1. How does laser resurfacing in Singapore work?
In essence, it works by stimulating collagen renewal to repair and rejuvenate. There are two types of methods: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative laser is designed to vaporise the outermost layers through controlled beams. It is a highly precise and effective technique of expelling damaged surface without disrupting the healthy layers underneath. Used for milder issues, non-ablative resurfacing involves heating up your lower layers to boost collagen production.
Your skin will be prompted to produce new collagen fibres, which will work to repair cells and improve overall quality. The result is a clearer, smoother, and firmer complexion which will last for a very long time. The procedure is safe and does not damage your surrounding healthy tissues, allowing you to heal at a faster rate.
2. Can I benefit from the procedure if I have acne scars?
Yes, you can. It is a splendid option to cure a range of issues that are very difficult to tackle on your own. Most of the time, over-the-counter products and natural remedies can only temporarily alleviate superficial conditions. For more severe or deep-set issues, this will be one of the best solutions. This is especially true for bad acne scars, which will not disappear with conventional products and methods as they cannot penetrate deep enough.
Acne scars can stay permanently as it is a sign that your tissues have been severely damaged. It is designed to efface any damaged surface you have while stimulating the collagen production in the layers that sit underneath. The result? More levelled texture, reduced appearance of pits and scarring, and enhanced radiance.
3. What else can I treat through laser resurfacing?
It can be used to restore suppleness and youthfulness by softening signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and lines around your eye and lip regions. Another area of concern that can be solved is dark or discoloured spots triggered by hyperpigmentation. The procedure will enable you to obtain an even tone by removing your dark pigmentation. Enlarged pores can also be minimised as your surface will smoothen and even out due to the significant collagen boost.
4. What can I expect from laser resurfacing in Singapore?
This process is considered a non-invasive method as there will be no surgical instruments involved in the procedure. When you are in the room, a numbing cream will be applied to your face to minimise discomfort from the beams. You will also be wearing safety goggles during the procedure.
During the procedure, short light energy pulses will be delivered. You will generally not experience any pain during the procedure. With that said, you may feel some heat on your face or a sensation that is similar to a rubber band lightly snapping on you. You can rest assured that our qualified therapists will ensure you remain comfortable throughout your session.
5. How soon can I expect to see results?
Depending on the severity and depth of your condition, you can generally expect to see slight improvements even after your first session. You will continually generate collagen for up to six months after, so you can observe more noticeable improvements week after week. Upon the completion of your course, you can expect to see a significant reduction in your acne scarring, as well as a brighter and more radiant complexion. Your skin will also be a lot more supple as the active collagen generation improves elasticity and evens out rough textures.
6. Will the results last long?
One of the best things is that the results can be extremely long-lasting. Your complexion will naturally age as your grow older and you may need to revisit our clinic for a session in the future. However, when it comes to issues such as acne scarring, you will find that your complexion is likely to remain rejuvenated and speckless for a long period of time after undergoing this procedure. Furthermore, it can actually make your surface a lot healthier and more resilient due to the enhanced collagen renewal.
