Those who wish to get rid of mild scarring, wrinkles and saggy skin often use laser resurfacing.
What is laser resurfacing?
Laser Resurfacing involves applying a laser to the skin, which vaporises or ‘ablates’ the surface of your skin. This is registered by the skin as an injury, and the skin immediately deploys extra collagen and elastin to the skin cells, so the skin can heal. This collagen and elastin, while healing, also plumps the skin, therefore reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sagging and mild scarring.
Traditional laser skin resurfacing involves ablating the entire skin surface, while the newer fractional laser resurfacing only ablates tiny columns in the skin, leaving untreated areas in between.
While laser resurfacing is effective, it has a number of significant drawbacks, including significant recovery time, pain during the treatment and the expense involved, as patients need a number of treatments and each treatment can cost several thousands dollars.
Why does laser resurfacing work?
As we age, collagen and elastin synthesis in the skin decreases, causing wrinkles and sagging. Laser resurfacing works by injuring the skin with heat, causing the skin to release its healing properties: collagen and elastin. This process is also called thermal stimulation. The release of collagen and elastin results in more youthful looking skin.

Cellulite Treatments By Sia has recently secured the very latest in international, clinically proven skin firming technology. This patented technology works to firm the skin from the dermis up without the pain, cost or recovery time associated with laser resurfacing.
It does this by creating thermal stimulation through the use of radio frequency and magnetic pulsing. Magnetic pulses stimulate circulation to the treated area, while prompting the propagation of fibroblasts, which are the skin’s collagen and elastin producing cells. The radio frequency causes thermal stimulation in the dermis, which increases collagen and elastin synthesis.
