Poikiloderma (or Poikiloderm of Civatte) is a common and benign condition that often appears on the sides of the neck and the décolletage. The condition was first identified in 1923 and is most often seen in women and those with fair skin, from middle aged to the elderly. It is typically caused by damage to the skin from ultraviolet light, but hormonal changes such as menopause can also cause it.
Most sufferers never seek treatment for the condition. However, if you are looking for Poikiloderma treatment in Melbourne to reduce the visible signs of the condition (redness, telangiectasia, hyperpigmentation, and skin atrophy) book an appointment with the trusted team at Skiin.
Skiin recommends a number of Poikiloderma treatment options that typically provide satisfactory results, including:
Known as IPL, Intense Pulse Light, photorejuvenation, or ‘fotofacial’, this non-invasive treatment takes around 30 minutes in office with little preparation or downtime.
This is a medium-depth chemical peel that can be used for conditions including sun damage, fine lines, acne, open pores, and pigmentation.
Another non-invasive, light-based Poikiloderma treatment, Laser Genesis uses high-powered micropulses of ND:Yag technology. This is a proprietary treatment from CuteraTM and is the genuine article when it comes to skin rejuvenation. Laser Genesis is recommended for redness, large pores, scars, and improving skin texture for all skin types and colours.
