Wouldn’t it be amazing if someone could wave a magic wand and fix all our mistakes and imperfections? Remember all those irresistible pimples we couldn’t help popping? Or baking in the sun in as little clothing as possible at every opportunity? Or perhaps, genetics unfairly handed us large pores or excessive acne?
Well…with a wave of her wand and some pixie dust, the ‘laser rejuvenation fairy’ can do her humble part.
What is laser rejuvenation exactly?
The technician performing the treatment directs the laser onto the skin being treated. The laser heats up the lower dermis deep under the skin’s surface, thereby stimulating the collagen to re-grow. Heat is also generated in overly dilated capillaries, which will reduce the appearance of redness.
Laser rejuvenation does not damage the skins outer layer (the epidermis). It rather only works on the deepest layer of the skin. This, in turn, gently erases signs of aging in the skin’s top layer.
There are various lasers used to perform these treatments. We will focus on what we think are two of the best. The laser Genesis and the Limelight.
The Laser Genesis is an ideal treatment for:
You should be able to see results soon after each treatment. There should be no significant skin irritation, bruising or pain.
Laser Limelight is an ideal treatment for:
There should be no pain or discomfort with this treatment. Light brown spots are especially receptive to this type of laser. They are expected to darken immediately following treatment, but they will flake off within a week or two, revealing more beautiful skin.
If you think you may wish to try this time erasing treatment, please consult your skilled estheticians at Sky and Sea Spa and you will be given a free consultation on your ideal skin solution.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy and beautiful summer!
