Facial redness can seem like a tricky concern to treat, with clients often been prescribed harsh topical creams with no improvements. At COSMPLASTIK we have Spectra Laser gold toning, a non abrasive treatment that uses a laser to target the root of the cause which lies deeper in the skin.
Using a unique 595 nm wavelength, Gold Toning Treats:
- Facial Flushing.
- Post Acne Redness.
How does it Work?
The principle of this treatment is not to destroy the target blood vessels like traditional lasers but to normalize them, thus reducing inflammation. This limits the damage to the surrounding area and restores the healthy state of the affected cells in the skin.
What to expect during treatment?
The skin is cleansed, and goggles are applied to protect the eyes.
The handpiece is glided 1cm above the skin and worked around the whole area multiple times, a slight heat sensation is felt on the skin.
This is a relatively comfortable treatment with no downtime.
Need to Know:
- Skin must be cleansed from make-up prior to the appointment
- Procedure time: 30 minutes
- No Patch Test Required
- Zero Downtime
A minimum SPF 30 must be worn every day to prevent a reaction from daylight and sunlight.
Avoid the use of retinols, exfoliating products, bleaching agents and other forms of harsh products for 1 week after treatment as to not overstimulate the surface of the skin.
Avoid waxing, threading and other hair removal products/procedures for 48 hours.
Avoid sun exposure, excessive heat e.g. sauna/steam and hot bath for 24-48 hours to avoid extra heat on the area.
You may experience redness/swelling on the area, this usually disappears within 1-2 hours after treatment but in some cases 1-2 days. A towel wrapped ice pack can help with this.
Keep the area moisturized with a non-perfumed product for quicker healing.
Avoid makeup for 24 hours.
Avoid exercise and swimming for 24-48 hours to prevent chemicals and sweat secretion from going onto the treated area as this can decrease healing time.
You may experience a burning sensation on the skin, if this occurs apply a cold compress onto the area.
