SPECTRA CARBON LASER LASER TREATMENT

AKA - The Hollywood Facial

 

The laser works in 2 ways;


  1. Targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells, breaking it up to be removed naturally
  2. Heats deep into the dermis, causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen

 

SIDE EFFECTS TO THE TREATMENT


The skin is often slightly pink immediately after treatment, but this subsides after a few hours, and make up and sunscreen may be applied immediately following treatment.

In rare cases, some patients may experience itching or swelling for a few days,scab formation, bruises, infection and temporary hypo or hyper-pigmentation.

 

RESULTS


The skin will appear healthier, radiant and clearer after few treatments, often noticeable after first treatment. Results are improved if sun exposure, smoking and stress are kept to a minimum.

The results may last for months to a year or two; however, the longevity of any effects is determined by the skin condition, skin type and lifestyle.


HOW IS THE CARBON LASER TREATMENT DONE?

 

A layer of carbon lotion is first applied to the skin and allowed to dry. This is followed by passing a few layers of laser over the skin. The carbon particles on the skin absorb the laser beam, resulting in microscopic bursts of energy. This causes gentle heat, exfoliation, pore reduction and stimulates collagen growth.

Results?

  1. Pore reduction
  2. Decrease in blemishes
  3. Improvement in skin tone
  4. Skin rejuvenation and radiance

The carbon laser peel is a zero downtime procedure and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.

 

 AFTERCARE


After treatment your skin will be cleansed and a moisturising treatment applied. It is advisable to apply plenty of moisturizer and sun block to soothe the skin and stay away from excessive sun exposure during the recovery period.

Make up can be applied after treatment; aesthetic products (for acne, hyperpigmentations, wrinkles etc.) can be applied the following day. There is no restriction of daily activities after the treatment.
