Read our key facts about laser resurfacing

The sun, environmental pollutants, and age take a toll on our skin creating wrinkles, pigment spots, and skin dullness. There are a number of treatments that can rejuvenate skin. Laser resurfacing is a fast and effective way of reducing wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as pigment spots, blemishes, and acne scars.

The word laser can conjure up images of powerful light beams that used to shoot down spacecraft. But in reality lasers are very every day and used extensively in technology and in medicine. Essentially they are beams of light of a single wavelength.

When lasers are used in resurfacing the skin it means that they peel away or remove the superficial or outer layer of the skin. The depth of resurfacing will depend on the condition of your skin, the effect you are seeking, and your expectation of downtime. Following the treatment skin regrows with fresh, healthy cells that will give your skin a younger and rejuvenated appearance.

Freedomhealthskin uses the Sciton PROFILE laser. A qualified medical practitioner will assess your suitability for treatment and also advise you about any risks.

Alternatives to laser resurfacing

ProFractional
Whilst laser resurfacing removes the entire layer of skin from the face, ProFractional laser treatment makes multiple punctures through the skin but leaves the skin between the punctures intact for rapid healing. The body naturally repairs itself and replaces the old, damaged skin that was removed with a fresh, healthy layer of skin. Read more.

Photorejuvenation (Broadband Light)
Photorejuvenation using Broadband Light involves delivering pulses of light of specific wavelengths onto the skin. By selecting the correct wavelengths the light is absorbed and destroys pigmented lesions or thread veins in the skin. The light energy also gently heats the upper layers of the skin stimulating new collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore a smoother skin texture. Read more.

Obaji Skin System
The Obagi Nu-Derm System helps to rejuvenate the skin from the inside out, reversing the effects of sun damaged skin. At its core are two prescription only creams. One contains hydroquinone which fades sun spots in a matter of weeks. The second contains tretinoin which stimulates the cells that produce collagen leading to smoother, stronger skin. Read more.

Chemical peels
Chemical peels are used for skin rejuvenation. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes it to exfoliate and peel off leaving new, regenerated skin that is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. We offer a light and medium depth peel to suit your skin needs. Read more.

Dermaroller
The Dermaroller is a hand held device covered with lots of tiny needles. When rolled across the skin these create hundreds of tiny wounds. Your skin responds by producing extra collagen to heal the punctures creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin. Read more.
