Scars can be treated elegantly with 2 main modalities, RF Microneedles and C02 lasers.
The Fractional CO2 Laser technology is a skin resurfacing treatment that tightens open pores, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, controls sebum production and improves the appearance of acne scars. It involves a laser beam that resurfaces the skin, destroying tissue a millimeter deep in microscopic spots. The “injury” triggers the self-healing mechanism of the skin, stimulating collagen and smoothing wrinkles.
It is effective for skin rejuvenation as it treats various skin problems such as skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, blotches and pigmentation, to unveil beautiful skin safely with minimal discomfort and micro-downtime.
A better option is the Dual Yellow Laser. This targets both red and brown spots.
The non-ablative Brightening Laser uses an exclusive and versatile modified aesthetic device that gently corrects a range of skin problems. This unique Brightening Laser emits two shades of light: Yellow and Green, both of which have different functions. The combination of the two colours can penetrate more deeply and can be used together or separately, to help achieve a complexion that looks clearer, brighter, firmer and younger. In addition, the laser promotes re-growth of dull skin and reduces pigmentation and freckles for complete skin rejuvenation. This laser can also fade dark eye circles for a further brightened complexion.
It is effective in stimulating collagen production, the essential protein for giving your skin elasticity, that produces fast results in improving vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, melasma and acne, all in a painless treatment with no downtime.
Why do some people get breakouts after a chemical peel or laser?
There are 3 main reasons.
- Skin is too dry. Hence not suitable for treatment.
- Skin is unstable, and having active breakouts. This can be due to a multitude of reasons. So any treatment during this period acts to purge pimples.
- Skin is reacting to the skincare that was used after the treatment. Remember, it takes time to get used to a new product.
