AcuPulse™ Laser Rejuvenation

Premier Cosmetic Medical Clinic, Adelaide South Australia

AcuPulse laser rejuvenation treats a wide range of skin concerns including signs of skin ageing. It boosts the production of two important proteins in your skin such as collagen and elastin. These proteins play an integral role in maintaining the skin’s strength, elasticity, and hydration. The treatment also stimulates the natural wound healing response. This in turn significantly improves the texture and appearance of your skin.

How AcuPulse laser rejuvenation work

The laser device breaks up the laser energy into several tiny beams to target a specific area. This ensures that the surrounding skin is unaffected during the process. The laser energy then penetrates the deeper layers of your skin and heats water and tissue. This in turn stimulates your body’s natural wound healing response while boosting the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin undergoes a regenerative phase resulting in a smoother, vibrant, and younger-looking appearance.

  • Abnormal skin discoloration

What should I expect during the treatment?

During the procedure, you will receive an anaesthetic cream to numb the treatment area. You will also need to wear goggles or special glasses to protect your eyes. The laser device will be then applied over the treatment area to deliver light energy. The entire process usually has minimal to no discomfort. Most patients find that Acupulse treatment is a relaxing experience.

How long does the treatment take?

Depending on the size of the body area, the treatment can take 15 to 90 minutes to complete.

How many treatments will I need to achieve my desired results?

Most patients need one to two AcuPulse treatments to achieve noticeable results. In some cases, a third treatment may be necessary for serious skin conditions. The number of treatments will depend on your age, skin thickness, and skin condition. This will be determined by your surgeon during your initial consultation.

What to expect after the treatment?

After your AcuPulse laser treatment, it is normal to experience redness and mild swelling in the area. You may notice the presence of a fine grid-like pattern on your skin. After a few days, your skin will peel and the area will become pinkish in appearance. These are expected and are part of your body’s natural wound healing response. After one week, redness, swelling, and other discomforts should disappear completely. To keep your skin healthy as you heal, you will need to take your prescribed medications and ointments.

When can I see the results?

You will need to wait 3 to 6 months to see the results of your treatment. This will depend on several factors such as your skin condition and how you care for your skin after the treatment.

How long will the results last?

How long the results of your treatment will last will depend on your lifestyle and skincare regimen. To maintain the results, you will need follow-up treatments. Your surgeon will also provide you with specific instructions on how to care for the treated area.

What are the side effects of the treatment?

After the procedure, you may experience the following side effects:

  • Dryness
  • Irritation
  • Redness
  • Skin discoloration
  • Swelling

AcuPulse laser treatment has an exceptional safety record. To prevent complications, all of our treatments are performed by fully-trained surgeons and registered nurses.

  • Apply an ice pack wrapped in a clean, soft cloth to your skin.
  • Avoid hot baths or saunas.
