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 and rejuvenation treatment provides a highly effective, simple solution to restore 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.
The treatment is extremely straightforward and can take from as little as 20 minutes per session. There is no associated downtime.
The method restores a refreshed appearance on the face and neckline without the need for more invasive anti-ageing treatments.Get in touch
Laser skin resurfacing treatment is most suitable for patients who are skin type 1-3 on the Fitzpatrick scale. That is, those who are either light-to-medium in skin tones and have skin imperfections due to ageing and sun damage.
We typically recommend laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatment for those just beginning to experience the signs of ageing, such as pigmentation change, age spots, sun damage, and wrinkles, as well as those with pre-existing medical conditions such as acne scars.
All patients will require a patch test ahead of their first treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing is a thermal photorejuvenation technique, that removes old skin cells using heat produced by a laser.
The skin resurfacing treatment removes the outer layers of the skin and stimulates the body to create new skin cells in their place. This alters the surface appearance of the skin and reduces the appearance of cosmetic blemishes such as wrinkles, scars and pigmentation irregularities.
The laser simultaneously heats the underlying skin layers and causes the collagen fibres which bind skin together to tighten and leave the skin with a more toned, rejuvenated appearance.
Whilst the treatment is unable to prevent future ageing, it is highly effective at reversing existing signs of ageing on the skin.
Laser variants used as part of laser skin resurfacing treatment include:
Laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat one or more of the following skin concerns:

Who performs laser skin resurfacing?
At the Cadogan Clinic laser skin resurfacing can be performed by one of our highly trained cosmetic dermatologists, or one of our skilled aesthetic practitioners.
What is the fitzpatrick scale and why is it used?
The Fitzpatrick scale is an objective skin type classification scale used to determine whether laser skin resurfacing is a suitable treatment for you.
Only skin types 1 to 3 on the scale are suitable for laser skin resurfacing treatment
What are the various laser types utilised in laser skin resurfacing?
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
We typically recommend 3 to 4 treatments for the very best outcomes, but this is determined by the pre-existing status of your skin condition. Your aesthetician can discuss this with you at your free consultation.
IS LASER SKIN RESURFACING PAINFUL?
Laser skin resurfacing treatment should be virtually painless. We liken the pain to a pinch or an elastic band snapping against the skin. Topical anaesthetic can be applied if required.
WHEN WILL I START TO SEE RESULTS?
You should expect healing to take place in the first 5 – 7 days. That said, the skin's surface should immediately appear healthier, and first results should start to be seen after the very first treatment.
The underlying structure of the skin should improve for six months as new collagen is generated.
The very best results should be seen after a course of treatment, by which time your skin should appear completely rejuvenated and revitalised with a noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture, and a dramatic reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
IS LASER SKIN RESURFACING SAFE?
Yes laser skin resurfacing is safe if performed by a qualified practitioner in a medical environment.
ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS FROM LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
Side effects are rare, but like any cosmetic procedure are possible. This can include:
These can be mitigated by qualified practitioners practicing in a safe medical environment and according to proper protocols.
WHAT OTHER SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS DO YOU OFFER?
Skin rejuvenation treatments can be classified as follows:
We offer all of these at the Cadogan Clinic and would be delighted to explain the various pros and cons at your initial consultation.
CAN LASER SKIN RESURFACING BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPL AND LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
IPL Skin Rejuvenation and Laser Skin Resurfacing are very different treatments.
An IPL Skin Rejuvenation treatment consists of a series of high-intensity pulses of broad-spectrum light that pass through several layers of skin at once, targeting only the unwanted cells. IPL can thus 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.
By contrast, 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.
We offer two main Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments: ClearLift & Pixel Perfect, each having its own specific benefits and advantages.
