GentleLase Laser skin rejuvenation

Using laser energy that is attracted to melanin the alexandrite 755nm long pulsed alexandrite laser can be used to treat unwanted brown, sun or age spots. This treatment can be performed by itself or as part of a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation program.

What are the indications for treatment?
Sun, age or brown spots on the skins which are flat in nature.

What does the treatment feel like and is downtime required?
The treatment is quiet comfortable and requires no anesthesia. After treatment you will notice the unwanted brown spots will be darker in colour and will flake off over the next week. They may become lighter in colour with each treatment or be remover by a single treatment. Make up can be worn after the procedure.
We don’t consider this a downtime procedure but don’t advise having this done if you have a ‘special occasion’ coming up in the next week or two.

Any preparation before treatment?
Treatment can not be performed on tanned skin and tanning is prohibited after treatment. The use of a high grade sun block is suggested.

What are the treatment alternatives?
Another device used to treat sun spots in our salon is the Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL, Photo facial)
