Laser skin resurfacing can be a very effective solution to ageing skin, brown spots, high colouring and discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as spider veins. There are different lasers available, some are specially designed to work much deeper than others but your clinician will talk you though the best option for you.
Laser technology has advanced significantly over the past few years making them safer and far more effective. Also in recent years the development of lasers has now allowed us to successfully treat Asian and Darker skin types, something older technologies simply couldn’t do. It is important to consult a laser specialist who is up-to-date on the latest developments in this field and only seek out clinics which invest in state of the art technologies before committing to any treatment.
These treatments appeal to time poor people who want a treatment that can be done in their lunch hour. The most popular non-invasive treatments, include microdermabrasion and mild chemical peels which can be very effective when you want to freshen up your skin’s appearance. Be aware that these cannot address more serious age-related rejuvenation concerns.
Medical Microdermabration treatments and certain chemical peels(including stronger deeper peels) are more intensive meaning they are likely to procedure better results improving not just the appearance but also the tone and texture of your skin.
Injectables include muscle-relaxers like Botox and Dysport, as well asdermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm. Both types of injectables are widely used to treat ageing concerns such as wrinkles, deeper frown lines and “marionette” lines which run from the edge of the mouth down to the chin.
For optimum results we recommend a combination of the two treatments. Generally speaking muscle relaxers are used for the top half of the face to smooth frown lines and crow’s feet, while dermal fillers are used in the bottom section to add volume to cheeks, fill nasolabial folds or enhance the lips.
As with most non-invasive treatments, the results are temporary, so you will need to touch up periodically to maintain the look. However, over time most people need less product, less frequently to achieve the results they want. Many people opt for the less is more approach, after all you can always add more the next time should you require it!
