Laser Facial Treatments at Evolve Melbourne Clinic

Laser skin treatments at Evolve ACM use cutting-edge laser technology to address a range of common skin concerns. Often used as a skin rejuvenation process to improve general skin tone and texture, laser treatments can also address more targeted conditions such as scarring (acne scars, surgical scars, caesarean scars, etc.) The treatment is also often used to improve the look of skin pigmentation, such as freckles and age spots, vascular lesions (including rosacea and visible capillaries), as well as fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging.

 

Offering advanced laser skin rejuvenation treatments to Melbourne, Evolve ACM is dedicated to results that exceed the expectations of our patients. Our range of medical grade lasers and highly-trained doctors, nurses and therapists provide the confidence you want on your journey to smoother, polished skin.

What can I expect from laser skin rejuvenation?

Before you start your skin treatment at Evolve ACM, a qualified clinician will discuss an individualised plan based on your concerns and goals. We use the gold-standard Cutera Xeo laser and the advanced Laser Genesis treatments to achieve naturally beautiful results.

Laser skin treatments are a relatively quick and simple treatment with little downtime. We may use a local anaesthetic cream for some treatments, and patients can experience warm, pink and slightly swollen skin that’s like a mild sunburn for one to five days. This may be followed by some dry and flaky skin.

Your laser practitioner will provide you with post-treatment skin products and an aftercare guide to optimise your results and minimise downtime. Due to the individual nature of skin resurfacing treatments, healing time, results and levels of discomfort may vary between patients. The highly-trained therapists at Evolve ACM can help manage your discomfort as required and can adjust the treatment if you become too uncomfortable.

Target imperfections & rejuvenate the skin

If you have any questions regarding laser facial treatments, or you want to discuss your individual skin concerns with the team at Evolve ACM, simply book a complimentary consultation. We would be happy to determine your suitability for the treatment and build a tailored plan to enhance your natural look.

How many treatments are required?

At Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we realise that every patient and their treatment goals are different, and we treat each patient as an individual. Different skins conditions and different skin areas and skin types respond differently to laser treatment.

 

Therefore, the number of treatments required will vary depending on the condition being treated and the location on the body. Some conditions can be treated with a single laser treatment, but some may require three to six laser treatments. Individual cases will vary. The team at Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine will discuss your suitability for treatment, and your expected treatment plan, during your initial assessment.

Can it only be used on the face?

Lasers can be used on most skin areas. Areas which have been exposed to sun damage such as the face, neck, chest, hands and arms may particularly benefit from laser treatment.

Can laser treatments be combined with other treatments?

Laser treatments may be performed alone, or may be combined with Photo-LED Therapy, which may accelerate the healing and rejuvenation process and lead to faster, longer lasting results.

A series of laser treatments, in conjunction with Dermafrac, nmicrodermabrasion nor chemical peels and occurring over a period of weeks or months, may be recommended by your dermal therapist.

Is my skin type suitable for laser treatment?

At Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we recognise that all patients require individually tailored treatment plans, and that that one size does not fit all. Your safety is our highest priority, and unfortunately not everyone’s skin type may be suitable for all types of laser treatments.

 

In particular, darker skin types containing more melanin (the dark pigment in skin) may be more prone to side effects and particularly difficult to treat with certain laser types. Even a recent tan can make your skin more difficult to treat! However, that does not necessarily mean that you cannot have a laser treatment.

 

Your highly trained clinician will discuss the options with you: these may involve having treatment with a lower powered laser, breaking the treatment up into more sessions, using a different laser type altogether, or in some cases using another, non-laser based therapy to achieve your treatment goals.

Is treatment with facial lasers only for women? What about men?

At Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we understand that there is more and more pressure for men to look younger. We know that you want to look your natural best. Our service is discreet and confidential, so why not contact Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, or come in and discuss treatment with facial lasers with our professional staff?

Do I need a test patch?

Every individuals’ skin is unique. Every skin condition can be approached in a number of ways with various laser modalities, and reactions among individuals can vary greatly. Our highly trained dermal clinicians are experts in laser science and the treatment options available; in some instances, your therapist may decide that testing a small patch of skin prior to your treatment is a necessary safety precaution.

 

This can be the case even if you had previously had treatment elsewhere, as the safety and success of your treatment are a priority at Evolve. If our dermal therapists recommend that you have a test patch, the cost of this initial consultation is redeemable from the price of your first treatment.

How much does facial laser cost?

Different skins conditions and different skin areas respond differently to laser treatment. Therefore, the number of treatments required will vary depending on the condition being treated, the size of treatment and the location on the body. Your highly trained clinician will discuss your likely treatment course and cost during your initial assessment.

I am pregnant or breast feeding. Can I still be treated?

At Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, your safety and the safety of your loved ones is our highest priority. Whilst laser treatments have been studied extensively for both their safety and effectiveness, at Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we follow the industry best-practice standards of not treating during pregnancy or during breast feeding.

Your qualified dermal clinician can advise you on treatment alternatives to enable you to continue working towards your aesthetic goals throughout your pregnancy and while you are breast feeding.

I have a medical condition. Can I still have a treatment?

Laser skin treatments are a very safe treatment. However, if you have an existing or poorly controlled medical condition it may be safer to postpone your treatment. Anyone who is hypersensitive to light should not be treated with laser hair removal.

 

This includes some autoimmune disorders (lupus), vitamin B3 deficiency (pellegra), porphyria, vitiligo, a history of keloid scarring or patients on steroid medications, blood thinning medications or gold therapy for arthritis. Our highly trained staff will discuss your suitability for treatment during your free assessment.
