Laser Facials target different layers of the skin to address different skin concerns. Ablative lasers remove the outermost layer, ridding the face of dull dead skin cells. Lasers that penetrate into the dermis break-up clumps of pigment and stimulate the production of collagen. Skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and melasma can all be treated with the correct laser treatment.
At Harpenden Skin Clinic, our expert skin care professionals are trained in the latest laser techniques. After taking a detailed analysis of your skin, your physician will recommend a laser facial that is right for your skin type and your skin goals. At Harpenden Skin Clinic you are in capable hands, so you can relax into your treatment, knowing that soon your skin will feel hydrated, radiant and ultimately more youthful.
Lasers are non-invasive meaning pain is kept to a minimum. Patients report the sensation of an elastic band being snapped against the skin or a warm tingly feeling as the laser moves across the face. This may cause temporary discomfort.
For optimal results, your physician may recommend up to six sessions. This depends on your skin goals. For example, several sessions may be needed to successfully break-up pigment and reduce the appearance of pigmentation or sunspots.
Skin will feel brighter immediately as new skin cells reflect more light. Improvements will continue to be seen over the course of the next month as collagen is restored.
Laser treatments are considered to be long-lasting, however, the results are not permanent. Patients should maintain a good home skincare regime and use sun cream to prolong results.
