At London Real Skin we use an Erbium YAG laser to treat many skin conditions such as lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, crepey skin, acne scarring, some type of melasma, enlarged pores and stretch marks. The laser produces energy in the mid infrared invisible light spectrum which can be used to precisely target skin and water-holding tissue, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This creates a controlled thermal injury or wound that leads to remodelling of collagen (the protein in the skin that controls skin strength and elasticity).
What are the benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Skin resurfacing can successfully treat skin a number of skin concerns including age spots, scars, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles and crow’s feet.
The results will vary depending on the concern you are treating, however, clients have reported that their skin feels tighter and plumper, their pigmentation cleared, and their fine lines appear softened.
What is involved in Laser Skin Resurfacing?
During a consultation, one of our practitioners will examine your skin. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.
The skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution prior to treatment. A topical aesthetic will be applied onto the skin and left on for about 20 minutes for comfort. The practitioner will remove the anaesthetic, re-cleanse the skin and commence treatment.
Immediately after, the skin will feel hot and appear red. Your practitioner will give you aftercare instructions to follow and may apply ointment to soothe the area. Clients can appreciate dramatic results once the skin has completely healed.
Photos will be taken after the procedure, and this allows the practitioner to compare the results. Improvement of the skin can be seen after 1 session although we recommend a course of 3 treatments with one treatment every 4 to 6 weeks for optimal results.
