Photo-facials and skin rejuvenation

With our new, more advanced and powerful Palomar Starlux 500 laser platform, we can provide more effective and comfortable photo-rejuvenation treatment for a number of skin conditions

Laser photo-facial skin rejuvenation

We all want clear skin, but nature has a way of sabotaging us with frustrating imperfections – especially as we get older and sun damage accumulates, leaving a blotchy, mottled or uneven skin tone and appearance that we feel we always have to cover with make up.

With our new, more advanced and powerful Palomar Starlux 500 platform, we can now provide more effective and comfortable photo-rejuvenation treatment for a number of skin conditions, including:

  • sun damage and sun spots
  • wide areas of pigmentation on the face, chest, arms and backs of the hands
  • small, individual pigmented areas (also known as age spots)
  • rosacea, inflammation and redness to the cheeks and face
  • broken or thread veins
  • skin tightening.

We chose this system because it offers the most versatile, effective and comfortable treatment particularly for fine lines and wrinkles on the face and around the eye area, which Botox may not be able to reach. This is a great alternative to Botox in other ways, because the heat from the laser also has a tightening effect on the skin and helps reduce open pores.

Photo-facial laser treatment can be combined with light facial peels to enhance and boost the 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 the 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 the patient gets the maximum result out of the treatment. The hand piece also has a constant cooling tip to aid comfort through out the procedure.

After the procedure 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 the 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.

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 24 - 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.

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 the consultation.
