Lynton Lumina with ResurFace
ResurFace - Fractional Laser
The Award winning Lynton Laser ResurFACE is one of our most popular skin treatments that gives total rejuvenation to give the skin a firm, smooth, youthful and glowing appearance.
How does Fractional Skin Resurfacing work
Minute sections of the skin are targeted with laser light, which penetrates into the tissue, causing small columns of thermal damage which in turn stimulates significant collagen renewal. The surrounding non affected areas of the skin aid the body's natural recovery process, allowing dramatic results without significant down time

Where can it be used?
It can be used anywhere on the body: as a whole face treatment , to treat isolated areas. popular places are: whole faces, upper lip, crepe skin above naval, neck .... the list is endless - so come and have a chat if you would like to know more!
Will I be Suitable?
This treatment is suitable for all skin types, and even possible if you have a tan or have used fake tan - that is because the laser targets water in your skin and not melanin. You will however have to wait for two weeks post any other procedure and temporarily stop using rentinol and possible some other skin treatments - I will discuss this further in your consultation
How is the Treatment Carried Out & What does it feel like ?
You should arrive without make up. Your face will be cleansed prior to treatment. The hand piece will be moved over the skin delivering microscopic beams. Treatment times can vary depending on area being treated. The treatment it self is not painful, but for deeper treatments can feel mild discomfort. Afterwards the skin can get quite hot & feel a little like sunburn, at this time we cool your skin while you relax.
Are there Side Effects or Down Time?
You will experience a mild sunburnt sensation for a few hours after the treatment and skin may be red for 1-2 days. This is a normal sign that the skin is healing to a deeper level. Swelling is likely but minimal and resolves after 1-3 days, As your skin heals you may develop a bronzed appearance and then at 7-10 days your skin will flake of naturally as if you had a tan.
Unwanted effects are rare but can include a small blister or temporary change to skin pigmentation - such as darkening.
You will be patch tested prior to your treatment. and your suitability to have this treatment will be determined during consultation.
