What’s Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel or lasabrasion, is an innovative procedure aimed at rejuvenating the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and other skin imperfections. At Reimagine Clinic, we harness the power of the Candela Gentlemax laser, a leading technology in the industry, to offer our clients unparalleled results.
How It Works
The Candela Gentlemax laser directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This laser technique removes skin layers with precision, stimulating the growth of new collagen fibers. As a result, the new skin that forms is smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking.

The average cost of laser skin resurfacing varies based on the technique and area treated. While insurance often doesn’t cover cosmetic procedures, at Reimagine Clinic, we pride ourselves on offering competitive rates. For detailed pricing information tailored to your needs, we recommend reaching out to our clinic directly.
Upon your visit to Reimagine Clinic, our expert dermatologists will assess your skin’s condition and discuss your desired outcomes. The treatment area is numbed using a local anesthetic, ensuring maximum comfort. The Candela Gentlemax laser is then used to treat the specified areas. Post-procedure, an ointment is applied to the treated areas to facilitate healing. Discover more about our procedure methodologies from this trusted source.

What to Expect
Post-procedure, it’s normal for the treated skin to appear red and feel sensitive. However, with proper aftercare, including applying sun protection and avoiding irritants, your skin will heal beautifully. Over time, the redness will fade, revealing a rejuvenated, youthful complexion. It’s essential to understand the recovery timeline and set realistic expectations, which you can read more about here.
Depending on the specific treatment and desired result, sessions can range from thirty minutes to an hour.
We prioritize patient comfort, providing numbing creams to ensure a painless experience. Post-treatment sensations might resemble a mild sunburn.
Typically, results become noticeable within a week after the treatment, as the old skin sheds and reveals the rejuvenated layer beneath.
Temporary side effects can include redness, swelling, and minor discomfort. Rare side effects may include blistering, scarring, or pigmentation changes.
While many patients notice improvements after just one session, optimal results typically require multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart.
Yes, our candela gentlemax treats all skin types and is known to be the best in treating efficiently all skin colours.
It’s crucial to protect the treated area from direct sunlight, use sunscreen, and follow any post-treatment care instructions provided by your specialist.
Pregnant women, individuals with certain medical conditions, or those on specific medications (like Accutane) may not be suitable candidates. Always consult with a specialist.
Unlike peels or microdermabrasion, which work on the skin’s surface, laser treatments target deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and addressing the root causes of skin issues.
Some results may be visible immediately after the session, but the full effect often becomes apparent after a few weeks as the skin heals and rejuvenates.
The longevity of results varies, but many patients enjoy the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation for several months to years. Maintenance sessions can prolong results.
While commonly used on the face, neck, and hands, the procedure can be performed on most body parts. Consult with a specialist for specific areas of concern.
