A consultation is critical for a proper assessment of your needs or requirements. Our practitioners will be able to give you an exact cost prior to you proceeding with any treatment. The duration of the consultation usually ranges from 30 to 60 minutes (depending on the type of consultation).

If you would like one of our practitioners to perform a preliminary assessment online prior to a consultation, please send photos of the area to be treated to [email protected]. It is possible for us to then suggest appropriate treatments for your concern or assess your suitability for the treatment.

Laser resurfacing treatments with carbon dioxide and erbium lasers

Laser resurfacing is primarily for the treatment of skin texture, wrinkles, and to firm the skin. It is generally done with our carbon dioxide laser or erbium laser or both these lasers together in the same session. Treatments can be tailored to your requirements and performed at high or low levels.

HIGH-level treatment – involves using the carbon dioxide and erbium laser in a non-fractional manner. Several passes are performed to achieve a significant improvement in sun damage, scarring, skin laxity and overall skin quality in one treatment. Intravenous sedation / general anaesthetic and local anaesthetic infiltration of the face are used. Off-face areas cannot be treated at this high level. Significant downtime is required (usually 14 days at home), and redness of the treated skin can persist for around 2 months or more. Transport is provided for you to and from home. *Anaesthetic fee not charged if anaesthetist not used. Although it is possible to do these procedures without intravenous sedation or anaesthetic, comfort levels are much higher with intravenous sedation or anaesthetic – especially for full face or larger treatments.
Treatment area Price
Full face 4500 + 2.5hrs anaesthetic fee* (1250) = total 5750
Upper and lower eyelids, around the eyes, and around the mouth (upper/lower lip /chin) 2450 + 1hr anaesthetic fee* (500) = total 2950
Upper and lower eyelids, around the eyes 1750 + 1hr anaesthetic fee* (500) = total 2250
Lower eyelids only 875 + 1hr anaesthetic fee* (500) = total 1375
Around mouth 1500 + 1hr anaesthetic fee* (500) = 2000
Upper lip only 880 + 1hr anaesthetic fee* (500) = total 1380

Active Fx fractional CO2 for light resurfacing OR Deep Fx Fractional CO2 for acne scarring or burn scars

Treatment performed by doctors – involves using the carbon dioxide in a fractional manner. Usually, several treatments are required for optimal results. Topical local anaesthetic cream/gel is used prior to laser treatment. Downtime required varies from 3 to 7 days depending on the settings used.

Treatment area Price
Full face 1850
Lower eyelid only 600
Forehead/Temples only 950
Chin only 450
