When it comes to a person’s appearance and confidence, freckles on the face can either be an asset or a burden. Often it depends on how many freckles a person has, how far they are spaced apart, and how dark they are. If freckles are grouped in one particular area, or if there are just too many of them, they can make you feel self conscious. But there is a solution. Skiin offers laser treatment for freckles in Melbourne that can remove or significantly reduce the appearance of freckles.
Freckles are caused by exposure to the sun. They are simply a build up of melanin (i.e. the pigment that gives freckles their brown colour) that has formed in one spot. Unlike moles, you cannot feel freckles; they are simply colour spots. They will not become skin cancers, but they do form as a result of damaging UV exposure.
Whether you’re seeking laser treatment for freckles on the face or elsewhere, it’s important to first understand how the procedure works. Laser freckle removal works by way of laser light beams being applied to the affected areas of the skin. The beams kill off the melanin affected skin cells, which the body then sheds. Over a number of treatments, spaced well apart to allow the face to recover, our freckle removal laser in Melbourne can help to make freckles disappear or lighten significantly.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology used to perform various skin treatments aesthetically and therapeutically. Treatments include Hair Removal and Photo Rejuvenation. Skin concerns for IPL include – Skin Pigmentation, Sun Damage, Broken Capillaries and Thread Veins. IPL can also alleviate dermatologic diseases. The primary goal of IPL is to make the skin tone or colour more even. Another more subtle goal of IPL is to add small amounts of Collagen back into the skin near its surface. This will not reduce wrinkles but will have an effect on the texture of the skin.
Diathermy is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment used to treat skin problems such as moles, warts, skin tags, spider veins, dilated and broken capillaries, red spots, white spots, and milia. Diathermy gives blemish free smooth skin, instantaneously. It is a bloodless procedure and does not require any stitches. It is used primarily for cosmetic treatment of the face, neck, shoulder, chest and back. These are the areas of the body which get exposed to the harmful effects of the sun and the environment and more often develop skin problems.
