By gently heating the upper dermis below your skin’s surface, the laser is designed to stimulate collagen production. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
Before the laser treatment, you’ll need to remove your make-up or moisturisers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Your practitioner will help you with the pre-treatment requirements.
The treatment results are often subtle. Every patient’s condition and needs varies. For more information about your expected results and the number of treatments you may need, please arrange a free consultation.
Most patients report few, if any, side effects. However, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment.
Over the course of treatments, laser therapy can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by ageing, sun damage or scarring. The treatment is designed to reduce the size of large pores, diminish minor blemishes and provide you with a healthier looking complexion.
You’ll experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about half an inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities after treatment, but you are advised to use sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with treatment, so we offer a private consultation free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic practitioner to discuss the treatment options available and whether laser skin rejuvenation is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the treatment, from the areas that can be treated to aftercare and the results you can expect. Your practitioner will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale and our treatment facilities.
At your consultation, you can book your treatment if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic treatment is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you an information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require customers to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about THG’s cosmetic treatment expertise and inspiring stories from some of our customers. Our clinic teams are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.
