What is a Laser Facial?
There are many procedures with very little downtime and mild side effects. However, it is quite rare to find a true laser treatment with absolutely no downtime and excellent results. The Motus AY Laser Facial is just such a treatment. This Nd:YAG laser treatment for the face is non-ablative, meaning that it does not injure or remove the skin. Therefore, there is nothing to heal.
The laser deep heats tissue in the treatment zone, boosting collagen development to improve the texture, tone, and health of skin. It is gentle enough for use on sensitive skin, and versatile enough to treat vascular and pigmented lesions, scars, and much more.
What skin conditions can a Laser Facial treat?
Uneven skin tone and texture
Diffuse redness or rosacea
Who is a good candidate for treatment?
A Laser Facial is completely noninvasive and exceptionally gentle, even for sensitive skin.
Virtually anyone is a potential candidate for this unique laser facial treatment. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures as part of a complete treatment plan. In fact, increased collagen production from this treatment can complement and enhance the results of other anti-aging treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, a series of 4 to 6 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart are recommended to achieve optimal results.
What will happen during the treatment?
A gentle warming sensation will be felt while the micro-pulses of laser energy are layered on the skin. This treatment is often described as relaxing and therapeutic. The light emits from a small handpiece, which is passed over the treatment area slightly above the skin surface.
Preparation is simple, because anesthetics and cooling gels are usually not needed. The treatment area will need to be clean and free of residue or debris. We recommend avoiding makeup on treatment day or removing it prior to your appointment.
Your provider moves the applicator in a very precise pattern for uniform energy delivery. You should notice some heat, but no pain. The entire procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
What should I expect after the treatment?
The best side effects are no side effects, and that is exactly what makes this treatment unique. Immediately after your treatment, you may notice mild facial reddening associated with a sensation of heat that should disappear within a few hours. Results are typically seen immediately but can take 3-4 weeks to appear as the new cells reach the surface of the skin and the body’s collagen production increases. Individual results do vary depending on your skin condition.
When will I see results?
Patients often begin noticing a slight reduction in redness, improvement in texture, and overall healthy glow within days of their very first Laser Facial session. After that, skin keeps looking better and seemingly “growing younger” for several months as treatments continue.
Noninvasive, downtime-free treatments such as this Laser Facial works more subtly than procedures such as ablative skin resurfacing. Natural rejuvenation from within and the development of new collagen are gradual processes, so there is no distinctive overnight transformation.
Instead, skin gradually becomes smoother, softer, firmer, and healthier in the weeks following a laser session. Additional improvement occurs after the next session, and so on, until your treatment plan is complete. The full results are apparent within a few weeks to a couple of months after your last appointment.
