At the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery, Drs Maurizio & Roberto Viel recommend the latest in laser technology where it uses mixed technology for skin resurfacing.
The next generation of Quanta YouLaser MT, from Italy, is a leap in anti-ageing laser technology; combining state-of-the-art ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers.
Skin Resurfacing Technology
The laser is a mixed technology for skin resurfacing, skin rejuvenation, skin tightening and scar removal; and it emits both fractional CO2 ablative and 1540nm non-ablative laser wavelengths combining to create the best results with less downtime compared with more traditional lasers.
Typical indications would include uneven textured skin, enlarged pores, age spots and pigmentation, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, fresh stretch marks and some scars.
How many treatments are recommended?
Usually patients see improvement after just one treatment, but those with scar conditions may require a further 2 – 3 sessions done at 6 -8 week intervals.
A mild anaesthetic cream will be applied all over the face, but most patients don’t feel much discomfort, and they sense a series of fast zaps. Some patients may have 24 – 48 hours of downtime with some redness and fine red dots. After the first 24 hours, makeup can be applied to cover any marks. However, patients who have had slightly more aggressive treatments may wait a further 2 – 3 days.
Post Treatment care
After the treatment, there will be redness, and a ‘sunburnt’ look, and there may be mild swelling. Generally, patients don’t find much discomfort, and patients should apply a good moisturiser cream. Apply a total sunblock and avoid the sun for the first two weeks, and to avoid vigorous exercise for the first 48 hours.
Improvements can be seen after 1 week with the best results showing after 6 weeks to 3 months following treatment. Some patients see the results are maintained for up to 6 months after the initial treatment.
