Our skin is up against a lot each day; pollution, sun, ageing and other environmental factors that can cause havoc on our skin, leading to many skin conditions. Australian sun can be especially unforgiving, with UV index reaching as high as 14 in the summer, commonly leading to pigmentation, sunspots and freckles.
Not to mention, another common skincare woe, acne. Affecting 85% of people aged 12–24 years, 64% of people aged 20–29 years and 43% in those aged and 30–39 years* with 95% of people experiencing scarring as a result.
Fortunately, advancements in laser technologies have meant that these pigmentation, acne and scarring concerns, can be dealt with quickly and effectively. The advanced excel V+ laser technology from medical aesthetic leaders, CUTERA, delivers unparalleled results in only a few short 15 – 30-minute treatments. Their signature Laser Genesis procedure delivers a no-downtime treatment to address skin revitalisation concerns, textural impurities, and scarring, that’s safe for all skin types.
Laser Genesis can also treat and clear acne, leaving you with a glowing and more even complexion. The laser treatment works through the targeted application of clinically proven laser wavelengths which stimulates collagen production and kills bacteria. The wavelengths are administered to specific areas of concern and absorbed by your body’s chromophores—molecules responsible for colour, as well as melanin, oxyhemoglobin, and water, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Heidi Salfield, owner and director of Skin Divinity Cosmetic Clinics, Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, advocates for Laser Genesis, which is a favourite among her celebrity clients including Elsa Pataky and Celeste Barber who seek holistic full-depth skin rejuvenation.
