Laser treatment can enhance the layers of the skin to promote the healthy, radiant and youthful skin underneath. Most commonly, as we get older the skin on our décolletage and our face becomes freckled or is inflicted with the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation and discolouration. This occurs due to a lack of protection from the sun as well as general wear and tear which will occur as you age. In order to lessen the visibility of these signs of aging Dr Anh can utilise laser therapy which is known to purify and treat the skin, by encouraging the body’s natural healing process. This procedure will be performed at her Perth cosmetic surgery where she offers a range of laser, surgical and Medispa treatments for your appearance and wellbeing.
Benefits of CO2 Laser Treatment
CO2 laser technology used with dot therapy has the ability to improve acne scarring, and reduce sun damage, fine lines and pigmentation of the skin. This treatment also creates long-lasting results for patients who care for their skin on a daily basis.
The CO2 laser utilises carbon dioxide as an ablative therapy to treat the deeper layers of the skin. It is applied directly to the skin in a number of separated dots which is why it is a fractional laser treatment. This promotes the healthy skin to heal the areas affected by dot therapy and inspired regeneration, by targeting the deep layers in the dermis. This is where the CO2 laser stimulates collagen production through heating the tissue. This induces remodelling of the dermis for better skin quality and appearance. This is an effective treatment when treating:
- Small scars
- Pigmentation (Discolouration)
Laser Technology with Dr Anh
Dr Anh performs pro-fractional laser resurfacing with a Sciton Erbium laser as well as a Fraxel Laser. She has undergone the Fraxel Laser treatment herself and highly recommends laser resurfacing to rejuvenate the face for glowing, radiant skin. Dr Anh understands that not everybody’s face or skin is the same which is why she utilises the Erbium laser with a customisable depth.
FAQs - Laser Resurfacing Perth
You will feel some discomfort during the CO2 laser resurfacing procedure, as you will with any laser procedure. Dr Anh and her team will strive to make you feel as comfortable as possible during any procedure that you receive at her Perth cosmetic clinic. Dr Anh will discuss your pain reduction options during your initial consultation.
CO2 laser technology delivers short pulses of light into the deep layers of the skin. These light beams are continuous and are used to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat and minimal damage.
It can take patients up to two weeks to completely heal after receiving CO2 laser resurfacing. During the healing period your skin will become red and may look blistery or flakey. This is normal and this is part of the body’s healing process.
