Let’s face it: age is not for the faint-hearted. Sun exposure, particularly without adequate SPF protection, can lead to many skin issues like wrinkles, discolouration and loss of skin elasticity across different parts of your body.

Luckily, with the advancement in skin treatments in Broadmeadows, it’s not something you face alone! We understand these challenges and offer advanced techniques and equipment to minimise discomfort, ensuring a revitalised and youthful appearance.

How Do Skin Resurfacing Treatments Work?

Our skin clinic in Broadmeadows is equipped with state-of-the-art laser technology to target various skin concerns safely and effectively, working below the surface to remove the upper layers and peel away the years, one treatment at a time.

iPixel Er:YAG Laser Treatments

This treatment is a gentler solution to improve your skin’s tightness, texture and tone with shorter recovery times.

Recovery: Expect a shorter recovery, with redness and swelling subsiding within 3–7 days and complete healing in 2–3 weeks.

Dot Therapy, CO2 Laser

Dot therapy is better suited for deep-rooted skin issues, providing impressive results for skin tightening and overall rejuvenation.

Recovery: Notable redness and flaking are typical, with initial recovery spanning 5–10 days and complete healing within 3–4 weeks. Skin improvement continues for up to 6 months with proper care.

How To Speed Up Healing After Laser Resurfacing?

While laser treatments offer transformative possibilities, unlocking their full potential hinges on dedicated post-care.

Immediately Post-Treatment

  • No contact lenses until the swelling has subsided.
  • Avoid rubbing eyes for 24 hours post-treatment.
  • Apply cool compresses and elevate to manage swelling, especially around the eyes. Use a barrier between ice and skin to prevent freeze burns.
  • Cleanse skin 3–4 times daily with tepid water and a fragrance-free cleanser.
  • After showering, apply a hypochlorous acid-containing spray for soothing relief.
  • Keep your skin hydrated with Aquaphor or Vaseline, especially in the first 2 days.

Days 2–4

Day 5 Onwards

  • Gradually reintroduce regular skincare products, focusing on antioxidant serums packed with vitamins C and E and retinoids for their wrinkle-smoothing and collagen-boosting properties.

Day 7 and Beyond

  • Start washing your face twice daily, and switch out the hypochlorous acid-containing spray for a soothing cream.

Special Care Requirements

  • Avoid picking at your skin to prevent scarring and allow for natural healing.
  • Do not let your skin dry out.
  • Maintain a strict SPF 50+ sunscreen regimen to protect your rejuvenated skin.
