Laser Skin Rejuvenation

INTRODUCTION

Some of the changes that accompany ageing are natural and inevitable, part of intrinsic ageing. More significant for most people are the external factors that cause extrinsic ageing; factors such as smoking and sun exposure. Most people do not like the thought of ageing. Exposure to the sun accelerates the ageing process of the skin, and can cause damage to the surface blood vessels, pigmented disorders, such as ephelides (freckles) and solar lintigines (age spots), and an irregular pore size.

ABOUT THE TREATMENT

The aim of the treatment using IPL is to remove the pigment formed as a result of sun damage and prevent its reappearance, and also stop the profusion of small blood vessels responsible for diffuse redness (erythema) which is commonly found in the ageing skin. Improvement of skin texture will also result in many clients. The intended areas for treatment are the face, neck, chest and hands. The goal is to treat the lesions without damaging the surrounding tissues.

Acne

 

A skin condition characterized by red pimples on the skin, especially on the face, due to inflamed or infected sebaceous glands.

 
Pigmentation.

 

• Melasma is a condition that is caused by a change in hormones, common in pregnancy.
• Sunspots are caused by excessive exposure to the skin.
• Hyperpigmentation occurs when a skin injury or trauma heals and leaves a flat area of discoloration behind.

 

Sun spots
 

Sun spots are caused by sun exposure. For this reason, they appear mainly on body parts that are frequently exposed, such as the face, hands and arms. They tend to be small darkened patches of the skin.

 

Broken Capillaries
 

When blood vessels burst, they cause a spider vein effect. This causes redness in the skin as the blood vessels because more visible. Since broken blood vessels do not heal on their own, they will remain on the surface of the skin until something is done about them.

 

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder which affects the central facial area. In the early stages, rosacea begins as redness on the nose cheeks, chin or forehead. Overtime the disorder may also display prominent blood vessels, swelling or skin eruptions similar to acne. One of the side effects is broke capillaries as previously stated. Rosacea most often affects fair skinned people who blush easily. In the most advanced stage of rosacea, the nose may become red, enlarged and bulbous, a condition known as
rhinophyma.

were treated will become oedematous and the swelling can last for 4 days
-Pigmentation – Any pigmentation in the area will turn darker after treatment causing a
light crust, a ‘dirty look’ and will slough off in the next 7-10 day

 

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when a skin injury or trauma heals and leaves a flat area of discoloration behind. It’s commonly found among acne sufferers and can also be caused by cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion, laser treatment and chemical peels. There are other factors that can cause patches of the skin to become darker-such as scarring, birthmarks, solar or actinic keratoses and skin cancers-but these aren’t considered to be forms of hyperpigmentation.

 
The Main Contributing Factors of Pigmentation

Sun Exposure is the number one reason for hyperpigmentation, as it’s sunlight that triggers the production of melanin in the first place. Melanin acts as your skin’s natural sunscreen by protecting you from harmful UV rays, which is why people tan in the sun. But excessive sun exposure can disrupt this process, leading to hyperpigmentation. Once dark spots have developed, sun exposure can also exacerbate dark spots by making freckles, age spots, melisma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation spots even darker.

 

Limiting the time you spend in the sun, wearing protective clothing and using broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF can help reduce your risk of developing hyperpigmentation and stop existing dark spots from getting worse.
