Susan asks ” WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR SUN DAMAGED SKIN WITH FINE LINES”
To answer that question we must first examine how this process begins.
One of the problems that effect everyone is something called “FREE RADICAL DAMAGE”. Basically our cells use oxygen to produce energy. In the process they generate free radicals. These are unstable or damaged oxygen molecules that multiply. Free radicals can be produced by a variety of different sources like cigarette smoke, toxins such as pesticides, air pollution and most definitely sun exposure. When these free radicals attack the collagen molecules in our skin the result can be discoloration (hyperpigmentation), the appearance of fine lines and the loss of elasticity .
THATS THE BAD NEWS !
The ”GOOD NEWS” is that we can limit our free radical damage by way of vitamin rich foods, supplements, limited sun overexposure, good skin care and in general, a healthier lifestyle.
In the case of non-envasive medical procedures that can help to reverse or diminish the surface damage, I would recommend several such as Microdermabrasion, Peels and Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing. The Microdermabrasion and Peels are usually more appropriate for a superficial short term gain. The Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing is a longer lasting solution that penetrates the deeper layers of skin improving skin texture and tone, smoothing wrinkles and diminishing brown spots . (Please refer to the website for further explanation of the above treatments).
As with any medical procedure, it is important to receive an in-depth consultation to address your concerns, determine the current condition of your skin and to discuss a treatment plan best suited to your needs.
Please keep these great questions coming!!

We have received a question from a client concerning ”OILY ACNE PRONE SKIN” What types of treatments are available and are they effective?
When dealing with acne prone skin concerns, there are many factors that can influence the best course of action. During the consultation process we discuss diet, lifestyle, environment, stressors and current skin care . These details provide key information necessary to determine the most effective course of treatment. Quite often we combine several strategies such as a course of antibiotics together with Microdermabrasion, Medical Microdermabrasion, Blue Light Acne treatment and Pixel Laser Skin Resurfacing. ( refer to our website for additional details) Each treatment is customized to achieve the best results . As with any medical treatment it is impossible to predict your exact response. There are many factors that make each one of us unique. As always it is important to review all of the above to arrive at an informed decision.
I would recommend a complimentary assessment with our knowledgeable consultant to discuss options and treatments.
