Laser Skin Resurfacing

Information

At Shire Cosmetic Medicine we have utilized numerous methods of skin resurfacing over the last decade. These include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, skin needling, coblation, thermage and laser.

Currently, we believe that fractionated laser treatments are the preferable modality of choice and the safest options. Historically, fraxel was a non-ablative fractionated laser that required repeat treatments to achieve a desired result.  It is an effective, cutting edge technology but has been superseded by collimated fractional carbon dioxide lasers.

At Shire Cosmetic Medicine we have chosen to use both a NON-ABLATIVE PALOMAR EMERGE LASER  as well as a cutting edge technology CO2 CARBON DIOXIDE ABLATIVE LUMENIS ULTRAPULSE ENCORE LASER.  The advantages of the Ultrapulse Encore skin resurfacing laser is that treatment can be given in a single session and the laser energies can be adjusted to the patient’s requirements/requests.  As such, this fractional laser is a very useful adjunctive laser for facelift or blepharoplasty surgery and also useful for shaving or cutting out skin lesions.  It is also proving to be a very effective treatment for scars, burns and stretch marks as well as sun damaged décolletage.

The laser encompasses both ActiveFX and DeepFX treatments to provide TotalFX treatment.  Shire Cosmetic Medicine is proud to be the first clinic in Australia to provide this most advanced form of fractional laser skin resurfacing.

Lumenis Ultrapulse Encore carbon dioxide laser skin resurfacing remains the “gold standard laser” for skin/collagen tightening.  More information can be obtained by mail on request from our Clinic.
