Perfect before a special event, laser collagen boost requires no down-time and gives your skin a beautiful glow. The heat from the laser beam is used across the skin (usually on the face, neck and décolletage) in a painting like technique and warms up the deeper layers of the skin. The goal is to maintain a temperature of at least 43 degrees for a specific number of pulses. Once the temperature has been achieved and enough pulses have been used, your body will offset the production of fresh collagen whilst destroying old elastin fibres making room for fresh short ones. It is important that we keep elastin fibres as short as possible as this is what causes our skin to remain tight. However over time the fibres attached to our elastin becomes old and as a result stretches and lengthens, this results in the sagging of skin. Designed to slow down your natural ageing process this treatment softens fines lines and wrinkles, kills bacteria in acne prone skins and is also a great treatment for uneven or damaged skin types.
As your body will begin the collagen regeneration process and builds more and more collagen the results appear at their peak 3-6 months post treatment. Any unevenness or indentation in the skin weather it be fine lines, acne scars, open pores or wrinkles will start to vanish as the collagen begins to fill in any gaps in the skin.
This treatment is fantastic as a stand alone treatment or coupled with a skin needling, RF or even a skin peel on the same day. Most laser treatments are much more intense and won’t allow for the skin to handle further treatment on the same day. This is great because it boost the results of any treatment you combine with it and it’s also great for anyone who may be time poor as it allows us to create maximum impact on the skin in a small space of time.
The treatment is quick and easy. A Full Face can be performed in 15 minutes and a Full face + Neck + Décolletage takes around 30 minutes.
How many treatments do I need?
This treatment can be performed as a stand alone treatment or used as a maintenance.
For optimal results we recommend a series of 3-5 treatments at 2 weeks apart. (can stretch out to 4 weeks, however 2 weeks is optimal).
Maintenance should be performed on a monthly basis however it is still highly effective in maintaining continuous collagen production and ongoing results from previous treatments if done every quarter.
No Downtime or pain. This is a comfortable treatment which can be done in your lunch break or even on the same day as a special event. Like all laser treatments clients should avoid direct sun exposure, especially for the first 2 weeks.
