WHAT IS A NON-ABLATIVE LASER?
A non-ablative laser is a photo-rejuvenating ND:YAG laser skin treatment which can successfully treat –
- Rosacea, which is characterized by small white heads, flushing of the skin and diffused redness around the eyes, nose, cheeks and forehead
- Vascular lesions commonly found on women’s neck caused by photosensitizing products such as perfume
- For mild to moderate reduction in wrinkles and pore size
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The laser emits a gentle light which is repeatedly passed over the treatment area causing a warming in the dermal skin tissues, thus stimulating the production of collagen and diffusing any redness (rosacea) in the skin.
The laser treats the disorders effectively and is a fantastic treatment for premature ageing which is a common in the Middle East due to the climate. Laser can also be effectively combined with other skin treatments and preparations such as facials, Botox®, fillers, vitamin-C and retinoids.
How many sessions are required?
It depends on the severity of the problem; most patients will need a minimum of four sessions.
How much will it cost?
The prices vary depending on the treatment area, and the severity of the problem.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure should not be painful and topical anesthesia cream is not normally required. Slight warming of the skin will be felt, and the procedure has been found to be quite comfortable.
Will I need to take time off from work?
Absolutely not, it is a completely non-invasive treatment, a slightly red healthy glow will be seen after the session and no specific after care is needed.
