Laser Lunchtime Lift
Dr Perry explains the technology:
“This is a relatively new concept in terms of lasers.”
“The type of laser has been around for a long period of time. However, the new laser has taken a very unique aspect of it, so rather than the laser just firing directly into the skin in one long pulse, it’s broken up that pulse so it means that they can deliver as much energy as they want without creating any downtime or redness or swelling; so it’s a real game-changer in terms of being able to have a proper full-effect laser without any downtime and that’s the beauty of it, and that’s why it’s called the lunchtime lift.”
The Daily Mail reporter had a treatment which was to concentrate on pigmentation:
- areas of redness around the chin
- complexion on the cheeks
- pigmentation on the forehead
Dr Perry continues:
“The nice thing about this laser is that it is multi-faceted, so it can treat a variety of things.”
Treatment takes around 15-20 minutes for a full face, so is ideal for a quick appointment which fits into patients’ other commitments.
“The nice thing about this laser is that it actually isn’t painful. I’m sure patients and people out there have had IPL in the past, which feels like a small elastic band snapping onto the face. This is completely different. This is not treating the superficial layers but the deeper layers so it restructures the collagen and by doing that it helps increase the complexion.”
Laser Treatment Demonstration
Dr Ross Perry starts with a low laser setting, but explains that it is built up to higher energy for the more difficult areas of pigmentation. The higher energy works deeper within the skin and can also be used to treat melasma.
Dr Perry explains that patients will get an initial glow after treatment
“Hence the other name for it is a ‘laser peel’ – even though the skin doesn’t actually peel, you get the effect of a peel for 2-3 days afterwards which gives the skin a nice glow, hence it’s perfect pre and post party season.”
He also explains that the laser can be used quite close to the eye area to help with crows’ feet and signs of tiredness:
“It just plumps out the area, better than any creams or lotions will do.”
The patient says it doesn’t hurt at all:
“I can’t feel anything, quite a nice warm sensation actually.”
The warm glow will generally last 3-4 days, but collagen rebuilding will start to show at a month.
Dr Perry recommends a course of treatment for best results, the benefits of which will last for around a year.
