Our Top 6 Laser Facials

If you want your skin to look its best by Summer, you may want to consider some laser skin facials, now, during the Winter. 

You see, most lasers work in two ways. Firstly, they heat the skin and cause contraction of collagen already existing deep in your skin. Secondly, they encourage the production of new collagen to help give a new structure to your skin. These dual effects, in combination, are what give your skin a plumped up, smoother, more toned, younger appearance.    

The one caveat here is that the initial collagen contraction is immediate, while the new collagen production can take several months to reach its full peak.  

That’s why Winter is the best time to consider having your facial if you want to be your best by Summer. 

Here is a list of our top 6 laser facials and Why they work, and Who should consider having them?

1. BroadBand Light(BBL)

This photorejuvenation Erbium-YAG laser targets sun-damaged areas of the skin, brown pigmentation spots, redness, and visible signs of skin aging on the face.  

Why it works:

When BroadBand Light penetrates the skin, it gets absorbed by brown pigmentation and vascular structures in addition to contracting collagen. The result is the break up of brown pigment spots, closure of small broken capillaries that can cause redness, rosacea, and skin tightening. 

Who should consider BBL therapy:

Those who have the first signs of visible aging on their face, such as fine lines and wrinkles from high sun exposure, brown pigmentation, and freckles, small capillaries, generalized redness, or mild laxity. A BBL laser facial is non-invasive with no downtime but may require multiple treatment sessions for maximum results.

2. SkinTyte II

This innovative skin laser facial involves the use of infrared light for rejuvenation. Its effects visibly firm, tighten and lift loose skin on the face and neck, making the skin smoother, more supple and tone.

Why it works:
Targeted infrared energy passes gently into the skin to heat the surface and deeper collagen layers. The heat causes superficial skin tightening and collagen remodeling in the dermis.

Who should consider SkinTyte II light therapy
Those who are concerned about mild skin laxity in addition to the appearance of the first fine lines and wrinkles due to age-related conditions, sudden loss of weight, hormonal changes, and sun damage. There is no downtime after the procedure, so you can go back to work the very next day. Treatments can be repeated several times, which makes SkinTyte II a perfect integration into your long-term anti-aging skincare routine.

3. Thermage

Radiofrequency(RF) therapy is considered one of the most potent non-ablative, non-invasive laser skin facial treatments on the market today. No need for surgical intervention or anesthesia; a Thermage facial restores lost tone and texture without changing soft facial contours.   

Why it works:

RF penetrates down deep into the dermis to heat structural collagen and enhance the production of new collagen. The strength of the treatment can give outstanding results to tighten, improve texture, tone, and thickness even after one session.  

Who should have a Thermage facelift:

A Thermage facelift is suitable for anyone under the age of 60 who has mild-to-moderate skin laxity and is looking for a non-invasive way to lift and tighten the skin. Thermage can also be applied to other parts of the body, such as the tummy and arms. The results are long-lasting, and therefore treatments should only be repeated every 1-2 years. You may experience a little redness for up to 24 hours after the procedure.  

4. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound(HIFU)

This non-invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation utilizes state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to achieve the best results. HIFU lifts, tones, and tightens your skin while reducing pore size, depth of wrinkles, and small amounts of unwanted fatty deposits. Many have likened the results of HIFU to that of a surgical facelift. 

Why it works:

Precisely calibrated and targeted ultrasound energy penetrates the skin down to the deeper dermal layers and beyond to the superficial muscular system causing immediate skin contraction or coagulation, delayed collagen production, and mild fat melting.  

Who should have HIFU:

HIFU is recommended for those with mild-to-moderate degrees of skin sagging on the face. It’s also an excellent solution for those looking to reduce wrinkles, slow down the skin aging process, treat dull, pale skin tone, uneven texture, and improve facial contours. A HIFU facial takes about an hour, and besides a little redness that will disappear after a few hours, you can return to all normal activities immediately. 

5. HALO

Voted best ‘anti-aging treatment’ in 2016 by US magazine, New Beauty Magazine, the HALO hybrid laser delivers a combination of both surface epidermal fractionated ablative laser and deep fractionated non-ablative laser technology.  

Why it works:

By delivering both types of lasers simultaneously to the superficial and deep layers of the skin, HALO can effectively remodel the structure and texture of your skin from the surface down to the dermis – all in one powerful treatment. 

Who should have HALO: 

HALO fractional laser facial system is recommended for those who want to soften the effects of skin aging, such as discoloration, sun damage, age-related fine lines, and wrinkles, or pale, dull skin. HALO is a gentler means to rejuvenate your face and neck without surgery. Treatment is usually not performed in the summer months as you need to avoid direct sunlight. Recovery is about 5-7 days as the epidermis peels off and restores your HALO glow!

6. Fractionated CO2 Laser

Minimally ablative laser treatment that penetrates deeply into the skin to create microchannels or wounds on a fraction of the skin surface (30%-40%). As the skin peels off, the replacement of old skin cells with new ones gives a brighter, smoother, more tone complexion.  

Why it works:

CO2 lasers have always been the gold-standard of medical lasers. Fractionated laser technologies work by creating microchannel wounds in the epidermal layer of the skin down into the dermis. Intact surrounding skin helps to initial skin regrowth while deeply penetrating heat energy serves to thicken skin by enhancing new collagen production.   

Who should have Fractionated CO2 laser treatment

Fractionated CO2 laser is recommended for those who aren’t quite ready for the knife or who’ve already had a facelift and are seeking further improvement of the quality of their skin. The treatment is minimally invasive, and you will experience redness afterward until the skin peels and regrows. The procedure is not recommended as a fresher-upper if you have an important upcoming event.
