When you last looked at yourself in the mirror did you notice the extra lines and wrinkles around your eyes?

You then caught a glimpse of the sagging skin around your jawline, the dropping eyebrows and the hollowing under your eyes.

On your cheekbones you noticed the pigmentation marks becoming darker and more obvious. You wondered again why you thought sunbathing was a great idea?

The Benefits Laser Skin Treatments

The deep heating effect of Fotona’s Nd-YAG laser stimulates collagen to increase the facial volume and the Er-YAG helps maximise superficial tightening.

STEP 1- Conditioning

The deep heating effect of Fotona’s Nd-YAG laser stimulates collagen to increase the facial volume and the Er-YAG helps maximise superficial tightening.

STEP 2 – Tightening

Using the Nd-YAG in PIANO mode, (the longest and deepest pulse) creates bulk heating to stimulate skin tightening.

STEP 3 – Fractional Resurfacing

Aged and sun-damaged epidermis are ablated by a fractional Er-YAG laser. The precise micro-ablated channels will be replaced with new, tighter and healthy tissue as new skin forms.

STEP 4 – Peeling

The skin is gently ablated with a light Er-YAG ablative beam. This completes the treatment by removing superficial imperfections with a light peel.

 

Commonly Asked Questions

Does TwinLight® Laser hurt?

There is minimal discomfort involved but it is minimised with topical numbing cream and cooling during the procedure.

What can I expect following the treatment?

It is extremely important to look after your skin correctly post treatment, as your skin will be very sensitive initially. It is important to follow your post care instruction sheet to ensure the skin is protected at all times. The main considerations are to avoid direct sun exposure; avoid picking at the skin; apply only prescribed topical home care; to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to ensure that the skin remains clean and protected at all times.

Your skin will feel like it has been sun burnt and there can be a little swelling, this is normal. You can wear make up 24 hours after the treatment if you need to go out. Generally the redness will go after 24 to 48 hours. The skin will feel rather dry and course approx.. 3-5 days after the treatment. The skin is preparing to peel and should be kept moisturized and avoidance of sun exposure is paramount. Once the flaking has finished you will notice an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin.

How many treatments of TwinLight® do I need?

It really depends on what we are treating as to how many treatments you will require. If there is minimal ageing and superficial pigmentation you may require only 1. On the other hand, if there is severe skin laxity and severe sun damage you may require 4 sessions.

The treatment can be more or less invasive depending on how much downtime you are comfortable with. We are able to tailor the treatment to suit your skin and your lifestyle.

How long do I have to wait between treatments?

Treatments can be repeated every 4 weeks until the desired result is achieved.
