Texture / Clarity
Blotchy rough skin is most often experienced through the aging process, however many medications and topical preparations can also prematurely age the skin. Skin rejuvenation can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from laser, light and other energy-based treatments. The result is a smoother and clearer appearance of the skin.
Pigmented lesions such as age and sun spots and many other types of ‘blotches’ may be treated with laser devices in various ways.
Q-Switched lasers emit pulses of light in a very short time (in the nanosecond range), which, due to their specific wavelength, are selectively absorbed by the skin pigment melanin. Nd:YAG lasers, which work in the near-infrared range, have proved themselves to be indispensable in achieving results with little to no downtime.
Rough blotchy skin may also be treated using ablative lasers, which works to remove the top layers of skin, causing smooth new skin to form and collagen to be renewed. Lasers are more precise and effective than chemical peels when it comes to skin resurfacing.
Blue Toning by IRIS is extremely popular as the Nd:YAG laser light which is specifically absorbed by skin pigmentation is combined with ‘rapid fire mode’ at 15hz (15 shots per second) creating a high strength exfoliation allowing for visible results you can see and feel.
Utilizing ‘Cold ablation’ with the MCL31 Dermablate it is possible to effectively improve skin texture without patient downtime. Skin remodelling and a reduction in superficial wrinkles, skin texture and the improvement of blotchiness is the ultimate outcome from this procedure.
