The Aesthetic Lounge Difference
At The Aesthetic Lounge we do things differently, because we understand one crucial foundation of achieving results; if you fail to prepare – be prepared to fail.
To us, skin preparation is the most important step to rapidly achieve your skin goals. Our results are testament to this. Strengthening your skin with the right prescribed skincare and Advanced Treatments, will ensure it reaches its maximum potential and visibly transform into the skin you’ve always dreamt of.
Resurfacing Laser Treatment For Acne Scars
You’ve put up with those wrinkles, spots and blemishes for long enough. After trying every product on the market to little avail, you recognise the need to change your approach. It’s not enough to trust in the marketing campaigns of major brands, or in the hit and miss treatments of franchise salons. This time something new is required that can actually do something about your acne scars.
Resurfacing Laser Treatment for Acne Scars
Resurfacing laser treatment for acne scars is the solution that so many people find after spending countless amounts of dollars on empty promises. Fortunately for those looking for laser treatment in Melbourne, a skin care clinic exists that delivers the highest standard of treatment available in a comfortable and welcoming setting.
Here at The Aesthetic Lounge, we strive to achieve more than any other salon or clinic. As a boutique skin clinic, we have the luxury of tailoring our services as we see fit, which affords us the possibility of continually bringing the very best of treatments to our clients.
All of our therapists are highly qualified in skincare, laser and light based therapies and skin science. Furthermore, we diligently research the skincare products that we make available to our clients. The difference is a passion and unrivalled commitment to active prescriptive cosmeceutical grade products as opposed to cosmetics.
Bringing Out the Best With Laser Skin Resurfacing For Acne Scars
Anyone that went through the pain of acne in their youth or into adulthood will appreciate the struggle to finally look in the mirror and see clear skin. However, for many people, they are continually reminded of the skin they had as a result of the scars that remain. Fortunately, laser skin resurfacing works on acne scars and can bring about a radiant new look.
Makeup can only achieve so much in terms of covering up acne scars as well as surgical scars. The good news is that with a laser treatment, these scars can be minimised and reduced so that they become less visible. Amazingly the procedure is a quick one that will not require an overnight stay and best of all; the results are permanent.
It is also possible to use fractional laser resurfacing to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The process promotes the production of collagen, which returns the tight elastic texture so commonly associated with youth to the areas treated.
Enlarged pores are quite common to those that suffered from acne in the past. It is possible to reduce the size of pores through the use of lasers. Our therapists have the knowledge, experience and expertise to tailor your treatment so that you get the results that you want. We invest in the best of technology and update our skillsets every year to ensure you the best possible outcome.

What Is Fractional Laser?
Fractional Laser utilises a non-ablative wavelength to create a network of thousands of microscopic thermal columns, deep within the skin. As a consequence, your skin’s repair processes are stimulated, improving overall texture, tone, fine lines and wrinkles, open pores, stretchmarks, acne and surgical scars. Unlike ablative lasers or fraxel, which produce prolonged downtime and increase the risks of long term complications, our non-ablative fractionated laser delivers safe and effective skin resurfacing for long term results on all skin colours and body areas.
Smooth the texture and tone of prematurely ageing skin. Full face treatments produce the best results due to “bulk heating”, where a large treatment area produces more heat, stimulating a greater response from your age defying cells.Book Now

- How Do I Prepare My Skin To Achieve The Best Results?
Preparation and consistency are the keys to a visible skin transformation. Your therapist will create a skin journey, which will include the consistent use of our prescribed skincare and in-clinic treatments prior to your first Fractional Laser appointment. This will ensure you get the most out of every treatment, for your best skin ever. Download your Skin Preparation Guide here.
- Do I Need A Skin Check?
At The Aesthetic Lounge your skin’s safety is our highest priority and why we always recommend you have a skin check every 12 months. This is for you to stay up-to-date with any skin changes you may have had and to allow for safe treatments.
However if this is your first visit to the clinic, you must provide a current skin check clearance letter, our clients recommend Mole Map Brighton.
- Do I Need A Test Patch?
