The Best Non-Hormonal Treatments For Acne

Posted by Andrew on 11-Oct-2018 11:57:18

Acne is a skin condition typically associated with teenagers, however it also affects around a quarter of adult women. For years, the standard treatment for adult acne in females has been the oral contraceptive, or birth control pill. However, taking synthetic hormones every day is not suitable for many women. Taking the pill carries the risk of side effects including mood changes, depression, weight gain, changes in libido and deep vein thrombosis.

The pill works by limiting the stimulatory effect that androgens have on the skin. In women, androgens are hormones that are responsible for more than 200 cellular actions.  If your androgen receptors are particularly sensitive, these hormones can trigger excess oil production, leading to clogged pores, inflammation and breakouts.

4 Reasons Why Most Cellulite Treatments Don't Work

Posted by Andrew on 07-Sep-2018 09:39:16

Cellulite plagues the vast majority of women, so why hasn’t an effective treatment become as mainstream as facials for example? There are two main reasons why; a) too many products have failed to live up to their promises and consumers have lost trust, and b) because around 99% of treatments and products don’t address all 4 areas that are essential for successful cellulite reduction.

Cellulite is the result of subcutaneous fat cells pushing up against the skin, separated by connective tissue, called septa. It is the septa pulling down that causes the valley in the skin, and the clusters of fat cells pushing up that creates the hill. With age comes diminishing collagen and elastin, and hence the skin also loses its strength and elasticity.

How To Lift & Tighten Eyelids, Eye Bags & Crows Feet Without Surgery

Posted by Andrew on 20-Aug-2018 09:51:36

Eye bags, crows feet and droopy eyelids can add years to your appearance, and in some cases, excess eyelid skin can affect eye function and vision. Hooded eyelids can also make applying makeup very difficult.

Previously, eyelid surgery, referred to as blepharoplasty, was the most common option for eyelid lift and tightening. Now however, we have a safe and effective non-surgical solution with minimal downtime, at a fraction of the cost of surgery.

Hyperpigmentation Vs Melasma & How To Successfully Treat It

Posted by Andrew on 09-Aug-2018 12:18:56

Freckles, age spots, solar lentigines and post-inflammatory discolouration following an acne breakout, all come under the umbrella term of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation can refer to any darkening of the skin and can be instigated by numerous factors. Sun exposure is a leading cause for many pigmentation concerns, however hormonal influences are the key driver for melasma, a type of hyperpigmentation that is in a class of its own. 

Melasma typically develops during pregnancy, whilst taking the oral contraceptive pill, or during hormonal therapy. Melasma is identified by blotchy, hyperpigmented areas on the face, typically appearing on the upper lip, nose, cheeks, jawline and forehead and can develop symmetrically on both sides of the face. Melasma is exacerbated by heat and sun exposure and is more common for those with darker skin tones.

Why People Aren't Happy After CoolSculpting or Liposuction

Posted by Andrew on 11-Jul-2018 15:48:44

It can be pretty devastating if you pin your hopes, invest your money, and in the case of liposuction, endure a substantial amount of pain and long recovery period, with a cosmetic fat reduction procedure only to be disappointed with the results. Unfortunately, for some people that is the reality. The decision then is to live with it or invest more in corrective procedures.

Loose skin and unevenness are common side effects from liposuction and fat freezing treatments, and also following significant weight loss. Persistent cellulite is a typical disappointment with many fat reduction procedures.

Top Non-Invasive Anti-Wrinkle Treatments For Natural Results

Posted by Andrew on 19-Jun-2018 12:51:41

Anti-wrinkle injections are perhaps the most common form of anti-ageing cosmetic procedure today in terms of immediate, noticeable results with minimal downtime. To address wrinkles, muscle relaxants are used to stop the skin creasing and fillers are used to plump, add volume and also lift the valley of stubborn wrinkles. The key drawback is that cosmetic injections can, and do change the way you look. Over time, they can give a very unnatural appearance to facial features. There is also the consideration of injecting toxins or synthetic compounds into your skin.

The resounding benefit of anti-wrinkle treatment using scientifically-based and clinically proven devices is that you get a completely natural result as your body tightens and smooths skin, and builds new collagen where it has been lost due to ageing, without fundamentally altering your features.

Resolve vs Fraxel: An Honest Comparison of Laser Facial Rejuvenation

Posted by Andrew on 12-Dec-2017 15:35:35

Fraxel is a brand of fractional laser rejuvenation. Fractional laser concept relies on creating hundreds of thousands of tiny pinpoint columns of damage in the skin. Fractional means the columns of lasers are divided in grids and leaves untouched tissue between the damage. This has the advantage of speeding up healing and stimulates the production of collagen. Fraxel has launched a number of versions since the Fraxel Re:store was first released.

Leaving active acne untreated often leads to scarring – deep crater-style scars, raised scars and discolouration are all the tell-tail signs of previous acne.

There are two options for facial rejuvenation: surgical and non-surgical. The surgical option is facelift surgery, which remains the most effective and long lasting treatment available. However, the costs and risks associated with surgery have produced a demand for cheaper, safer alternatives.

In this article, we look at recent advances in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, plus introduce ResolveTM, a new treatment option featuring the most cutting-edge technology.

