How Laser Facials Work
Laser facials utilize an intense beam of bright light energy. This can be used to help jump-start your body’s natural healing system in the skin.
In terms of laser treatments, there are several types:
Ablative Laser Treatments
The first type is Ablative. These lasers break the layers of your skin and eliminate old cells to rejuvenate your skin. This process encourages your body to replace the cells with new and fresh, healthier cells.
The depth and power of the laser will depend on the treatment and the results you want to obtain.
This form of laser treatment may result in the need for some downtime following treatment but usually has stronger results after a single session compared to non-ablative treatments.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
When the laser treatment does not breakdown the surface layer of the skin, this is what we call non-ablative laser treatments.
These use a series of wavelengths and energy to stimulate the production of collagen, which improves your skin’s elasticity and firmness.
The major benefit of this non-invasive procedure is that they require no downtime after sessions. They will, however, take multiple sessions for most people to see strong results.
Fractionated Laser Treatment
Fractionated lasers are an incredibly popular form of treatment and are unique in the way that they work. Fractionated lasers can target tiny, microscopic portions of the skin without the surrounding area being affected.
Fractionated lasers can be ablative or non-ablative.

PicoSure Laser Facials
PicoSure is one of the world leaders in laser skincare treatments and is fast becoming one of the most popular treatments we offer here at Xanadu. This non-invasive treatment provides fast, dramatic results with practically no recovery time, no scars, and minimal redness.
PicoSure doesn’t rely on heat to target those deeper layers of skin. Instead, it uses a system of energy bursts that stimulate protein and collagen production in the face. This results in more elasticity and a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
Most laser treatments that provide the strong results that PicoSure gives require you to take time off work due to the pain and swelling. With PicoSure, the system is gentle and works with your body’s bio-mechanisms. This means little to no side effects. The small amount of swelling will usually last a maximum of 24 hours, but for most people, it will be a lot less than that.
Another huge benefit to the PicoSure system is that the results are permanent. This is incredible compared to the temporary results you get from most of the competition. This means you get more bang for your buck and treatment that provides lasting results for years to come.
Many people avoid laser treatments for the fear of the pain they inflict. This doesn’t need to be a concern with PicoSure, which customers compare to having a rubber band snapped on their skin.
Cutera® Laser Genesis Facials
Another incredible breakthrough laser treatment we offer here at Xanadu is the Cutera® Laser Genesis Facial. This treatment utilizes your skin’s own natural healing process to help reduce the signs of aging that rob us of our confidence.
It works by applying a system of laser pulses to your skin using a medical-grade laser. This provides a safe level of heat that induces the production of collagen. This, in turn, increases your skin’s elasticity and returns it to how it was during your youth.
There is very little downtime or discomfort, which means you can go about your day after a treatment session. There are no unpleasant side effects other than some minor redness that disappears after an hour or two.
