At Skin NV, we pride ourselves on staying on top of the latest and greatest skin rejuvenation and restoration treatments, one of which is Clear + Brilliant Laser Exfoliation – a resurfacing laser treatment that effectively exfoliates your skin. Not only does this innovative treatment improve the overall appearance of your skin tone and texture, but it will also help reduce fine lines.
If the thought of laser exfoliation seems daunting, we understand. That is why we are here to explain Clear + Brilliant Laser Exfoliation treatments, how they work and the many benefits they provide.
What are the benefits of a Clear + Brilliant Laser Exfoliation treatment?
If you’re looking for an all-in-one treatment that will target the signs of aging, improve the appearance of your pores, skin tone, and texture, then Clear + Brilliant Laser Exfoliation is for you! The gentle (we repeat “gentle”) laser focuses on the dermal layers of your skin to achieve a healthy, glowing complexion. Even better, laser exfoliation treatments will prevent and reduce sun damage and pigment buildup. Clear + Brilliant treatment is very quick and has minimal downtime!
What can I expect during a laser exfoliation treatment session?
During a laser exfoliation treatment, a trained Skin NV skin care technician will use a rolling hand-piece to focus the laser energy on your skin. This energy removes dead skin cells throughout the different layers of skin and heals from the inside out.
When the rolling hand-piece touches your skin, you will feel a little heat and a slight prickling sensation, but don’t worry. It won’t hurt!
Does the skin need to be prepped before treatment?
Even though laser exfoliation is noninvasive and gentle, we recommend numbing the treatment area with a topical numbing cream 15 to 20 minutes before the session begins. This will help to relieve any discomfort you may experience throughout treatment.
What can I expect after a laser exfoliation treatment?
It is important to note that results vary between individuals, however many patients will experience the following after a laser exfoliation treatment:
Within 24 Hours: Your skin may feel hot and have a reddish appearance for about two hours immediately following treatment. You may also experience inflammation the following day.
Within two to three days: Your skin will start to feel tight and dry in the days following treatment. To remedy this, we recommend applying moisturizer (preferable SPF 50) repeatedly throughout the day.
Within five to ten days: During this phase of post-treatment, your skin is healing from the inside out and will be slightly dry and flaky. This is completely normal! In about eight to ten days, the dry skin will shed, leaving clear and brilliant skin.
What should I do after treatment?
Because your skin is more sensitive after treatment, you must take extra good care of your skin. Do not rub, scrub, or exfoliate your skin for at least seven days after treatment. Use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer and avoid occlusive products such as facial oil and face balms. We recommend that you avoid wearing makeup, but if you must, mineral makeup is the way to go.
How many treatments should I get and how long with the results last?
For optimal results, we suggest getting at least three treatments within four to six weeks in between. Within 7 to 10 days after treatment, you will see a difference in the appearance of your skin, and even more enhanced results after 12 weeks.
