Youlase Collagen Stimulation and Skin Tightening
- Decrease fine lines & wrinkles
- Tighten & lift skin
- Resurface skin for textural improvement
One of the most visible effects of ageing on the skin is laxity and tightness. Our bodies naturally produce collagen and elastin – the structural foundations of the skin – which are in abundance when we are younger, but sadly diminish with age.
From the age of 25 collagen production starts to decline and noticeably more so for women than men. Following menopause a woman’s skin ages more quickly than any other time in her life. Clinical studies show that low oestrogen levels lead to up to 30% loss of skin’s collagen in the first 5 years of menopause and 2.1% loss each year there after.
Our advanced Youlase laser resurfacing treatment targets specific layers of the skin, causing controlled trauma to restore skin quality, firmness and tightness. The Youlase Multiplatform laser treatment combines ablative and non-ablative technology. This mixed technology laser uses fractional photo thermolysis to generate concentrated microthermal treatment zones in the skin creating columns of thermally denatured skin at a controlled width and depth.
Fractional technology resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin to treat wrinkles, skin laxity, pigmentation, acne scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars, surgical scars and more.
By resurfacing your skin with Youlase we are able to catalyse the process of collagen stimulation for tighter skin and achieve an anti-ageing effect.
After cleansing your skin, your aesthetician will apply a layer of a topical anaesthetic gel to the area of skin being treated. After 30-60 minutes it will be wiped off and treatment will commence. Your aesthetician or doctor will apply the laser to the treatment area. You will feel the warmth of the laser as the laser contacts the skin.
Cool air is applied to the area to ensure a comfortable treatment. After treatment is complete, SPF50 will be applied to the skin to protect it from UV rays and to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation from sun exposure. You will be told to avoid the sun for 2 weeks as your skin heals.
Treatment requirements vary depending on the severity of what is being treated, skin health, skin type etc. Generally speaking a course of 3 treatments is required with maintenance sessions to follow, ensuring long term results.
Immediately following treatment and over the following 3-5 days, superficial little pixelated scabs might develop. This is the resurfacing process at play and is expected. Once this clears results can be seen in 1-2 weeks with optimal results achieved 3-4 months after each treatment.
