Skin Rejuvenation & Collagen Stimulation

The Cynosure Laser is able to perform skin rejuvenation. This treatment can be done on any part of the body, typically the face, hands and decolletage. The laser gently heats the surface layer of skin stimulating the production of collagen. By heating this layer of skin the body thinks that there has been some damage to the skin and begins to repair the cells, your body is doing the work in repairing and making new cells. This is a pain-free procedure which involves a gentle heat but, leaves little to no redness or tenderness. Our clients are alwaysvthrilled with the results of this treatment.

Bodyside Laser Clinic recommends 4 – 8 treatments about 3 weeks apart. An annual or bi-annual “touch up” is recommended to keep up the rejuvenation of the skin. There are subtle changes that do occur over time as the body heals and repairs and rejuvenates the “damaged” cells. Our clients are getting excellent results and the best part of this treatment is there is that there is no numbing or social downtime required afterwards
 

Post – Treatment and Care

  1. Do not apply any moisturizer or aloe vera gel – the skin must cool down in its own time (the “warm” feeling is good);
  2. After about 3 hours post-treatment, splash your face with some cool water and pat dry with some kitchen paper towel; 
  3. You may apply some coconut oil or moisturizer at bedtime;
  4. Your skin may feel tight for about 4-5 hours after the treatment – this is normal and a good thing;
  5. The following day you can go back to your normal skin regime unless you also had spider veins lasered on the face, in this case you need to exercise more care and no extreme exercise is to be done for 3 days post treatment (see notes on spider vein treatment);
  6. If a spider vein treatment was carried out at the same time use organic coconut oil or PolysporIn for 3 – 5 days post – treatment until the redness and “crusting” has gone;
  7. We recommend adding a Hyaluronic Acid serum and Vitamin C oil to your skin care routine;
  8. If a pigmentation treatment was carried out at the same time the “freckles” may be darker for 3 – 7 days before fading;
  9. We recommend using sunscreen daily.

Rejuvenation continues for a long time after your treatment, you will see subtle changes constantly. In conjunction with your laser treatment, “YouTube” – “facial exercises and massages” to get optimum results. Remember to keep hydrated!
