LASER SKIN TIGHTENING & FLUSHING

LASER SKIN TIGHTENING

Our Laser Skin Tightening treatments are safe, non-invasive procedures that will help you attain tight, smoother skin. The procedure targets collagen fibres found in the deeper dermal compartments of the skin, triggering new collagen formation and improving facial contours. Candela YAG Laser is a revolutionary device that will smooth out fine wrinkles and plump up and sculpt sagging and lax skin.

After the age of 30, we lose about 1% of collagen fibres throughout our body per year. The deeper layers of our skin (dermis) are composed of 75% collagen. It is this integral structural component that gives the skin its youthful resiliency and elasticity. Unfortunately, as we age, our skin stops producing new collagen and we end up with saggy, wrinkled, and ageing skin.

BENEFITS FOR LASER  SKIN TIGHTENING

  • Increase the collagen production / skin rejuvenating
  • Tighter & toned skin (face , neck decolletage  , tummy)
  • Slowing down ageing process/ delaying ageing process
  • Reduce fine line & wrinkles
  • Reduced facial redness or persistently red cheeks
  • Decrease in skin inflammation

 

 

Collagen is a water laden protein fibre. The Candela YAG Laser works through a process known as ‘selective photo thermolysis’ that heats up the water in the collagen fibre at specific temperatures and utilizes focused wavelengths to naturally induce new collagen formation (also known as collagenases). This gentle yet focused heating will slowly rearrange, redistribute, and realign new collagen fibres within the dermis of the skin, resulting in facial contouring and rejuvenation.

The procedure can be performed on the face or any other part of the body such as the décolleté, hands, arms, abdomen, thighs, and legs. The usual protocol is a treatment plan spanning 3-5 months, where a total of 3-5 sessions are required to achieve optimal benefit.

 

LASER FOR FLUSHING 

Rosacea, facial and diffused redness develop as we age. Small capillaries in the skin become dilated (more visible to the naked eye) and can give the appearance of red spots or blotches and general face redness.

These conditions are treated using Candela YAG Laser. The heat from the laser heats up the blood haemoglobin in the area to be treated. The laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessel and creates heat within the vessel which damages the vessel wall and permanently closes the vessel. The treated vessels are then absorbed by the body. Follow up treatments ensure that the removed blood vessels are not naturally replaced by the body and this will permanently reduce the number of blood vessels in the face to levels similar to vessels found in healthy skin.

PRE – TREATMENT CARE

 

Please avoid the sun for two weeks before treatment.  We will double clean the skin under the steam.   Add-on Microdermabrasion highly recommended.  Tanned skin is not able to be treated as this may cause blistering or hypo-pigmentation.  Clients with darker skin types may have an increased risk of hypo-pigmentation.  Clients taking high doses of iron may have an increased risk of hyper-pigmentation.  Do not use Roaccutane for 6 months prior to treatment.

POST - TREATMENT CARE

 

( no or minimal down time)

The heat from the laser may be mildly uncomfortable during and immediately after treatment.  Avoid sun exposure for 48 hours and wear sunscreen.  Pure mineral makeup is recommended.   Avoid strenuous exercise 24 hours post after treatment.   Avoid topical medications and active skin care products for 48 hours.

We use an advanced laser technology machine for our skin tightening treatments. The laser heats up the skin to 40 degrees which stimulates blood cells to improve the collagen productIon. This process works to smooth the fine lines and wrinkles and improve the texture and elasticity of the skin.
