COMBINED FACIAL THERAPY (CFT) USING LASER FOR YOUNGER SKIN
Using high grade Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) in a treatment combined with quality products we achieve some fantastic results. During this treatment we combine either a Glycolic Peel or Microdermabrasion with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Laser systems to maximise the benefits of both.
We would class this as one of our very top treatments in helping to hold back time and promote skin health. A good home care routine is a must including daily application of sun protection SPF30.
Our Lynton Laser systems have pre-programmed settings to maximise results for different skin types. Following a consultation, your therapist will advise the best treatments for you
What is involved in the treatment?
The Intense pulsed light (IPL) & Laser systems release precisely controlled pulses of filtered light. This stimulates the fibroblast cells within the skin which naturally produce Collagen and Elastin. This improves skin tone, radiancy and the tightness of the skin. Also, reducing any enlarged pores and giving a more uniform complexion.
You will be asked to put on goggles to protect your eyes and a layer of gel may be applied to the area to guide the light into the skin. The light applicator is placed onto the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
Are there any side effects?
Most clients experience no side effects, however the skin can become a little red for a few hours after treatment. Very rarely, hyperpigmentation, hypo pigmentation, but is usually temporary.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment. You may see a darkening of any pigmented spots before the crust falls off, leading to an evening of skin tone.
How many treatments are necessary?
Ideally treatments should be carried out every 2-3 weeks and 6 treatments are recommended for maximum results. Thereafter top-up sessions are performed as required.
How long does each treatment take?
A facial treatment, including a skin peel usually takes about 45 to 60 minutes.
All new clients who come to us for the first time for Facial Treatments are recommended to have a Consultation Facial as their first treatment. This allows us to fully assess your skin in our Skin Scanner then discuss with you any concerns and most importantly what you want to try and achieve.
After this consultation advice and guidance is provided along with a tailored facial as a first step to achieve the results you want.
If we think the CFT using laser is a good option for you then we would explain the next steps and all Laser Treatments require a Laser Consultation and patch test.
