Laser / IPL Treatments
A Laser is a high-energy beam of light than can be directed into certain areas of tissues within the skin. These beams of light are emitted in one wavelength or colour at a time, and can vary in terms of their strength and the type of tissue that they can target whereas IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) systems are broadband and cover a larger area.
Skin resurfacing laser as briefly direct an intense burst of laser energy onto the surface of the skin, causing both water and tissue of the skin to turn to vapour. In the case of Skin rejuvenation, every time the laser passes over the skin, some of the outermost layers of the skin are removed in a precise and controlled way and the fibroblasts, which produce collagen, are stimulated. The result is an improvement in the rate of collagen production.
Skin resurfacing can also be achieved mechanically with a dermabrasion machine or with chemical removal during a deep chemical peel. After the treatment, the skin, which may initially appear sensitised, will look much healthier and more youthful. Vascular lesions (thread Veins) may initially appear darker but will fade to leave a clearer appearance. Pigmented lesions can initially appear darker, and within a few days/weeks the pigment will breakdown leaving the skin more even in colour and skin tone.
