I have been in denial over the past few months about the fact I am now a “grown up”. Along with the mountain on responsibilities I have to accept (being in charge of my own bed time with Netflix and YouTube existing is a terrible idea) I now have to face facts and accept my skin isn't what it used to be. Fine lines are large pores are have somehow snuck up on me so when I had the opportunity to receive a complimentary Facial Rejuvenation treatment at the Laser Clinic Australia upon my recent visit to the Sunshine Coast I jumped on it.
The treatment combines fractional radio frequency to stimulate the production of new collagen fibres and elastin, with dermal stamping to encourage the skin to repair itself resulting in healthier looking skin!
My main concern before this treatment was the whole idea sounded painful to me, so the first thing I want to inform you all on my experience is that it wasn't! There were some slight prick feelings on my forehead and cheekbones but other than that it felt like someone was repeatedly poking me in the face with the fine tip pen. Now on to the treatment.
First off a numbing cream is applied all over your face, which took about half an hour to work. Also something to note, it took about 2 hours for the numbing cream to wear off. This can make eating and a little strange! Once the numbing cream has set in the Fractional RF and dermal stamping takes place using a little handheld device moved over the skin.
There is no bleeding with this treatment and only signs I had anything done are little imprints from the device and some redness, both of which go away after an hour or two. Once the redness was gone, my skin looked pretty much the same. It was the next day when the magic really happened.
Once I woke up and cleansed my face I noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin. Before the treatment my skin had been quite dull and kind of rough in texture, but now it felt so incredibly soft and gained a healthy colour to it. My pores and fine lines looked less obvious as well but it was the texture and colour that really blew me away.
It’s recommended you receive 4-6 treatments to see maximum results; I only had the one but am sure I would have seen great results with my pores and fine lines if I had continued! Even though I only had the one treatment I am very happy with the results.

The combination of cosmedical peels and fractional radio frequency treatments can help reduce the appearance of the visible signs of ageing which results in a smoother and rejuvenated complexion. After treatment, circulation is greatly boosted by increasing blood-vessel formation, so skin looks and feels healthier.
