What can help?

Skin resurfacing with laser is the most effective treatment for smoothing the skin of fine lines and imperfections. When the extent of skin damage is severe, the most effective way to do this is using full-field resurfacing. This involves removing the entire surface of the skin, allowing it to heal in a more youthful way. This is a significant procedure that requires around 10 days of downtime and can leave some pinkness to the skin for a number of months. However, it results in a dramatic improvement in skin quality and it is a one-off, permanent solution.

When the fine lines are less extensive, or when the patient doesn’t want to commit to the downtime of a major procedure, a fractional skin resurfacing using the Halo laser is a good alternative. This is less invasive with most patients resuming normal activities within 5 days and continued gradual improvement for up to three months after the treatment.

COMMON
QUESTIONS

We use cold air to cool the skin and topical numbing cream to provide additional comfort during fractional Halo laser treatments. When full field resurfacing is being performed, however, this requires us to also use some injectable local anaesthetic – similar to the dentist.

Our bespoke laser treatments are designed to “wound and heal” the skin, therefore stimulating new collagen and refining the complexion. The objective is to allow the skin to return to a smoother, more rested appearance.

Following Halo laser treatment, the skin will be red and feel sunburnt for a few days, before turning dry and flaky. Most patients can expect to get back to social activities within 5 days of having the treatment. When undergoing full field skin resurfacing, you can expect around 10 days of downtime – although it can take a number of months before the pinkness settles completely.

You will generally notice an improvement in your skin as soon as your initial healing period is complete. However, it takes two to three of months for full healing which is when you will typically see the final results.
