Taking Skin Care to a Higher Level
Healthy skin starts with the basics – a cleanser, treatment products, moisturiser and of course, sunscreen. These products are essential to help the skin look and feel its best, however they can NOT repair past damage or truly reduce wrinkles! They can NOT rejuvenate the skin!
How does Laser Skin Rejuvenation work?
Collagen provides the essential support network for our skin. As we mature collagen breaks down, causing lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure, smoking and other lifestyle activities also damages collagen and can result in pigment problems (brown spots and stains), uneven tone and dry or leathery texture. Lasers use a precise wavelength of light energy to penetrate the skin, much deeper than any lotion or cream can work, stimulating collagen production at its source. As new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are reduced. Studies show Laser treatments help create a refreshed refined appearance, smoother texture, more even skin tone and minimises pore size.
So Which Laser is Best for Me?
Many Lasers used for rejuvenation are non-ablative, meaning they do NOT damage the skin’s surface. The effective and popular non-ablative lasers (Q-Switched Nd:YAG) use PhotoAcoustic energy to vibrate and reorganise the collagen scaffolding, gently and effectively stimulating collagen regeneration. Other Lasers are ablative and use thermal energy (heat) to wound or traumatise the top layer of skin requiring several days of discomfort and downtime! Non-ablative Lasers using PhotoAcoustic energy are quicker and usually require NO downtime.
Is the Procedure Safe?
When used by qualified and experienced Laser therapists, PhotoAcoustic Laser treatments are safe. The energy is very selective, targeting only collagen fibres, hair or pigment and can be used safely on most skin colours including darker and tanned skin.
What will PhotoAcoustic Laser treatment feel like?
Many people describe the feeling as a slight tingling sensation followed by a feeling of tighter, firmer skin. No down time^ you look great when you leave the Clinic.

How many Laser treatments will I need?
PhotoAcoustic Laser skin rejuvenation is a gradual process and for the best results (optimal skin rejuvenation) we recommend 4-6 treatments at 2-4 week intervals. To maintain the great result, a treatment at 1-monthly intervals are also recommended for most clients, as part of their ongoing skincare regime.
May I have Laser therapy together with other treatments?
Yes, many physicians will combine PhotoAcoustic Laser with other anti-aging tools and therapies to customise effective treatment combinations to best meet the needs of individual clients.
