What is the science behind laser Skin Rejuvenation?

Collagen is the essential support network in our skin. As we grow older, collagen tends to break down, causing wrinkles and lines. Sun exposure tends to damage collagen, and can cause pigment issues (brown spots), uneven tone and leathery or rough texture. Lasers use a precise wavelength (monochromatic) of light energy to engage a target underneath the skin thus stimulating collagen production. As new collagen is manufactured, the lines and wrinkles are reduced.  Laser therapy helps to create a refreshed look, smoother texture, even skin tone, and it decreases the pore size.

What Equipment is used for the procedure?

Etherea Mx , Acroma (Q-Switched Nd:YAG) uses Photo Acoustic  energy to vibrate and re-organize the collagen under the skin. This stimulates long-term collagen remodelling. This is a non-ablative laser and does not damage the surface of the skin.

How much Time will it take for the procedure?

Non-ablative laser treatments are quick, and it takes about 20 minutes for a full face and it require no downtime.

Is it a risky procedure?

There is minimal discomfort, and there is a very low risk of any complications. Patients feels a difference immediately and they experience progressive improvement over many months.

Laser skin rejuvenation can cause a mild to moderate redness, which will usually fade within an hour or so after the treatment.  Many people have described the feeling of non-ablative laser treatment as a tingling sensation. Topical Anaesthesia is usually not required, but you may request an anaesthetic cream.

How many sessions do I need?

You usually require four to six treatments spaced 3-5 weeks apart.
