Sun Damaged Skin? We can help you!
Has the summer sun left your faced and body freckled and sun damaged? Our Dual yellow laser can remove sun spots, freckles and pigmentation within as little as 5 minutes.
Pigmented skin lesions contain the brown or black pigment melanin, which has a broad range of absorption in the visible and infrared wavebands. At Skin Doctor SA the aim is to destroy the pigmented target cells and not to harm the surrounding tissue. Short pulses reduce the amount that the targeted cells heat up, thereby reducing thermal injury that could result in scarring.
The signs of aging and sun-damage on the face can be formed from multiple components; loss of elastin and collagen from the dermal matrix forms lines and wrinkles and gives the skin that dull, sagging appearance with large open pores. Pigmentation changes caused by excessive and prolonged sun exposure can leave the skin with distinct brown spots. Enlarged or broken capillaries and a thinning of the skin can produce red flushed areas or even distinct visible veins especially around the nose and cheek areas.
While no single system is available on the market to deal 100% with all of these conditions, at Skin Doctor SA we offer a range of treatments including Dual Yellow Laser, Intense Pulse Light and Radio-Frequency Micro Needling used to perform skin rejuvenation that will help to soften the visible aspects of all factors; softening lines and wrinkles and tightening skin, reducing pigmentation and vascular conditions.
New collagen is formed in response to the body’s perceived injury to ‘heal’ the wound, whether that is by surgical intervention or traumatic injury. The light from Chromolite penetrates deep into the dermal layer of the skin tissue, heating up the dermal microvasculature and triggering off this ‘healing’ response.
For advanced repair and skin cancer prevention we also offer Photo Dynamic Therapy. This treatment can also assist with Actinic Keratoses, Dyschromia, Telangiectasia and fine wrinkles.
