What Creates This Damage?

Every day your skin, especially your exposed skin, is bombarded by UVA from the sun and environmental pollutants and toxins. These exposures damage the skin by disrupting DNA, the genetic material in your cells. Fortunately, the skin is able to repair much of this damage. Laser treatments can restore the sun damage by about 90% and it is the 10% that isn’t repaired that causes our skin to age.

How Can Damaged Skin Be Improved?

Different lasers are used for different conditions. The colour of a laser beam determines what it treats in the skin.

The Nd YAG Q-switched laser puts out infrared light and green light. The energy of the laser is deep penetrating and absorbed by the pigment, blood and damaged cells in the skin (the 10% that doesn’t repair naturally) and causes a mild inflammation. As the skin recovers from this mild injury the overall healing process is closer to 100%.

This results in fading of pigmentation, clarification of the skin and also is associated with new collagen production. This collagen then matures and contracts, tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles. After a treatment, there is a mild pinkness that usually settles within a day.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

The full response to the laser takes about a month, so this is the recommended minimum time between treatments. Improvement is equivalent to turning the clock back about a year (a fairly mild improvement). However, some people can see an obvious improvement even after one treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments will vary from person to person depending on what is being treated and the degree of damage needing to be repaired.
