The environment we live in is often just as important for the health of our skin as is our personal skin care. This is especially true when we live in areas that are sunny or if we simply expose ourselves to sunlight during our vacations; this will often lead to the appearance of not only sun spots and age spots, but also of actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, actinic cheilitis and freckles. Avoiding smoking, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light without protection and having a balanced diet can extend the health and beauty of the skin, though sometimes, additional help is needed to address the reversible advancement of age. Fortunately, Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides great age spots removal and sun spots removal in Cheltenham using the innovative Deka Fractional CO2 Laser device.
Sun spots and age spots, sometimes called solar lentigines, are darkened portions of the skin that appear following prolonged exposure to the sun. This skin condition is completely harmless and is not considered a serious medical issue, since it does not cause any physical pain or hinder the proper functioning of the body, though it is considered to be unaesthetic. The ultraviolet rays greatly accelerate the production of melanin, causing the appearance of brown spots of different sizes and shapes on various parts of the body. Excessive sun exposure will also break down the epidermal elastin and severely damage the upper layer of the skin, reducing natural elasticity and producing new wrinkles. Patients who have white toned skin are generally more predisposed towards presenting age spots and sun spots, though this skin condition does unfortunately affect all races, genders and age groups. Luckily for those who wish to undergo sun spots removal, age spots removal and hand spots removal in Cheltenham, Renew Skin & Health Clinic provides excellent service.
Prior to actually initiating the brown spots removal or age spots removal treatment, our team of highly skilled dermatologists will hold a detailed medical consultation which will help determine which course of action is best suited for you particular needs while it will also clarify any questions you might have regarding the procedure. The consultation phase is very important since it allows the doctor to determine if the skin lesions presented by the patient are benign or malign, as well as to better understand the aesthetic expectations he/she has from the procedure. If the lesions are malignant, then either a shave biopsy or a complete surgical excision will most likely be recommended in order to ensure that they do not develop into anything more serious. If, on the other hand, the skin lesions are benign, then the Renew Skin & Health Clinic team will use the effective Deka Fractional CO2 Laser to slightly damage the superficial stratum of the epidermis. The high-intensity, concentrated, monochromatic beam of light will remove any brown spots while also stimulating the natural production of collagen and new skin cells. The dermatological specialists of Renew Skin & Health Clinic recommend this form of laser treatment for sun spots removal, age spots removal and brown spots removal as well as for correcting actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, actinic cheilitis and freckles. By using the Deka Fractional CO2 Laser, our medical staff has considerably increased the practical accuracy and adaptability which are conducive to an excellent medical and aesthetic result. This will also reduce the discomfort experienced by the patient and shorten the recovery period following the procedure. Sun spots removal and age spots removal is a simple, safe, non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that can effectively eliminate any unaesthetic brown spots without any scarring.
Increasing the daily intake of Vitamin C can help the patient better maintain the appearance of his skin once it has been treated. Also, undergoing a kojic acid skin treatment can help prepare the skin for the laser treatment and enhance the quality of the end result, if initiated approximately 3 to 4 weeks before the actual operation. If the patient has had any issues relating to herpes outbreaks, then our team will recommend the he undergoes an antiviral treatment 6 days before the laser operation. In any case, we will make sure that each patient enjoys a treatment that is customized to his particular medical requirements.
