Laser rejuvenation has been used by doctors since the 1960s and has proven, long lasting results for tighter, brighter, thicker and more resilient skin. Technology advances in the last few years has increased the safety of the procedures and reduced the cost, making laser treatments more widely available. There are still substantial differences when it comes to the laser machines and at DermaZone we only use the best, UK manufactured, laser systems. In fact it is the only system that is recommended on the NHS purchasing list.
Laser stimulates the collagen and elastin production in the skin, causing the skin to tighten and regain the thickness and elasticity lost with age. Broken capillaries, pigmented marks and red scars are visibly reduced with just a few sessions. More severe cases of rosacea, red veins and solar keratosis can be targeted using specialised settings and improved or removed.
At DermaZone we use a combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), ND:Yag (1064nm), Active Q-Switched laser and Fractional laser for the best combination treatment for you.
For deeper scars, stretch marks and drastic skin tightening, we recommend the award winning Lynton Lumina Fractional Laser. Fractional laser treatments stimulates your skin's natural healing process, resulting in accelerated collagen production and a renewal process that takes years off your skin. Fractional laser skin resurfacing can remedy a number of common skin concerns. Our most anti-ageing laser procedure, the Lynton Lumina fractional laser technology can treat lines and wrinkles, improve overall skin tone and elasticity and restore a youthful glow. Fractional laser resurfacing also finally offers a solution for Acne Scarring, Sun Damaged skin and pigment disorders such as melasma and stretch marks.

What is Fractional Laser Treatment?
LyntonFractional Laser Treatment is a 'fractional' treatment that treats minute sections of the skin, which penetrate into the dermis to stimulate significant collagen renewal. The surrounding non-affected areas of the skin aid the body’s natural recovery process for dramatic results without significant recovery time. As the new collagen filled cells replace the old tissue the skin has an even tone, becomes plumper, smoother and less lined.
What does treatment feel like?
A warm, heating sensation may be felt but is considered very tolerable by most people. The system has an inbuilt cooler which will cool the skin first, ensuring treatment is more comfortable.
What should I expect after treatment?
Your skin may appear red and flushed for a few hours after treatment. However, our Lynton laser is unique and treats the tiniest section of skin in comparison to other fractional lasers. Therefore, any redness or swelling is very minimal. As the old skin tissue sheds your skin may appear more bronzed or tanned for a few days post treatment. Your skin will naturally exfoliate and may flake as if you have mild sunburn.
How many treatments will I need?
We often advise a series of three to six treatments for optimal results. If acne scarring or surgical scarring is your primary concern you may require additional sessions. Treatment is carried out every four to eight weeks but your laser clinician will advise the optimal frequency during your consultation.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare but could include a small blister. Any blistering is superficial and would heal within a week or two.
