Laser Skin Treatments

September 01, 2015

Patients present at the me clinic with various skin concerns ranging from pigmentation, red veins, flushing, open pores and general ageing. Unfortunately there is not one modality that treats all these conditions.We outline the different laser treatments we use to treat these various skin concerns.

Cutera ND Yag is excellent for treatment of broken capillaries. Facial capillaries are the smallest blood vessels in our body. When they are dilated or increased in number the affected area appears red and flushed and often blotchy. This can be caused by genetics, sun exposure, environmental and chemical factors.

The Cutera Lime Light is our choice for treating pigmentation and also  for skin rejuvenation.  
Hyper-Pigmentation or Excessive Skin Pigmentation is a result of abnormal production and deposition of melanin by the melanocytes. Melanocytes are pigment-producing cells.

The numbers of melanocytes present in our skin and their rate of pigment production determines our skin colour. Production of melanin is also dependant on Ultra Violet light or Sun exposure, and is a natural protective mechanism of the skin.

Laser Genesis treatment can help to restore the skin's youthful glow by smoothing out uneven skin textures caused by ageing, sun damage or scars. It achieves this by promoting collage regrowth to even out Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Open Pores, Flushing,  Uneven Skin Texture and certain Scars.

Fraxel is an effective treatment for a wide range of people and skin problems. It can help correct uneven skin colouring, brown spots from ageing and sun damage, acne scarring and fine wrinkles.

The Fraxel Laser produces thousands of tiny laser beams that are very fine but penetrate deeply into the dermis (skin). These tiny laser beams reach into this middle layer of skin; remove damaged areas and prompt the regrowth of fresh healthy skin in their place as new collagen forms and helps to tighten the skin.

CO2 Fractional Laser This treatment is performed by our surgeons and is suitable for patients requiring  deeper resurfacing for under the eye area or full face including scarring . This treatment is popular for those patients who can spare the extra downtime.

Hair Removal We can utilize two lasers for the removal of  unwanted hair. The Harmony IPL is ideal for the removal of unwanted hair for larger areas. The Cutera ND Yag is effective for smaller areas and also for patients who have darker skin.

At the Me Clinic, you will meet with one of our highly skilled practitioners who will provide a thorough facial assessment and then advise a suitable treatment plan tailored to your areas of concern.