Test patches allow our therapists to test the maximum and safe settings which means you will achieve your end result much quicker and more effectively. If a test patch is required, this will be provided during your consultation or prior to your first treatment at no extra charge.
Sometimes if it has been longer than 6 months or you have been exposed to the sun or had any recent medical changes you will be required to re test patch for an additional fee.
- Do I Really Need To Prepare My Skin For Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Absolutely. We understand that other clinics may treat your skin, when it’s simply not ready, but we aren’t just another skin clinic. We believe in achieving amazing, long lasting results and this can only be successfully achieved through skin preparation. Download “The 5 Steps To Achieving Your Best Skin Ever” here.
- Who Cannot Have a Fractional Laser Treatment?
The following contraindications may include: epilepsy, pregnancy, healing disorders, active infections, active cold sores, keloid scarring, some photosensitising medications and sun tanned skin or recent fake tan application.
- Can I Have Other Treatments To Supercharge My Results?
Absolutely, we actually recommend it. Fractional Laser produces superior results when alternated with Dermal Stamping, IPL Colour Correction, Sun Damage Body treatments and Plasma Fibroblast Skin Tightening.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing like our other Specialised Treatments can only be successfully performed when the treatment area is first prepared with treatments that speed up the cellular turnover and inturn improve the healthy functioning of your skin. Your skin therapist will tailor a skin journey that will not only prepare your skin, but maximise your outcomes so you start seeing results immediately.
- How Will My Skin Benefit From Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
A series of Fractional Laser Treatments will regenerate new collagen and elasticity for a fresh, ageless appearance. Immediate improvement may be seen after your first treatment, however results will continue for 3 to 12 months post treatment.
- How Much Downtime Can I Expect After Fractional Laser?
Although our non-ablative Fractional Laser is considered to be a no-downtime treatment you will have some side effects that can last for 5-7 days. Downtime can be minimised with your pre and post treatment skin care products (please note body area recovery times will triple). Skin that is not sufficiently prepared will experience increased downtime, sensitivity, complications and slower results.
Day 1-2 | Mild and temporary skin sensitivity may include: redness, tenderness, swelling, heat, stinging, gridding, localised pinpoint bruising and hair reduction.. It may feel like a mild sunburn.
Day 3-5 | As micro crusting flakes off your skin may become: itchy, dry and tight.
My skin is no longer sensitive | If your skin is looking and feeling back to normal and all micro crusts are gone, it’s now time to return to your regular skincare routine.
- How Often Can I Have Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
Once your skin is sufficiently prepared with our prescribed skincare and Advanced Treatments a series of Fractional Lasers can be performed anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks apart depending on your skin’s condition and concerns.
- How Do I Maintain My Results?
Once you have achieved your skin goals, a monthly Advanced Treatment along with your prescribed skincare products will not only help to maintain your achieved results but further improve them. Discover which of our Skin Membership programs will rapidly transform your skin.
- Do I Need Topical Numbing Cream For Pain Relief?
We do recommend topical anaesthetic cream for Fractional Laser, however depending on your tolerance levels and treatment area, some clients find they do not need numbing. You can purchase and apply a topical numbing cream yourself 45 minutes prior to your treatment. Some areas may require us to assist you in your topical anaesthetic application, additional fees will apply.
- How Can Darker Skins Be Safely Treated With Fractional Laser?
Unlike other Fractional Lasers that have a high attraction to pigmentation such as Fraxel, our non-ablative Fractionated Technology has a high attraction to water instead of pigment, allowing us to safely treat all skin colours.
- What Do Fractional Laser Treatments Feel Like?
Applying a numbing cream will greatly reduce the sensation of Fractional Laser. You may experience hot prickling and a warming sensation.
- What Is The Difference Between Non-Ablative and Ablative Lasers?
Unlike ablative fractionated lasers, our non-ablative fractionated laser does not ablate and remove columns of skin. Instead, by heating columns of the skin you will notice reduced downtime, side effects and complications that are associated with ablative lasers.
- What Types of Scarring Can Be Treated With Fractional Laser?
Fractional Laser is the preferred choice for scar revision treatments as it is a heat based treatment. Tell me more about Scarring + Stretch Marks, click here.
