LASER SKIN RESURFACING – SYDNEY
Skin Resurfacing, Freckle Removal and
Facial Redness Treatment
For those affected by rosacea or facial redness, small red pustules and a reddish hue around the cheeks and nose are all too common. When rosacea is linked to genetics, the first line of treatment is to avoid triggers such as smoking, antibiotics, alcohol and spicy food. In other instances, cosmetic treatments need to be added to the mix to see the most noticeable change.
When left untreated, rosacea can get much worse with age or during periods of high temperatures and emotional stress. It’s for this reason that over-exercising and overheating the body should be avoided.
At Infinity Skin Clinic, we use a highly effective laser resurfacing treatment especially targeting facial redness. It is a vascular laser known as Laser Genesis. This laser treatment for facial redness works by carefully heating the upper layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and restore skin texture, as well as dilating capillaries which effectively decreases the skin’s redness. This non-invasive treatment boosts the natural collagen production of skin cells, evens out skin texture and additionally helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
In terms of additional treatments, rosacea can be reduced using specialised laser technology. At Infinity Skin Clinic, we most often use the Laser Genesis system to target and reduce redness, resulting in a clearer, healthier complexion. Laser Genesis works by gently heating the upper layers of the skin in an effort to increase collagen, improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of dilated capillaries. As an added bonus, lines and wrinkles are also reduced.
If pigmentation is also a concern, we offer two different treatment options at Infinity Skin Clinic. The first is a BroadBand Light (BBL) FotoFacial, which addresses both sun damage and signs of rosacea. The second is Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treatments, which are slightly more intense.
The treatments you decide on depend on the results you wish to achieve. During your consultation, we will assist you with a tailored treatment plan that’s suited to your skin type and specific concerns. Booking a consultation is an essential step in the treatment process because it allows us to thoroughly assess your skin.
LASER SKIN RESURFACING – SYDNEY – Q & A:
Laser Genesis sessions are more relaxing than anything else – it feels as if you’re sitting under the sun. You can expect the equivalent of a calming facial during your appointment at Infinity Skin Clinic, so no anaesthetic is required.
Directly after your Laser Genesis session, your skin will have a natural, healthy glow. To see a noticeable reduction in the appearance of rosacea, you will need to wait between three and four weeks. This is because the regenerated cells need time to reach the surface of the skin. For the best results, a series of six to eight treatments is generally recommended.
If you decide to go ahead with BBL FotoFacial treatments, you will see a noticeable difference after two weeks. However, at least three to four sessions are recommended.
For those undergoing Halo™ Hybrid sessions, results are the most apparent following several sessions over the course of five to six months.
Unfortunately, there’s no definitive way to tell how soon you will see results without a consultation.
In the case of Laser Genesis and BBL FotoFacials, no downtime is required. However, since the skin is more sensitive, avoiding sun exposure for the first week and wearing a high SPF sunscreen is essential. Consuming enough water in between treatments can also help enhance your results.
Since Halo™ Hybrid treatments are more intense, several days of downtime are required. This is because the skin looks sunburned and needs time to peel, revealing healthy, fresh skin cells underneath. Swelling, itching and redness are all common following this laser treatment. It’s also important to stay hydrated and to avoid sun exposure until the skin has healed. Thereafter, wearing a high SPF sunscreen daily is a must.
In most instances, treatments such as Laser Genesis can reduce signs of rosacea for up to a year. During this time, patients are encouraged to avoid triggers and use the right products to protect their skin from the sun. Ongoing treatments are required, although, in many cases, fewer treatments are required in the future.
No, laser advanced laser systems are designed to be precise and to only target damaged skin cells. This ensures any healthy skin is left unaffected.
