Reveal Your Full Potential

What is Laser Resurfacing?

At CLNQ in Cheshire & Manchester laser resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses targeted laser wavelengths to improve and eliminate various skin issues, such as wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, sun damage, age spots, and uneven skin tone or texture. A laser technician uses the laser to precisely remove layers of skin, prompting the growth of new, healthier skin cells.

There are two main types of laser resurfacing:

Ablative Laser Resurfacing

This method removes thin layers of skin using high-energy light. It vaporizes the damaged skin cells, stimulating collagen production and revealing smoother, rejuvenated skin. It's effective but may require more downtime for recovery.

Non-Ablative Laser Resurfacing

This technique heats the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the surface. It promotes collagen growth and improves skin texture and tone. It typically involves less downtime compared to ablative resurfacing.

Each of our laser platforms features settings that can be adjusted around your needs. Your CLNQ provider will spend time learning about your specific goals, assessing your skin type, and helping you select the approach that best suits your preferences regarding results and downtime. Individuals tend to be very satisfied with the visible rejuvenation offered by this treatment.

Technology Tailored to You

Your Laser Resurfacing Procedure

The specific type of laser we will recommend for your procedure will depend on your skin concerns and desired outcome. Our laser platforms include the CO2 and YAG lasers.

While receiving laser resurfacing Manchester & Cheshire patients will recline comfortably as their provider uses a handheld device that emits precise beams of light into their skin. The treatment area may feel hot, and some people describe the pulses of the laser as feeling similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This sensation can be reduced with cooling techniques or the application of a topical anesthetic before treatment. Overall, most people find the treatment very tolerable.

A New Era of Radiance

Laser Resurfacing Results

While some immediate changes might be visible, significant changes may take time to become visible and will improve with multiple sessions. As post-procedure sensitivity diminishes, many people see subtle improvements in clarity and tone right away. However, it may take weeks or months to enjoy optimal results, as the laser initiates a process of collagen production and cellular turnover. Laser resurfacing can significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation by stimulating collagen production, breaking down areas of excess pigment, and smoothing out the skin’s texture.

Healing in Action

Laser Resurfacing Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery and aftercare following laser resurfacing in Manchester & Cheshire depends on the type of laser used and the depth of your treatment. Your CLNQ specialist will let you know what to expect regarding your individual recovery timeline and provide personalized aftercare instructions. The aggressiveness of your treatment can be adjusted to fit your schedule, ensuring you are able to give your skin the gentle care and extra sun protection it will need post-treatment.

Additional Reading

Immediately after a laser resurfacing session, the treated area may feel sensitive, resembling a mild sunburn, with redness and swelling. We will advise you to use gentle products and avoid activities that could irritate the skin, such as strenuous exercise or excessive heat exposure. The recovery timeline can vary based on your skin type and the intensity of the treatment. Light to moderate treatments typically allow an immediate return to most activities, while more aggressive treatments could necessitate a few days of social downtime.

Laser Resurfacing Frequently Asked Questions

Is Laser Resurfacing painful?

During the laser resurfacing procedure, patients might experience a sensation of heat or the feeling of snapping against the skin. Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment and your individual preferences, your provider may use topical anesthetic or cooling techniques to minimize discomfort.

How many sessions are needed for Laser Resurfacing, and when will I see results?

The number of sessions required depends on the individual's skin concerns and the type of laser treatment. While some immediate improvements might be visible, significant results usually develop over several weeks to months, requiring multiple sessions for optimal outcomes.

What is the downtime after Laser Resurfacing, and what can I expect during recovery?

Downtime varies depending on the type and intensity of the laser treatment. Ablative resurfacing might involve several days to weeks of recovery with redness, swelling, and peeling. Non-ablative treatments often have minimal downtime, with milder side effects lasting a few days.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with Laser Resurfacing?

While laser resurfacing is generally safe, potential side effects include redness, swelling, temporary changes in skin pigmentation, scarring (rare), and infection (rare). Working with a qualified specialist and carefully following post-treatment care instructions helps minimize these risks.

Can Laser Resurfacing be combined with other treatments?

Yes, laser resurfacing can be combined with other cosmetic treatments like injectables (e.g., dermal fillers or Botox) or skincare regimens to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation, addressing various skin concerns simultaneously. Your CLNQ aesthetic specialist can help you customize a treatment plan to your particular needs.

Is Laser resurfacing safe?

When done by trained professionals, a laser resurfacing treatment is safe to add to your skincare routine. Like any procedure, you typically experience side effects such as skin peeling or a mild burning sensation. On the other hand, this treatment’s recovery time is very minimal and ensures to:

  • Avoid hot tubs, saunas and exercise for 72 hours
  • Avoid the sun or wear a minimum factor of SPF 30
  • Keep the area well moisturized
  • Stay Hydrated
