Laser Resurfacing Brisbane

Lasers are powerful anti-aging treatments. They can be used to erase decades of wrinkles, pigmentation and imperfections, or gentle enough to provide collagen regeneration with minimal downtime. They work by emitting laser light that interacts with the skin's surface, causing the upper layers to regenerate.

Cutis Dermatology has over 35 laser and energy devices. Our clinic is the Southern Hemisphere’s hub of laser research and our aesthetic dermatologists hold positions in laser departments in Brisbane’s leading public hospitals.

Superficial Laser Resurfacing

Superficial lasers penetrate the top layer of skin. They can improve the appearance of minor pigmentation, fine lines, enlarged pores and wrinkles. These lasers are excellent maintenance treatments with little or no downtime. They can be applied to the face, neck, chest and hands.

Mid-Level Laser Resurfacing 

Mid-level resurfacing is an excellent treatment for patients in the mid 40s to late 50s. This treatment utilises superficial and deep resurfacing lasers to address pigmentation, wrinkles, scars and skin laxity.  Downtime is less than 6 days. 

Deep Level Laser Resurfacing

Deep laser resurfacing threats to the mid dermal layer of skin. Dermatologists employ ablative erbium and CO2 lasers to erase decades of pigmentation, sun damage, etched wrinkles and scars. Deep resurfacing is performed under sedation in our laser theatres by our experienced aesthetic dermatologists. Epic resurfacing, epic results.

Hybrid Laser Resurfacing

Classed as mid-level laser resurfacing, we combine the power of fractional CO2 with the coverage of Fraxel 1927. This combination dramatically improves skin quality, erasing years of sun damage, pigmentation and wrinkles. The combination of superficial and deeper laser light triggers natural collagen production for firmer, healthier and more radiant skin. Only one treatment is required to rejuvenate skin by up to one decade.

Fraxel Laser Resurfacing

Classed as a superficial to mid-level laser resurfacing treatment, fractional lasers create micro injury to the surface of the skin. Laser light gently removes layers of sun damaged skin and pigment to reveal brighter, healthier skin. 

Fraxel laser also reduces wrinkles, scars and enlarged pores with minimal downtime. Best used on lighter skin types, it requires 2-3 sessions for best results. 

Pico Lasers

Pico lasers are ideally suited for darker skin types or for those who don’t have downtime. Pico fractional lasers address pigment, fine lines and open pores. The clinic has two of the latest devices- the Picoway and Picosure Pro. A series of 2 - 4 sessions provide the best results. Pico lasers are also gentle enough for skin maintenance treatments and general toning.

Lasers offer precise tunable resurfacing for every skin type & skin condition

We maintain a huge laser portfolio because we do not compromise on treatments. Each laser machine is a specific tool that delivers optimal results for a particular concern. For example, Pico lasers are best for darker skin types, whilst fractional non-ablative lasers are best for lighter skin types. We constantly upgrade our devices every month. This ensures patients are getting the best treatments possible. 

CO2 Laser Resurfacing 

Classed as a deep level resurfacer, this laser is the ultimate treatment for deeply etched lines, wrinkles and decades of UV damage. It is ideal for smoker’s lines, as well as marked laxity around the eyes, mouth and jowls. One session can rejuvenate skin by up to two decades. This laser is performed by our dermatologists in an operating theatre. Big downtime, with bigger results.

By combining &\and selecting different lasers we can address both superficial and deep skin pathology for a full scar remodelling/resurfacing treatment. This is why Cutis Dermatology has over 30 devices, this way each treatment is tailored for your concerns.

Is laser resurfacing permanent?

No, but lasers can take your skin back in time - from a few years, all the way back to two decades. From there, your skin will naturally age. The use of good skin care and regular treatments such as chemical peels and microneedling will preserve the results for years to come.
