Scars caused by surgery or traumatic injury, as well as, uneven roughened skin texture caused by aging, hormones, sun damage and acne, are usually permanent and can cause a great deal of embarrassment, with some people going to great lengths to cover them up. The good news is we offer a number of treatments here at The Laser Beautique which can dramatically improve the appearance of scars, and roughed uneven skin texture.
The Harmony iPixel is the latest technology in skin resurfacing and scar revision, and has given us a set of procedures that repair skin the face, hands, neck, décolleté, arms, hands or skin tags by removing photo-damaged skin pigmentations and superficial blood vessels. This technology is ideal for treating mature skin, skin with uneven tone and texture as well as improving the appearance of scars.
The iPixel is the next generation of laser skin resurfacing technology that improves:
|· Fine lines||· Skin tone|
|· Brown spots||· Pore appearance|
|· Acne scars||· Surgical and traumatic scars|
|· Traumatic Scars||· C-Section scars|
|· Keloid Scars||· Hypertrophic Scars|
The Harmony iPixel laser treatment can be uncomfortable and a topical anaesthetic cream can therefore be applied 60 minutes prior and/or two paracetamol taken 30 minutes prior. Most commonly, clients feel some slight warmth with the pulse of the laser and may experience a sunburn-like sensation afterward (3-4 hours) that is easily neutralised with a gentle moisturiser.
The Harmony laser offers treatments for all of the above mentioned skin concerns. The Harmony XL is at the forefront of laser and light technology- capable of erasing skin imperfections, turning back the clock and providing safe and dramatic results. The different hand pieces allow for a tailor-made treatment program to be designed to cater to your specific skin concerns.

On average, there are about 5-7 days of downtime associated with this treatment. Some redness usually appears immediately following the procedure. This usually subsides within a few hours. It is recommended to apply ice-packs to the treated area immediately and for the rest
of the day.
The treated skin will be fragile for the first 3-4 days. Special care needs to be taken when cleansing the face during this time. Avoid using facial scrubs, washcloths or buff puffs.
The treated skin will look better within days following the treatment and results should steadily improve over the next few months.
It is imperative to use a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every day to prevent further damage. Your consulting Aesthetician can give you advice and start you on a suitable skin care regime for your skin type and requirements.
