Which Laser Resurfacing Is Right for You?
During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss your needs and assess your suitability for treatment so that your Laser Resurfacing treatment can achieve your desired results.
The Erbium Yag laser is for superficial skin concerns, such as minor wrinkles, because it doesn’t travel very deeply into the skin. This laser resurfacing is mild compared to the others we offer at sk:n and so has a shorter recovery time because it is very targeted
The Fraxel laser has two treatment modes – one to specifically target wrinkles and acne scarring, and the other to effectively combat pigmentation, uneven skin tone and superficial signs of ageing. The Fraxel laser also treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. Fraxel treatment is not suitable for people with skin type 4 – 6.
The CO2RE laser is a Carbon Dioxide laser, which offers four different treatment modes, ranging from reducing the appearance of pores on the uppermost layer of your skin, to working deep into the dermis to smooth the appearance of acne scars. Whatever your concern, CO2RE can help, especially if you are looking for a deep resurfacing treatment.
Are there alternative treatments to laser resurfacing?
If you aren’t sure if this treatment is right for your skin concern, we offer a wide range of treatments to rejuvenate your skin. Our skin peels are hugely popular, especially if you are getting ready for a big event and want to look your best. We also offer microneedling which can be a highly effective treatment for lines, wrinkles and sun-damaged skin.
Can I go out in the sun after treatment?
Your skin will definitely be more sensitive to the sun for up to a year after treatment. Wear a high factor sun cream such as sk:n SPF 30 on the treated area, even when it is cloudy. This dual-action product will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays whilst nourishing and hydrating your skin.
Can laser resurfacing remove acne scars?
This is a very effective treatment for acne scarring. The level of reduction will depend on the type and depth of the acne scar. Your doctor will discuss expected treatment results with you during your consultation.
Does laser resurfacing hurt?
Prior to treatment, your doctor will numb the area using a local anaesthetic to ensure minimal discomfort throughout. Where there is a larger area to treat, it may be necessary to carry out the treatment under general anaesthetic in a local hospital. We will talk you through the whole process in your consultation.
How long does laser resurfacing take to heal?
This will depend on the treatment area and the type of laser used. Your skin will be red for a few days and the skin will then begin to peel which may last 7-10 days. We will confirm all of this during your initial consultation.
How many treatments do I need?
Many of our clients see amazing results from just one treatment. The specific number of sessions required will be discussed in your initial consultation and your doctor will tailor your treatment plan to your goals and desired results, as well as your lifestyle.
How much does laser resurfacing cost?
This will depend on the area required and the number of treatments. One treatment for half face starts from £635. You will make a saving if you purchase a course of three.
Is laser resurfacing permanent?
Results will last for a long time, but they are not permanent. Your skin will continue to age, so you may need further treatments in the future.
What does laser resurfacing do?
Laser resurfacing removes the damaged outer layer of skin, which then encourages new skin to grow. This can effectively remove or reduce scars, lines and wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, pigmentation and rough skin.
What downtime is required?
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will be red, similar to a sunburn. This may last a few days and, depending on the type of treatment, you may also experience some swelling and or flaking of the skin. If pigmentation is present on the skin, this may darken soon after treatment and last a few days until it gently flakes away revealing fresher, glowing and smoother skin.
What kind of results should I expect?
Results can begin to appear progressively within a week to ten days as your skin heals naturally and new cells develop. The impressive thing about laser resurfacing is that collagen carries on repairing the skin below the surface for months after it has healed on the surface, so your results will get better and better with time.
Will I need time off work?
You may need to take some time off work initially whilst your skin is healing. Your doctor will advise you on the recovery time of your treatment during your consultation.
