3 frequently asked questions about Laser skin treatments

Laser skin treatments are an advanced way to help you with your skin

At Ashbury Cosmetic Clinic in Brisbane and the Gold Coast we offer a range of laser skin treatments such as laser tattoo removal, laser hair removal and laser skin resurfacing.  Laser skin treatments are used by both men and women. Some clinics that offer laser hair removal are noticing that men are just as—if not more than—likely to have laser hair removal as women are. In a news article it was reported that men mostly between the ages of 30 and 40 get the backs, shoulders and chest done. With laser tattoo removal, places like the Gold Coast are noticing that the number of clients for the treatment is doubling.

But just what is laser skin treatment and what are the effects? At Ashbury Cosmetic Surgery in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast we used advanced technology to offer minimally invasive procedure to suit your individual needs.

1)      Who can have the treatment?

Basically, anyone can have the treatment. Laser treatment is arguably the most effective way to treat certain skin conditions; it is the only way tattoos can be removed; it’s a less painful way to deal with unwanted hair than waxing. However, there are some skin types that do not react well to the laser and that’s why it is always best to consult with a doctor before undergoing any treatment.

2)      Is the laser treatment safe?

The short answer is yes. The long answer is: the treatment is non-invasive and the technology has undergone numerous advances so that it is a safe and now common procedure.  At Ashbury Cosmetic surgery we have the latest technology in our practices and this—along with our skilled staff—helps us maintain a successful record.

3)      What should I expect from the treatment?

One question we do get asked a lot is: when’s a good time to have the treatment? The answer is simple: when you feel it is right for you. As to what you can expect from the treatment that depends largely on what treatment it is you’re undergoing:

  • For laser hair removal we use the iPulse which is a fast and effective method to give you silky-smooth skin year-round.
  • For laser skin re-surfacing, it is a safe option for treating sun damage, with approximately 10 days of downtime after the procedure.

It is important to emphasise that laser skin treatments are a safe option for dealing with any skin issues you might have.
