‘We have the best technology and the best technicians, but our success lies in our relationships with our customers”
This treatment is for clients who would like to look a few years younger. Which is probably most of us!
Wrinkles are a natural part of ageing and form in part, because the supportive components of the skin i.e. elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, degrade as we get older. Although much research has been directed at understanding why this happens, it is still a mystery.
What we do know is that sun exposure, lifestyle choices such as smoking & alcohol and our genetic pre-disposition, cause damage to the natural layers of the skin and destroy collagen. There are many techniques for reducing the visible signs of ageing and wrinkle reduction injections is a common one. If this is too aggressive for you, GentleLASE from Candela, is a proven collagen re-modelling technique designed to reduce wrinkles (particularly periorbital) and renew skin.
How does the Candela GentleLASE laser help?
The laser renews skin by stimulating the formation of new collagen beneath the surface of your skin. This process reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 8 to 12 treatments are recommended.
Will I be red afterward?
You will have redness for a period of up to three hours, although in some cases the redness can stay longer.
How long does it take?
The treatments are very quick. They generally take around 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the area of treatment.
Are the results permanent?
The collagen stimulus is semi-permanent, however, you may have to come back for 1-2 additional treatments each year to keep the results fresh.
