Technical Information

Laser resurfacing is a method used to treat a plethora of concerns and conditions. Because there are different intensities that the resurfacing machine is capable of delivering, it can be used for ‘small’ problems like skin rejuvenation, as well as bigger and more dramatic treatments to scars and burns. Using a CO2, fractional laser, our practitioners can deliver concentrated pulses of light to the skin, removing the top layer or layers, which makes wrinkles and lines fade away. During the healing process, new skin emerges, which appears taut and smoother, leading to an overall healthier and refreshed appearance.

Due to the heat energy caused during treatment, the device also stimulates collagen production, to help firm up the skin, but also break down scar tissue and improve movement for those having a higher-setting treatment by vaporising damaged skin cells.

Frequently Asked Questions

For more superficial treatments, patient may have resurfacing treatment 6 months apart, and will on average need 2-3 sessions of treatment. If a higher setting is used, patients usually have just the one session. For scarred skin and burns, the patient may need several sessions, depending on the desired result. If the skin scars are raised or red in colour, other treatments may be advised in combination with the CO2.

As mentioned, the CO2 can be used for many different indications. A suitable candidate will be someone who is looking for fresher, younger-looking skin, or someone who has burns or scars and wishes to reduce their appearance and regain movement. All skin types can be treated with the CO2.

This is a Doctor led treatment and will only be performed by Dr Tapan Patel or one of his hand selected team of doctors, who specialise in both treating patients of colour, and in scar treatment.

The device can be used on most areas of the body.

Because of the ablative nature of the laser treatment, patients should expect a downtime of 3-14 days after treatment. Patients are required to arrive at least 90 minutes before their treatment time so that anaesthetic can be applied. It is crucial that patients do not have exposure to the sun without sun protection for 6 months after treatment.

The price for Laser Resurfacing treatments start from: £450
