What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a revolutionary, safe, non-invasive treatment that targets a range of skin concerns. These include acne, acne scarring, rosacea, redness and capillaries, uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and skin laxity. If you’re concerned about any of the above, please speak to us today about our Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatments.
What type of Laser Skin Rejuvenation equipment do you use at Southern Cosmetics?
At Southern Cosmetics, we use three non-ablative platforms for our laser skin rejuvenation: Laser Genesis, LaseMD™ Ultra and Fotona 4D.
Our Laser Genesis machine effectively treats acne, acne scarring, redness, and rosacea. Scientifically proven to produce new collagen for treating excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, scarring and fine lines.
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
A key benefit of Laser Genesis treatments is that there is little or no downtime and no anaesthetic is required. You can simply pop in during your lunch break, and walk out with a gorgeous glow and fresh new look. Any redness you experience will usually subside within a few hours.
LaseMD™ Ultra is a non-ablative fractional Thulium Laser (1927nm). The 1927nm wavelength of the LaseMD means that the energy is preferentially absorbed by superficial targets in the skin such as sun spots, freckles, pigmented lesions and actinic keratosis. It also delivers heat to the skin, prompting collagen remodelling which targets fine lines and skin texture. It does so safely by delivering this highly focused and powerful energy in a fractionated pattern, this means that only a fraction of the skin is treated at one time. This leaves the healthy tissue surrounding the treated area to promote rapid healing, controlling the injury so that we minimise any risks.
What can LaseMD™ treat?
- Solar Keratosis
- Solar Lentigines
- Ephilades / Freckles
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone and texture
Fotona 4D Skin Rejuvenation and Tightening
Achieve a more youthful look with our Fotona 4D non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation treatment! It targets a range of skin imperfections, including skin laxity, lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, uneven skin tone and texture. It also effectively plumps out the nasolabial folds. If injectables aren’t your thing, this could be the perfect treatment to combat your ageing concerns!
What’s great about the Fotona 4D is that it works its magic on both the exterior facial area and the interior oral area to achieve optimal results. It may also be combined with an Erbium Laser Peel – a light laser treatment that reduces surface imperfections and improves the appearance of fine lines and pores.
The 4 steps involved in Fotona 4D tightening and skin rejuvenation are:
- Lifting (Smoothliftinmode)
This step is pain-free and delivered intra-orally to heat and rejuvenate the tissue inside the mouth. This results in tightening inside the oral cavity, which in turn tightens the skin around the nasolabial folds, chin and mouth.
- Rejuvenation (Frac 3mode)
Next, we use the fractionated laser mode. This targets the superficial and deeper layers of the skin and improves imperfections such as sunspots and irregular skin texture. In addition, the heat generated by Frac 3 tightens the skin and induces thermal heat to stimulate collagen formation.
- Skin Tightening (Pianomode)
During this step, we use the laser to heat even deeper into the dermis (the deepest layer of skin) to strengthen deep skin structures and provide further remodeling of the skin. This step allows us to achieve bulk tissue skin tightening.
- Pearl Finish (SupErficial mode)
Lastly, we use light cold Er:YAG ablation to create a pearl finish. We may suggest a resurfacing laser peel, which can immediately brighten and tone the surface of the skin. These treatments help reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pore size. Depending on your needs, the peel can be light, with no downtime, or deeper, with some redness and peeling.
How does a treatment feel?
Our Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatments allow patients to achieve noticeable, enduring results, without pain or downtime. During these laser treatments, you may experience a mild warmth, but there should not be any major discomfort.
Who is Laser Skin Rejuvenation suitable for?
The best way to determine whether you are the right kind of candidate for our Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatments is to book in for a consultation. Your cosmetic specialist with examine your skin and tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs.
When will you notice a change?
Most patients see immediate results, with improvements in tone, texture, and tightness. As you progress through your course of treatments, the results will become more and more evident.
How many sessions are usually required?
The number of treatments required depends on your skin concerns. Usually, we recommend a course of three to six Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatments, performed four weeks apart.
How long will the results last?
The results of Laser Skin Rejuvenation can last for several years, provided you take good care of your skin. Avoiding sun damage and using medical-grade skincare can help prolong the positive effects. Lifestyle choices can also affect the health of your skin – it’s important to get ample sleep, exercise and stay hydrated, for example.
