Alexandra’s results post-treatment as part of her healing process caused her to receive several comments from concerned followers – so much so she had to post on their Instagram to reassure them this was an albeit extreme reaction but a normal part of the recovery process. She rests assured in the advice from her consultant that this was completely normal and not to be alarmed.
Alexandra later updated with further pictures of her face which showed a marked improvement in her skin and a glimpse into the eventual result she would receive.
Laser resurfacing means removing the superficial layers of skin so that healthier, younger-looking skin can form. This is one of our most versatile treatments as it can be used on various parts of the face and body depending on your desired outcome – from a full face to just around the eyes or to improve the appearance of smokers lines.
Laser resurfacing can be used to;
- Tighten the skin to improve wrinkles and acne scarring
- Give a more even skin tone and improve dark areas
- Smooth rough skin
- Reduce the appearance of scars
- Gives the skin a more youthful look and feel
- Plump and hydrate the skin
- Reverse skin sun damage
- Remove Moles
Mr Vivek Sivarajan has over 18 years’ experience; at Elanic we use the CO2RE Laser which is one of the worlds most effective lasers. This state-of-the-art device makes thousands of microscopic holes in the skin, resulting in deep collagen formation and marked skin tightening.
The laser is used in our theatre with local anaesthetic cream and can cause sunburn-type symptoms for the first few days which take two to three weeks to fully heal. Our patients are advised on the best way to care for their skin in these first crucial weeks and educated on a long term skin care regime to improve and prolong their results.
