Keep the appearance of your skin healthy and glowing with our anti-wrinkle and skin damage repair techniques.
Wrinkles are part of the aging process as we naturally lose skin strength. The phenomenon of thinner, weakened skin is due to loss of collagen (responsible for supporting the skin) and repetitive muscle movement (which causes the famous lines of expression and crow’s feet). The process is gradual and requires regular treatment―first, the wrinkles will only appear with movement and eventually, they will barely be visible at all.
Wrinkles are inevitable but there are many approaches to help combat the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Our non-invasive acne treatments include the use of BOTOX COSMETIC® and DYSPORT®, for example, which are used to prevent the formation or deepening of wrinkles; fillers also work to restore volume and compensate for the fat and collagen loss; Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is another method used to prevent wrinkles and restore volume naturally.
Acne is a common skin condition that affects many teenagers, but also adults. It occurs when the hair follicles become clogged by sebum and dead cells, being colonized by bacteria that generate inflammation―this is why ‘outbreaks’ are so common on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. It is unclear why some people are more prone to acne than others but research suggests hormones, specifically androgen, play an imperative role as hormones make the skin’s oil glands larger and create more sebum.
Acne can affect our confidence. Sometimes it improves as time goes by and hormones calm down, but sometimes there’s a need to seek help. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available. Hydrafacial® is a great treatment option to help with current acne outbreaks. This effective acne treatment removes dead skin cells, cleanse the pores, and infuses the product deep into the skin tissue. Our medical peels can also help with breakouts and uneven skin texture.
Acne scars treatment
Acne breakouts might, unfortunately, result in scars. This occurs as the skin heals itself by replacing the lost skin tissue that has been damaged. If the body ends up producing too much or too little new skin tissue to replace the damaged tissues, scaring occurs. When too much tissue is created, the acne lesion may become a raised scar (hypertrophic scarring). In the case that too little new skin tissue is produced, the result is depressions in the skin (atrophic scarring).
Dark marks on the skin, after an acne outbreak, may also occur―this is the result of changes in pigmentation (skin colour). When a lesion opens – as a result of popping or other trauma – the skin must close back together and cover up the depression. If the skin trauma is particularly deep, the body’s response to cover it up may not be as seamless. Often, the skin that closes over the wound changes colour, tone, or texture. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, chemical peels, and micro-needling can be used as an acne scar treatment to give a smoother texture as well as even out skin tone.
Age spot & sun damage
Flat brown, black, or grey spots on the skin are a sign of aging. Commonly referred to as age spots, liver spots, solar lentigines or sunspots, they usually develop on areas of the skin that are most exposed to the sun; such as the face, hands, forearms, shoulders, and upper back.
Age spots are a frequent occurrence and result from excess production of melanin, a skin pigment. Unprotected exposure to ultraviolet radiation aggravates the quality of the skin and increases the occurrence of spots.
Skin brightening treatments such as Photofacial (IPL), Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), micro-needling, and chemical peels can help to repair hyper-pigmented or dull skin to create a bright and even skin tone.
