Skin Rejuvenation & Wrinkles Treatment

Physical aging, associateded with the passing of time, is an inevitable and natural aspect of life that affects all the functions, organs and tissues of the human body, including the skin. This normal process is boosted by external environmental factors (ultraviolet rays, smoke, alcohol, pollution, etc.), which produce what is called photoaging.

The clinical effects include thinning, transparency and sagging of the skin, wrinkles, uneven tone, pigmentation and vascular marks and irregularities in the skin surface. The phrase “anti-aging” associates with the application of advanced biomedical technologies focused on the early detection, prevention and treatment of aging-related disorder.

Wanting to look healthy & young has been a desire for lots of people and for this purpose we have brought you the latest technologies with best expertise to offer versatile treatments that can be tailored to the specific demands of each patient.

We have focused on less invasive systems and methods combining a high degree of efficacy with shorter post-treatment recovery times, designed to meet the patients’ desire to be able to continue their work and social activities without interruption.

Photo Rejuvenation (Laser Peel) with CO2 Fractional Laser & Radiofrequency (RF):.
This innovative technology corrects skin imperfections and counteracts the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and flabbiness, by exerting a unique action on the tissues with effective stimulation of neocollagenesis. It is also ideal for areas that are considered untreatable such as the neck, décolleté and periocular area. The therapeutic action selectively reaches surface tissues and deeper areas, ensuring maximum reliability in controlling the application, with minimum thermal damage and extremely rapid recovery times for patients.

Needle & Needless Radio Frequency:.
Radiofrequency (RF) is electromagnetic radiation whose primary effect on the skin is considered to be thermal. The main objective of equipments based on RF is to heat specific layers of the skin, induce dermal shrinking and promote neocollagenesis. The ability of RF energy to deliver heat to dermal structures results in nonsurgical lifting and tightening of tissue without the disruption of epidermal integrity.

Carboxy Therapy:.
A minimally-invasive procedure that is able to stimulate the local production of collagen in the dermis. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is infiltrated into the subcutaneous tissue through a tiny needle, from the injection point, CO2 diffuses easily into adjacent tissues. It introduces additional oxygen into the affected areas, and the result is a skin tightening with an improvement in facial wrinkles. The additional Oxygen has also an effect on the color of the skin, especially dark under-eye brown circles (caused by poor circulation in the skin).

Mesotherapy:.
A minimally invasive procedure that is widely used to treat medical conditions and various injuries. This medical specialty targets problem areas with microinjections of homeopathic or conventional medicines, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Tiny “medicinal bullets” are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) that is highly specific to the condition being treated.

Chemical Peels:.
Chemical peels include applying of an acid solution to the skin, which helps enhance acne blemishes, sun damage, age spots, freckles, rough skin and uneven pigmentation. All portions of the body can benefit from a chemical peel. The procedure causes a uniform exfoliation of the skin layers, varying from superficial to deep. Peels use differing formulas of chemicals to treat your skin. Mild chemicals (like glycolic acid) create very superficial changes, but more irritating chemicals (such as phenol) can cause more profound changes in your skin.

Skin Boosters:.
Skin booster injection is the quick SOS treatment when it comes to dry, tired skin. In addition to powerful hydration, your skin will feel firmer and fine lines will be diminished as skin’s natural balance is restored with a mix of Hyaluronic Acid & (dermo-restructuring complex), amino acids, antioxidants, vitamin B6 and minerals that are essential for skin that needs more delicate care.

It introduces extra oxygen into the affected locations, and the final result is a skin tightening with an improvement in facial wrinkles. The additional Oxygen has also an effect on the color of the skin, particularly dark under-eye brown circles (caused by poor circulation in the skin).

New technologies in lasers reviewed

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Some of the latest developments and uses in laser technology were reviewed at the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting.

By: Nazanin Saedi, MD

“There are so many devices out there, and the technology keeps growing for lasers.

We have to take a close look at whether they actually work, and look at the research that’s been done,” Nazanin Saedi, MD, assistant professor and director of Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology, Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, told Healio.com.

Tattoo removal

While the current gold standard for removing tattoos is the Q-switched laser, a newer picosecond laser called PicoSure (Cynosure), which has 10-12 second pulse duration “does a better job of breaking up the tattoo particles,” Saedi said.

Saedi cited her research that demonstrated 15 darkly pigmented tattoos had greater than 75% clearance using the picosecond laser after an average of 4.25 treatments.

“In the coming years we’re going to learn a lot more about using picosecond lasers, not only for tattoos, but for pigmented lesions,” she said.

Hair removal:

Vectus (Palomar) is a hair-removal system that uses a diode laser. It has a small and large spot size, “which makes large areas like the back of the legs easier to treat,” Saedi said. “[The large spot size] makes it more efficient for us to treat hair.”

Vascular lesions

The Excel V (Cutera) is a device that uses 532-nm and 1,064-nm wavelengths to treat rosacea, poikiloderma and leg veins.

“The 532 is really great for areas [including the alar area] that are sometimes difficult to treat with the pulse-dye laser,” Saedi said.

Body contouring

Saedi focused on two devices that use heat to reduce fat. “We know that using cold has been effective for treating fat, so what about heat?” Saedi said.

Liposonix (Solta Medical) uses high-intensity focused ultrasound. The beam induces a focal zone of heating that leads to rapid cell death, and over time, fat is reabsorbed into the body.

Most studies have shown that there is more than 2 cm reduction in abdominal circumference.

Side effects including pain and “bruising can be pretty intense,” Saedi said.

TruSculpt (Cutera) uses radiofrequencies that uniformly heat subcutaneous fat layers at therapeutic temperatures of 45 degrees Celsius. Saedi displayed an example of a patient who had two contour treatments for the outer thighs, “an area that’s hard to treat with our noninvasive devices that are available,” she said.

Skin resurfacing

Saedi profiled two low-energy fractionated devices. Emerge (Palomar) has shown success in treating facial brown spots after 3 months. Clear + Brilliant (Solta Medical) was used to treat pore size in a study conducted by Saedi. After six treatments, detectable pores were reduced.

While there is minimal downtime for patients with these procedures, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results, Saedi said.

Conditions and Medications that Cause skin pigmentation

Skin Pigmentation or Dark spots on the skin, also known as hyper-pigmentation, are a popular skin problem particularly beginning in middle age.

There are a range of conditions and agents that can cause dark spots to create.

Skin Disorders that Trigger Dark Spots

Among uppermost under-recognized reasons for dark spots is post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

This is a dark spot that happens after some kind of trauma to the skin – especially infections like acne.

This one and other skin disorders are mentioned below:
Melasma
Riehl’s melanosis
Poikiloderma of Civatte
Erythromelanosis follicularis
Linea Fusca
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation

Medicines that Trigger Dark Spots

Specific medications sensitize the skin to the sun and other medications can cause dark spots without any sun exposure.

What is Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation?

Uppermost common offending medications are mentioned below:

Estrogens
Tetracyclines
Amiodarone
Phenytoin
Phenothiazines
Sulfonamides

UV Light Causes Certain Sorts of Dark Spots

UV light is a primary reason for not only dark spots, but also other kinds of skin damage.

The numerous types of dark spots caused by UV light are mentioned below:

Melasma
Solar lentigines – freckles
Ephelides

Other Reasons for Dark Spots

These are other conditions or disorders that can trigger dark spots:
Pregnancy
Liver disease
Addison’s disease
Hemachromatosis
Pituitary tumors
