How does laser therapy work?

During laser therapy, a laser emits a highly focused beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (predominately dark colours) in the hair or skin. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles, pigment-producing cells or blood vessels specifically targeted by the laser. Following the laser therapy, your body heals producing new healthy cells which don’t produce the unwanted pigment or hair that was targeted.

Why is laser therapy so good for repairing aged and sun damaged skin?

One of the main benefits of laser treatment is a reduction in the appearance of vascular and pigmented lesions commonly caused by sun damage and ageing. This brightens and evens the complexion and can give a more radiant, less weathered look. During the healing process, new collagen and elastin is formed and when the whole face is treated, smoother skin texture and strengthened barrier function can also be expected. A course of treatments is the safest approach to achieve optimal results, although a reduction can usually be seen after the first treatment.

Does laser therapy hurt?

It is our highly trained and experienced teams job to ensure our clients are comfortable throughout any treatment. Most people describe the sensation of laser therapy as if your skin is being lightly snapped with a rubber band. You may also experience mild discomfort after the procedure, such as redness and irritation similar to a mild sunburn.

How much does Laser therapy cost?

What should I do after laser treatments?
  • Protect the area from sun exposure with a barrier sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and staying in shade as much as possible. Also avoid tanning beds and artificial tanning.
  • Avoid making the face flush, such as with intense exercise, saunas and excess alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Wear mineral makeup to conceal redness the day following your treatment.
  • Avoid active cosmeceuticals for 2-3 days.
  • Leave crusts or flaking skin to slough away naturally.
  • Book a complementary follow up consultation at 4 weeks after your last treatment to assess your result.
Who should not have laser Treatments?

Those who are: pregnant, have active skin disorders in the area, currently unwell, excessive UV exposure in previous two weeks or the following two weeks, those prone to keloid scarring and those on Roaccutane.

Caution is required for patients with darker skin types, a history of melasma or post-inflammatory pigmentation and those on certain medications.

Please inform your therapist of any medical conditions, allergies and medications you are currently or have recently been taking as your treatment settings may need to be adjusted.
