Skin renewal slows down; combine this with oily type skin, acne continues to be a problem. In addition to physician prescribed effective skin care, clinic-based treatments hasten recovery and maintains results.
Chemical peel – the more superficial Clarifying Peel is perfect for unclogging whiteheads and decongesting the skin.
Laser peel targets acne causing oil glands, shrinks the glands, and reduces pore size. It also gently exfoliates dead skin cells and comedones.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) kills acne-causing bacteria which reside in the oil glands. This treatment involves the application of a primer onto the skin, followed by irradiating the skin with light source. It controls excessive sebum production and stimulates collagen synthesis for healing of acne scars.
Wrinkles result from weakening and gradual depletion of collagen and elastin in the skin. Fine lines start to appear in thin skin around the eyes. Pigmentation is the result of combination of UV radiation, hormonal stimulation and acne.
Fractional Laser Resurfacing is a state of the art laser technology which is optimized for treatment of stubborn wrinkles, scars, large pores and pigmentation. It penetrates deeply into the skin for regeneration of new collagen and tightening of sagging skin. There is minimal downtime after laser treatment. Some facial redness is expected after the treatment, which goes away within 3 days. Tiny scabs may be evident during the recovery period of 5 to 7 days, though these can be easily concealed with make up.
Botulinum toxin injections should begin earlier than later, before permanent signs of aging set in. Apart from erasing frown lines, botulinum toxin can be used to smooth out a dimply chin, eliminate crow’s feet, slim down square jaws, and upturn the corners of a droopy mouth. Safe, minimal to no downtime.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are often used in combination with botulinum toxin to plump up facial crevices, restoring the youthful contours of the face. The treatment is safe with minimal to no downtime.
Chemical peel provide tightening and resurfacing results due to its action on the deep dermis. Dramatic improvement in terms of skin tone, pigmentation and fine wrinkles can be achieved in just 1 session.
Laser Rejuvenation targets unwanted pigmentation as well as stimulates collagen synthesis in the dermis. Skin feels supple immediately after treatment, and signs of aging are reduced. This treatment has minimal to no downtime, and can be repeated as part of an intensive rejuvenative regime, or as a complement to maintenance anti-aging program.
Eyebags, dark circles and “oil seeds”
Start with effective skin care. An eye cream should contain anti-oxidants to protect the skin against environmental stressors and premature skin aging. It should also contain lightening ingredients to target excess pigments in the skin and reduce congestion below the skin.
Hyaluronic acid injections can be use to firm and plump the skin, giving a smooth contour to the eyes and brighten tired-looking eyes.
Pigment laser can improve dark circles caused by excess pigmentation. This also has the added benefit of stimulating collagen production within the skin to smooth out wrinkles and strengthen the skin.
Laser resurfacing can remove wrinkles and stimulate new collagen under the skin. It is used to thicken the thin eyelid skin and is use to improve wrinkles, pigmentation and dark circles under the eyes. Syringoma, commonly referred to as “oil seeds” around the eyes can be effectively treated with long lasting results.
