The Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure
The Walter-Nolan Multi-Laser Procedures are the speciality of the house at Neutral Bay Laser & Dermatology Clinic. Developed by our founder, Dr James Walter, and our skin laser specialist, Dr Marianne Nolan, this method of treatment offers the most effective skin rejuvenation available, tailoring the choice of lasers and treatments to your skin’s specific needs and condition.
The WNMLP uses multiple lasers in one treatment sitting, to address your skin’s unique combination of redness, pigmentation and blemishes. It is a cost-effective and time-effective rejuvenation process and can be used on the face, neck and décolletage, as well as hands and arms.
Typically patients require three to four treatments about one month apart.
Treatment with the Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure
Patients arrive an hour before laser treatment to have anaesthetic cream (Emla) applied to the areas being treated.
When the patient is ready for treatment to begin, eye shields will be placed over their eyes.
The combination of lasers used will vary from one patient to the next, but could include the Ellipse Nordlys, vascular, pigment or erbium lasers. Most lasers cause a slight stinging feeling, similar to the flick of a small, warm elastic band against your skin.
Depending on the area being treated, the treatment can last between 30 – 60 minutes.
After treatment, we offer you ice packs to keep the treated area cool. Most patients have some redness and swelling for a day or two and some patients will experience some pigmentation, which will flake or fade after two or three days. For this reason, we like to ensure patients are free from important engagements or events for several days following the Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure. Make up can be worn immediately after treatment.
Potential Side Effects
Laser treatments are very safe. However, redness, some swelling and possible pigmentation can occur for 1-3 days after treatment.
Duration of Treatment
Multiple treatments will commonly be required and the number of treatments required can vary from patient to patient. Three to four treatments are typical, one month apart.
The costs of the Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure will vary considerably, depending on the number of lasers being used, the size of the area of skin being treated and the number of treatments required. For this reason, we cannot give generalised estimates. Patients are requested to see our dermatologist, in the first instance, who will perform a skin health check prior to approving the patient for the Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure. This ensures there are no pre-existing skin concerns which may either affect the efficacy of the Walter-Nolan Multi Laser Procedure or which may themselves be aggravated or negatively affected by the treatment. Patients will have a quote given to them at this consultation with the dermatologist, and are free to make their treatment booking at that time or to take home the information for further consideration.
