Creams and microdermabrasion are no longer the be all and end all of the skin care – laser skin care is now a trusted way to the beautiful and younger looking skin.

When it comes to choosing a skin care routine that will work for you it’s important to work out your goals. Here are some examples:

  • Look 10 years younger (reduce wrinkles and skin ageing)
  • Reduce freckles and have more even skin tone
  • Have healthier looking skin with less redness
  • Softer skin with smaller pores and less acne

These are only some examples of what you might be aiming for but once you know what you’re after you can look for treatments or products to get your results.

The Stages of Skin Care

  • Prevention
  • Address problems
  • Maintenance

Most people, unfortunately, get past the prevention stage and need to address problems – and realistically you can’t escape every ray of sunshine and every a pimple. This is why a lot of people turn to skin care routine that incorporates reversal of problems which is most effective with lasers instead of creams.

Which laser or skin treatment should I get?

This is the first question people ask and since there are so many different types of lasers it can be difficult to compare them without becoming confused and giving up. This is why the team at Dr Anh in Perth have created this helpful guide to laser treatments (and skin treatments) for the ‘problem stage’ of your skincare routine.

Skin maintenance is extremely important

Skin maintenance is one of the most important things but one of the easiest to disregard. You may have beautiful skin after your initial treatment but if you do nothing to protect your skin afterwards then you may end up where you started.

Depending on what type of skin you have you may need different products but generally the recommendations include:

Every day:

  • Cleanser
  • Exfoliant (1-3 days)
  • Toner
  • Moisturiser
  • Sunscreen

Every few months:

One of these treatments…

  • HydraFacial
  • Clear and Brilliant

Every six months or once a year:

If your time and budget allows then you can also have:

  • Fraxel
  • C02 Resurfacing
  • IPL
  • Nd:YAG

You can also have a spa facial for relaxation and baby-soft skin! Our clinicians can also analyse your skin and recommend the best solution for your skin type (oily, dry, combination and ageing).

Not everyone has time for a skin care routine that is so thorough but a laser treatment regularly or even once a year can make a significant difference to your skin.
