Collagen Hyser, is a lunchtime laser treatment which targets collagen stimulation and promotes anti-ageing benefits.
Ageing causes the skin to become less elastic and more fragile. Fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are all caused by the lack of collagen. Collagen Hyser uses non-ablative Nd:YAG laser technology to create a high intensity beam of energy that concentrates into powerful pulses to the skin. When applied to skin at a specific wavelength, it can deeply stimulate collagen and elastin fibres to rebuild the superficial layers of the skin. The skin remodelling effect results in a smoother and more youthful appearance.
This is a versatile laser treatment which gently addresses a multitude of skin concerns with minimal to no downtime.
Before the start of the procedure, informing the doctor of any medication you are consuming is critical. Medications such as Isotretinoin (Accutane) for the treatment of acne could increase the risk of scarring and something as unsuspecting as aspirin could increase the risk of bleeding.
Always keep in mind that a board-certified healthcare practitioner or a licensed medical doctor should carry out the procedure to ensure safety is maintained. As with any procedure, there are some risks. For example, skin resurfacing can result in abnormal healing and in extremely rare situations, infection could set in. Due to the heat of the laser, injuries such as burns could occur. Some might find that they are more prone to cold sore or acne outbreaks and in some cases, itching. Viral, bacterial and fungal infections could occur after the treatment too. However, as uncommon as these outcomes are, and the chances of experiencing such effects is avoidable, maintaining awareness of such repercussions is crucial.
Generally, the larger the area requiring treatment, the deeper the laser has to penetrate. This naturally results in an extended recovery time. It is also not uncommon to find your skin an alarming red with scabs forming over the skin’s surface and slight peeling in certain places. Use ice packs to calm irritated skin and reduce swelling. While it is not necessary to stay home, avoidance of places such as gyms, where germs are in higher concentration, is advised to avoid incurring a greater risk of infection.
For treatments that do not require prolonged periods under powerful lasers, clients can look forward to a quicker recovery time and can avoid side effects like skin peeling or crusting which are bound to happen with more aggressive lasers that can ablate the skin’s surface and cause such conditions to last for about a week. Also, with stronger lasers, there are other side effects to factor in; burning sensations, bumps, rashes, swelling, infections and scarring could precede the pink of healing skin.
