The Youlase Multiplatform laser treatment combines ablative and non-ablative technology to treat acne scarring on the face.
This mixed technology laser uses fractional photothermolysis 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 acne scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars, surgical scars and more. By resurfacing your skin with Youlase you will restore a smooth texture of your skin and diminish the pigmentation left behind from acne scarring.
Another benefit of this laser treatment is the pixelated micro-traumas caused by resurfacing the skin will stimulate collagen as the body heals itself for supple skin and 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 the topical anaesthetic 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 with targeted beams of light. 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 the scarring 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.
