Laser – the Future in Fresh & Healthy Skin
Light has been around since creation. Light from the sun causes damage to the skin and prematurely ages our skin. Ironically, light treatment can also be used to rejuvenate the skin and reverse the effects of sun-damage.
Laser treatments are relatively quick, with little downtime and fast healing. In fact it is this healing that the laser therapy relies on. In a recent Cosmetic Magazine article Dr Roos was quoted, “Fraxel fractional laser penetrates the upper layers of the skin and causes a degree of thermal damage which triggers the body’s healing response and stimulates the production of new collagen at the treatment site. This results in smoothing, plumping and rejuvenating the skin.”
Laser tattoo removal has reached new heights too. The PicoSure uses the latest acoustic wave technology to shatter ink into small particles which the body absorbs. Not only is this laser safer to use and less painful than previous lasers, the wavelength of the laser makes it more effective in removing difficult ink colours such as blues and greens.
You may think that technology as advanced as this would only be available in the major centres. The good news is that Cosmetic Elegance Clinic has the biggest laser clinic west of Brisbane and offers a host of laser treatments including tattoo removal, Fraxel facial resurfacing, scar treatments, hair removal, vascular treatments, pigmentation and the treatment of sun-damaged skin. Cosmetic practitioner Dr Eddie Roos has been using a variety of different lasers in his clinic for over ten years and commented, “Lasers give us a wide range of skin treatment options with really significant results. Fraxel works particularly well on sun-damaged skin and although treatment outcomes vary from person to person, your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show more even skin tone. The PicoSure laser tattoo removal has also had breathtaking results; you can literally see the tattoo fading before your eyes, virtually making tattoo regret a thing of the past. Also, less treatments are needed to remove tattoos.”
