Laser Skin Treatment Results

What is Skin Pigmentation

Skin Pigmentation is extremely common and most often caused by the sun. It can also be due to hormonal factors, injury and aging.

Laser skin pigmentation treatments can be effective at the removal of freckles, age spots and liver spots, that normally contain high levels of melanin (pigment).

What are Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions can develop with age or overexposure to the sun. Small capillaries in the skin can become dilated and spread out like thread/spider veins or give the appearance of red spots

Skin Redness is a common issue and can be caused by rosacea, sun damage and aging.

Vascular laser treatments can help to destroy small blood vessels close to the skin through heat treatment. The reduction in blood flow to the area can visibly diminish redness.

How do Laser Skin Treatments Work

The laser is released onto the skin in a safe way via the hand piece. This is done by our trained Health Professionals.
An intense beam of light is directed onto the skin and absorbed and turned into heat which has the required effect on the target cells. After the treatment there may be:

  • Skin discolouration – red or pink
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Hyper or hypo pigmentation

The possible side effects will depend on the treatment regimen required and will be discussed at the initial consultation.

The laser uses a dynamic cooling device where the upper layers of the skin are sprayed with a cooling burst of cryogen within milliseconds before and after each laser pulse. The dynamic cooling helps ensure that the laser skin treatments are as comfortable as possible for our clients.

  2. Advise us if you are using any topical medications or skin care products 3-5 days prior to treatment, as we may need to ask you to cease them prior to treatment.
  3. If you have had a history of perioral or genital herpes simplex virus, we may recommend a prophylactic antiviral therapy. Call us if you have any questions about this.
  4. RECENTLY TANNED SKIN CANNOT BE TREATED! If treated within 2 weeks of active (natural sunlight or tanning booth) tanning, you may develop hypopigmentation (white spots) and this may not clear for 2-3 months or more.

POST TREATMENT 

  1. Immediately after treatment, there should be erythema (redness) and oedema (swelling) at the treatment site, which may last up to 2 hours, or longer. The erythema may last up to 2-3 days. The treated area will feel like a sunburn for a few hours after treatment.
  2. A topical soothing skin care product such as post laser aid or post sunburn cream/gel may be applied following treatment if desired.
  3. Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation (darker pigmentation).
  4. Use sunblock (SPF 30+) at all times throughout the course of treatment.
  5. The treated pigment will appear darker immediately and within the first few days following treatment. The darkened pigment will flake off like dry skin within 7-10 days. Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin.

  7. Call RR Rejuvenate with any questions or concerns.
    PRE-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
