Great, glowing skin will not change your life around instantly but feeling beautiful in your skin can give you a confidence boost to put your best foot forward in life. Here are some of the latest and hottest FDA-approved lasers for an uplifting transformation.
1. REDNESS AND ROSACEA
If your face is prone to blushing and flushing, and has tiny red pimple-like bumps, it might mean you have rosaccea. Characterised by dilatation of blood vessels and causing redness at the slightest irritation – cold, heat, alcohol, stress and even spicy food. Long suffering flushed faces may find relief from a pulsed dye laser called VBeam. This laser is the gold standard treatment for broken capillaries, redness and flushing, even even certain birthmarks such as port wine stains.
2. PIGMENT AND PORES
Laser treatments have been shown to be effective for tough pigments such as melasma, but conventional lasers have higher risk of worsening pigmentation when there is too much heat. Pico Pigment is the latest and hottest picosecond laser that minimizes this risk.. Delivering laser energy in much more rapid bursts compared to the traditional Q-switched nanosecond laser, this treatment shatters stubborn pigmentation into a fine dust via a photoacoustic (mechanical) effect, which is then naturally cleared more efficiently by the body.
3. SKIN TIGHTENING AND SCARS
Dull skin, fine lines or haunted by acne scars? One of the best treatments invented for these is the carbon dioxide laser, but skin refinements with these usually come at a price – downtime. The SmartX Lite laser however minimizes redness and swelling significantly and cuts the downtime easily by half! Thanks to its intelligent “dot therapy” which tracks and applies very fine laser columns first to areas of least heat, this treatment improves recovery and efficacy dramatically.

4. ILLUMINATE WITH LIGHT
We understand. Signs of aging creeps up on the face slowly but surely. These days, however, anti-aging measures are all about prejuvenation – preventive measures which delay the signs of aging. The Sciton Forever Young Broadband Light (BBL) uses light energy in the 560 and 590 wavelengths to treat wrinkles and skin laxity issues without downtime. This protocol has been shown in a Stanford study to reverse aging in genes over a period of time! This light-based technology gently targets and eliminates pigmentary irregularies including brown spots, facial redness and fades acne scars, brightening the skin within a single session. What is there not to love about this treatment!
5. TEXTURE AND TONE
Dull skin can be due to a variety of problems, such as spots as well as rough skin texture. Try a microresurfacing fractionated laser peel such as the BB Aquatouch, which imparts a photoshop retouching effect in a matter of 3 to 5 days! This thulium laser treats the basal epidermal layer of the skin which scrubs skin free of irregular colour and tone and also lightens melasma in a single session, leaving your skin dewy with a definite party glow.
