Are you looking to have a more youthful appearance without having to go under the knife or use injectables?
You may be interested in a laser rejuvenation facial.
What is a laser rejuvenation facial?
You may have also heard this procedure be referred to as laser skin resurfacing.
This is a non-surgical procedure that involves minimal downtime.
Laser rejuvenation facial involves using a laser to remove the outer layers of the skin. This process causes the skin to start new collagen production in order to heal from the laser. This leaves you with skin that is tighter and appears younger.
Should I have a laser rejuvenation facial?
Want to know if you are a good candidate for a laser rejuvenation facial?
It is a suitable procedure for those who have:
- Fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, mouth or forehead
- Shallow acne scars
- Want better results following other facial procedures such as a facelift
Those who have darker skin may not be a suitable candidate. It is not a suitable procedure for those who have acne or are looking to treat stretch marks.
Prior to undergoing the procedure, it is recommended you book an appointment with Skin Clique Laser Clinic to ensure you are a suitable candidate or whether another skin procedure would be better.
What to do to prepare for laser rejuvenation facial
So you’ve decided to get laser rejuvenation facial – how do you go about preparing for the procedure?
Prior to undergoing the procedure, you will have discussions with your skin specialist who will advise if you need to halt any medications. Certain medications that can affect clotting may need to be paused.
It is recommended that you do not smoke two weeks before the procedure. Smoking can impact the results of the procedure and prolong healing.
What to expect during the procedure
The procedure will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes for part of the face while treating the whole face will take around two hours.
What happens after the procedure
Following the procedure, your skin specialist will bandage the treated area. These will be able to be cleaned after 24 hours. You will need to clean the treated area four to five times per day. Your skin specialist will also advise you on what ointments you will need to use. Using this will help your skin to avoid scabbing.
You can expect your skin to be swollen following the procedure. Applying ice to the treated area will help to decrease the swelling.
