As you are all aware we have opened a brand new Laser Clinic in Tooting Bec. These are exiting times for Beauty Lady and more importantly for our valued clients. Not only we have multiple Laser rooms for Soprano Platinum Laser Hair removal we will be introducing the latest Cool Laser Machine.
What is Cool Laser?
Cool Laser is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can help smooth wrinkles and improve the appearance scars including acne scars, pigmentation spots such as age spots and melasma and stretch marks. It can also remove warts and other benign skin growths such as skin tags, and can be another alternative for treating excess wrinkles on the eyelid or under the eyes – a non-surgical blepharoplasty. It is also used to tighten skin around the jawline or on the neck and chest and can plump lips without the use of fillers.
It is called Cool Laser because of its method of ablation (skin removal). It uses a pulse of laser light that is shorter in duration and only targets the water within the layers of the skin, leaving other tissue unharmed. It does not burn the skin or heat the skin as much as other types of laser such as CO2 lasers, and as a result it is considered more comfortable and there is less downtime.
It is suitable for ALL skin types.
What is the treatment like?
For facial treatments for rejuvenation, skin tightening or pigmentation, the skin will be cleansed and a local anaesthetic may be used in sensitive areas, although many patients find this isn’t necessary. The pulse is moved over the area and there is a clicking noise as it fires. The sensation is one of mild sunburn.
For scarring and stretch marks the laser pulse is moved across the area being treated and depending on the severity one or two passes may be needed.
For skin tag or benign growth removal the laser pulse is more focused and the unwanted spot is vapourised. This would be done with a local anaesthetic.

Is there any downtime?
You will find redness and will have the feel of mild sunburn in the areas that has been treated, This should all subside with a few hours of treatment. The redness usually disappears between 1 to 5 days after having the treatment. The skin will also feel quite sensitive to touch and therefore we do advise not to put on any unnecessary make up and please avoid touching skin. In terms of skin rejuvenation on the face there will be skin peeling and also mild crusting for a few days after the treatment. The skin will need to be hydrated and moisturised and continue to use a high quality SPF30 or above.
