Here at Pulse Light Clinic we started out helping people deal with Rosacea but it didn’t take long for us to see the many other skin issues that were causing people to lose their confidence and happiness with their body. For this reason we branched out into a wider range of skin treatments. Check out what we have to offer below.
Acne Scar Removal
Dealing with acne can be pretty bad if not traumatic, but then just to make matters worse once it is finally gone you will often be left with scarring. These scars fall into two categories. Hypertrophic or keloid scarring and atrophic or depressed scarring. Hypertrophic scars are formed when the body produces too much collagen as the wounds heal resulting in raised tissue on the surface of your skin. Atrophic scars are caused by a loss of tissue, they can be small obvious holes, or depressed oval shapes. Both forms of acne scars can be dealt with in the same way whether they are on your face or body; using the Icon laser treatment. This treatment works on any skin type and is very simple. Pulses of laser light break down the scar tissue and stimulate your body to create new healthy tissue in its place. This new tissue will give you a smoother and more even skin tone and will also be the colour of your natural skin.
We all know that we are going to age and that the signs of this ageing will inevitable appear on our skin but that doesn’t necessarily prepare us for when it really does happen. You may start to notice wrinkles, frown lines or crow’s feet, sagging skin, age-spots or changes of skin texture, whatever it is, it is often unwanted. An excellent treatment for anti-ageing is now out and it is called the PicoWay Resolve. This laser works to stimulate your body’s natural handlings for the skin by increasing collagen production bit by bit following each treatment, this results in a decrease of those wrinkles and crow’s feet, a diminishing of those age-spots and an increase in the elasticity and smoothness of your skin. It is non-surgical, and with no downtime required getting your body back into shape, is a simple and easy process.
Skin pigmentations can be anything from freckles to malasma with all the stops in between, sun-spots, liver spots and so on. These are caused by melanocyte cells (the cells which create melanin) becoming damaged or unhealthy in some way, usually from some environmental factor such as cigarettes, pollution or the sun. If you find these a blemish on your appearance they can be a negative impact on your life. Luckily they are treatable and using the PicoWay Resolve laser you can actually break down the excess melanin in these spots into particles that the body can dispose of, meaning that these skin pigmentations will start to fade away. On top of that, simultaneously the laser stimulates collagen production meaning your skin will become smoother, healthier and more elastic, giving you back the healthy blemish free skin you want.
There is nothing like unwanted wrinkles to make you feel your age or older than you should. Whether they are around your eyes, on your forehead, chin or neck they drastically increase the appearance of your age. Wrinkles on the face especially are unable to be covered up and as they increase in size or depth can completely change the shape of your face. Whether they have come on prematurely or you just don’t want these signs of aging on display, you can improve the appearance of wrinkles with the PicoWay Resolve Laser. By encouraging your body’s natural collagen production the laser increases the elasticity of your skin thereby diminishing those wrinkles. Over a course of treatments you will see those wrinkles get less and less and your skin get smoother and healthier.
Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks are a common thing, especially among women. Pregnancy is the most known time for stretch marks to be created, but any time of rapid growth can cause them to appear, such as puberty, big weight gain or loss, or weight training. The most common problem areas for stretch marks are the abdomen, upper arms, hips, thighs and bum. Skin of any colour can be affected but the lighter the colour of your skin the clearer and more noticeable these stretch marks usually are. The Icon laser is FDA approved for handling stretch marks; it sends out fractional pulses of light which break down the scar tissue causing the stretch marks, while helping your skin generate healthy, new tissue to replace it. This means both the colour and texture of your skin start to change reducing the appearance of stretch marks and leaving you with healthy smoother skin in its place.
