experience this to a greater extent, and earlier, than others. While some things can help prevent fine lines, frown lines and wrinkles, like avoiding prolonged sun exposure and using moisturiser daily, laser skin rejuvenation treatments reduce the prevalence of deep wrinkles, fine lines and frown lines by levelling out the surface of the skin.
Pigmentation includes blemishes such as freckles and birthmarks. Laser skin rejuvenation stimulates the body’s natural healing process to help reduce most forms of pigmentation, which leaves your body and face evenly toned and smooth. Visible and long-lasting improvement can be seen after every treatment. While all skin types may not be appropriate for this treatment, your suitability will be determined during your consultation at our Melbourne clinic.
Age and liver spots are large brown patches on the skin and are less likely to respond to the treatments used for freckle removal. Age and liver spots are able to be targeted and the pigmentation reduced by laser skin rejuvenation without harming the surrounding skin. The appropriate type of pigmentation laser will be chosen depending on your skin type during your consultation at our Melbourne clinic.
Laser skin rejuvenation stimulates the skin’s natural healing response to promote cellular renewal and collagen synthesis. Uneven skin textures, stretched tissue and indentations are able to be remodelled and repaired.
Laser skin rejuvenation increases collagen production and evens out the texture of the skin, which reduces the appearance of acne scarring. The number of laser facial rejuvenation treatments depends on the severity of scarring, but will likely require some downtime.
Laser skin rejuvenation treatments target the capillaries that cause the redness and set your body up to remove them, allowing the body to reabsorb them. The treatment can result in a significant improvement in skin tone and texture.
The texture of your skin is evened out using laser skin rejuvenation treatments to stimulate collagen production by fibroblasts and reduce the appearance of any imperfections. The frequency and intensity of this treatment will be decided depending on your individual skin type and concerns by our clinicians at our Melbourne clinic.
Melasma is a skin condition causing increased pigmentation on the skin, and can be treated with laser skin rejuvenation treatments by stimulating the body’s innate healing process to even out skin tone. Melasma may take a prolonged treatment program, as it can be difficult to treat.
The recovery time for laser skin rejuvenation varies between the different treatments and the intensity, but can take from 0-14 days – not all laser rejuvenation has downtime, with many treatments being walk-in walk-out. Your clinician will discuss what to expect and aftercare in more detail at your appointment.
Laser skin rejuvenation can work wonders on just about any skin type, and help with most skin conditions. We can give you a personal assessment and establish what treatments your skin would benefit from the most, and give you a complete anti-ageing make-over, or just a spruce up in time for a special event, party, or celebration, or just because. Stay looking good with laser skin rejuvenation at our Melbourne laser skin rejuvenation clinic.
