Laser skin resurfacing treatment is a ground-breaking therapy that is capable of targeting a whole range of skin concerns. Want to find out more? Of course you do!

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

If you’re wondering, ‘how does laser skin resurfacing work?’, let us tell you... Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that uses a micro-optics lens and makes pixel-sized ablation dots on the area of skin that is being treated. It penetrates deep down into the skin to target collagen production and get the skin working from within, while the older surface layers of the skin are removed.

What’s great about laser skin resurfacing is that it can be tailored to your own specific skin concern. This is no one-size-fits-all treatment, because with laser skin resurfacing, we’re able to adjust the level of penetration so that it reaches the level that’s needed for your skin condition. The procedure leads to boosted collagen production that in turn delivers on tighter, firmer, brighter, healthier-looking skin. Which is a win-win in our books!

Why should I consider getting Skin Laser Resurfacing?

At Este, we’ve seen wonderful achievements with our laser skin resurfacing results. Clients have come to see us because they’ve been fed up with results gained from at-home remedies, over-the-counter products, and other therapies that simply haven’t delivered. As you’ll be able to see from our laser skin resurfacing before and after photos, the results with this treatment speak for themselves.

We are able to offer -

  • Laser skin resurfacing for scars
  • Laser skin resurfacing for hyperpigmentation
  • Laser skin resurfacing for rosacea
  • ...And many more skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, rough skin

Are results with Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing permanent?

Laser skin resurfacing delivers long-lasting results. That’s because it’s a treatment that works to get your skin performing better on its own. So, unlike treatments that mask skin conditions and help them improve temporarily (such as fillers), laser skin resurfacing works to address issues within your skin and get your skin working harder to address them. To keep your skin looking its best, you may need top-up treatments.

You may not see results immediately, but once your skin has started to respond to the treatment by producing more collagen, you will notice a definite improvement. How fast you see results can also depend on the issue being treated. For instance, laser skin resurfacing for stretch marks may take longer to show results as opposed to laser resurfacing for skin tightening. We will discuss treatment times and how quickly you should see results at your consultation.

Which is best – Laser Skin Resurfacing vs Microneedling

Both laser skin resurfacing and microneedling can help with multiple skin concerns, but one may be better for you than the other. Microneedling is a great way to quickly target skin issues such as wrinkles and stretch marks, while laser skin resurfacing can help with skin tightening and acne scarring. When you book in for your consultation at Este, we will be able to talk you through the treatment options that will work best for you.

Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Safe?

Yes. When carried out by trained professionals, like our team at Este, a laser skin resurfacing treatment is a safe procedure to enjoy as part of your skincare routine. However, you may experience side effects such as skin peeling, and a feeling of sunburn post treatment. Generally, the laser skin resurfacing recovery time is minimal and you can carry on with your regular activities. Just make sure to -

  • Avoid hot tubs, saunas and exercise for 72 hours post-treatment
  • Stay out of the sun and wear at least SPF 30 when out and about
  • Keep the area that’s been treated well moisturised
  • Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated

The Last Word

As you’ll now appreciate, the benefits of laser skin resurfacing are many. Whether you want to clear up acne scarring, help rejuvenate and firm up your skin, or you want to target a condition such as rosacea, laser skin resurfacing can help.
