Laser treatments

Laser skin resurfacing is the ideal solution for skin with textural issues, fine lines, scarring or pigmentation. Short pulses of light promote skin cell turnover, collagen production and texture correction, revealing glowing, youthful skin. At Ascension, we offer ablative and non-ablative laser options. Ablative lasers remove the outer layers of skin while also stimulating the deeper layers. Only one or two sessions are needed for incredible results. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive, working on the deeper layers of skin. Multiple non-ablative treatments will be needed to maintain your new flawless complexion.

Benefits of
laser treatments

Improve skin tone and texture

Skin problems such as pigmentation, acne scars, sun damage and fine lines can negatively impact our confidence. Although these are natural issues to have, it’s normal to want to get your glowing, youthful skin back. There are a number of ways to combat these concerns, but one of the most effective ways is through laser skin resurfacing. Light pulses will penetrate the skin, fine-tuning your complexion and bringing back the perfect skin you know and love.

Safe and effective

In Queensland, some laser treatments can only be performed by a doctor with specific training and laser licensing. At Ascension, we’re capable of performing these treatments safely and effectively. Laser is one of the most powerful skin resurfacing techniques available thanks to its precision, safety and success rates. With a number of different treatment options available, we can tailor a laser treatment plan to suit your skin.

Laser treatment FAQs

How long do the results last?

Laser resurfacing is a permanent solution to improving skin quality and texture. It works by removing the upper layers of the skin to make way for healthy new skin. It also causes increased collagen production in the skin to decrease wrinkles and give a more youthful appearance to the skin.

How many treatments are needed?

Generally only one treatment is required. However, patients with deep acne scars or wrinkles may opt to have a second treatment to improve results further.

How long before a big event should I have laser?

Schedule your treatment three weeks prior to any events or functions. This is the best timeframe to make sure the only evidence of your laser treatment is your fantastic looking skin.

What is the procedure like?

Patients will be welcomed to the clinic and have a topical numbing gel applied to the treatment area. They will be provided with oral pain medication to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible. After the treatment a post-procedure balm will be applied and the patient will be picked up from our clinic by a friend or family member. The whole experience in-clinic will be around 2 hours, but the procedure itself is only 30 minutes.

Possible side effects

As with any medical procedure, there are possible risks to consider. All patients will have some bleeding and swelling immediately after the procedure in the area treated. The skin will be red and flaky for the next week as the skin heals and new collagen is laid down. There can be some discomfort and ‘tight’ feeling to the skin during this time. Very rarely an infection can occur that requires antibiotics. There is a risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in the area treated – this risk is higher in darker skin individuals.

Recovery

Skin Rejuvenation Lasers
Minimal to moderate downtime. This will range from mild redness to darkened mottled pigment. This usually subsides within 1 – 3 days. Brown spots or pigmentation will flake off and fade over one to three weeks. Diffuse redness and small veins will diminish over this time also.

Pearl Fusion Laser
Following laser resurfacing there will be approximately 7 days of social down time. With social down time you can continue your usual activities, but you may not wish to attend work or social activities as your face will be red and flaky. It is generally advised that patients rest at home for at least the first few days. After 7 – 10 days the face will have a beautiful new skin layer with improved complexion, however there may be some mild redness for the first month after treatment.

Aftercare

Skin Rejuvenation Lasers
Active products are advised to be discontinued for 3-5 days post treatment. Universe skin Balm is advised to be applied at this time. This will aid in protecting the skin and the quality of collagen produced. The most important aspect of aftercare is to use daily sunscreen. This is particularly important for the first month, but ideally should be continued long term to prevent developing further sun damage.

Pearl Fusion Laser
Patients are required to perform regular vinegar soaks for the first 5 days. Universkin Balm needs to be vigorously applied for the first 2 weeks. The skin is not to be exposed to sun for at least 7 days, following this sunscreen is the most important aspect of aftercare and is to be used daily. This is particularly important for the first month, but ideally should be continued long term to prevent developing further sun damage.
