// What are Laser Facials exactly?
You may see them advertised is various places, like shopping centres but there is a huge difference between one you may receive while you're grabbing a new pair of shoes, and one you receive from a highly regarded and extensively trained guru like our go-to guy for all things cosmetic medicine - Dr Neal Hamilton.
Dr Neal Hamilton from Concept Cosmetic Medicine explains exactly what they are, the benefits and most importantly the difference between the machines used at a beautician opposed to those used in a clinic.
Here's Dr Neal . . .

Laser Facials - Feel OK, Do Fantastic.
“We are talking medical grade skin maintenance with a discussion of “Laser Facials”.
Like anti-wrinkle injections, they can be done just when you want a “buff and polish”. They also can be part of a regular maintenance regime every 6-12 weeks, often in conjunction with a low dose, anti-wrinkle injection top up.
The term “Laser Facial” is a generic one and can mean different things to different practitioners, and different clinics.
Here at Concept Cosmetic Medicine, we use the term “Laser Facial” to describe a process that has:
- NO PAIN
- NO DOWNTIME
- WALK-IN, WALK-OUT
- LOW COST
"So our skin looks the same or better in 10 years time".
It's also ok to do in parallel with TRADITIONAL FACIALS which feel so good - Albeit at different times.
All 3 Skin layers – Epidermis, Dermis and Subcutis are treated with various laser and topical treatments. By doing this, people not only feel a “wow” that lasts for weeks/months after, but little by little changes the architecture of the skin to be more youthful.
The regular use of “Laser Facials” also allows to go on regular ‘Blemish Hunts’ where a ‘real life photoshopping’ of capillaries, pigments and barnacles means they don’t ever get out of control.
