Laser Skin Rejuvenation

We lose 2% of our collagen every year from the age of 20.  Regular laser treatments can halt or even reverse this process.


Skin Integrity has a Fotona Dynamis SP Laser which is a powerful, TGA approved, medical grade laser. Although there are currently no restrictions on who can operate a laser in NSW, legislation currently being formulated recommends category 3 laser treatments (skin resurfacing and tattoo removal) are only performed by a Medical Practitioner or a suitably qualified cinician under the supervision of a Medical Practitioner.  

Dr Wassall is currently the only Medical Practitioner on the Central Coast offering laser skin rejuvenation treatments.  Each client requires a consultation and assessment with Dr Wassall to assess suitability for laser therapy and to formulate a treatment plan.  

Prices for laser rejuvenation start from $275 for facial treatments.  

The Fotona Dynamis SP is actually two lasers in one as it has two different hand pieces which can be used alone or in a variety of combinations to allow the clinician to tailor a program specific for your skin rejuvenation needs. The laser can treat fine lines and wrinkles, surface pigmentation and also help tighten skin and prevent skin ageing by contracting and stimulating collagen growth. 


Fractional Ablative Therapy

Fractional ablative therapy involves firing thousands of tiny channels into the skin. These microscopic wounds stimulate a natural healing response so that the area will be replaced with new, tighter and healthier tissue. The strength of the treatment can be adjusted to create a balance between downtime and effectiveness. The aim is to produce a cleaner, tighter and fresher complexion with less surface wrinkles. Individual areas such as lines around lips (smokers lines) or eyes (crows feet) can be treated separately or treated more aggressively as part of an overall facial rejuvenation package. Between one and 4 treatments are usually required depending on the condition of the skin and the strength of each treatment.

Laser Resurfacing and Laser Peels

For a more dramatic result specific areas such as lines around the mouth or eyes can be resurfaced.  The depth of penetration can be precisely controlled depending on the needs of the patient.  By adjusting the laser settings a variable amount of heat can be deposited into the resurfaced area leading to collagen contraction and stimulating new collagen growth.  Dramatic results can be achieved by combining full face fractional ablative therapy with laser resurfacing of specific troublesome areas.

A full face laser peel can be performed to improve surface skin imperfections and restore a more even skin tone and texture.  Laser peels are usually performed in combination with other modalities such as fractional resurfacing and skin tightening to achieve more dramatic results.


Laser Toning & Tightening
Skin toning and tightening is a non-ablative treatment with minimal downtime designed to treat the deeper layers of the skin.  By heating the dermis collagen growth is stimulated and existing collagen is remodelled.  This treatment is well tolerated and no specific preparation or anaesthetic cream is required.  A series of up to 6 treatments every 2 to 4 weeks can result in an improvement in skin laxity, skin texture and tone around the jowls, midface and neck.


Smooth Lifting
The Fotona laser has a special treatment setting called smooth mode.  This treatment mode can be used to heat and tighten the skin on the inside of the mouth which helps soften the nasolabial fold as well as improving fine lines around the mouth.  When used in isolation or combined with laser toning and tightening, a series of treatments can lead to significant improvements in skin laxity, skin thickness and turgor in the mid and lower face.  This treatment is an alternative to facelift surgery for clients with mild to moderate lower facial skin laxity.  A series of 6 treatments 4 weeks apart is recommended.


Combination Treatments
The treatments outlined above can be used individually or, to achieve more dramatic results, a treatment modalities can be combined.  Dr Wassall can assess your suitability for treatment and an individual treatment plan formulated taking into consideration your needs, financial considerations and the amount of downtime you are prepared to tolerate.  Often a series of stronger treatments can be followed by more gentle maintenance treatments to ensure your results continue to improve over time.
