Treatment of spider veins, rosacea & redness, sun damage & pigmentation
What conditions can be treated with a laser system?
Lasers can be used to improve general skin tone and texture, as well as more targeted conditions including scarring (acne scars, surgical scars, caesarean scars, etc.), skin pigmentation (freckles, “spots”), vascular lesions (including roseacea and visible capillaries), as well as fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing.
If you have any questions regarding facial laser treatment, the team at Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine will be happy to discuss your suitability for treatment during your initial assessment.
What kind of laser is used?
At Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we use the gold-standard Cutera Xeo laser to individualise your treatment based on your concerns and treatment goals.
What can I expect during and after my treatment?
Laser skin treatments are generally well tolerated. Some treatments may be enhanced by the use of a local anaesthetic cream. You may feel warm, pink and slightly swollen (similar to a mild sunburn) followed by some dryness and flaky skin for one to five days.
Your laser-practitioner will provide you with appropriate after-care instructions and post-treatment skin products to optimise your outcome and minimise your period of “down-time”. Due to the individual nature of treatments and your body’s own reaction to the laser, the healing time will vary from patient to patient.
What does treatment with facial laser treatment feel like?
Everyone has different experiences, however treatment with laser systems is rapid, discomfort is minimal, and most patients are able to tolerate their treatment with no concerns. The highly trained staff at Evolve Advanced Cosmetic Medicine will help you manage your discomfort as required and can adjust the treatment if you find that you are becoming too uncomfortable.
How many treatments are required?
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?
Can laser treatments be combined with other treatments?
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?
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?
Do I need a test patch?
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?
I am pregnant or breast feeding. Can I still be treated?
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?
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.
