As we age our skin becomes less elastic and unwanted lines and folds start to appear on the surface of the skin. Laser skin resurfacing treatment provides a straightforward and effective solution to restoring that smooth, even and fresh surface appearance by using thermal energy to remove the very outer layers of skin, encouraging new skin to grow in its place. We offer two main laser skin resurfacing treatments at the Cadogan Clinic; ClearLift & Pixel Perfect. Each treatment has different benefits so we recommend that you discuss with your clinician which treatment will provide the best results for you.

ClearLift: Non – Ablative Skin Resurfacing

ClearLift treatment improves fine lines, wrinkles, the appearance of small veins and redness caused by vascularity. It is gentle enough to treat areas that are typically too sensitive to treat with traditional ablative lasers, such as the delicate skin around the eyes, neck, mouth and chest. ClearLift delivers a controlled dermal wound without harming the overlying epidermis so that all stages of healing and skin repair occur under the intact epidermis. As ClearLift heats deep beneath the skin (up to 3mm in depth) numbing is not required before treatment and all skin healing occurs without damaging the outer layer of skin. The whole treatment is fast and easy, taking just 20 minutes. It is also virtually painless and recovery time is not required.

Pixel Perfect™ Fractionated Laser Skin Resurfacing

Pixel Perfect™ is a revolutionary skin treatment that offers you the chance to look younger, healthier and feel radiant. The laser treatment clears sun damage such as age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and can also shrink the appearance of pores and smooth out acne scars, giving you the soft and flawless skin you desire. Pixel Perfect™ works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows for very rapid healing and improving your complexion as when collagen remodels, scars begin to fade and texture starts to improve.

Whatever your personal requirements, Skin Resurfacing at the Cadogan Clinic will provide the leading experts and techniques for your treatment at its state-of-the-art, purpose-built central London facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

IPL Skin Rejuvenation and Laser Skin Resurfacing are quite different treatments. An IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment consists of a series of high-intensity pulses of broad spectrum light, whereas Laser Skin Resurfacing delivers a direct beam of thermal energy to one specific target.

Laser Skin Resurfacing uses a laser beam focused on one specific wavelength and targets the very outer layers of the skin, which are removed, encouraging new skin to replace them. This process restores the smooth, even and fresh appearance that the skin tends to lose with age.

There are different types of Laser Skin Resurfacing. At Cadogan Clinic we offer mainly two: ClearLift & Pixel Perfect, each having its own specific benefits and advantages.

IPL, instead, emits pulses of broad spectrum light, which passes through several layers of skin at once, targeting only the unwanted cells.

IPL can improve the texture, quality, colour and health of your skin and treat multiple conditions simultaneously, such as the appearance of veins, capillaries, redness, age spots, blotchiness and freckles.
