What’s a Laser Facial

Do you feel that you look older than you really are? Does your facial skin appear tired and/or blemished? Would you like to turn back the clock on skin aging and embrace a refreshed, rejuvenated and younger appearance? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for a laser facial.
 

What is a laser facial?

 

A laser facial, which is also sometimes known as laser resurfacing, is a form of cosmetic treatment that is designed to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as acne scars and pigmentation.  

 

Laser facials are carried out using the latest laser technology which has been proven to be effective at reducing acne, wrinkles, and other skin issues and improve the skin texture, leaving it looking and feeling smoother, tighter and younger in appearance. There are multiple different lasers that can be used to perform this procedure, but one which is regularly considered to be superior to all others is the Quanta Evo Laser.

 

The Quanta Evo laser uses multiple wavelengths to target the skin, causing the regeneration of new cells by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These are the building blocks of healthy, elastic and supple, unlined skin. The new skin cells are the same as the original color of your skin, meaning that there is no discoloration caused by the laser – only fresh, smoother and tighter skin that enables you to look younger than before.
 

Are laser facials painless?

 

A regular facial isn’t painful, and neither is a laser facial that uses a non-ablative laser such as the Quanta Evo laser. This is because the surface of the skin isn’t damaged, but instead, the laser has a therapeutic effect. Some patients feel some tingling or warmth while their procedure is being performed, but the inbuilt cooling system helps to keep you comfortable for the duration of the procedure. The Quanta Evo laser can also be used on all skin types and tones without causing any permanent damage, so you don’t have to worry about its effects and being left with pigmentation.

 

It is normal for your skin to feel a little tender after a laser facial, with many people likening the experience to mild sunburn. This usually fades within 24 hours and you will be able to take anti-inflammatory pain medications should you feel it necessary. It is important to follow the instructions of your laser facial team to ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome from your treatment.
