Laser skin treatments are as sophisticated than they’ve ever been and have the power to target some of the most chronic skin conditions to help reveal the clear complexion you’ve always wanted.
There’s a variety of laser treatments available that Fairview Laser Clinic proudly offers including the Yellow, Smoothbeam and Omnilux laser. While there are many similarities amongst the three, there are minor distinctions between them that make them more effective than the other, depending on what you’re looking to treat and the results you want to achieve.
To figure out which laser is right for you, let’s break down each one and what they have to offer:
The Yellow Laser is an all-star treatment that effectively treats some of the trickiest skincare conditions such as chronic acne, vascular lesions, discolouration and visible unwanted veins. What sets this laser apart from the others in the market is it’s precision and power range. The yellow laser emits light at a 577nm, an ideal range which can penetrate the skin at deeper levels to help treat it, without causing damage to the skin.
The Smoothbeam Laser is one of the industry’s top non-ablative laser treatments. What does that mean? Non-abrasive treatments work by heating up the targeted treatment area without actually damaging it. This method is incredibly effective when trying to stimulate collagen production in that particular area, which is ideal for improving skin conditions, scarring and signs of aging. Because the treatment is non-abrasive, the risks associated with it is a lot lower than other treatments. With that said, in order to get the smooth results you want, you may be required to get additional treatments.
The Omniliux is an impressive red light laser that helps stimulate collagen within the deepest layers of your skin. Because of this, it creates a visible lifting effect which helps smooth out imperfections on your face as well as even out skin tone. This painless treatment leaves skin looking bright and rejuvenated.
the first thing you want to consider in order to determine which laser treatment is right for you, are the desired results you’re looking for. While the Yellow and Omnilux laser provide similar, flawless skin results, if you’re looking you’re additional firming action around your face, you may want to opt for the Smoothbeam.
While patients can see noticeable results in just one treatment, you may be advised to have multiple sessions in order to achieve optimal and long lasting results. The amount of treatments you receive will depend on your skin, what you’re trying to treat as well as the laser treatment you go with which will be advised by your skincare specialist.
Results can last for varying amounts of time, depending on the laser treatment you get. The results of Omnilux can last depending on your treatment areas and the skin issues being addressed. The Yellow laser is similar but has the potential to provide long-term skin improvement even with just a couple sessions. Smoothbeam also offers impressive results, lasting anywhere between 12 months to four years. If you do maintenance treatments in between, results can last much longer for each respective treatment
The best way to find out which treatment is best for you is to have a consultation with your Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic. On the surface, a lot of these lasers have many similarities between them but they’re all very nuanced and diverse and the treatment that’s best for you will be based on a number of factors including the conditions you’re trying to treat, the severity of them, as well as your budget. To get a better sense of what’s best for you, have a consultation with your cosmetic dermatologist who will be able to guide you through the process.
