Acne Scarring Treatments
Laser Treatments for Acne Scarring Reduction
We offer a range of solutions to combat persistent acne with proven medical options, including laser acne treatments. Our staff consists of a team of fully trained medical professionals who have had many years’ experience in improving the appearance of acne scarred skin.
Acne can affect all skin types and all ages. It may be caused by a combination of genetics, hormone changes, and health and environmental factors.
Acne can form when:
- Androgen (male) hormones stimulate excess sebum (or oil) production
- Excess oil, dry skin and debris combine and become trapped in the pore
Acne bacteria lives naturally on healthy skin but proliferates when pores become blocked. The damage caused by this bacteria, and the associated inflammation, can make the tissues more susceptible to other bacteria (such as Staphylococcus aureus).
There are many different types of acne scars and a number of factors cause them. The most common acne scars are boxcar scars (shallow to medium depressed scars with well-defined edges commonly located on the cheeks and temples), ice pick scars (deep and narrow scars extending into the skin’s lower layers), rolling atrophic scars (depressions on the skin), and mixed scars (combination of the above) and treatments vary depending on their depth and severity.
Get Rid of Ugly Toe Nails Without Medication or Painful Surgery
100% Safe Revolutionary Fungal Laser Treatment with No Side-Effects
If you’re embarrassed by thickened, discoloured, yellowing or crumbling toenails, you’re most likely suffering from onychomycosis, also called toenail fungus. It’s a condition which affects around 6-14% of adults and is common across all age groups.
Fungal toenail infections occur when microscopic fungi enter the nail, spreading into the nail plate and the surrounding skin, through the warm and moist environment in socks and shoes.
Symptoms commonly appear in the form of yellowing, roughness, thickening or crumbling of the nails. You may also find marks or streaks on the side of the nail. The discolouration may be on the surface or underneath the nail.
Left untreated, your toenail not only looks unsightly, the infection can easily spread to your other toenails or fingernails and even cause a tinea infection in the skin between your toes. The affected toe can become thickened, malodorous, separated from the nail bed and have a deformed appearance. The thickened, crumbly nail often becomes difficult to trim and may cause some discomfort when wearing enclosed shoes.
Fungal nail treatments are recommended at 4 weekly intervals for no more than 4-6 treatments to clear the infection. It is painless with no downtime and no aftercare needed.
Age Spot Removal
Age spots (also known as Liver Spots, sun spots or Solar Lentigo) become an unwanted consequence of sun exposure and the skin’s natural ageing process. Presenting as areas of uneven skin tone or pigmentation, age spots result when excess melanin (skin pigment) has been stimulated.
How do age spots form?
The main factors that contribute to age spots include:
- Sun damage/ exposure
Age spots are not just restricted to the facial area and are commonly present on the shoulders, neck, décolletage, backs of the hands or any sun-exposed areas.
Age Spots Treatment Solutions
We provide highly effective procedures that can address and treat all types of age spots on all areas of the body to provide long-lasting and targeted results. All age spot removal treatments are performed by paramedical-trained skin clinicians or registered nurses.
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
LLLT gently assists in the reduction and formation of age spots without heat or discomfort. Emitting a gentle beam to areas affected by age spots, LLLT works within the skin to balance over-active melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) and sun-damaged cells.

Effective Carbon Laser Peels for Flawless Skin
What is a Carbon Laser Peel?
The Carbon Laser Peel also known as the ‘China Doll Peel’ (named for its porcelain doll like finish to the skin) is an innovative laser resurfacing facial peel treatment that utilises focused light beams to treat skin imperfections. The Carbon Laser Peel works to restore skin balance whilst promoting a fresh and even glow. As the treated skin regenerates, the appearance of uneven spots and pigment are visibly clearer and more uniform in texture.
What Does Carbon Laser Peel Treat?
A Carbon Laser facial peel is used to treat uneven skin tone, congested skin and pigmentation. These problem can be caused from from sun damage. inflammation, hormonal changes, acne and poor reactions to some medications.
At Second Thoughts, we provide a selection of treatments that focus on these skin concerns. The Carbon Laser Peel is an innovative treatment procedure.
How Does the Treatment Work?
The Carbon Laser Peel treatment works by applying a thin layer of carbon to the skin’s surface. Once evenly distributed, a focused light beam is emitted for a precise and targeted area.
The carbon particles actively absorb the light before a vacuum suction gently removes them, along with damaged cells found in the upper layers of the skin.
The simultaneous generation of thermal energy stimulates the synthesis of fresh collagen and the promotion of a healthy-looking complexion*. Skin structure is visibly strengthened while opened pores are purified and cleared*.
There is no downtime following a Carbon Laser facial peel, with results appearing even following one session. A course of treatments is recommended depending on your skin condition and desired results.
Remove Your Unwanted Tattoos Today
Professional Laser Tattoo Removal with Medical-Grade Lasers
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics offer medical-grade Q switch Laser Tattoo Removal in Perth. We have invested in the latest technology – ND: YAG Q switched
Laser machines – to ensure our clients see effective results in a safe and relatively pain-free manner.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Unlike previous methods that involved painful dermabrasion (scraping off the top layer of skin), cryosurgery (freezing the skin then peeling away layers of the tattoo) or excision (cutting the tattoo out), the process is completely non-abrasive and won’t cause scarring.
Our medical-grade laser machine works by producing short pulses of intense light that target the tattoo. These pulses pass straight through to the pigment, leaving the top layers of skin unharmed. When the light is absorbed, the ink molecules are broken down, allowing them to fragment into small particles and be absorbed into the bloodstream. The body then safely and naturally flushes these out of your system, causing the ink to disappear.
The procedure has been proven to be both safe and effective, with researchers having determined which wavelengths of light are most effective at removing ink without damaging surrounding skin. Furthermore, our treatment is available at an affordable cost.
Tattoos are an increasingly popular method of body art, so it’s no surprise that a sizeable percentage of the world’s population is adorned with ink. Tattooing has been practised for centuries in many cultures and can represent a number of meanings for the owner of the tattoo, including having religious, spiritual, and artistic implications. Unfortunately, there are some who later regret their body art. What seemed like a good idea at the time can cause major problems later in life, including psychological distress. For others, it can result in difficulty in securing employment or going for a promotion.
Many have lived with these regretted tattoos, wrongly believing them to be permanent. Fortunately, there’s an effective solution available, allowing tattoos to be safely faded and removed using the latest in medical-grade laser technology.
