How To Look Younger Without Taking Time Off Work
January 12th, 2018
Even with the best of care, ageing skin is something we will all experience eventually. You can reduce the visible signs of ageing by limiting exposure to the sun and using sunscreen, having a healthy lifestyle, not smoking and generally caring for your skin. If, however, you are still unhappy with the look and feel of your skin and want to do something about it without the downtime associated with traditional facial resurfacing treatments, now you can. ResolveTM facial rejuvenation is a new treatment option that is achieving excellent results with no pain and zero downtime.
ResolveTM Facial Rejuvenation
ResolveTM is a unique breakthrough technology that is the most effective facial rejuvenation laser available with no downtime, meaning you don’t have to take time off work or miss social events because of damaged skin. The mechanism of action of Resolve’sTM fractional laser is based on photomechanical injury within the dermis of the skin. The laser energy is focused in the dermis, and creates tiny wounds under the surface of the skin. The injury triggers a process of repair, where new cells are recruited from the undamaged sections to repair the tissue and produce new collagen and elastin.
ResolveTM is the world’s first Picosecond Holographic Fractional Laser system designed for facial rejuvenation. Picosecond means a trillionth of a second, which means the laser creates injury with very little heat, so it doesn’t damage the skin’s surface. ResolveTM can be used on all skin types, even those who are prone to melasma and other hyper-pigmentation conditions.
The laser is holographic because the hundreds of thousands of laser pinpoints are focused beneath the epidermal layer. This revolutionary technology delivers the laser energy into the dermal layer where the most effective collagen and elastin production occurs. This is the same method used to make the 3D images inside crystals without damaging the surface of the crystal.
The ResolveTM laser is ‘fractionated’ – applied to the skin in a grid pattern – dividing the energy into hundreds of thousands of columns per square inch that produce controlled microscopic injury in the dermis. The unaffected tissue between the columns of ablated tissue ensures rapid healing and lowers risks.
What Can ResolveTM Facial Rejuvenation Treat?
ResolveTM rejuvenation treats the following skin concerns:
- Reduces fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Reduces acne and acne scars
- Reduces stretch marks
- Evens out skin pigmentation like age spots
- Reduces scarring
- Reduces open pores (orange peel skin)
- Smooths skin texture
ResolveTM is a safe treatment option (there is no risk of scarring, infection or changes to skin colour) and there is no recovery period so you don’t need to worry about taking time off work. The clinic will advise you on the best treatment schedule, depending on your individual needs, but the recommended schedule is 3-5 treatments, 3-4 weeks apart.
You will notice a significant improvement in texture, skin firmness, fine lines and wrinkles after the second treatment, but it takes around 3-6 months to see the final results. We then recommend maintenance treatments every 6 months and sunscreen when you are outdoors to help maintain the benefits.
