WHAT ARE LASER TREATMENTS ?

As we get older, particularly in our 30’s and 40’s, we often notice pigmentation, age spots, veins and general sun damage occurring on our skin due to over-exposure to sunlight amongst other things.  Key areas affected are often the face, neck, chest and hands/forearms which are constantly exposed.  Laser therapy uses focussed light - the laser delivers light pulses in powerful beams, allowing the practitioner to work with exact precision and penetrate deeply into problem areas only without damaging surrounding tissue.   The wavelength of high energy light creates heat and destroys only the diseased cells.  The Apogee Elite has the capability to offer a wide range of pulse widths to treat a variety of skin and hair types (it is also very effective for permanent hair removal).

ARE LASER TREATMENTS SAFE ?

Our laser procedures are non-invasive and offer dramatic and permanent results after only a few treatments.  This is because we use one of the leading market devices - Cynosure Apogee Elite which is FDA approved.  This laser technology is one of the safest and most effective laser machines available. Additionally, the Apogee Elite contains not one, but two laser systems ensuring that even the most stubborn cases can be treated effectively - even clients with darker skin and coarse hair. Furthermore, the Apogee Elite has a patented cooling device, SmartCool, which minimises side effects by protecting and cooling the skin before, during and after treatment by producing a continuous flow of chilled air.  This protects the tissues and skin from possible thermal damage, reducing discomfort during treatment and promoting quick recovery time.  In short, this is a safe, fast and effective treatment that won’t slow down your busy life!

WHERE CAN LASER TREATMENTS BE USED ?

The following skin conditions can be treated with the Cynosure Apogee Elite+:

           • Spider and thread veins in the face and legs

           • Red pigment i.e. facial redness & sun-damaged skin

           • Age spots, sun spots, freckles, flat areas of pigmented skin

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE ?

Patients describe each pulse to feel like the snapping of a rubber band against the skin and, whilst uncomfortable, is not painful.  The clinic consultant can use a local anaesthetic cream to numb the area but it is generally not necessary. Skin surface cooling is applied through the use of SmartCool to maximise patient comfort.

HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS LAST ?

Following an in-depth consultation, your therapist will advise on the best course of treatments in order to achieve permanent removal of the veins or pigmentation.  It is therefore important that clients complete the recommended course of treatments for best results.  As with all skin problems, there are many measures you can take to prevent the problem recurring such as staying out of the sun however we do advise clients that, if your skin is prone to freckles for example,  the problem may recur.

WHAT AFTER-CARE IS NEEDED ?

Patients may apply an ice-pack after treatment to soothe the treated area although any discomfort usually disappears in 24 hours.  Aloe Vera ia also an excellent choice to soothe the skin.  Clients are advised to avoid scrubbing the area and to avoid the use of abrasive skin cleaners.  

During the course of treatment, it is vital that clients protect the area from sun exposure by using sun screen even in winter and avoiding  exposure of the area to the sun for at least 4 weeks following treatment to reduce the risk of postinflammatory pigmentation.  Perfumed products, baths, saunas etc. should be avoided for 12 hours following treatment.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE THE TREATMENT DONE ?

This depends on the form, size and location of the pigmentation, veins or skin lesion as well as on the skin type.  Therefore an in-depth consultation is required first with your therapist to determine the correct course of treatments.  As a general indication, small red blood vessels can usually be removed in 1-3 sessions and are normally invisible after the first session while several sessions may be required to tackle bigger veins and spider veins.

Laser treatments should be spaced at least 6 weeks apart as your skin needs time to repair the cells - the same area can then be treated again if necessary.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE & ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ?

Slight swelling and/or general reddening of the skin may occur after treatment - this will disappear within 24 hours and make-up may also be used to camouflage it.

Laser treatments are an effective, safe and fast way to treat these conditions with minimal pain and discomfort and very little recovery downtime.
