3 Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures

Time, gravity, and our general environment take a toll on the health and appearance of our skin. While age is the notorious instigator of most of these skin conditions, warts, moles, sun spots, crow’s feet, and other fine lines can be brought on by dietary and environmental factors.

Academy Laser Clinics, a leading skin clinic Sydney offers an array of skin treatments to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. One of the most effect skin treatments they off is the Fractionated CO2 DOT Laser.

The DOT Laser is a non-invasive surgical procedure that can clear wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, warts, moles, and other growths on the skin. Going further, it can remove not just acne scars, but also scars sustained from injuries and previous surgical procedures.

As for complexion, DOT Laser is a viable option for anyone who isn’t satisfied with the evenness of their complexion, wants to clear sunspots, or wants to generally enhance the tone of their skin. Medical conditions such as Sebaceous Hyperplasia, which causes breakouts of yellowish bumps on the forehead, nose, and cheeks, and Lichen Sclerosus can also be treated using this laser treatment technique.

How the DOT Laser Treatment Works

The DOT Laser facilitates collagen remodeling in the skin by contracting it then using thermal heat to cause collagen shrinkage. Over the course of 30 days to one year, the skin rebuilds its collagen, and this remodeling results in smoother, more supple skin.

The procedure itself is relatively painless. Opting for a more intense laser treatment session should result in a more noticeable outcome, but it is also harder to endure and will increase your recovery time.

Ordinarily, the CO2 DOT Laser Treatment will have minimal downtime depending on how intense the treatment was. More intense treatments will require up to 7 days of recovery, and at least 5.

The fractionated CO2 DOT Laser technique is highly recommended to everyone with skin conditions since it is highly customizable to suit different skin types and treat different conditions.

Erectile dysfunction remains prevalent in men aged between 40 and 65 years despite there being a list of effective treatments for the condition. The PRP Procedure is arguably the most advanced natural erectile dysfunction treatment, and it is also the safest. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. The tissue and skin therapy involves extracting platelet-concentrated plasma from your own blood and re-injecting it into the penile tissue in concentrated form. The high concentration of blood platelets and bioactive proteins activate stem cells and release growth hormones.

More importantly, PRP can trigger tissue repair. Since erectile dysfunction in its advanced stages results in Peyronies, a condition that causes the accumulation of scar tissue, causing the penis to curve, PRP is a suitable treatment since it softens the scar tissue and helps the penis to straighten.

The PRP Procedure is safe chiefly because no new substances are introduced into the body. If performed correctly within a sterile environment, there is a very little risk of developing an allergic reaction. Furthermore, PRP is almost always effective in treating erectile dysfunction since the therapy involves the use of known tissue generation substances from your own body. Using the EmCyte PurePRPII, the most advanced PRP extraction system, helps to increase the concentration of platelets extracted to improve the chances of the treatment working as desired.

This procedure restores the penis’s ability to become erect and increases the time during which it stays erect. It also improves sensation, since the bioactive proteins also restore tissue sensitivity, and can considerably enhance the cosmetic appearance of the penis in general. The procedure is fairly quick, although a number of treatment sessions will be needed, spanning between 4 to 8 weeks depending on the patient. Expect to see results within the first four weeks or so, but also, anticipate having to bear the scars of the procedure for up to a year and a quarter.

Hair removal technology has come a long way to what it is today. If you’re looking for laser hair removal Perth to ensure the quick, permanent, and mostly painless removal of hair from all over the body, look no further than Academy Face and Body.  For men, these regions of unwanted hair include the back and chest while women focus on their legs, underarms, face, and bikini region.

Also referred to as IPL, laser hair removal technology works by focusing strong beams of light onto hair follicles. The pigmentation in the follicles absorbs this strong light and turns it into equally strong heat which then kills the hairs in the follicle. The highly targeted nature of the procedure makes it easy on the surrounding skin.

Prior to undergoing the procedure, patients are required to avoid overexposure to the sun for four weeks. During this period, they are also expected use a high SPF sunscreen and refrain from tweezing or plucking out the unwanted hair. Shaving is allowed and becomes necessary shortly before the procedure begins.

The procedure itself is relatively painless, although mild discomfort might be experienced in some cases. A cooling system on the laser head makes it more bearable. Since only 60% of your hair is in the anagen (growth) period at any given time, a total of 6 to 8 sessions might be required to completely remove the unwanted hair. Follow-up sessions every six to twelve months may also be necessary. Following the procedure, patients might experience a slight burning sensation on the treated area. This can be alleviated by some ice or a cold compress.

Between sessions, patients are allowed a bit of recovery time for any damaged follicles to heal. For body treatments, 8 to 12 weeks can be allowed between sessions while face treatment sessions are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Post-treatment precautions are necessary in this case. For instance, patients are advised to avoid strong direct sunlight or any exfoliation treatments during the first week or so after the treatment. Furthermore, hot showers can be an ordeal since the treated region becomes very sensitive and can be prone to blistering. If a blister or some form of crusting does appear, it is important to refrain from picking at it since this newly treated skin is also highly vulnerable to scarring.
