In this article in order to justify our mission statement above, and to provide you with an understanding of the services we offer we will focus on our laser treatment for face care. We will begin by reviewing a few of our most popular laser treatments and then afterwards focus on the many skin blemishes and issues we can help you resolve.




Our Treatment Selection


Below you will find a combined list of both the problem areas and the various laser treatments that are offered here at NuSkinnovation, it is important to note here that although these laser treatments are effective for face care they can also be easily applied to other parts of the body. In this section we will provide a brief explanation of these procedures and their benefits, while also providing suggestions of which treatments could work for the common problem areas listed below.


2D Skin Resurfacing


This procedure aims to improve the texture, tone, and appearance of the skin by removing the damaged outer layers and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. This form of laser treatment utilises a laser system known as the Fotona 4D Timewalker system which makes use of a two-wavelength laser to ensure precision and control.


4D Lunchtime Facelift


This procedure also makes use of the aforementioned two-wavelength laser system. This laser treatment is used to achieve a lunchtime facelift in four simple and easy steps; SmoothLiftin, FRAC3, PIANO and SupErficial. More information about each of these steps can be found under the procedure tab on our website. Each step targets a different layer and component of your skin and has a specific role to play in the rejuvenating and revitalising process.


Active Acne


For active acne we generally recommend a procedure that makes use of the Fotona StarWalker laser.. This procedure focuses on reducing acne inflammation by targeting and removing overactive sebaceous glands that produce excess oil and bacteria, as well as improving and diminishing the appearance of acne scars and potential scarring.


Acne Scarring


For teenagers and adults alike, acne scarring can be a significant concern and can be the root of a lot of insecurities. Several of our laser treatment for face care utilise an ablative laser that vaporises and alleviates the affected area. The ablative laser can actually trigger your skin’s natural healing process to ensure proper regrowth and rejuvenation of the previously scarred areas. As the skin begins to repair and rebuild itself, the laser treatment actually reduces potential scarring and produces smoother skin texture in place of any rough texture and reduces any discoloration that occurred from the acne scarring.


Cherry Angioma


A cherry angioma can be defined as a benign skin growth that is made up of blood vessels and generally appears as a skin blemish that is red in colour. They are found all over the body, and the face is no exception to this. Although it is benign and will generally not affect your health, it can impact your self-image and, in those cases, we can help you remove them.


We have specific laser treatments for face and body care that target cherry angiomas. These laser treatments involve a focused beam of light energy that targets the affected blood vessels and removes them, resulting in the cherry angioma shrinking and eventually disappearing.




Diffused Redness


This laser treatment for face care focuses on reducing the appearance of redness of the skin, this can be caused by an increased blood flow in the superficial capillaries or due to dilated or broken blood vessels near the surface of the skin. This laser treatment utilises non-invasive procedures like IPL (Intense Pulse Light) systems that can help accurately remove the affected blood vessels.


Enlarged Pores


There are various laser treatments for face care options that accurately remedy enlarged pores, here at NuSkinnovation, among other options, we make use of laser therapy to help stimulate collagen production and reduce pore size.


Fine Lines and Wrinkles


Wrinkles and face lines are some of the most popular skin blemishes our clients want targeted and we have various laser methods to help counteract these signs of ageing. Depending on your technician’s advice, they may suggest either the Fotona StarWalker or Fotona TimeWalker 4D. These treatments help with skin rejuvenation as the lasers are used to warm the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production, which in turn improves the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage and other skin conditions.




Some of our laser treatment for the face care systems like the IPL can be used to target and break down any unwanted freckles by using short pulses of light to target the pigment within the freckles.




A haemangioma is a benign tumour that occurs due to the abnormal growth of blood vessels in the skin or internal organs. We have a laser treatment for face care that helps the affected area concerned. We use lasers to slowly shrink and collapse the haemangioma, which results in them eventually fading and disappearing overtime.


LipLase (Lip Plumping)


Our LipLase consists of two steps, utilising both the Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers. This laser treatment for face care has the end goal of helping you achieve more plump and alluring lips, with enhanced volume and contour.




This is also known as chloasma and is a form of hyperpigmentation that mostly appears on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, and upper lips.


One of the most common characteristics of Melasma is that one side looks exactly the same as the other and will be duplication of a pattern in most cases – it has a mirroring/butterfly effect. Melasma happens because of an overproduction of melanin. The colour of skin is composed of melanin (eumelanin and pheomelanin).


We have a laser treatment for face care that can be used to treat the pigmentation. The laser targets the pigment in the skin and breaks it down into smaller fragments, which are then absorbed and removed from the skin and body.


Nevus Of Ota


These are a type of birthmark that have a distinct bluish-grey or brown colour, most commonly occurring around or near the eyes. Our laser treatment for face involves the use of a high-energy laser that targets the pigmented skin cells within the specified and affected areas and results in the breakdown and absorption of said affected cells.


Poikiloderma Of Civatte


This is a skin condition that is most commonly characterised by patchy and discoloured skin that occurs on the sides of the neck and face. Here we can use a laser treatment for face care like the Fotona laser system to target and remove these damaged and discoloured skin cells. The laser utilises a beam of light energy that is absorbed by the skin pigment, resulting in the breakdown and later elimination of said affected cells.


Pigmented Lesions


These are simply areas of skin that have become discoloured over time due to an increase in the amount of pigment cells within a confined area. They can appear in various sizes, colours or shapes.


Using an effective laser treatment for face, we can use the light from the laser to target the pigment within the affected areas and break them down into smaller fragments that are later absorbed and removed from the body.


Port Wine Stains


These are birthmarks that appear as pink, red, or purple patches of skin and can appear anywhere on the body. Using a laser treatment that delivers an intense beam of light to those areas of skin in question can actually target the blood vessels that have caused the discolouration, which later break down and disappear.




This is a chronic skin condition that causes redness, inflammation, and bumps on the face which typically occur on the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. utilising an IPL as a non-invasive form of treatment we can target the damaged blood vessels that lie just beneath the skin that have caused the redness and inflammation.


Venous Lakes


Venous lakes are those bluish or purplish spots that often appear on the lower lip, earlobes, or other areas of the face and neck where there is constant sun exposure. Here we use a laser treatment that works through the emission of focused beams of high-intensity light energy with the sole purpose of targeting the affected blood vessels, with the goal of causing them to collapse and seal shut and heal naturally over time.
