Special beams, or lasers, of thermal energy penetrate deep into the layers of the problem area of the skin. These beams of energy can precisely target the part of the skin that you are looking to improve, making for a very targeted treatment. Once the older, damaged layers of the skin have been removed, the body’s own healing reaction kicks in to create newer skin which is tighter, smoother and has fewer blemishes. The time this treatment takes will depend on the size of the targeted area undergoing laser skin resurfacing. A smaller area such as the chin or upper lip may take around 20 – 30 minutes to treat successfully.
This treatment can be used either on the full face or for specially selected target areas. A local anaesthetic is often used to accompany the procedure. It can take around 8 – 10 days to fully recover and bruising should be expected for around a fortnight.
Laser resurfacing is a great solution for those whose skin condition is not extreme enough to be considered a viable candidate for a face lift.

A small area will cost around £1,000, with a larger full face treatment rising to around £4,000.
