We are very pleased to inform you that we have installed a new laser device, the fractional Co2 laser, widely considered to be the gold standard in the skin resurfacing technologies. The clinic can now offer you both the non ablative, ‘milder’ treatment as well as the ablative, ‘deeper’ version of skin laser resurfacing.
The new equipment is called the Acuscan 120, made by the reputed Lumenis company and thanks to a sophisticated computer, accurate, stronger yet finely titrable forms of laser skin surfacing. Depending on your life style, work and social commitments, the treatment can be given as a single session with longer recovery periods or split into a number of sessions with multiple but very short downtimes, without affecting the final results. We chose this laser after attending various conferences in the US, after studying the results presented by top surgeons.
We are pleased to give some more information on this technology in the succeeding paragraphs.
The visible signs of aging are caused by changes deep in the layers of the skin. To improve skin tone and remove imperfections, Acuscan 120 Fractional Wrinkle Reduction treats deep into your skin to create new collagen to improve your skin tone. The end result is a dramatic improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone, texture and skin tightening – in one treatment.
AcuScan 120 may be the ideal option if you:
AcuScan 120 is a fractional CO2 laser that targets wrinkles, fine lines, and skin tone and texture with minimal downtime. Fractional treatments treat only a fraction of the skin, leaving bridges of untouched skin that aid in the healing process and reduce healing times enabling you to return to normal activities quicker.
AcuScan 120 Fractional Wrinkle Reduction utilises a very narrow laser micro-beam, about the width of a human hair, to remove columns of tissue deep into the layers of the skin. This initiates the body’s natural wound healing response which heals the surrounding zone of affected skin by creating new elastic collagen. The new collagen foundation works to improve skin tone and pull wrinkles out as well as plumping from within. The result is improvement in the appearance on wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone, texture and laxity – in one treatment, and with minimal downtime.
AcuScan 120 is commonly used on the face, around the lips, for crows feet, the neck, upper chest, hands and arms.
AcuScan 120 is typically performed in a physician’s office. First, your physician will numb your skin with a topical anaesthetic to aid in treatment comfort. During the procedure, you will feel a warm sensation as the laser is applied. Your total treatment time will last approximately 30 minutes, though total time will vary depending on the area to be treated. Immediately following treatment, your skin will be warm, and may be slightly red. Your physician will provide you with a skincare regimen to follow for the days following your treatment and as your skin heals, you will begin to notice an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, tone and texture. You should be able to begin normal activities within a day or two depending on the treatment received. You should expect to continue to see improvement for up to six months following the procedure.
Price: Starts from £800 for a full face . (Expect individual variations in treatment and price as well).
