The China Doll is a unique laser skin rejuvenation treatment which is inspired by its Asian background that targets acne, black heads, open pores, oiliness, mottled complexions and collagen production to reduce wrinkles, brighten and tighten the skin. This treatment works by applying medical grade carbon to the skin, then treating with the nano-second lightning fast Q switched Nd Yag Laser to stimulate and clean the pores, whilst promoting the growth of collagen.
The China Doll Laser Facial is suitable for men and women of all ages and assists people with pigmentation, acne, wrinkles, dull or poor skin tone, large pores and helps to lessen the premature signs of ageing.
The treatment has been described at feeling warm or prickly, but not painful, and assists in leaving the skin looking clear and glowing. A minor ‘sonic’ boom is heard as the carbon particles are targeted by the laser and the light energy is absorbed by the carbon particles.
It is non-invasive and you can return to normal activities straight after your treatment. You will need to ensure that you use SPF 30+ sunblock for any outdoor activities.
As each patient is different it is not possible to completely predict how many treatments you will need, but on average you may need four to six treatments to achieve ideal results anywhere from one week to one month apart. After your initial consultation our therapists will advise you of the recommended number of treatments required.
The skin will be visibly tighter, hydrated and radiant – just like a China Doll. A ‘warmth’ in the skin may occur for a few days post treatment. This is a positive outcome as the skin has been rejuvenated in the deeper layers of the skin as well as the tightening effect on the surface. Results can be improved by minimal sun exposure, not smoking and keeping stress to a minimum. The longevity of the effects from the treatment is determined by the skin condition, skin type and your lifestyle.
