Visit one of the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic’s four locations to take advantage of the most advanced laser photo rejuvenation in Melbourne. Using laser light to improve skin appearance and texture, this exciting and unique laser facial procedure has been designed to treat many different skin conditions.
Laser rejuvenation for the skin is used for:
Does your skin look older and a little bit more tired every time you look in the mirror? Are the effects of the sun taking their toll? Most of us, at one point or another, have thought about putting a stop to – or at least slowing down – the ageing process and its effect upon our skin. Well, now you can.
Every day, we not only have to contend with the natural ageing process, but also harsh environmental factors that impact upon our skin here in Melbourne. Until recently, most skin rejuvenation treatments involved a lengthy recovery period, unlike laser photo rejuvenation which is a sophisticated, yet simple, aesthetic procedure.
Developed by Dr Patrick Bitter Jr, this revolutionary anti aging therapy involves a series of beams of light being pulsed onto the facial area.
Laser photo skin therapy can improve the signs of photoaging and rosacea, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, telangiectasias and irregular pigmentation – resulting in younger and more youthful skin. The benefits are consistent, with visible improvement in the skin as well as minimal discomfort and recovery time.
Photo rejuvenation is simply sophisticated beauty that is rediscovered in you.
An intense light is emitted in a series of gentle pulses over the area of treatment. It is necessary to undertake a series of laser facial sessions to improve the appearance of sun damaged and ageing skin.
Treatments can be performed on any part of the skin, but they are especially effective on the face, neck, chest and hands.
With laser skin rejuvenation, the Victoria Laser & Skin Clinic is able to offer effective pigmentation removal, erythema treatment, treatment for rosacea, and treatment for sunspots, redness and some birthmarks, such as port wine stains.
There are substantial visible improvements seen in the skin, with minimal downtime compared to other methods such as laser skin resurfacing. In most cases, patients are able to return to normal activity immediately. Treatments are safe with a minimal risk of scarring or adverse effects. The whole face can be treated with a laser facial within 40 minutes for most patients.
Depending on the skin concern, as little as 1 to 2 sessions are required, but for some conditions, 4 to 6 treatments are recommended. A follow up treatment in 2 or more years may be required for some conditions.
Most people describe the laser skin rejuvenation treatment as feeling like an elastic band flicking on the skin. After the laser facial treatment, the area may feel like sunburn for several hours. Patients do have the option of having a topical anaesthetic applied to the area before treatment to help eliminate any discomfort.
Most side effects are mild and of short duration. There may be slight redness and/or crusting immediately following treatment, lasting less than 24 hours in most people. On rare occasions, it may last up to several days.

All patients of laser photo rejuvenation in our Melbourne clinics must have a consultation prior to the procedure. They must complete a general medical questionnaire on the nature of their skin and their anti aging needs. At the time of the first consultation, patients will be tested to properly evaluate the correct settings for their skin condition and skin type. These parameters will then be stored in a database and in the patient’s chart for future reference.
If needed, apply ice to the face after laser facial treatment, and wash with a gentle cleanser using cool water. Afterwards, apply moisturiser and avoid the sun as much as you can. If you do venture out into the sun, make sure you wear a hat and apply sunblock with an SPF of 30+ on an hourly basis.
When following the treatment guidelines, patients at our laser skin clinics experience consistent visible improvement to their complexions which, to date, has proved to be long-lasting. Laser anti aging treatments have great appeal because of the dramatic visual improvement to the skin, the simple nature of the treatment and, most importantly, the complete absence of recovery time. Patients are able to return immediately to normal activity, unlike other treatments that require downtime such as laser skin resurfacing.
The following symptoms can be treated effectively using laser photo treatment:
By using laser skin rejuvenation as a form of erythema treatment, patients can expect an average of 50 to 75% reduction after five treatments – especially in the face, neck or chest. Benefits have also continued for up to twelve months following treatments.
Until recently, there has been no effective treatment for facial, neck or chest flushing. Laser facial and photo rejuvenation treatments are extremely effective in reducing the degree of flushing in all patients treated. Most patients report a 75% (or greater) reduction in flushing.
Patients with active inflammatory rosacea generally experience a considerable improvement in their symptoms after undergoing laser treatment for rosacea (after several treatments). Most patients are able to decrease or discontinue treatments for rosacea. Although symptoms may re-occur following treatment, most patients report 60% (or greater) improvement in their rosacea.
Skin that displays fine wrinkling, freckling or irregular pigmentation from chronic sun exposure is visibly improved after a series of anti aging laser skin treatments at our clinics. Fine wrinkles of the face have shown an average improvement of 15 to 25% (or greater) after five laser facial sessions.
These include brown age spots or melasma and coarse or rough skin with large pores. Patients with this skin type generally experience smoother, softer skin with a visible reduction in pore size (an average improvement of 50% or greater) after treatments.
The chest, dorsal, hand, forearm and leg can all be safely rejuvenated using this procedure.
Laser facial treatments are effective in reducing the erythema and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation of acne scarring.
Laser photo treatments offer several advantages over other skin rejuvenation and anti aging modalities such as chemical peeling and laser skin resurfacing. These advantages include:
Photo rejuvenation treatments can be safely used on non-facial skin. This allows us to provide effective neck and chest erythema treatment as well as photoaging of the neck, chest, forearms, shoulders and legs.