How To Treat Spider Veins Post Pregnancy

Posted by Andrew on 31-May-2017 11:04:44

During pregnancy, not only are your hormones raging, you also have an increased volume of blood plus the additional weight that pregnancy brings that all lead to increased pressure on your veins. This increased pressure can force them to the surface of the skin to become very visible.

Spider veins (or telangiectasia) commonly form during pregnancy due to hormone changes and the added stress on your veins. Spider veins are a form of vascular lesion which are malformations of veins, capillaries, lymphatic vessels and arteries. They appear as red, purple or bluish lines or clusters of lines on the legs, nose, face and neck and they can make you feel self-conscious.

The Science Behind Body Contouring with Skin Tightening

Posted by Andrew on 24-May-2017 11:13:01

Have you ever pondered the body’s incredible potential to heal itself? Our bodies are continually repairing and restoring and modern aesthetic science has harnessed this by developing devices that trigger your body to regenerate in the targeted treatment areas.   

Ageing and weight loss are two key contributors to loose or sagging skin. As we age, our skin loses elasticity as the collagen and elastin becomes weaker and production of new cells slows. Following weight loss, the skin may not entirely shrink back if it has been over-stretched or stretched for a long period of time.

Syneron-Candela has created innovative technology, the VelaShape III, that stimulates your body to produce new collagen and elastin to smooth and tighten skin with the added benefit of body contouring.

Have you noticed dark patches of pigmentation on your face since taking the contraceptive pill, or during pregnancy? It could be melasma.

What Causes Acne: 12 Common Triggers Plus Solutions

Posted by Andrew on 14-Feb-2017 11:22:25

To help you tackle the cause of your acne, we’ve come up with a list of 12 potential culprits. Acne can be frustrating and sometimes even depressing but if you’re armed with the information on what could be causing your acne, you’re on the way to finding the right solution.

Acne results when hair follicles become blocked and inflamed due to an over-production of oil in the skin. The clogged pores promote the growth of bacteria and voila, you have a breakout.  Besides genetics and hormones, understanding your triggers can help narrow down your treatment options. Is it stress? Is it dairy? Is it the make-up you’re wearing? Let’s have a look at some key contributors to breakouts.

Early Treatment of Rosacea Prevents Onset of Serious Symptoms

Rosacea is a skin condition that can make people self aware and this in turn can fuel the condition. Emotions are one of the causes of this confidence impacting skin condition, along with spicy food, hot drinks, temperature fluctuations, stress, alcohol, exercise and certain drugs. The symptoms are easy to treat early on, however if left untreated the condition typically escalates into much more serious symptoms.

The management of this skin condition requires a tailored treatment plan based on your particular skin type and symptoms.

Why Sublative Repairs Acne Scars Better Than Ablative Lasers

Posted by Andrew on 12-Jan-2017 06:29:50

CO2 ablative laser resurfacing hit the media years ago for its frequent side effect of hypopigmentation. Side effects were common due to the lasers being slower and hotter than they are today. The technology has improved over the years, however the results from laser resurfacing come at a cost. In addition to hypopigmentation, you can expect pain, significant downtime with redness and swelling lasting from weeks to months along with a high risk of infection and scarring. The traditional (and outdated) view was that the more aggressive the resurfacing, the better the results, however revolutionary radio frequency technology is turning this assumption on its head.

SublativeTM treatment for acne scars uses radio frequency rather than laser and penetrates deep into the dermis whilst leaving the epidermis largely unharmed. This means minimal downtime with maximum effect on the scarred tissue.

It can be an area that is overlooked when applying sunscreen and the shade from a hat often doesn’t cover it, leaving your skin susceptible to sun damage.

Safe Pigmentation Removal For Dark Skin Types

Posted by Andrew on 22-Nov-2016 13:35:41

Visible signs of ageing doesn’t just refer to fine lines and wrinkles. The more telling signs of ageing are age spots. Also called solar lentigines and liver spots, age spots are flat tan, brown or black spots. They usually appear on the face, shoulders, arms and hands — areas most exposed to the sun. They vary in size and are very common in adults older than age 50. With Australia’s harsh climate, we see age spots in clients much younger than this, with people seeking treatment as early as their thirties.

For people with dark skin types, treatment options are limited due to the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation on darker skin. PicoWay is the leading technology for safe and effective pigmentation removal for all skin types and is the only choice for skin type III and above.

The Science Behind The Best Acne & Acne Scar Treatment

Posted by Andrew on 01-Aug-2016 10:05:27

There are many treatment options available to improve the appearance and texture of the skin, or to treat acne and acne scars. The method of choice in the last few years has involved laser technology, either to remove the outer layers of the skin to promote new skin growth (CO2 or Er:YAG), or to penetrate the skin to promote rejuvenation from within (fractional thermolysis).

Although effective for treating a variety of skin conditions, they do have their limitations, and in particular can cause hypopigmentation, areas of uneven skin colour, lasting up to two years after treatment. Fractional lasers were safe, but less effective, and required more treatments to achieve acceptable results.

A more recent development has been fractional thermolysis using radio frequency (RF) energy, instead of laser energy, to stimulate skin rejuvenation that is as effective as laser energy, but has a much lower risk of side effects. The leading device that uses RF energy is the eTwo SublativeTM Skin Treatment System. This article explains the science behind radio frequency energy and why it is effective for acne scar treatment.
