Why choose Laser photo-facial skin rejuvenation?
Have you always dreamed of having a glowing, radiant and even complexion? No blemishes, no marks, no filter to apply on your photos and no make up before you leave the house? Do you have unwanted redness, broken veins or sun damage that has left your skin with unsightly discolouration or pigmentation and freckles? Maybe you feel your skin is dull and is in need for for some TLC and rejuvenation?
Look no further, at Skin Perfection London, we have just the solution to transform your skin and reveal your true glowing complexion that you truly deserve and desire.
With the advanced and powerful Palomar Starlux 500 by Cynosure, your treatment will not only be effective and comfortable, but you can also treat a number of skin conditions, including:
- Reverse the signs of sun damage to your face, neck, chest, arms and backs of the hands
- Remove unwanted facial veins
- Reduce uneven skin tone and rosacea
- Remove individual pigmented lesions
- Treats inflammation and redness
- Treats individual vessels, which can be red, blue or purple in colour
- Reduce pore size
- Reduce and soften fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. This is a great alternative to injectable treatments because the heat from the laser also has a tightening effect on your skin and helps reduce open pores
- If combined with skin peels photo-facial can successfully address acne and bacteria that causes spots and inflammation, together with the right skin care recommended by your skin expert
Photo-facial laser treatment can be combined with light facial peels to enhance and boost your results. If you have deeper correction or suffer from acne, your practitioner will always recommend you to combine photo-facial rejuvenation with an advanced skin peel for the ultimate results.
Your questions answered
How does the treatment work?
The laser treatment works by emitting a selected amount of light energy that is selected specifically to pick up any brown lesions (sun damage, freckling, discolouration etc) and or any red lesions (broken veins, thread veins, redness or rosacea). As the heat is emitted it tightens your skin and stimulates collagen and elastin while also reducing any open pores.
The hand piece is designed to recycle any energy that left the skin so that no energy is lost and you get the maximum result out of your treatment. The hand piece also has a constant cooling tip to aid comfort throughout the procedure.
After your treatment some of the targets such as the spots or broken veins may appear worse as the laser is bringing out the skin concerns. After about 10 to 14 days this fades and your skin starts to look smoother and clearer.
Is it safe?
The Palomar laser treatment is fast, safe and, with improved contact skin cooling, offers a more comfortable treatment with minimal downtime compared to other facial laser treatments.
Is it suitable for all skin types?
This treatment is only suitable for skin types 1 to 3 and light skin type 4. If you’re not sure what skin type you are please call us for a consultation. And we will have alternative treatment options for you as well.
Does it hurt?
The treatment does feel quite warm, which can last a few hours. We recommend you to apply cool packs after the treatment to help your skin cool down.
How long will my skin stay red?
Your skin may feel a little sore and stay red for a few hours. You could also get some swelling around the eyes and on the cheeks, which can last a few days.
Will I need a patch test?
Yes, you will need a patch test 48 hours before your first treatment.
Can I go into the sun?
For best results, we advise you to avoid the sun. If you have a slight tan we cannot treat you for at least 6 weeks from the last day of sun exposure. At this point a new skin test will be carried out 48 hours before your treatment could resume.
Can I combine with any other treatments?
The treatment itself is very effective, though you could add a peel to enhance the results and target more specific concerns such as acne and rosacea.
If your skin expert feels you will benefit from this added treatment she will discuss these options during your initial consultation.
