LASER SKIN REJUVENATION
As Australians we are blessed with the most wonderful summer days and beautiful beaches. Unfortunately the harmful after effects of the sun, wind, air conditioning – coupled together with the toxins from alcohol, smoking and certain food groups eventually take their toll. Fine lines and wrinkles will gradually start to appear around the eyes, lips and neck and before too long these will gradually progress into deeper lines. As the skin produces less collagen and elastin during ageing, more side effects such as hyper-pigmentation, surface capillaries, spider veins and high colour or couperose skin will occur. Laser Skin Rejuvenation and the skin’s own ability to heal and renew will diminish these signs of ageing with very little recovery down time.
Cosmedical Clinic chooses the Cutera Laser, because it is state-of-the-art and offers a versatile platform to treat many varied skin conditions, such as pigmentation, broken capillaries, sun damaged skin, fine lines and winkles, loose skin and unwanted facial hair.
THE PEARL PROCEDURE
The Pearl procedure combines the impact of resurfacing lasers with the gentleness and safety of non-invasive procedures to treat sagging and sun damaged skin. Pearl reduces wrinkles, uneven texture and solar damage with fewer treatments and less overall recovery than other technologies to provide a healthy, pearl like glow. Pearl Fractional Ablative resurfacing solution has improved on prior fractional and traditional resurfacing technologies. Superior single treatment results and patient satisfaction are achieved through a combination of full coverage and deep fractional ablation. Pearl Resurfacing solution maximises patient outcomes and minimises downtime. The Pearl uses a unique wavelength that facilitates the proper balance of tissue removal and thermal damage to the skin surface to achieve the desired results. Results will be seen in 4-7 days. Pearl Fractional semi-ablative laser produces excellent results in a single treatment, even to the most difficult to treat areas, such as the upper lip with minimal downtime. Long-term improvement in collagen production will maximise over the next 3-6 months resulting in the disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles, for a plumper, healthier skin. The procedure is simple, book in for a consultation and find out how this technique can improve your skin and your wellbeing. The procedure is performed after local anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin for 60 minutes. You will then require 4-7 days of “less social activity” as the skin heals. Then your skin will have a healthy pearl-like glow. Some patients may require up to three treatments spaced approximately 3-6 months apart to receive desired results, other patients may only require one treatment. This will depend on patients skin condition and concerns and downtime available. These treatments can be combined for optimal results – this treatment is called The Pearl Fusion.
VEIN THERAPY FOR FACE AND BODY
The Cool Glide System delivers a pulse of energy, which will cause blood within the vein to coagulate and eventually destroy the vessel, which is later, reabsorbed by the body and eliminated. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skins surface where it should be. This treatment has proven itself over and over again with impressive results. Patients often require 1-3 treatments depending on the severity of the problem, with NO down time. All you have to do is make an appointment to assess your condition and treatment programme.
LIMELIGHT (INTENSE PULSE LIGHT)
Limelight treatment is an ideal treatment for your face, neck and décolleté for skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) and brown spots (pigmentation), ideal for skin damage due to sun exposure. Laser light is applied to the skin with a thin layer of ultrasound gel, and treatment time depends on how large the area is that needs treatment. Treatment usually takes less than 1 hour, with no pain medication and there is no downtime required. Brown spots, flaking, redness and mild swelling may appear post-treatment, this is temporary and will subside within a few days. It is important that you do not expose yourself to the sun and do not irritate the area treated. It is usual that 2-3 treatments are required to receive optimal results. New brown spots, telangiectasia and redness may appear again with new sun damage.
This laser treatment is ideal for diffusing redness, fine line wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. On average you may require 4-6 treatments in order to achieve optimal results. The condition, rosacea, often presents with diffuse redness and non-discrete, well-defined, vessels and fine pluses. This is a hereditary problem and is usually treated with laser and oral therapy. You can expect subtle, yet constant effects after each treatment leaving the skin slightly pink for a few hours. No anaesthetics (topical pain gel) are required. Genesis works by gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin surface and gently stimulating collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. You will feel some gentle warming of the skin during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth over the skin. You may go back to your normal working life with NO downtime.
