Remember when your skin was smooth and soft? Over the years, the elements and toxins in the air have taken their toll on your skin and has made it show the signs of ageing. Get the skin to reflect the way you feel.
Signs of Ageing Skin
Ageing skin shows through lines appearing near the eyes, around the lips, the forehead and across the cheeks. Facial skin begins to loosen and sag.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a medical procedure that will correct the effects of the sun, wind and time.
Physicians around the world use the pinpoint accuracy of advanced CO2 (carbon dioxide) lasers to repair damaged skin.
Laser skin resurfacing reduces wrinkles without having stitches. The laser emits an intense beam of energy that heats and vapourises tissue instantly without affecting surrounding tissue.
Laser skin resurfacing works by removing the outer layers of damaged skin through the laser beam. Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes are smoothed and deep creases and frown lines will be softened and acne scars minimised.
When the outer layer is gone, the new skin is softer and smoother, giving you the youthful appearance you wanted.

What is the recovery period?
There is generally a short recovery time after laser skin resurfacing. The healing occurs in the first couple of weeks when you are encouraged to keep the skin moist. The initial redness fades in a few weeks to a light pink, which can be covered up with make-up. This disappears after 3 months.
After a few weeks you will look well rested and refreshed.
