Adva Laser Treatments: Everything You Need To Know
Your face is on show every single day, and suffering from skin conditions such as acne, uneven skin tone, and noticeable lines and wrinkles can leave you feeling very self-conscious.
Using the Adva Laser (one of only 4 in the UK), we can target many skin conditions and leave you with noticeably rejuvenated skin that could improve your confidence and treat those areas that you are concerned with.
Laser skin treatments can help reduce the appearance of scars and fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne-related inflammation. But, there are some common misconceptions about laser treatments and how they can treat different skin types and tones.
A common misconception is that laser treatments are only safe for light skin tones. While it is true that certain lasers pose a slightly higher risk for cell damage or discolouration in darker skin, there are safe and effective resurfacing options, such as the Adva Laser.
So what is Adva Laser, and how could it help you?
What Is The Adva Laser?
Adva Laser is one of the highest standards of laser treatments available in the aesthetics market. The patented, FDA/CE-approved device uses sophisticated technology to deliver painless rejuvenation.
It’s the world’s only medical, dual laser producing both 589nm and 1319nm wavelengths for a fully customisable treatment that can target the following areas:
- Acne scars
- Skin tone and texture
- Vascular concerns and
- Sun damage
- Reduce wrinkles
- Shrink pore size
- Limit oil production
An Adva Laser treatment will help rejuvenate your skin whilst improving common skin worries and conditions. The cutting-edge laser combines unique dual-wavelength technology to target specific skin concerns without damaging the surrounding tissue. Patients can experience immediate results without any pain and downtime.
What makes this treatment so popular is that it has been developed with all skin types and tones in mind.
It is a particularly effective treatment on darker skin tones, which should be very reassuring as people with darker skin tones have traditionally been more hesitant to undergo a laser skin treatment due to the potential risks of hyperpigmentation, scarring, and other adverse effects.
Understanding Wavelengths in Laser Treatments For Skin
The Adva Laser uses a unique combination of two light lasers, the wavelengths are set at different levels, measured in nanometers. This is so that the wavelengths can target different areas of your skin.
The use of two wavelengths for facial skin treatments allows the laser to treat both superficial depths of your skin while the other wavelength can be used to go deeper.
Adva Lasers uses PulSync technology, and the lasers emit light at different wavelengths to tailor the treatment to your individual needs. Shorter wavelengths, also known as ablative lasers, are used for skin resurfacing. While longer wavelengths, known as non-ablative, are used for collagen stimulation, vascular, and even hair removal.
Adva Laser combines 589 nm of yellow light – which is thought of as the gold standard in treating vascular conditions – with 1319 nm, which is best for collagen production and overall skin health.
What Can I Expect From My Adva Laser Treatment?
The treatment will start with a thorough consultation, this enables your clinician to identify your skin concerns and decide on the best combination of wavelengths to treat them.
Your clinician will use a handheld device to target areas of concern using one or both wavelengths of light, depending on your desired results. The procedure lasts for around 15 to 30 minutes, whilst the light is targeted at your treatment areas.
Your appointment will be relaxing and rejuvenating. It is not painful and will not result in any scarring or discolouration of skin tone, even on darker skin.
Because this is a non-invasive procedure, you won’t experience any downtime. Some patients occasionally have a small amount of redness, but this is usually minimal and quick to clear.
Some conditions that are treated will have immediate results, whilst others may take more than one session. However, your skin care specialist clinician can advise you during your consultation about the effectiveness of the treatment for your condition.
Our patients at Elite Aesthetics love this procedure because of the ability to personalise the treatment and effectively treat skin care concerns.
Are There Downsides To Adva Laser Treatments?
There are no real downsides to the Adva Laser treatment. There are minimal side effects, and the results are generally regarded as outstanding. Most patients report huge improvements that are noticeable and long-lasting.
Unlike other lasers, the Adva Laser is suitable for all skin tones, and whilst many other lasers target melanin, the Adva Laser wavelengths target water in the cells.
How Much Does Adva Laser Treatment Cost?
This treatment is completely bespoke, and because of its ability to give such personalisation, providing a general cost can be difficult.
Your unique consultation will help define what you need and how many treatments you should have. The most effective is a full course, roughly 4 weeks apart.
We’re so excited about the addition of the Adva Laser to our services at Elite Aesthetics. It means we can offer fast, pain-free solutions to many skin concerns, some even at the same time.
