Laser Skin Rejuvenation how it works
A very fine carbon powder is sparingly applied to the pre-cleaned area of skin that is to be treated. This carbon powder in effect acts as a type of sponge, and absorbs dirt from deep within the skins pores. The treatment can also act to reduce the inflammation of acne as well as exfoliating the skin.
Once the carbon powder has been applied, a laser is moved slowly across the surface of the skin by the laser technician. The laser breaks down the carbon powder, taking with it any contaminants that have been absorbed. As this is a thermal treatment, the heat produced from the destruction of the carbon powder has the added benefit of stimulating the collagen in the skin, leaving it appearing noticeably firmer and smoother with diminished fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation faq
Following your treatment, you can expect to see a reduction in pore size, a more even skin tone, improved skin radiance, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and firmer, younger looking skin.
The treatment is pain-free. The process of breaking down the carbon powder with the laser does create a small amount of heat, but this is not at all uncomfortable.
We usually advise clients that 6 sessions will be required in order to obtain the optimum results, although you can expect to see some results after your first session.
The usual time to wait between treatments is around 2 weeks.
The treatment itself can be completed in only a few short minutes, however around 20 minutes of skin preparation is required for best results, so allow around 45 minutes for your first session.
