Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Laser stimulates collagen production in our skin, and as new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin. Patients report, and studies have also confirmed that laser skin rejuvenation results in a refreshed appearance, smoother skin texture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with acne scarring will also notice a marked improvement. The laser can be used to rejuvenate many areas on the body, including the face, hands, neck and chest.

How Effective is Laser Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process. Usually, patients need 4 to 6 treatments spaced at 3 to 5 weeks apart. Many patients choose to return for touch-up treatments after the initial treatment session. Patients will experience progressive improvement over several months where the result is smoother, healthier skin with fewer fine lines, pigmentation and other imperfections.

What is the Procedure like?
Laser skin rejuvenation does not affect the outer layers of skin, so there is no downtime. During the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleansed, and laser-protective goggles are placed over the eyes. A topical anaesthesia can be used if the patient requests for it. An invisible laser beam is directed at the face, heating up the deeper layers of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The Medlite laser offers a very comfortable treatment and the sensation can be described as a “tingling” feeling. One session will take approximately 45 minutes.

After a laser session, there is rarely any visible effect beyond mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. Makeup can be applied and patients can immediately resume their regular daily activities. You may be asked to avoid the sun and some skin products for a period of time after the treatment. It is important to follow our doctor’s instructions exactly.
