The word ‘cocktail’ is sometimes used figuratively for a mixture of liquids or other substances. Just as you can enjoy sipping a cocktail while watching a glorious sunset, so your skin will enjoy a special cocktail of skin refreshment treatments to keep it as healthy and glowing as possible.
When registered nurse Molly Brown of Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic talks about a ‘cocktail’ of skin treatment, she reminds us that every face she sees has its own unique combination of characteristics and challenges. She believes it’s important to have a qualified consultant who is an expert on reliable Brisbane cosmetic skin treatment inspect your skin before deciding on the right cocktail of treatment and ongoing care.
Nurse Molly talked about some examples of combination skin treatments that are possible at Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic. These are only two of many examples. A personal consultation will reveal the best treatment to address individual skin problems.
Wrinkled Sun-Damaged Skin Needs Support
This person has lost the layer of fat (collagen) that puts some ‘spring’ into their skin, giving it youthful fullness. With this loss of fullness come the wrinkles that are an inevitable part of ageing. The skin is fine and sun-damaged.
There are several non-invasive skin treatments that are relevant for this person. The Angelite II Super Intense Pulse of Light (SIPL) Skin Rejuvenation Treatment has many applications and is very useful for treating sun damage. It can put new life into sun-damaged skin, helping to reduce fine wrinkles, and helping to reduce dark pigmentation and ‘Rosacea’. It does this by using heat energy to set up a natural process of attacking the damaged areas so the body can clear them away. After three treatments, patients will normally see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
This person has also lost fullness in the sub-dermal layer, that is, the lower layer of skin that is critical to support the outer layer. Dermal filler is a special get (Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic recommends bio-synthetic non-animal fillers) that is injected into the skin to plump it up. The gel not only gives natural volume and helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles, but it helps stimulate the body to make more of its own collagen.
The combination of these two treatments means that lines and damaged areas are treated from the surface with SIPL treatment, and then the deep layers of skin are supported and rejuvenated with the use of dermal fillers.
Skin Refreshment & Treatment with Pre-Cancerous Lesions
A person with badly sun-damaged skin and pre-cancerous lesions can be treated with a combination of Photodynamic Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation. The first step in this particular skin refreshment treatment 9will be to examine the skin very carefully to determine whether there are any lesions that need to be surgically removed. Once this is taken care of, Photodynamic Therapy can be performed to take care of all other lesions.
Firstly, a medicated cream is applied to the areas to maximise the skin refreshment procedure. This is the agent that is activated by an intense blue light to destroy the pre-cancerous cells. The skin may be red, tight and somewhat swollen for a few days, but this will gradually subside to leave the skin free of lesions that are in danger of becoming cancerous.
Later, a treatment that harvests your own body’s cells for re-infusion can be used to help regenerate your skin. This involves taking some of your own blood to create a ‘platelet-rich plasma’ from your red blood cells. This is then injected into the sub-dermal layer of your skin to help reverse the sagging and thinning that is a result of sun damage.
With this combination of treatments, potentially dangerous lesions are removed, and then your skin is treated to give it a boost.
