What is it and how does it help?

If you’ve got problem skin, Sellas Evo 1550nm and / or the Lavieen 1927nm non ablative resurfacing might be the answer. Particularly effective in healing scars, the procedure also refines skin complexion by reducing pore-size and uneven skin colouring. It works well for all skin types, including dark skin or sensitive skin that marks easily. It’s ideally suited for the face, neck, décolletage and back of hands.

How does it work?
Both Sellas Evo and the Lavieen resurfacing involves a gentle but deeply penetrating laser that directs micro-columns of infra-red light to heat skin tissue. A computer-guided scanner accurately fixes the laser parameters – such as depth, rate and scan pattern – giving a precise and uniform effect on the skin. This stimulates a regenerative response in the skin to produce clearer, more vibrant and healthier looking skin.
How are they different from fractional CO2 resurfacing?
All these procedures use state-of-the-art fractional technology to get the most out of the cosmetic benefits of laser skin resurfacing, while keeping the side-effects and recovery time to a minimum. They both use non-ablative (minimally invasive) laser light to treat the skin which allows for a rapid recovery time. The non- columns of laser beam can be varied in width, depth and density for a treatment program that is just right for you. Fractional CO2 resurfacing delivers fractional lasering in a similar way, but is an ablative laser (moderately invasive) with greater intensity, and tends to have a longer recovery time. Many patients benefit most from a combination of the different fractional lasers that are available in the practice. The non-ablative lasers, apart from having less down time are safer in darker ethnic skin types.
