Skin Resurfacing TreatmentsThere is a great demand in our current times to reverse the effects of ageing, and laser resurfacing treatments are proving more and more popular with patients. Prevention medicine is growing to reduce the risk factors of skin health such as sun exposure, poor diet, genetics, free radicals and so on. Laser therapy is one of the most advanced anti ageing treatments, and is frequently used for skin rejuvenation. Non ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing treatments are developing very rapidly to become the gold standard for laser therapy for various indications including anti ageing treatments for photoageing.
How does it work?Fractional laser treatments use a relatively new technology that successfully corrects many dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions. With these anti ageing treatments, the laser beam is broken up or fractionated into many small micro beams that are separated so that, when they strike the skin surface, small areas of the skin between the beams are not hit by the laser and are thus left intact. These small areas of untreated skin promote much more rapid re‐epithelialisation, recovery and healing, with less risk of complications. The small areas treated by the fractional micro beams, called micro treatment zones, cause sufficient laser injury deep in the dermis to promote new collagen production and resultant facial skin rejuvenation.
Does it hurt?No - you will feel warmth when the laser is worked over the skin but no pain will be felt. Your skin may remain pink for up to 24 hours and we recommend you follow a thorough skincare routine following your treatment.
What do I need to do to prepare my skin?During consultation for skin resurfacing treatments you will be advised on a thorough skincare routine which we advice that you follow to achieve maximum results. What will my skin look like after? Everyone's skins react differently to anti ageing treatments but we do expect you to have pink/red skin directly after the treatment which will fade over the next 24/48 hours. Skin flaking can follow roughly 4/7 days after skin resurfacing treatments take place.
How many treatments will I need?Again, this varies from person to person but we recommend a minimum of 3 with 4 week in-between each treatment.

BEFORE & AFTER TREATMENT*
WHAT PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY...*
“I came into the clinic looking for treatment of some mild acne scarring on my cheeks and large open pores. I was recommended the 1540 laser resurfacing treatment and it was the best treatment I have ever had! I couldn't believe how smooth my skin became and the discomfort during the treatment was minimal! Every time I see my friends and family they can't believe how amazing my skin looks I don't even need to wear foundation anymore!”

“I have tried numerous skincare brands to help with my skin and layering it with make-up to cover up my skin issues. I came in for a consultation with The ME Clinic to way up my options on what I could have done to change the appearance of my skin. With a clear explanation of the options available to me I booked in a skin resurfacing treatment. My skin is looking great and I feel extremely happy about my results. Looking forward to seeing the team again for my 4 week visit!”
