There is often some confusion about skin rejuvenation, and a lot is due to the multiple names used for the procedure; it is often referred to as laser skin resurfacing, a skin peel, or Laser360.
Despite the numerous terminologies, they achieve the same result: younger, tighter, and softer skin that is free from wrinkles, age spots, and acne scarring.
Usually, skin rejuvenation is an intrusive cosmetic procedure that requires extended recovery time. The procedure is also not appropriate for many skin types or skin conditions.
Our pick is the laser 360 treatment, which is a new way to regain younger, tighter skin without extended recovery time or pain. As it is still a cosmetic procedure, it is essential you learn about the treatment so you fully understand the process and if it will benefit you before scheduling.
What Is Laser 360 Skin Rejuvenation?
Laser 360 Skin Rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure that treats problem areas such as discolouration, fine lines, and wrinkles from within to perfect the appearance of the skin.
By combining three technologies – AFT pulsing light, Accent ultra-radio frequency and iPixel – Laser360 can rejuvenate your skin in multiple pain-free, timely treatment sessions with your cosmetic surgeon.
- AFT pulsing light evens out discolouration within the skin through the reduction of blood vessels within the area. The light corrects the appearance of blemishes, discolouration and redness.
- Accent ultra-radio is used to tighten the skin within the area, which is beneficial for the treating and removal of fine lines and wrinkles.
- iPixel focuses on the tones and texture of your skin. Collagen improves the texture of our skin and smooths out lines and wrinkles that appear as we age. The iPixel stimulates the formation and growth of collagen.
These technologies are combined to create a laser that is tailored to your specific needs and skin type to correct problem areas. The handheld laser is placed against the skin to rebuild and rejuvenate your skin, generating perfection from the inside out.
Unlike other skin rejuvenating treatments, the Laser360 is non-invasive. Rather than damaging the surface layers of skin cells to create a youthful complexion, Laser360’s purpose is to fix the issue from the inside out. Laser technology tightens the skin and promotes the growth of collagen, without damaging layers of skin cells.
Laser 360 treatment is available in multiple areas; it is designed to be used on the delicate and sensitive skin on our faces, neck, and chest. Treatable areas include:
- Under eyes
- Around the mouth
- Upper Lip
The final results of the treatment, including younger-looking skin, can be seen within 6o days from the start of the treatment process, with no required recovery time.

Is Laser 360 Right for You?
Laser 360 skin rejuvenation treatments are great for those who need more than makeup and oils to fix those problem areas and want to enhance their skin’s appearance without the pain of invasive cosmetic surgery.
Laser 360 is tailored to suit your needs and fix the areas that you feel need a touch-up. After a consultation session with a cosmetic surgeon, you will be able to identify how many sessions you will need to have a younger, glowing complexion.
It is important that you are open and honest with your cosmetic surgeon to gain the best results and to avoid any risks. Any medical conditions or medications should be discussed in the consultation session. Achieving a young, soft, wrinkle-free complexion no longer has to be a long and painful process.
