SKIN REJUVENATION

LASER REDUCTION OF PIGMENTATION

Noticeable pigmentation on the face or body can affect a person's confidence, but this is something which can be treated easily with the laser with incredible results. The laser works well to reduce sun spots, age spots, lentigines, melasma and other pigmented lesions by using Photo-acoustic energy to break down the pigment into tiny particles which then slough away. It may take between 1-3 monthly treatments to see maximum benefits. Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted pigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and over exposure to the sun or sun beds. From the age of around 40 the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure and age spots start to appear. Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance. Freckling and age spots are successfully lightened or removed with laser.

Pigment removal treatment is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Age spots and freckles can be lightened or removed in as little as one to three treatment sessions.The light targets areas of excess pigment safely breaking down the excess melanin.

The sun spots or freckles darken in the first few days after treatment and then the excess melanin sheds naturally away. Treatment is suitable for you if: You want a more even skin tone, you want to reduce areas of excess freckling and you want to target a specific age spot

Laser treatment can remove the imperfections caused by a wide variety of benign pigmented lesions. Laser therapy can have a positive effect on your physical appearance, as well as on your state of mind.

VASCULAR VEINS

WHAT CAUSES UNWANTED VEINS

Red, blue or purple leg and facial veins can be a result of sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.

What other factors increase my risk of varicose veins and spider veins?

Many factors increase a person's chances of developing varicose or spider veins. These include:

  • Increasing age - As you get older, the valves in your veins may weaken and not work as well.
  • Medical history - Being born with weak vein valves increases your risk.
  • Having family members with vein problems also increases your risk. About half of all people who have varicose veins have a family member who has them too.
  • Hormonal changes - These occur during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Taking birth control pills and other medicines containing estrogen and progesterone also may contribute to the forming of varicose or spider veins.
  • Pregnancy - During pregnancy, there is a huge increase in the amount of blood in the body. This can cause veins to enlarge. The growing uterus also puts pressure on the veins. Varicose veins usually improve within 3 months after delivery. More varicose veins and spider veins usually appear with each additional pregnancy.
  • Obesity - Being overweight or obese can put extra pressure on your veins. This can lead to varicose veins.
  • Lack of movement. Sitting or standing for a long time may force your veins to work harder to pump blood to your heart. This may be a bigger problem if you sit with your legs bent or crossed.

What is Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses a laser to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin's surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin rejuvenation is noticeable immediately after the treatment, and there is no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin rejuvenation and tightening occurs over the next few months, but optimal results usually require two or three treatments about a month apart.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Candidates

Many people notice signs of ageing when skin begins to sag around the face and neck. Laser skin rejuvenation is appropriate for men and women of light to medium skin types who wish to achieve dramatic results without painful surgery and lengthy recovery times. The most successful laser skin rejuvenation candidates experience permanent results as the collagen under their skin is regenerated, producing a more youthful complexion.

Cost of Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin Rejuvenation helps patients achieve younger-looking, smoother skin without undergoing expensive surgeries such as a face lift or a tummy tuck and the results won't fade after a few months. The cost varies depending on the individual patient's needs such as the size and location of the area to be treated. However, facial skin rejuvenation is considerably less expensive than invasive surgeries.
