A new non evasive laser treatment which leaves you with clearer looking skin is set to take 2013 by storm. Favoured by celebrities such as Jennifer Anniston, ‘Clear and Brilliant’ is an extremely low powered non-ablative Fraxel laser gaining more popularity in Sydney is targeted for 20 to 30-year-old’s with slight sun damage skin.
In a Solta Medical Clinical Study in Sydney, 92% of patients using ‘Clear and Brilliant’ claimed their skin looked younger, felt smoother and they saw a noticeable “Clear + Brilliant glow” after a series of treatments.
The treatment, which takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes, utilises the patented Intelligent Optical Tracking System (IOTS). This guarantees that the whole treated area looks even all over as it ensures the professional applying the treatment maintains proper contact with the skin.
The quick turnaround time has made it a quick-fire favourite with celebrities and the general public alike, with people having the option to have the treatment just a day before an event.
Solta, the makers of the laser in Sydney, are also behind the increasingly popular Fraxel laser treatment. Laser clinics in Sydney have seen a massive upturn in demand for the product after celebrities KimKardashian and Courtney Cox have openly admitted their youthful appearance and clear skin is down to the product.
Talking about the product on the Oprah Winfrey show the reality TV star said: “I’m like, girls, you should go get a Fraxel laser on your face. I’m really open about telling all my friends and my sisters what the best treatments are.’ The 48-year-old Friends star opened up about the treatment on the ‘Tonight Show with Jay Leno on the 4th of January. Leno on notices how young the actress looked complimented her on her appearance, while Cox tried to cover up her arms by wearing a long sleeved top.
“I’m hiding my hands because I just did a peel and no one needs to see (the skin peeling)… it feels like alligator skin…I’m a big laser believer I really think they are the wave of the future,” she said.
The treatment works by putting microscopic laser energy into the skin and creating columns of injury. As the body then naturally heals it gets rid of the damaged columns, making the body create collagen to create a newer and overall smoother skin surface.
The Fraxer laser is stronger than ‘Clear and Brilliant’, and targets more severe dark spots and wrinkles. Both treatments recommend a series of around five to eight treatments, before topping up every two years.
One newer trend with could rival the Fraxel laser treatment in years to come is Intracel, a revolutionary skin resurfacing technology that delivers heat energy below the surface of the skin. Instead of burning the skin like traditional lasers, Intracel directs the radio frequencies just below the skin. This cuts down on the reactions the skin has to the treatment and means that any redness and swelling is gone within a few hours.
To make Intracel as effective as the Fraxel laser it combines three effective treatments; radio frequency, micro needling and fractional treatment. The small needles pierce the skin and once inside deliver the laser treatment. As the needles are so spread out the healthy skin is preserved which actually aids in the healing and growth of new tissue which creates a tightening and smoothing of the skin.
The treatment has been proven especially successful in the decreasing of neck and smoker lines. The product was originally conceived as a treatment for acne. The radio frequency energy from Intracel laser can take away cells, destroying the causes of acne, acne bacteria and sebaceous glands.
The whole treatment takes around an hour and a half and you are advised to have three more follow ups over the course of a six week period. Once you have completed the course you can expect to have to go back for treatment every two years to help to maintain a youthful looking appearance.
