About ResurFACE

Many people think that wrinkles and saggy skin cannot be improved without resorting to surgery or total laser ablation of the skin. ResurFACE fractional laser technology was introduced to deliver results comparable to the traditional fully ablative resurfacing procedures, but without the associated prolonged downtime.

The Problem

The Problem

As we age the amount of collagen and elastin that we produce in the skin reduces. The body relies on collagen to keep the skin tight and prevent sagging. Collagen also gets depleted due to everyday exposure to UVA light, smoking, stress etc and results in sagging skin, wrinkles (fine and deep) and the ‘jowly’ appearance.

How It Works

The Problem

Minute sections of the skin are targeted with laser light, which penetrates into the tissue causing small columns of thermal damage which in turn stimulates significant collagen production. The surrounding non-affected areas of skin aid the body’s natural recovery process, allowing dramatic results without significant downtime.

The treatment feels like the flick of an elastic band on the skin. You will have a cooling jet of air on the skin because after the treatment the skin feels very hot. You will wear protective goggles throughout the treatment process.

ResurFACE fractional laser treatment provides a versatile range of different fractional resurfacing laser treatments that essentially produce 40 tiny holes per sq cm. Multiple pulses can be done as well as a thermal (heat) element applied for a more aggressive treatment. Because the skin surrounding the holes is left intact the healing process is rapid, hence the reduced downtime compared to traditional resurfacing treatments.

Yes. Stretch marks are caused when the skin rapidly stretches as a result of sudden growth (pregnancy), at puberty, or with weight gain. The stretching causes the body’s middle layer of skin (dermis) to tear, allowing the deeper skin layers to show through, forming stretch marks. The location of stretch marks varies depending on a person’s body type but typically occur on the tummy, breasts, upper arms, bottom, thighs & shoulders.

You will experience a ‘sunburn’ sensation in the hours after your treatment and your skin may be red for 1 to 2 days or more, depending on the strength of the treatment.

Red skin indicates that the skin is healing at a deep level. During this time swelling is likely but usually resolves in 2 to 3 days. As the healing process occurs, your skin may have a bronzed appearance that lasts from 3 to 10 days, depending on the treatment level.

Your skin will naturally exfoliate and may flake as if you had mild sunburn.

Improvement is evident after the first session, but for optimum results 3 to 5 treatment sessions are advised. Treatment is carried out every 2 to 6 weeks, depending upon your schedule and when results are wanted.

The effects improve over time, even weeks and months after a treatment. The skin seems to recognise subsequent treatments more readily and respond more rapidly with collagen production, just like exercising to improve fitness.

£375 for a full face, £325 for the neck. Other areas such as décolletage, knees, tummy dependant on area.

Full face and neck together £650. We recommend that you have face & neck done on separate days initially.

A course of 3-5 is recommended every 2-6 weeks.

Fractional Resurfacing can be done in combination with many other treatments such as Botox & dermal fillers.
